Spring Detox and Immunostimulating ourselves
My grandmother always said, “No matter how cold the winter is, there is always spring afterwards.”
The wise men of the town, here in the Tuscan Maremma, say that the months with an 'R' are those where the sun is treacherous, it seems hot and then it screws you over!
This is why elderly farmers don't take off their flannel shirts before summer really arrives.
While mother nature in all her explosion of beauty invites us to go out, the spring climate often also brings ailments.
There are only two methods to arrive strong at the change of season.
Purification is a very important practice according to Chinese Medicine which is based on the fact that spring is the season in which Nature renews itself and awakens. This is exactly what happens to the body, after inactivity during the winter months.
If we do not purify ourselves during the winter, we help the proliferation of free radicals, with which we have an accumulation of toxins that will create inflammation and inhibit the functionality of some organs.
Toxins, when there are too many, slow down the functioning of the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs and the skin will prove to be 'unhealthy'.
Imagine your organs full of waste that take a great effort to perform the simplest tasks for which they exist.
After a detox cycle, you will feel your body with better digestion, regular intestinal transit, you will not have headaches, your eyes will see better,
you will have softer, hydrated, toned and impurity-free skin, thicker hair, more energy during the day and your mood will be positive.
Here are the perfect products, selected for you, for a top Bio-detox:
organic spirulina: to absorb and expel heavy metals present in the body
organic rosemary essential oil: to purify the liver
organic bay leaf hydrolate: to eliminate bad bacteria in your home and on clothes during ironing, using it in the water of your iron or in the washing machine,
organic saffron pistils: anti-inflammatory and anticoagulant, controls cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood, lowers blood pressure and reduces cardiovascular risk. Antioxidant, it protects against damage caused by free radicals and food toxins, pollution, smoke and UV rays. Rich in OMEGA 3, OMEGA 6 and Vitamin E.
Password STRENGTHEN (mind and body)
The best form of prevention against pathogenic microorganisms that can cause an infection does not lie in a cure but in having a perfectly functioning immune system capable of protecting our body from possible aggressions 24 hours a day. This is why we must have a high immune system not only in winter, but 365 days a year.
The TOP product for stimulating the immune system is Spirulina which, in addition to strengthening, also gives strength, concentration and desire to do.
The ally that supports and stimulates the defenses is Vitamin C which, in addition to being immunostimulant, is an antiviral and antioxidant. VitC is not stored by the body, in fact it uses what it needs and eliminates the excess through urine. This is why we must take vitamin C every day.
Without purchasing products that come from the other side of the world, with the consequent pollution caused by transport, we have in Italy, the dog rose with its red berries known for having an antioxidant and antimicrobial action, rich in flavonoids and phenolic acids.
Its action can be used preventively or in the treatment of colds, gastrointestinal disorders, infections, various inflammatory diseases and chronic pain.
For your curiosity, this Italian berry also acts on oxidative stress and the resulting inflammation and can also be useful against diseases, such as type 2 diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis and obesity, which are favored by this condition.
Thanks to its astringent properties, it counteracts diarrhea: it acts through a mechanism that induces an accumulation of liquids, reduces intestinal transit, increasing the absorption of water and electrolytes. Some tests have demonstrated the antibacterial effect against both Gram positive and Gram negative bacteria, and against Helicobacter pylori as well as the bacteria that cause urinary tract infections.

Last but not least in terms of importance on how to naturally prevent seasonal ailments and strengthen the immune system is the queen of plants, Echinacea which personally in these last years of 'delirium', I have taken every day and it has made me stay healthy and strong.
The very last piece of advice is linked to the mind which when 'healthy' creates a 'healthy' body
St. John's wort flowers in herbal tea before going to bed or St. John's wort capsules to take if necessary, help the mind to see things for what they are in reality, without fixating on secondary problems. St. John's wort relaxes the mind and body, makes you have deep and peaceful dreams but doesn't slow down your day. It conflicts with some medicines and hormone therapies. Read all the information carefully before taking it.
These are my recommendations. Take care of yourself and the people you love. Erika
