Why Detox?

The connection between the body and the mind is a very real one, with the way your body feels playing a big part in how your brain functions and whether or not you experience a state of well-being. Keeping it free of toxins, free radicals, and other nasty things that can end up in our insides is essentially to maintaining a healthy life. You’ll notice that with many of these detox foods the road to purification goes through the liver and getting it to full capacity can have several long-lasting benefits throughout the body.

All you need is 10-days to activate your body’s natural ability to heal itself and feel great… The first thought that comes to mind with a detox is deprivation. You think hunger, starvation, strange food and juice cleanses. Trust me Detox can do more than make your eyes sparkle and your skin glow – It’s a reboot for your health and will jump start your metabolism, improve digestion and help shift few unwanted pounds. It’s easy to follow, will leave your feeling fabulous and you may even lose few pounds. ​

The primary source of environmental toxins is found in our food chain. This, combined with the toxins that you breathe in and that touch your skin, make up the toxic load that your liver and other organs try to deal with every second. Add in the other toxins — such as alcohol, medications, excess coffee and smoking — and you can understand why we feel unwell, sleepless, and with low energy, and are overweight and sluggish.

For the next 10 days

  •  Morning Salt and lime water: This is an oldie but a goodie to kick start the digestion and cleanse the system.  Salt has many vital functions, one of them is that it nourishes the adrenals. The adrenals are 2 walnut-shaped glands that sit on top of the kidneys. They are responsible for the majority of hormones involved in energy level and stress management, such as adrenaline, noradrenaline and cortisol.
  • Exercise: During detox aim to exercise for one hour daily. And not just any exercise – something that leaves you drenched in sweat like a spin class, jog along the beach, walking uphill, hot yoga or boxing. Vigorous exercise increases lymph flow and circulation to help sweat out toxins
  • Raw foods: Aim to cut out the cooking process and eat mainly raw foods. Raw foods contain more nutrients and enzymes. Most of what you eat is plant based foods that are high in vitamins, minerals, fiber, and phytochemicals. And it’s true that cooking can zap some water soluble vitamins like vitamins B and C.

Take care of your body. It’s the only place you have to live.
