When the word ‘detox’ is mentioned, many ideas may come to mind. No wine? Are you kidding! How will I survive if I have to give up coffee? Deprivation. Starvation. Suffering. BUT many of us are changing the way we look at detoxing. Words like glowing and vitality are used. Getting better sleep is achieved. Some of us even lose a few pounds.
A detox is a way to cleanse our body from the inside-out. A good detox is usually 10 days, but there are some that can last 30 days. Usually a 10 day detox does the trick.
A good detox will:
- eliminate stored toxins such as free radicals
- cleanse your liver, kidneys, intestines, skin, lymphatic system, and lungs
- allow one’s body return to balance; the state of homestasis
- jump start a healthy lifestyle
My clients are in the process of starting their 10 day detoxes soon. They are busy shopping for the daily menu of quinoa, fruit for smoothies, special detox juice, and ingredients for celery soup. And I can’t forget to mention the herbal detox tincture.
Stay tuned for Kathie’s Detox Project and the first day reports .
PS. Doesn’t this detox smoothie look delicious? One good reason to do a detox! Yum!
