Spring is here and you may be feeling motivated to maximize your health and increase your energy. This is a great time of year to detoxify your mind, body and spirit.
Consider simplifying your life by reducing clutter and donating clothing and household items you no longer use. Get rid of fatigue and extra pounds by increasing your outdoor activities as the weather warms up. Clean up your diet and take a break from sugar, caffeine, alcohol and processed foods. Drink more water, reduce stress and improve the quality of your sleep.
Easier said than done right? Your ND can develop an individualized detox plan for you, which may also include herbs, homeopathy, or nutritional supplements to help your liver and other detox organs function as smoothly as possible. Pre-packaged detox supplements and diet plans are not safe for everyone so make sure to check with your ND before starting a detox.

For Your Health
Did you know...
Most extended health care benefits cover Naturopathic services?
The advantages of green tea
Green tea contains many beneficial polyphenols, including the heavily studied ECGC. Research has shown that green tea, and ECGC can minimize inflammation, help control cholesterol levels, reduce the spread of cancer, and contribute to the maintenance of balanced blood sugar levels. If you are a coffee drinker, consider switching to green tea. If you do not currently consume caffeinated beverages, look for a caffeine-free green tea.
