Spring Cleanse to Improve Immunity & Reduce Allergies

The start of Spring brings longer days and blooming flowers. Along with all we enjoy though the seasonal change can pull on our immune systems due to allergic reactions and underlying inflammation. Pollen and other environmental allergies are just a part of what can cause our immune system to weaken.

The liver is a great mediator of inflammation in the body, and when it is working overtime metabolizing our stress hormones, medications, alcohol, and processed foods, allergies can flare. Many factors affect allergic propensity, including genetics (some people are prone to making more IgE antibodies, which mediate the allergic response), gut flora, environmental pollutants, and nutrient deficiencies.

The liver also filters all the blood coming off our digestive tracts; if your gut barrier is “leaky” or inappropriately permeable due to stress, medications, or food sensitivities, large proteins and bits of bacterial cell walls can flood circulation, and overwhelm the liver’s detox capacities, allowing for inappropriate material out in general circulation, where it can trigger the immune system and cause reactivity throughout the body–including in our blood vessels, mucous membranes and the skin.

Lowering our toxic load helps the liver take a much needed break. A nutritional detoxification is one of the best ways to reduce inflammation and improve immune function. Our clients, as well as our team, often take 3 weeks to do a nutritional cleanse once or twice per year. Along with making changes to our diet we engage in other cleansing rituals that include taking inventory of our over-cluttered homes, toxic relationships, negative thought and behavior patterns and other poor influences on our physical and emotional health.
