Spring Cleaning!


Spring is just around the corner and an undeniable urge to clean out the stagnant energy of Winter may be creeping in. For many of us, spring cleaning is an annual ritual, a time when we deep clean the house, the closets, the yard… and our bodies. After this long stagnant Covid 19 of a year filled with heavy foods and less activity, you might have the overwhelming urge to do a harsh, short-term cleanse just to feel better, but this can actually do the body more harm than good.
Here at Journey Health Shop, it is my philosophy that "cleansing" should be a process in which you are supporting the major organs of the body so that they can optimally function. I recommend herbs and remedies to naturally support the liver, kidneys, lungs and gastrointestinal system which will move stagnant energy and release built up toxins. We all need a break sometimes, and this includes our hard-working organs! With the simple implementation of a few daily routines, you can be well on your way to a healthier and more vital existence.

Why Herbal Spring Tonics? Cultures from all over the world have created and used cleansing tonics for centuries, especially in the spring. Spring tonics were very popular back when our winter diets consisted of whatever stores we could preserve in the fall. Spring tonics were believed to remove impurities from our blood, purify the system and give us more energy for the hard work to be done during growing season.
Spring tonics are still a wonderful way to rid your body of built-up toxins and start preparing for the active warm days ahead. Most spring tonics are used to stimulate the kidney, liver and gall bladder since these organs tend to accumulate a lot of waste during the winter from being so sedentary and eating a heavy diet. A tonic herb is focused on a particular part of the body and is used to bring it to a proper balance for normal functioning.
Spring Tonic Compound: Ingredients:
· Burdock root is a wonderful blood purifier. It cleanses the liver by stimulating the flow of bile. This herb has been used to treat skin problems such as acne, psoriasis and eczema which are possible signs of an imbalance in the liver.
· Chickweed speeds fat metabolism and increases overall energy levels.
· Cleavers purifies the blood, stimulates lymphatic drainage and is a strong diuretic.
· Dandelion Root is wonderful for the liver and gall bladder. It has a mild laxative effect, high in potassium and increases iron absorption.
· Nettle Leaf is another popular spring tonic and it’s a very nutritive herb. This herb stimulates the kidneys, cleans the blood and is a great source of iron, calcium, magnesium and potassium.
· Yellow Dock acts as a mild laxative and has a blood-cleansing effect. It is also high in iron.
