Do you have low energy, feel sluggish, have difficulty losing weight, have skin problems, feel bloated, have digestive problems or allergies, experience mental confusion or aches and pains? It may be time for a detox!
As we head into the spring and the weather gets warmer (and hopefully stays warm), it’s the perfect time of year to do a detox. For the next week or so, I will be blogging about what you need to know in order to prepare, start and complete a detoxification.
What is detoxification?
Detoxification has been practiced around the world for thousands of years. It is about resting, cleaning and nourishing the body from the inside out. When you remove and eliminate toxins, and feed your body with healthy foods and nutrients, detoxification helps protect one from disease and restores health by correcting imbalances in the body such as hormonal, digestive and inflammatory imbalances.
A detox program supports the body’s detoxification process by:
- Resting the organs by removing foods and toxins that are difficult to digest and clear
- Stimulating the liver to drive toxins from the body
- Promoting elimination through the kidneys, intestines and skin
- Improving blood circulation
- Refueling the body with healthy foods and nutrients
Detoxification benefits include:
- Weight loss
- Reduce bloating and belly fat
- Boost metabolism
- Increase energy levels
- Improve hair and skin glow
- Enhance mental clarity
- Eliminate cravings
- Improve digestion
- Clear allergies
- Boost immunity
- Improve sleep
- Regulate bowel movement
