Spring Clean to a Healthier You!

clean-1346683_1280

As the days slowly get warmer and sunny and the blossoms and flower buds begin to emerge, spring ignites an energy of anticipation, growth and life. Take advantage of this time of year and new-found energy to spring clean your life. The best way to tackle spring cleaning is to break it down into manageable bit size actions. Consider implementing a few of this health centered strategies:

1. Declutter Your Space – During the hibernation of the winter months, it is easy to get bogged down in our homes, offices and living spaces with clutter. Free yourself of the excess stuff clogging up your life and energy.

ACTION: Spend 10 minutes each day tackling one small space, pile, file, corner, basket, closet etc. Purge yourself all unnecessary items.

2. Purify Your Air – Diffuse doTerra’s Purify Cleansing Blend throughout your home. Purify Purify is an exclusive combination of essential oils that purify and eradicate odors in a natural, safe way. This uplifting blend combines citrus and pine essential oils that leave an airy, fresh scent on surfaces and in the air.

ACTION: Add three to four drops of doTerra’s Purify (or any other cleansing/purifying essential oil) to the diffuser of your choice and run it for 2-4 hours in each room of your house. Need to replenish your essential oil supply or don’t know how to get started? Contact Michele at 250.920.8687 or info@westcoastreflexology.com.

3. Drink More Water – Water cleanses our bodies of toxins and helps to fuel very cell in our bodies. The best spring cleaning practices you can get into to improve your overall health is to drink more water.

ACTION: Try drinking 1 glass of water 30 minutes before each meal, throughout the day and every day.

4. Get Outside & Garden – Gardening has been proven to be one of the best ways to fight stress, get exercise and relax. Daily exposure to the sun can boost your mood, increase energy levels, and improve your overall health. Regular exposure to organic soil helps to increase the good bacteria in your body.

Action: Spend 15 minutes a day tending to garden space. Don’t have a big yard? Try container gardening, community garden or caring for a neighbour’s yard.

5. Ditch the ChemicalsBefore you go crazy cleaning every nook and cranny of your home, office or living space, take inventory of your cleaning supplies and throw out any with hazardous chemicals. Most harsh cleaning products are full of toxins that can mess with our immune and respiratory systems.

ACTION: Try using chemical free-products (like lemon juice, white vinegar, water and baking soda). Look for environmentally friendly, all-natural cleaners or make your own. The internet is full of cheap DIY recipes.

Natural Treatments for Allergy Season

It’ so wonderful to see the sunshine and flower blossoms this time of year, but for many of us the spring blooms are the beginning of a frustrating and itchy allergy season.

flower-3219718_640

Allergies are the result of an over-active immune system. Your body begins to identify things like pollen, dust and pet dander as foreign invaders and histamines are released within your body in attempt to expel the invaders. The release of histamines causes symptoms like itchy, watering eyes, ears, throat and nose, as well as hives and other physical reactions.

The key to managing allergies the natural way is to ensure your immune system is functioning at its best and that your stress levels are not inhibiting your immune system from working properly.

If you are looking for a natural approach to treating allergies consider some of these options:

Essential Oils

  • Add a few drops of lemon, lavender and peppermint essential oils to a diffuser or mix essential oils with a carrier oil (like coconut) and rub it on your chest.
  • Try doTerra’s TriEase® Softgels Seasonal Blend

Tri Ease Soft Gels

TriEase® Softgels were developed to protect against seasonal and environmental elements and to promote a healthy respiratory system when needed most.

To order your supply of doTerra essential oils anytime contact Michele at 250.920.8687 or email info@westcoastreflexology.com.
