Cleanse in the fall and spring
During the seasonal changes of fall and spring, it’s the best time to do a cleanse, because your body is more vulnerable to stress and needs to be strengthened.
When you improve your cleansing abilities at the start of those seasonal changes, you’ll notice how many of your health problems are diminished or even disappear altogether.
You’ll also feel an improvement in your energy levels, vitality, and mood.

Cleanse with the right foods
There are a variety of options you can choose from to cleanse your body naturally:
- Foods that have properties to improve the function of your liver, kidneys, and intestines
- Medicinal supplements to promote cleansing
- Drinking plenty of water, natural juices, and healthy smoothies
- Natural therapies that help you eliminate toxins
- Intense physical exercise that makes you sweat
You can easily cleanse your body using the three medicinal foods that we will highlight below.
Lemons are a citrus fruit that help eliminate fluids and toxins from the body in addition to helping regulate your pH and digestive system.
They improve the function of your liver and gallbladder while also helping your kidneys work at their optimal levels.
It’s a good idea to always buy organic lemons so you can use and even consume the peel, which is much higher in nutrients than the pulp alone.
Although lemon peel has a slightly bitter flavor, you can grate small amounts and add it to juices, smoothies, dressings, desserts, and more.
Celery is an excellent option for improving your kidney function and the removal of fluids, thanks to its diuretic properties.
It also improves the movement of your bowels, making it a good regulator of the digestive system.
Just remember that celery is also rich in oxalates, so people who tend to suffer from kidney stones should moderate their consumption of this vegetable.
Green applesApples are the third ingredient that we’ve chosen for your full body detox, specifically the green variety.
This fruit is very good for your digestive system for the following reasons. It:
- Helps reduce inflammation
- Promotes good digestion
- Improves liver function
- Fights fluid retention
Try to buy organic apples as much as possible because this fruit is frequently contaminated with pesticides. This allows you to also consume it with the peel, which is very rich in nutrients.

- Serve with ice, if desired.
How should you consume it?
Drink this smoothie for one month and you’ll get an extra dose of energy and vitality.
