The Season of Harvest


ReavesChiroMasonjarThe Season of the Harvest, known in Egyptian as Shemu, was the third and final season of the Egyptian Calendar. The word Shemu literally translates as “low-water”, during this season, the crops of the grain harvest were collected.

For us too, it is a time to organize and prepare for the winter months ahead. Cleansing gives us a clean slate on where to begin it is also is a great time to harvest one’s spirit and energy, and to be more focused.
Take sometime to transition your body and mind into the change of season. Doing a proper cleanse starts with small steps…
  • Choosing a cleanse that is right for you to get a jump start.
  • Organizing your meals on Sundays for the week.
  • Tying in other physical cleansing techniques such as chiropractic adjustments, massage, epsom salt baths, and yoga.
The most important part of a cleanse is what happens after. Taking some of these small changes and adapting them into a lifestyle are key. With time and persistence, there will be noticeable changes in your appearance, diet and activity level which will lead to overall feeling physically and mentally energetic and happy throughout the coming winter season.

Be sure to schedule your wellness appointments TODAY and find the best cleanse for you.
