Spring is in the air – time to wear brighter colours, revamp your closet, and flush harmful toxins from your system. Toxins naturally accumulate over time and can make you feel sluggish, heavy, and run-down. No matter how hard you try to avoid them, you are exposed to toxins every day. It is inevitable in today’s world – detergents, chemicals, preservatives, and processed foods are just some examples. Although your body is designed by nature to cleanse itself, its ability to do so has likely slowed down. This is because of stress, an unhealthy lifestyle and overexposure to toxins. The good news is, spring is here and it is the best time of year to detox. You can kick-start your metabolism, give your liver some love and feel refreshed, rejuvenated and sexy in as little as two weeks!
Even with healthy organic eating, toxins from the environment (pollution) and ingredients found in many cleaning and body care products can still enter your system through inhalation or absorption through your skin. If you don’t do anything to get rid of these harmful bad guys, they will build up in your system. Do you really want toxins hanging out in your intestines, your lymphatic system and the most important detoxification organ in your body – your liver? I didn’t think so.
Allergies, skin problems, a weak immune system, headaches, weight gain, digestive disorders, fatigue, and poor concentration can all be treated with a good detox program. The detox program that I have created is not about making sacrifices or giving up your favourite foods. It is not about skipping out on social dinners or feeling unsatisfied at meals. Rather it is three weeks of your life that you choose to dedicate to yourself – to improve the health of your organs (especially your liver), to rid your body of harmful toxins, and to feel your very best.
Okay, you are convinced. You’ve never done a detox and now you understand that you need one. What a great time of year to invest in your health and make every effort to ensure that each and every cell in your body is vibrantly clean and well nourished. You might not be sure how you are going to manage with your tight schedule, social gatherings and work. So, let me help you.
First off, write down the reasons why you are committed to the program and post it some place where you can see it or carry it in your wallet. This will help you stay on track when you are craving a latte, wine or your favourite dessert. Next, make a trip to your local grocery store and stock up on foods from your detox grocery list. Remember, real health starts with real food. Nature never intended for you to consume chemicals – prior to World War II, food was free of chemicals and was far better quality than the processed foods commonly consumed these days. Your detox will include alkaline, low-allergenic, nutrient-rich foods that are easy to digest. Anything that slows the functioning of your liver will need to be eliminated. In addition to your detox food list, you are provided with plenty of easy-to-follow recipes. Trust me, they are delicious!
I recommend you start your detox with a positive attitude and focus on how you expect to feel at the end of the program. You will need support during this time, so find a friend or a co-worker who is excited to do the program with you. The two of you will become an inspiration to others and it is a matter of time before people comment on your glowing skin, your leaner body and your sparkling energy.
