Spring Cleaning: Body, Home, and Mind


As the trees begin to bloom and the days grow longer, spring beckons us to renew and refresh. Just as we clean out our closets and declutter our living spaces, our bodies and minds also benefit from a seasonal reset. Spring cleaning isn't just about scrubbing floors and dusting shelves; it's about revitalizing our entire being. Here are some ways to spring clean and detoxify, encompassing the whole body, home, and mind.


Body Detoxification: Spring is an excellent time to support your body's natural detoxification processes. Here are some practices to help you feel rejuvenated from the inside out:


  • Hydration: Start your day with a glass of warm water and lemon to kickstart your metabolism and support liver function.

  • Nutrient-Rich Diet: Focus on whole, unprocessed foods rich in antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Incorporate plenty of leafy greens, fruits, colorful vegetables, and lean proteins into your meals. Reduce or limit refined carbs and sugary foods and drinks.

  • Herbal Support: Certain herbs like dandelion root, milk thistle, and cilantro are known for their detoxifying properties. Consider incorporating them into teas or adding them to your meals.

  • Sweat it Out: Regular exercise and sweating help eliminate toxins like mold through the skin. Try incorporating activities like yoga, jogging, or sauna sessions into your routine.

  • Dry Brush: The course bristles on a dry brush stimulate the pores and open them up. This makes it easier for the body to sweat, which in turns reduces the amount of toxins flowing through the lymphatic system. Dry brushing the entire body is typically done before showering.

  • Supplements: Certain supplements can help the body detox properly such as activated charcoal, electrolytes, garlic, glutathione, grape seed extract, chlorella, and fulvic acid. Here are Dr. Felty's detox favorites.

Home Detoxification: Your home should be a sanctuary for health and well-being. Here are some tips for detoxifying your living space:


  • Green Cleaning Products: Swap out chemical-laden cleaning products for natural alternatives. Look for eco-friendly options or make your own using ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils.

  • Air Purification: Invest in a high-quality air purifier to remove pollutants, allergens, and toxins from your indoor air. Opening windows regularly also helps to circulate fresh air throughout your home.

  • Declutter: Clear out clutter and unnecessary items that accumulate dust and contribute to a sense of chaos. A tidy space promotes mental clarity and reduces stress. Let go and give away items that you haven't used within the past year or two.

  • Check For Mold: Mold is a common issue in homes and can cause many health issues. If you suspect mold, consider at-home testing kits with Immunolytics.


Mind Detoxification: Mental well-being is just as important as physical health. Here are strategies to detoxify your mind and promote emotional balance:


  • Mindfulness Meditation: Practicing mindfulness meditation has been shown to reduce stress, anxiety, and depression while promoting overall mental well-being. Set aside time each day to focus on the present moment and on your breathing.

  • Digital Detox: Limit your screen time and take regular breaks from electronic devices. Constant exposure to screens can lead to mental fatigue and disrupt sleep patterns.

  • Gratitude Practice: Cultivate an attitude of gratitude. Consider keeping a daily gratitude journal. Reflect on things you're thankful for so you can shift your perspective and improve your mood and hormones.


In conclusion, spring cleaning isn't just about scrubbing surfaces; it's about rejuvenating your body, home, and mind. By incorporating these practices into your routine, you can support your body's natural detoxification processes, create a healthier living environment, and cultivate a sense of inner peace and balance.
