Spring, as you know, is a time of new growth in the plant world, and with all of this growth comes many spring herbs, such as alterative herbs, that benefit our body after the long, dark days of winter. These herbs are particularly helpful when it comes to supporting the body in its efforts to cleanse itself from the heavy burdens of the previous season.

In the past, I’ve talked about the difference between cleansing and detoxing as well as how I go about each one, but today I’d like to hone in on the topic of cleansing a bit more and share a category of cleansing herbs that are commonly available during the spring.

These cleansing herbs are often grouped together into one category called alteratives, but this large category can be further divided into smaller categories based around herbs with common actions or herbs that act on specific body systems.

Let me start by explaining what alteratives are, and then we’ll take a closer look at some of the smaller, more specific categories of alterative herbs.
