Spring Detox from Your OWN Kitchen

Spring Tips for Melting Away Winter Build-Up




1. Melting of fats from the winter, enter our blood and liver quickly as soon as it warms up!


2. Some people experience the shift from Winter to Spring with immediate illness such as:

* Cold-like nasal drip down the back of the throat

* Coughs, sneezes, sinus complaints

* Ear pressure issues

* Skin feeling cool and moist

* Symptoms suggesting hay-fever or leaky gut

* "Damp Hots" like the flu

* Heart racing, high blood pressure and or squeezing sensations in the chest


PLEASE NOTE (call 000 first) and always consult a medical professional with any heart complications)


3. IF NO KNOWN ALLOPATHIC CAUSE AFTER CONSULTING A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL of these above symptoms, it may be due to the change of season and the excess congestion in the blood and liver due to melting fats entering the circulatory system.
