Why do a detox

Living stressful and busy lives can lead to good nutrition becoming a low priority and overtime this will take its toll on your health and wellbeing. Working long hours both in the office and at home can mean that taking time to choose and cook good food is a rarity. Stress causes our body to use up certain nutrients at a greater rate and if they are not replaced overtime you will start to see the effects on your body and mind. In order for our body to remove toxins and waste efficiently it requires many essential nutrients such as antioxidants, protein, B vitamins and essential fats. If your digestive system has become sluggish and inefficient then you will be holding on to toxins for longer than you should. Ideally everyone should have a daily bowel movement that is formed and solid, urine should be clear and frequent and you should sweat during exercise at least 3 times per week; this is how your body removes the toxins that it has broken down in the Liver.

What should I look for in a detox programme

There are so many different options available on the market from at home cleanses to residential stays all lasting from 1 day to 2 weeks or more. Some detox programmes can be very depleting because they restrict the diet so much that the body is unable to actually perform detox processes efficiently so the results might not be as good as you hoped for. Whilst some extreme detox plans might induce fast weight loss it is unlikely to be permanent. If you want to do an unsupervised detox at home make sure that you purchase a programme that has been professionally designed by a Nutritionist or Nutritional Therapist. Food can be a powerful medicine for the body and used in the right combination it can give you optimal health. Supplements can be a very useful additional to a food based detox plan because they can support the body by boosting essential nutrients involved in the detox process whilst also improving digestion and absorption of nutrients from the diet. Look for programmes that have the potential to deliver long term and lasting changes to your health. If something looks too good to be true then it probably is. Detox programmes are generally unsuitable for anyone who is ill, pregnant or under 18. If you are on any medication you should always check with your GP before embarking on any detox programme.

    It has been a revelation to find a programme that has had such a profound effect – not only in the short term but in the way I that have approached food and nutrition going forward. Not only is it easy to follow (thanks to the very clear booklet), but it is a surprisingly inspiring experience thanks to the variety of foods allowed and the meal suggestions and recipes which are delicious (many of which I have now incorporated into my normal daily diet). I was particularly impressed that, unlike other systems that I have tried, the focus was not about restricting how much food you eat and as a result it was very rewarding to follow it without feeling the need to cheat. But with all these things, the ‘proof is in the pudding’ – and this pudding had the flattest stomach of my adult life, such clear skin that I genuinely received lots of comments about how well I was looking and most importantly my digestive system was working better than it had for years. BRAVO!
