The Benefits of Doing a Detox

For the longest time I avoided doing a detox. Being a health coach and food and lifestyle educator I thought that my diet was so good that I didn’t need it. This past October I spent a month pouring through research to come up with what I believed to be the perfect detox. I set my goal for three days.

What I discovered shocked me. My diet may have been good but my body was not clean. I released toxins and felt uncomfortable in the process. On the fourth day it was a revelation to feel my body lighter, and more vibrant.

I began my career in nutrition in 2007 and at that point I was able to heal myself of hypoglycemia and asthma, but still suffered for years with chronic migraines. This was frustrating to me, as I thought I was doing everything right. I am happy to say that after the detox the migraines are gone.

Detox is usually done with the change of seasons. Now is the ideal time to do a spring detox. I personally repeated the detox this past week. The great news is, it was so much easier this time and I feel great.

Since October I have had almost a hundred people complete my detox program and virtually all of them have said they felt better afterwards.

Some of the benefits I see are:
Eliminated stored wastes and weight loss.
Improved vitality, energy levels and mental clarity.
Improved circulation through purifying the liver, kidney and blood.
You may stop bad eating habits, allowing your stomach to reduce to a normal size for weight control.
People with heart problems may notice a more regular heartbeat
Blood sugar and cholesterol lowered.
Reduced Fatigue
Reduced Bloating
Eliminates Headaches and brain fog
Reduces belly fat
Reduced Joint Pain
Eliminates Itchy Skin
Eliminates Sleeplessness
Safely rids your body of toxins
Boosts your immune system & increases energy

Detoxification is a normal process, your body is constantly trying to neutralize and eliminate toxins through the major organs such as your colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymphs and skin. But, what if your self-cleaning system is overloaded and blocked up?

Research shows that detoxing may be the missing link to disease prevention, especially for immune-deficiency diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and candida.

Even if you have a great diet, cleansing is the perfect way to boost your immune system and protect yourself from toxins with a good internal cleanse.

I guarantee you that you will feel so much better when you are finished. The best part is that you will be more mindful moving forward. You will definitely think twice before putting garbage into your body after a detox.

This detox is three days long, in most cases three days is just long enough to get rid of sugar cravings and break caffeine addiction.

There is so much conflicting information out there. Everyday our emails are flooded with a new theory, (at least mine is) and the internet bombards us with information and offers. I believe you have to be wise these days and discern for yourselves what works. This is hard for people to do. That is where I come in, I teach people how to listen, really listen to their bodies, and mind. Together we create a healthy relationship with food, your thoughts and your core spiritual beliefs. Each and every person is a unique individual and has to be treated as such. There is no one right way to eat.
 
I have a huge passion for healthy eating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I teach my clients that it is not only the food we eat, which is super important, but how we eat and our feelings about food that matters. We are striving for homeostasis which can only be achieved when our body, mind and spirit are all being fed.

One of the main things on a detox, other than food is mindfulness. We will pay attention to our thoughts, triggers, and faith.

Think positive thoughts. Take some time to journal. Do you notice that most of your thoughts during the day are positive or are they filled with worry? If you find them filled with worry, make a pledge to let it go for three days. If you decide you want to worry after the three days are up, you can do it then. The problem may still be there and maybe not. Think of all the wasted energy you just saved.

One of the main reasons to detox is to reset the body.

Many of the foods that we eat and everyday stress cause the blood to become acidic. This is a breading ground for disease. A detox helps to turn the blood to alkaline, increasing your immunity and making you more disease resistant.

 Many of us suffer from sugar cravings and caffeine addiction, In most cases three days is just long enough to break the addiction.
