Fall is right around the corner. Are you ready to take advantage of this seasonal transition? In Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM), fall is the best time of year to let go of physical, mental and emotional “baggage.” Just as trees lose their leaves and nature goes into hibernation, we can also let go of whatever is holding us back and enter the cool weather seasons with more clarity, energy and nourishment. It all starts with a gentle cleanse program. By taking steps to strengthen your digestion, immune system and overall health with simple detox methods, you can boost vitality in preparation for the cold winter months.
Don’t Let Summer’s Bloat Sink You
Summer can be a time of indulgence. But all the BBQs, parties, vacations, late nights and hot weather can take a toll on health — hindering digestion and circulation, fueling dehydration and triggering inflammation. The end results are exhaustion and bloating, or worse. A simple fall cleanse is an excellent way to help combat these excesses, and in the process shed unnecessary pounds and toxins, promote efficient digestion and support immunity for cold and flu season.*
Nutrition is at the heart of a successful cleanse. Emphasize unprocessed, nutrient-dense, plant-based meals flavored with superfood spices such as ginger, turmeric, rosemary and garlic. Avoid red meat, sugar, and dairy, and focus on legumes, nuts and seeds, and plenty of green vegetables. The nutrients and added fiber in your diet will assist with cleansing and elimination, leaving you feeling lighter and more energized. Also, be sure to drink six to eight glasses of filtered water a day (this can include caffeine-free teas), to help flush out toxins and keep digestion moving.
To deepen and enhance your cleanse, include specific detoxification formulas with botanicals, nutrients and extracts to help clear toxins and heavy metals from the circulation and support organs of elimination. ecoNugenics PectaClear® made with clinically proven PectaSol-C® Modified Citrus Pectin and alginates, helps remove heavy metals and toxins from the digestion and circulation.
ecoDetox™ promotes deeper removal of toxins from organs and tissues, while providing key support for detoxification pathways, methylation function, antioxidant activity, vital energy and more.*
Powerful Herbs for Digestive Health
Strong digestion and regular elimination are critical to any detox program, and form the foundation for long-term health. In colder months, it’s particularly important that the digestive process retains its heat, flow and movement.
ecoNugenics Integrative Digestive Formula® is an herbal blend that can assist digestion and promote healthy elimination during a cleanse, or whenever you need extra support.
This gentle, comprehensive formula integrates prized botanicals from Traditional Chinese, Tibetan and Ayurvedic health systems, together with nutraceutical ingredients shown to support digestive function. Integrative Digestive Formula® promotes long-term digestive health while also relieving occasional discomfort. The 19 herbs and nutrients in this physician-designed formula help with occasional acid indigestion & sluggish digestion, assist nutrient absorption, and support overall gastrointestinal health. Time-honored digestive botanicals such as pomegranate seed, cardamom, cinnamon, ginger and deglycyrrhizinated licorice (DGL), work synergistically with plant-based enzymes and nutrients to support a healthy digestive system during seasonal cleansing, and all year round.*
Letting Go: Physically, Mentally and Emotionally
In TCM, the fall season relates to the large intestines, the lungs and to unresolved emotions. Seasonal cleansing can be an excellent holistic method to help release toxins on all levels, including emotions and negative thought patterns. You can see the connection between strengthening digestion and cleansing on an emotional and psychological level. Incorporating meditation practices, yoga, and walking in nature can all go a long way to support the process. With these holistic methods, even a light cleanse can help renew health and vitality on all levels.*
