Your Body’s Healing is On a Clock
I knew the body regenerates itself, and each organ has a particular timetable for full regeneration. But when I read this article on what time of day each organ cleanses or regenerates.
I was blown away.
A lightbulb also went off in my mind.
In my Intro to Herbalism Course Facebook Group, every other Wednesday I do a Herbal Healing Hour chat with the members.
On our first one, I discussed the "secret" powers of the spleen.
The spleen is important for recycling red blood cells and housing white blood cells and platelets.
It has 2 parts, the red pulp, and the white pulp. T
The white pulp is the lymphatic system nodules and is responsible for the production of lymphocytes.
The red pulp is the area where there are many capillaries that act as filters to removed damaged red blood cells.
The lymphocytes then engulf them to get rid of them.
So this red and white tissue work together.
Balance - once again! (If you have been reading any of my blogs or follow me on social media, you'll know that I promote balance and homeostasis for emotional health. That is the key.)
So, I wasn't surprised to hear that the spleen cleanses during the hours of 9am-11am.
Think about it, isn't this usually the time that if we are going to feel sick, we usually do right when we wake up or when we finally get to work?
In addition, the liver, kidneys, and spleen work together to provide energy to your bodies especially after fasting over night. If we break our fast in the morning with highly stimulating coffee, we disrupt the natural process of cleansing and regeneration because our cells think we should be working harder since we have all this energy.
So do yourself a favor, get plenty of rest, have a hearty (sugar-free) breakfast, and use spleen-balancing herbs to help you protect your immune system, especially this fall and winter.
