Detoxing is a great way to get our bodies back on track and is typically used to renew and repair for several days after a period of over-indulgence. But did you know that our bodies release toxins and look to replenish harm with good every hour?
To do this effectively we need to consume optimal levels of nutrients daily, making embarking on a detox programme the first step in ridding your body of accumulated waste and kick-starting weight loss.
Toxins are poison to our body and if left to fester can cause weight gain, disease, ageing, loss of energy and vitality. While our bodies are built to naturally eliminate toxins, they need help. When you consider some of the effects of modern life — pollution, poor dietary choices, contaminants in our food and water, stress or a sedentary lifestyle, that’s a hefty load and one that can compromise the most efficient of detoxification systems.
The must-dos of detoxing
I use and recommend a highly nutritious, 7 Day Detox Programme to reset and retune the body.
This plan guarantees intake and absorption of high quality micro-nutrients (the full spectrum of vitamins, minerals and powerful antioxidants) to get the job done properly and safely. It also uses the right type and balance of macro-nutrients (proteins, carbohydrates, fats and fibre), as well as omega-3 oils to support effective cellular metabolism and the removal of petrochemicals, pesticides and heavy metals. A lack of nutrients can impair our natural ability to detoxify chemicals, which further leads to their build-up in the body.
There is some fruit and vegetable consumption, but this isn’t a juice based cleanse. To ensure detoxing takes place the body must eliminate waste and uptake nutrients. Cleansing alone won’t achieve this.
It also involves a break from alcohol, gluten, sugar and caffeine. Sufficient fibre and water consumption will speed up the removal of unwanted waste and reduce the likelihood of common detox symptoms, such as headaches; bodily aches and pains.
With this complete detox programme you will remove rubbish from your body without feeling deprived, weak or harming your health. Fuel your body correctly and you'll get great results. Denying your body of vital nutrients and food groups will cause hunger and take you off track. Detoxing should be an act of self-care, not one that’s rife with deprivation and struggle.
If you need to lose weight you will shed some pounds in just five days and have the option to continue your transformation.
Exercise is a core part of detoxing, with the length and intensity of your current level of activity, together with listening to your body, dictating the nature and regularity of exercise during a detox. Walking is detoxifying and many yoga poses, like twists and binds can also help with the detoxification process.
Post-detox support to maintain the New Vibrant You
The good news is that you can support and strengthen your body in its pursuit to remain clean, healthy and active by extending optimal nutrition beyond the initial detox.
Imagine looking and feeling your best all the time. I’m talking beautiful skin, sparkling eyes, shiny hair and more energy, sharper concentration, increased self-esteem. It’s incredible the knock-on-effect this can have on your life. And with the ground work behind you, it’s a pity to slip back into old habits that fail to serve you, your health and your lifestyle.
