Why You Need to Detox!

 

 

We all know that we live in a very toxic world and even if you are mindful of what you eat and how you live you may need a period of helping your liver and body “detox”.

Are you ready to give your body a spring cleaning?

Does your liver need a lift?

Your liver is your body’s largest internal organ and a proper functioning liver is responsible for so many of the life-promoting and life-sustaining functions. The liver supports the digestive system, regulates blood sugar and fat storage and a clogged liver can dramatically affect your ability to be healthy and achieve and maintain a healthy weight.

Let’s face it, winter is a time when we let our diets slip a little, so maybe it’s time to give your systems a break and get yourself back on track.

Signs it’s time to spring clean your body:

  • Fatigue and lethargy; unstable energy level
  • Bloating, constipation or diarrhea
  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Headaches
  • Skin eruptions
  • Allergies and sensitivities
  • Hormonal imbalance
  • Feeling “depressed” and experiencing anxiety and mood swings

How can a period of detoxification help?

Reduce toxins: Change your diet and you change your health! When you have a purposeful clean-eating plan you naturally avoid the foods and substances that add to your toxic load and you incorporate the nutrients that support a healthy detoxification.

Your natural detoxing capacity is improved: Supporting and stimulating the elimination organs…liver, kidney, and gut…and increasing water and fiber, you ease the process that your body does naturally. Targeted nutrients and key supplements are needed to reinforce your natural detoxing ability.

Neutralize free radicals: Goal is to increase anti-oxidants like fruits and vegetables and decrease harmful sugars in the diet. This will make all the difference in decreasing your free radical load that can damage your body, negatively affect the healthy functioning of your body’s cells, tissues and systems and dramatically impact your overall health and wellness.

Eliminate waste products: You need to clear your system of the waste otherwise you are retaining and recirculating it! Regular bowel movements, sweating with even moderate exercise and movement, increasing circulation of the blood and lymph and hydrating for health!
