Subject: Spring Detox and Dandelion Tea
(Posted on Apr 3, 2013 at 06:22AM by Dr Anna Arsenault)
Spring cleaning is not just for your home! The spring season is a transitional time between winter and summer when there is natural flux within the environment. This also means that it is a great time to sweep out toxins stored in your body, and prepare for a warmer and more active time of the year. There are many options when it comes to detoxification of the body, and what is best for you depends on your particular state of health, activity level and diet. 

An easy way to stimulate the cells in your body to eliminate the toxins they have stored within them is to drink dandelion root tea. This natural diuretic and cholegogue stimulates the liver to produce bile, and aids in digestion and detoxification. As an added bonus, dandelion root also has anti-cancer effects!
