Detox Benefits by Naturopath Magda Nowakowski in Oakleigh South


Spring time is finally here and you may been seeing the words, “detox” or “cleanse” popping up.

Traditionally, cleanses and detoxes have been undertaken in Spring. Why Spring? This is the ideal time to give your body a break from all the heavier warming and comforting winter foods.

If we look at the vegetables that are in season, in winter we have our starchy, heavier root vegetables. In spring, we find more leafy greens and lighter vegetables. So makes sense that we naturally cleanse at this time.

What other reasons are there for a cleanse?

  • To give our digestive system some respite. We eat lighter, more easily digested foods to give our digestive system a rest after a winter of eating more starchy and fatty foods;
  • To remove stored toxins from the body. Toxins can come from many places and the usual area our body stores toxins is in our adipose tissue (i.e., fat cells). Detoxification can gently release these toxins via the digestive system, kidneys and skin. Toxins can come from places such as our environment (e.g., car fumes, smog), foods (e.g., pesticides, herbicides, additives, preservatives, colourings, heavy metals) or our home (e.g., cleaning products, plastics, cosmetics)
  • To nourish ourselves. You may have gone through a period of not eating well. Not eating enough fruit or fresh vegetables. Perhaps there has been some dabbling in some extra coffee, sugary foods and/or alcohol. Moving away from these to nutrient rich foods will help your body feel great again

What benefits will I see from a cleanse?

  • Brighter eyes
  • Clearer skin
  • More energy
  • Clearer thinking and no more foggy brain
  • More motivation
  • Less sluggishiness and more vibrancy
  • A few less of those extra winter kilos


Spring is a time of renewal, why not renew yourself?
