The Best Time To Detox According To Chinese Medicine

As winter fades and spring emerges, it's time to shake off the stagnation of the past few months. According to Chinese medicine, the best time to detoxify the body is during the spring season. The liver is considered the primary organ responsible for detoxification in Chinese medicine, and it is believed to be particularly active during the spring.

In Chinese medicine theory, the liver energy moves upward and outward during the spring, which is associated with growth, renewal, and regeneration. This is why spring is considered the best time to detoxify the body and support the liver in its natural cleansing process. By incorporating these practices into our lives, we can embrace the vitality of spring and start the season off on a refreshed note.


What Teas Support Natural and Healthy Detox?

Daily Detox

While most detox teas are glorified laxatives, Daily Detox supports your body to do what it already does naturally: detoxify itself. It's able to help this process by supporting your liver, kidneys and lymphatic system, which are the body's systems for removing toxins. It contains herbs like Dandelion Leaf and Milk Thistle, that support your liver, and Cleavers and Calendula for lymphatic support.

Smooth Jazz

If you're feeling stopped up and feel like your digestive system needs a cleanse, this is a fantastic tea for you. Although coffee might help in the moment, it'll likely result in a nagging coffee dependency every morning, with constipation that comes in the evenings.  "Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish" know the rest.  Botanicals like chicory root and dandelion root teach your body to produce healthy bowel movements. Years of not eating enough fiber, not drinking enough water and consuming processed foods will leave your body feeling stuck. If you start using Smooth Jazz regularly, you will be teaching your digestive system to cleanse itself again.
