Stop and take stock - the Winter Solstice

Stop and take stock - the Winter Solstice

The Winter Solstice is often called 'Shortest Day' but if you want to take the glass-half-full perspective, you could opt for 'Longest Night'.

This is a great opportunity to stop and take stock, of this hour, this day, this year - this life! In fact the term solstice is derived from the Latin term ‘solstitium’ containing the meaning ‘sol’, the sun and ‘sistere’, to stand still. Nature provides this nudge to pause and reflect.


Scheduling a regular cleanse at the solstice will enable you to enjoy the benefits of greater energy, improved digestion, clearer skin, weight loss and improved mood. 


A cleanse can help with the elimination of toxins and tonify the kidneys, liver, lymphatic system and bowel. When these areas of the body are not functioning at their optimum, poor skin, hair, nails, bad breath and lack of energy can result. It is considered in certain spiritual circles that fasting or cleansing during the Equinox and solstice is more effective than at other times in the planetary calendar.

Our body is exposed to a large number of foreign chemicals on a daily basis. The majority are synthetic chemicals that find their way into our food, air and water. Some are consumed through medicinal drugs, or applied in our toiletries, or found in common household items and cleaning products.


Overexposure to toxic substances and an inability to properly metabolise them can negatively impact an individual’s health, producing a wide variety of symptoms such as headaches, muscle and joint pain, fatigue, and allergy or flu-like symptoms.  

Methods of elimination including the use of plants and specific foods, along with techniques such as fasting have been used for centuries to help facilitate better health and encourage greater vitality.
