Our bodies are like giant sponges; soaking up everything around us. There's the good stuff--the essential stuff--like oxygen, nutrients from food, Vitamin D from the sunshine, knowledge and information from everyday experiences...and then there's the not-so-good stuff.
Our environment is increasingly full of chemicals and unwanted organisms that we come into contact with daily, and much of it is absorbed into our body one way or another; breathing in contaminated air, eating foods sprayed with chemicals, physical contact with broken skin--there's always a way for it to enter your system.
Our body is an amazing system, however, and most of this unwanted material is excreted naturally through sweat, digestive elimination, and the like. There are times, however, when your body just can't keep up. And after a long winter, we’re all ready to shake out the rugs, dust off the patio, and make the windows shine once again.
Spring cleaning is a tradition that allows us to freshen up our homes and get a head start on the hectic seasons of spring and summer.
But, it’s not just our homes that need cleaning. A spring cleanse of your body is important too. Even if you exercise during the winter, most people still feel reduced energy levels during the cold, dark months. This is a result of our body’s ancient seasonal need to harbor more fat for warmth and survival. Plus, winter’s shorter days, which are often without any sunshine, lead to reduced vitamin D levels and leave us less able to use nutrients efficiently.
Nature has designed spring as the perfect time for a cleanse. Winter weather illnesses leave our bodies with accumulated toxins. Thick winter clothing has trapped in what usually exits through our skin via perspiration. Additionally, heavy, cold-weather comfort food has fallen short of delivering all of our nutrient needs.
Besides cleaning up your diet and taking advantage of fresh spring greens and detoxifying fruit, you can benefit from herbal remedies to take your cleanse to the next level. You may not even be aware of your clogged and compromised systems until you do a cleanse.
An effective internal cleanse can remove intestinal dwellers, something that herbalists estimate plagues 80%-90% of the population, causing an array of health concerns.

Here at Mountain Meadow Herbs, we offer simple and natural solutions to cleanse and rebuild your systems this spring for peak health the rest of the year!
