For those of us in the northern hemisphere, Wednesday was the day of the spring equinox, the alleged end of winter. Here in the UK it certainly didn't feel like it, with freezing temperatures and even snow in many parts of the country!
But officially speaking, spring is here and if we are well, it will bring with it a subtle or not so subtle increase in energy. As all ancient cultures on the planet knew, if we give the body what it needs at this time, we will be reaping the benefits for a long time to come. The two equinoxes are golden opportunities for detoxification because they are the times in the year when the energy to clean house is most readily available and our whole system is in 'letting go' mode.
If we assist the body in its natural desire to detoxify around the time of the equinoxes, we can enjoy better health for months as a result. But there is so much confusion about what is the right way to do this!
