The cold season during which, the body is deprived of sunlight as well as vitamins and minerals from fruits and vegetables due to their improper availability, there is the possibility that the body may be weakened against viruses and bacteria, which get active in spring time. The immune system is also challenged due to the temperature variations during this season.
Experts state that spring is the time for a detoxification therapy and immunization to increase body’s resistance against pathogens. Detoxification therapy is needed after the cold season, because it helps eliminate toxins from the colon, regulates blood pressure and helps prevent serious diseases such as diabetes or cardiovascular disease, to which, the person is exposed due to consuming a diet rich in fats, salt and a sedentary lifestyle during cold season. Also, detoxification therapy restores energy and zeal of life, helps to regain silhouette, skin beauty and strengthens the immune system.
The accentuated sensation of fatigue, the presence of certain disorders, including depression, lack of concentration are symptoms especially in spring, giving out a warning or the need of taking certain measurements to strengthen the body’s resistance, i.e. the immune system. The toxins accumulated in the body come from both external (pollution, food additives, personal care products, etc) as well as internally, as a result of the body’s metabolic processes that take place. The body has its own natural detoxification system, toxins are expelled through the colon, kidney, lung, liver and skin. As a result of lifestyle factors, the over exhausted body cannot handle large amounts of toxins/wastes that need to be neutralized and eliminated.
Nutrition plays a vital role in detoxifying the body. For some people, detoxification means only giving up coffee, alcohol or smoking, but, the efficient purification of the body means more than giving up certain things from diet. Diet is very important, it has a role in helping the body to expel the toxins accumulated during winter due to inappropriate diets. Sweets, animal fats, products containing colors, preservatives and other substances which are harmful for the body, must be excluded from the diet.
An effective detoxification therapy should last at least for 14 days. For a good health of the body, detoxification therapy can be done during every change of season, or at least twice a year. There are few steps which should be taken before starting detoxification therapy, namely: in breakfast, drink water mixed with lemon juice and eat rice with soy milk, in lunch, vegetable soup and spinach can be taken, and in dinner can be eaten vegetable salads and boiled potatoes. Physical exercise (walking) is important, so it is suggested not to delay starting any sports activities beneficial to the body in any season.
Consumption of light diet, intake of diet rich in fiber helps expel toxins and alleviate manifestations of spring asthenia. Fibers can reduce excessive body fat as well as help to expel toxins. Also, dietary fibers help restore beneficial intestinal flora, which were suffered in the winter when food was mainly composed of high fat. Green tea, ginger, blueberries, cinnamon, figs and apples should be on the top of the list of recommended foods for the immune system at the beginning of spring. Other foods recommended in spring detoxification therapy and important for boosting immunity are green vegetables, mushrooms, sprouts, almonds, grapefruit, buttermilk, yogurt, garlic, etc. In general, not only in this period, it is appropriate to adopt a balanced lifestyle, but maintaining the daily rest and periodic holidays are also helpful. In addition to that, diet that contains fat, protein and carbohydrates, as well as vitamins and minerals found in fruits or vegetables is also necessary. Furthermore, it is recommended to avoid conflicting and stressful situations.
Some alternative methods for expelling toxins from the body include sauna and proper lymphatic circulation. Sauna is indicated in case of symptoms related to allergies and viral respiratory diseases, though, not recommended for people with cardiovascular diseases, hypotension, epilepsy, etc. Proper lymphatic drainage (circulation) has the ability to stimulate the body to help assimilate nutrients more easily. This method is not recommended for people with cardiovascular disease or malignancy.
