The beginning of spring is March 21st, the time of the spring equinox, when the hours of the day equal the hours of the night. From now on and for the next 6 months the days are getting longer. This is a good time to flush out the winter and wake up, spring is here!

All Season Tonic is a digestive cleanser. Do you feel as though your digestive system is showing signs of sluggishness? Are you experiencing constipation at this time? Winter season brings in a time when nature hibernates, this includes our bodies. Everything slows down, the body’s energy slows down, and therefore bacteria can collect in our digestive system, depleting our energy and making us feel lethargic. At the beginning of spring, All Season Tonic has shown to be helpful in cleaning out the “residues of winter” and increase vitality on all levels.

Rejuvenating Spring Recipes
Greens have been a traditional part of the spring diet in most cultures, cleansing, refreshing and building the body. They are plentiful at this time of the year in my neighborhood, especially malvas, sorrel and dandelion. If you are not familiar with these plants, find someone who knows to show you around your area. Mix your greens with virgin olive oil, lemon juice and a little garlic, and eat as a salad.
Drink freshly pressed lemon juice in a small amount of water first thing in the morning. Do not eat anything for at least 30 minutes after drinking it. Lemon is a perfect liver food and a great body cleanser. High in vitamin C, potassium and other minerals, lemons are somewhat astringent, meaning that hey contract and tighten tissues, which loosens up and clears toxins from deep tissues and organs.
