It is time to switch gears. The first day of spring is less than a month away. While most parts of the country are looking forward to thawing out after a winter season of cold, snow and ice, here in the Arizona desert, we are looking forward to longer days and warmer temperatures.

These aren’t the only things that come along with the change in seasons. Allergies can sneak up on us in the desert in the spring and so can a build-up of toxins that our bodies may have been accumulating throughout the winter.

It is time to spring clean your health, and we have five tips for staying healthy this spring for you.

5 Tips For Staying Healthy This Spring

Eliminate Toxins
Taking inventory of the toxins that may have built up in your body over the winter can give you an idea of what type of spring cleaning your diet and body might need. Was your diet overly saturated with sugar, caffeine, alcohol or any other toxin that it’s time to clean out? Detoxes might be a good way to go, but of course check with your doctor before making any changes to your diet or starting a detox.

Re-evaluate Your Diet
Our dietary needs change with the seasons, so it might be time to take a look at what’s fresh and in season as far as produce goes. A visit to your local farmer’s market is a great place to select fresh, seasonal produce. This spring, look for asparagus, beets, peas, rhubarb, parsnips or visit this Fresh Spring Fruits and Vegetables list for a guide.

Stay One Step Ahead of Allergens
Are you experiencing a little cough here or a little sniffle there? Even in the desert we aren’t immune to seasonal allergies. With an abundance of golf courses here in the valley, come grasses that are producing seasonal allergies for many of us.

Of course they are not the only allergen — other plants are in bloom in the desert in the spring and year-round that might be causing your problems. A healthcare expert can help you determine the cause of your allergies and avoid allergens that might be triggers for you.

Get A Grip On Stress
You can avoid it, run from it or deny it, but stress is a fact of life so learning to deal with it in a healthy way this spring will keep it from taking a toll on you. Make the changes you need to make and then also find healthy ways to deal with the remaining stress. Exercise, yoga and meditation are all healthy ways to combat stress.

Experience The Benefits of An Adjustment
One of the main beliefs behind chiropractic care is that the body has an innate ability to heal itself when the environment is right. Your chiropractor helps to facilitate this healing environment in your body through adjustments. If it is time for a “tune-up”, an adjustment might be a good place to start.

Chiropractic care is one way to keep your body maintained and healthy this spring. Paired with physical therapy, it can be a powerful combination to help you recover from auto accidents, sports injury, joint, neck or back pain and more.
