Did you know? Regular detoxifying keeps our bodies healthy. In fact, Spring time is the perfect time for a detox!
Detoxing can be very simple, effective and is easily incorporated into your health care regime. Think of “nourishing” your cells instead of starving them.
How it works: by eating very clean, whole foods you are reducing the toxic input allowing your organs to “clean house” and function efficiently.
Detoxing also supports your digestive tract allowing a “resting” period. Your nutritionist can support you in doing a detox program with meal planning, recipes and tips. Whether you choose a 3 day or 14 day regime, the principles are the same:
1. Eat Clean, whole foods
2. Maximize digestion by incorporating smoothies, lemon, apple cider vinegar, greens and herbal teas.
3. Use other methods of detoxification; such as saunas, steam rooms, dry skin brushing and juicing, to give your body a boost.
4. Eat small and frequent portions, drink clean water and choose organic produce for salads, soups and casseroles
