It is getting close to the end of the dark and cold northern season.
In the next few months life will be unfurling its leaves and reaching out for the sun after its long winter’s rest. With this burst of Spring sun comes a renewed source of energy and drive in ourselves and the world around us.
This natural regeneration of life makes it the opportune time of year to work on ourselves and enhance healthy practices over the coming season. Traditionally, at this time of year people would be mostly fasting and grazing on the young shoots and fresh greens as they started to become available.
Many of the first plants that come up naturally stimulate our body’s cleansing mechanisms. Specifically the liver and eliminatory channels, helping to shed the accumulation of toxins and stagnation we’ve built up over the winter season.
