Spring Cleaning - Inside and Out

Spring Cleaning - Inside and Out

Spring is a season of awakening and of renewal. Making healthy choices that will carry you through the seasons is important this time of year. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

1. Embrace yourself honestly.
Assess the various aspects of your life and try to assess where the stressors and weaknesses exist. Are they in your diet, exercise program, work or relationships? Focus on the ones that need improvement, and begin moving away from the ones that detract from your life.

2. Examine personal relationships.
Include your significant other, friends, and relatives. Think about how you affect each other and what you can do to make each relationship more meaningful and loving.

3. Choose to change habits.
Perhaps you want to be more positive, exercise more, or give up junk food. Do you need help or can you do this on your own? It may be easier to make changes with support from others. Call us, we love supporting positive changes.

4. Clean and organize.
Clear out the old and bring in the new. Take a look at your possessions and give away or recycle anything that doesn’t serve a good purpose. You may be surprised at how much lighter and happier you feel when you’ve cleaned and freshened up each area of your home. Cara loves the blog unfilth your habitat.

5. Get active.
Schedule more exercise into your day to improve your health and reduce stress. Walk around your neighborhood, try a yoga class, go dancing, or ride your bike someplace new. Even 15 minutes makes a difference.

6. Make positive choices.
Think about what you take in every day with your eyes, ears, and heart. Consider the things that make you feel your best such as beautiful music, spring flowers, good friends, and inspirational art. Consider fasting from TV, news, violent movies, and stressful people.

7. Feel your best.

Assess your emotional well-being. Take an honest look at your moods and emotions. Know that every day we have a choice about our reactions. Find the cause of the disharmony, and make a conscious choice to change. Many factors, from diet and digestive health to learned behavior, can have an influence on mood and energy level.

8. Try a Detox Program.

You may want to try a 1-3 week detox program during the spring. Choose a program that works for you whether it’s a juice cleansing, fasting, cutting out dairy or refined sugars, or a more in-depth detox diet. Talk to us, We can give you helpful information about how to approach the detoxification process.

9. Commit to a plan.

Consider what you want out of life, from your health, habits and relationships to your career and work. Create a plan to achieve these goals. Most importantly, remember to be nurturing and kind to yourself as you commit to making positive changes in your life.

Cara Frank is an outstanding practitioner. She treated me for fertility issues and there is absolutely no doubt in my mind that I would not have my child were it not for her expertise and dedication.

She arranged for a practitioner from another group to meet me in the suburbs, so that I could get acupuncture immediately before and after my embryo transfer, since it was scheduled when she was seeing patients in the city. When our embryo wasn’t growing well, my fertility doc said the pregnancy was “unlikely to be successful”, and there was nothing else that Western Medicine had to offer, Cara’s acupuncture and herbs literally saved his life. I know it sounds crazy but, as a physician and fertility patient, I was far too familiar with how these situations usually end up.

Along the way, she has also treated my migraines, diagnosed my hypothyroidism, and kept my blood pressure in a safe range. Her emphasis on the important connection of diet and healthy, as well as her knowledge of food, are exceptional and significantly contribute to the unique and unparalleled experience of being in her care.
