Do I need to detox?

If you look at the internet you’ll typically find two schools of thought – there’s one group hell bent on green juices and colonics, and another that cite the science and assure you that “detoxing” is not something you have to put effort into doing, that it is simply something that the body does on a daily basis – if you weren’t detoxing, quite simply put, you’d be dead.

And this second school of thought is absolutely right – our bodies really are detoxing every second, every minute of the day, but is that to say that there’s no reason to give them a little extra help?

The fact of the matter is this – we live in a far more toxic world than we’ve evolved to live in. Air pollution, agricultural chemicals, smoking, cosmetics and cleaning detergents all combine with toxins produced by the breakdown of hormones in our bodies to increase the workload for our liver and other organs. Whilst some thrive, others do not, and an individual’s ability, or rather inability, to efficiently break down toxins, detoxify and then eliminate them, means that they can build up in the body.

If we’re suffering from constipation or poor concentration, if we seem to pick up every bug going around, if we can’t shift stubborn weight around the middle or are feeling constantly tired, the chances are we might be struggling to detoxify well and could use a little bit of help to cleanse and reset our bodies; a little TLC for our liver and other detoxification organs.

If you’d like to know more, and join a supportive and motivated group of individuals on a two-week programme combining diet, exercise and lifestyle support designed to do exactly this, please get in touch to learn more about the upcoming Cleanse and Reset programme starting 6th November.

    1. Hi Paula! Absolutely! You can start with cruciferous vegetables: broccoli, cauliflower, kale, and other vegetables and fruits that are packed with vitamin C like peppers, kiwi fruits and oranges. Then we need a multitude of other vitamins and minerals, so I like to say get as much variety in as possible. And don’t forget to keep hydrated with 8 glasses of water a day! Hope that helps – do let me know if you’ve any more questions, Catherine
