As the season is changing, many health and wellness experts urge patients to take the proper steps to create a healthy transition for the mind, body, and spirit into the next season. This transition can start with a detox for the entire body.

Detoxing can alleviate a stubborn sluggish feeling, or help solve skin, digestion, or general aches and pains issues. It can be a great way to start off a weight loss effort as well.

Here are four tips to help anyone learn how to detox properly and get their mind, body, and soul back in sync:

1. Cleanse

Detoxing usually starts with a simple diet cleanse which lasts three to five days, where caffeine, alcohol, cigarettes, saturated fat and refined sugars are eliminated. During those days one should focus on consuming vegetable and fruit juices, whole grains, nuts and legumes, vegetable broth, fresh fruits and vegetables.

This cleanse will purge out harmful bodily toxins and send a message to the brain that it's time to clean out and start fresh. The first day or two may be difficult, but this is just a sign that all the junk is being released from the body.

2. Pamper

As simple as it sounds, taking care of oneself just feels good. It can be as easy as spending time in a steam room, relaxing in a hot whirlpool, or maybe just sitting quietly in meditation. Many day spas and hotels offer opportunities for these experiences, and some even take it a step further.

The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess Resort and Spa in Scottsdale, Arizona, has a department called Well & Being which is entirely focused on giving guests a medically guided, personalized and fully integrated wellness program. Guests get to be pampered and stimulated mentally and physically ... the best of all worlds.

3. De-stress

Schedule a visit to an acupuncturist or another naturopathic expert to help relieve stagnation and reduce stress, which is something that can slow a detox down.
