Spring Detox and Immunostimulating ourselves
My grandmother always said, "No matter how cold 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 you care!
That's why elderly farmers don't take off their flannel shirts until summer really arrives.
While mother nature in all her explosion of beauty invites us to go out, spring weather is often also the bearer of 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 and awakens. This is precisely what also happens to the body after inactivity during the winter months.
If we don't purify ourselves from 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 too many, slow down the functionality of the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs and the skin will prove to be 'unhealthy'.
Imagine your organs full of waste that last a great deal of effort to perform the simplest tasks for which they exist.
After a detox cycle, your body will feel 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:
bio spirulina: to absorb and expel heavy metals present in the body
organic rosemary essential oil: to purify the liver
organic laurel hydrolat: to eliminate bad bacteria in your home and on clothes while ironing, using it in the water of your iron or in the washing machine
organic saffron pistils combined with organic hemp oil: 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 REINFORCE (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 need to have a high immune system not only in winter, but 365 days a year.
The TOP product to stimulate 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 an 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 the urine. For this we must take vitamin C every day.
Without buying products that come from the other side of the world, with the consequent pollution caused by transport, we have in Italy, Rosa canina 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 consequent 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 both against 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 prevent seasonal ailments in a natural way and strengthen the immune system is the queen of plants, Echinacea which I personally have taken every day in these last years of 'delirium' and it has made me stay healthy and strong.
Very last advice is related to the mind that when it is 'healthy' it creates a 'healthy' body
St. John's wort flowers in herbal tea before going to bed or St. John's wort capsules to be taken if necessary, help the mind to see things for what they really are, without focusing on secondary problems. Hypericum relaxes the mind and body, makes you have deep and peaceful dreams but does not slow down your day. It conflicts with some medicines and hormonal therapies. Read all the information carefully before hiring him.
These are my recommendations. Take care of yourself and the people you love. Erika
