Dieting vs Seasonal Cleansing

There's a lot to think about when it comes to being healthy; What should you eat? When should you eat it? How should it be prepared? Should you take supplements? Which supplements? Should you take medications? Which ingredients are safe? What is causing the fatigue, headaches, joint pain, weight gain, brain fog, high blood pressure, blood sugar problems, bloating, bowel irritation, etc.?

Hey, we’ve all been there before. You promised yourself that you'd eat healthier and cut out sugar or candy or soda pop or go on a specific diet. You were probably on roll too…maybe lost some weight, started exercising, had more energy and just felt better about yourself. Am I right? Remember how good it felt?

Why is it that for some reason life gets in the way and before you know it - you're stopping for a latte twice a day for some energy (instead of eating your veggies), skipping your workout and sneaking chocolate bars or cookies on the drive to pick up the kids from school or on the way home from work. Or perhaps you just start making excuses for low energy and chalking it all up to being "OLD". The fact is - you CAN feel great if you make the changes necessary to allow your body to work the way it's supposed to no matter what age you are. When our body systems get clogged up with toxins from processed, out-of-season, acidifying food, high lectin foods and bad habits they don't operate at their best and can start to show signs of wear and tear from not being tuned up once in a while. Simply put – you need a RESET or what we call a SEASONAL CLEANSE!

Most people feel they need a “diet” when these undesirable health situations start to creep up on them. But does a diet truly address the ROOT of the problem?

What we are really looking for is a PLAN. Something that can help take out the guesswork and thinking. A plan that is DONE FOR US is attractive. Especially if it comes with a promise of losing weight right?! But what if losing weight was the only thing it did, and if it was only for a short period of time? This is in fact the reality for the vast majority of people who use fad "Diets" and expect them to help us lose weight. A "healthy diet" is different that a "diet". But what if we didn't need a "Diet" at all and we had another way to LOSE WEIGHT PLUS get all the other health benefits we are looking for. After all, losing weight doesn't really help you much if you still have pain, headaches and can't sleep!

Diets fads are a dime a dozen. The latest are Keto and Paleo, but there are hundreds more offering the promise of weight loss among other things. Some work for cutting weight, some don’t, some make you feel worse, some better but NONE of them work all the time. Most result in rebound weight gain after stopping and those darn symptoms of poor health start to creep back again – why is that?

It’s because you have not addressed the ROOT cause of the problem. Your body needs a specific seasonal cleanse to adjust naturally to a specific time of year - primarily after the equinox in the spring and then again in the fall. That includes changing some habits that don’t support your health. It means gently removing toxins that impede proper organ function and consuming foods that your body can easily digest and metabolize during the process.

I’ve been coaching people through seasonal cleanses since 2011 and I think it’s truly one of the best things anyone can do to get meaningful results quickly, yet learn valuable tools that make a difference in all aspects of your health. Our Fall Cleanse is like an overhaul or a “tune-up” for your body. Not the typical “bowel blowout” detox you’ve may have associated the word “Cleansing” to. Our cleanse program is a gentle, natural adjustment to seasonal eating and organ optimization using the latest understanding of how seasonal foods with the highest digestibility and herbs that can assist your body into a winterization state. Just because we are human – it doesn’t mean we don’t need to respect the seasons as do all animals and plants and fungi. All other species on the planet change with the seasons in order to THRIVE. They adjust what they consume based on what is available to them at that time of year.

Through my experience as a farmer and a nutrition coach – I’ve learned that if we respect the seasons mother nature offers us – we can thrive as do plants, animals, fungi and all other kingdoms of life. I truly believe that the best “diet” is the one that mother nature offers us each and every season.

If you don’t give your body a seasonal “tune-up” and flush the fluids, revitalize organs, top up on nutrients and avoid the bad habits that don’t positively impact your health, well, you could get yourself in a pickle! Being in a pickle when it comes to health means that you start to notice signs and symptoms of poor health such as pains, headaches, fatigue, blood sugar imbalances, cholesterol problems, blood pressure imbalances, skin problems, digestive problems, hormone issues and more. No different than your vehicle if you didn’t ever get the oil changed, brakes fixed and fluids replaced every 5000km or so. All of these symptoms are signs that the body is finding it hard to operate normally. Instead your organs may be actually working harder and using up valuable resources such as trace minerals and nutrients at an unsustainable rate. This can cause other body systems to compensate and create these “dis-eases”. It’s hard to get out of a pickle when it comes to health. Before you know it you’re taking some sort of medication without a plan to get off of it. You may start to believe that you actually need medications and they become another excuse to avoid dietary changes, lifestyle adjustments, natural supplements and natures bountiful foods and plants in fear of contraindications. No matter if you’re in a pickle or not – seasonal cleansing will help you be more of the person you want to be. You give your car a regular tune-up to avoid symptoms and breakdowns, but are you giving yourself a regular tune up so that you don’t start breaking down?

Yes, it takes some serious commitment and effort, but anything worth having does. Your health is worth it!
