1. Eat Wild Greens
that are edible. Nettles, sorrel, miner's lettuce, dandelion greens, oxalis, chickweed, and the list goes on. Make sure you pick in a clean place far from the roadside.
Wild greens help shift your metabolism over from the slow winter storage unit to the fresh spring burning machine. They feed your friendly bacteria and help cleanse the liver. Plus, they make you go wild! By feeding you trace minerals and vitamins from the soil and climate in your area, they help you naturally and easily adapt with the seasons.
2. Do a Detox
and go on a supplement fast. Spring is the ultimate time for you to cleanse the heavy winter foods from your body and Summer is approaching fast. Don't let the heat of the summer bake the mucoid plaque onto your intestines.
3. Take a Hike
somewhere beautiful. See what is growing. Harvest wild greens while you're at it. Breathe in the fresh air to restore your vitality. Connect with the earth by stomping around in it for half a day or more.
4. Drink Dandelion Root Tea
daily to flush the liver and get things moving. Traditional Medicinals makes my favorite roasted dandelion in a tea bag. You can also make your own by harvesting it out of a clean area, such as your garden. Use the leaves in a fresh salad, rinse the root and let it dry. Grind it up and either toast it or keep it raw.
5. Refresh Your Gut Bacteria
by eating a whole-food form of Lactobacilli, like fermented veggies or kefir. By consciously restoring your gut bacteria, you can reverse the negative effects of antibiotic use. Additionally, you will increase your nutrient absorption and assimilation in ALL the food you eat when your gut is a thriving ecosystem.
