Ahhh spring! The blossoms on the trees remind me of a new cycle of growth that comes with sunshine and rain. That new cycle is also happening in our bodies and spring is an amazing time to support the bodies capacity to detoxify so we can stay healthy. Chinese medicine has always proclaimed spring to be an important time for liver and gall bladder support as we are coming out of winter and spring is a natural time for cleaning, hence “spring cleaning”.

It has since become our “womb room” and has been a key player in keeping my elimination channels flowing.
