Why Detox?

There are many reasons why people choose to Detox:

  • For a spring clean of your body
  • To lose weight
  • To gain back energy, enthusiasm and vitality

Energy should be achieved through what you consume, not through energy drinks, sugars, caffeine, salts and fats.  Quick fixes do not work, you may lose some weight in the short term, but you need to be focused on taking responsibility for your health, ensuring you eat a well-balanced plant-based diet that will provide you with all the nutrients, vitamins and minerals you will need.

If you are not getting all the nutrients you need from your diet, you may suffer from many health complaints including:

  • Attention problems
  • Bad breath/Body odour
  • Constipation or Diarrhoea
  • Diabetes
  • Digestive problems
  • Fatigue
  • Food allergies & cravings
  • Headaches/Migraines
  • High cholesterol
  • Lower back pain
  • Menstrual problems
  • Skin/Acne problems
  • Sleep problems
  • Wind/Excessive Gas

Toxins are eliminated via efficient waste removal processes in the body.  If your organs are not functioning as they should, then these fat soluble toxins will be stored in your fatty tissues.  By getting rid of toxins in the body, you will most likely have symptoms of withdrawal.  These symptoms indicate that the detoxification process is working and your body is releasing the artificial way it previously functioned so it can readjust to an organic state of balance.  Side effects such as headaches, cramps, mood swings, and chills occur due to ridding of the toxins from the body, indicating just how toxic our system is.  Keep in mind that these side effects and withdrawal symptoms can last up to a week before you start to feel better.  Water and herbal teas will help with the flushing out of the toxins, as will adequate fibre.

Positive Aspects of Detoxing:

  • Lose Weight
  • Regain Energy
  • Regain Enthusiasm
  • Fit into your favourite jeans/swimmers/dress
  • Look great at your school reunion
  • Be able to live longer to see your grandchildren
  • Eliminating toxic substances from your body
  • Detoxifying your organs and blood
