    Opening windows, seeding your lawn, and putting away winter coats are some of the things most of us do in our homes when the first signs of spring start popping up. But our homes aren’t the only things we should be looking at when it comes to spring cleaning.

    A seasonal body cleanse can do wonders for our health. Cleansing or detoxifying can help the body rid itself of toxins that have built up in our systems over the months (or years).

It is a combination of organic herbs that supports normal cleansing and organ detoxification functions and is designed for people who have never taken a total body cleansing supplement. It lasts 2 weeks and is simple and effective.

    Pathway Ultra Cleansing System AM/PM offers a little more digestive cleansing action and is a 30-day cleanse. This is the one that I do twice a year. Read more
