How to detox

So, How Do I Detox?

There are two aspects to detoxification; removal and replacement. Or, as we like to call it, weed, seed and feed, same as preparing a garden to grow and bear fruit, flowers or crops. There are a variety of ways to remove toxins from the body, including:

  • Eating organic natural fruits and vegetables
  • Lean protein
  • Drinking plenty of clean, filtered water
  • Some teas and green smoothies are fantastic!
  • Correct posture, breathing and meditation exercises
  • Stress elimination
  • Sweat – happy sweat of course = Exercise! Not just standing out in the sun

Why Should I Detox?

Simple: because it can greatly improve the quality of your life. You can start today with the first steps… eliminating junk foods from your diet and exercising more. Pick one thing that you think is the worst habit or need for you and reduce it by 25%. It may be only drinking one coffee a day, or carbs once a day, or cut out pasta and bread.

Remove the not so good including food, chemicals and environmental toxins, bacteria in your gut and replace with clean, fresh healthy food, air and exercise. This will replace the good bacteria in your gut. Another way to look at it is cleaning out your fish tank ????

The first of these, eating whole, natural foods is also the best way to replace toxins with nutrients and toxin fighting antioxidants and vitamins. Replacing unhealthy fats with healthy fats such as those found in olive oil, too, helps remove toxins from the body.

Regular practice of yoga or pilates is an ideal way to detox. Another way to “jump start” your detox program is to consult one of our Naturopaths or Nutritionists who can help you learn about herbal and dietary detox remedies and make you a specific plan for your desired outcomes and current symptoms and concerns. They can help you overcome general and very specific toxin-related disorders.
