Seasonal Cleansing and Rejuvenation Program

In Traditional Chinese Medicine, there is an understanding of the relationship between the organs and the seasons. This program draws upon this ancient wisdom to facilitate seasonal assessment, detoxification and rejuvenation. After a year, a full cleansing and assessment of your body's systems will have occurred. Working together with your naturopathic doctor and medical doctor, you can use this as a guide to optimize your health year after year. Consult your naturopathic doctor at least every three months to diagnose any imbalance at its beginning stage, and to improve the associated organs and tissues, so that your whole body is kept finely tuned.
This Seasonal Cleansing and Rejuvenation Program was developed by Sat Dharam Kaur, ND.
