Detoxing Without Crazy Juice Diets
Many people do not realize how many additives or “unhealthy” sweets we consume. From simple things like breakfast cereal to hearty whoppers, our bodies are on overload. We need to clean out our systems in order for our bodies to be functioning and digesting properly. Then, we need to maintain a more wholesome, healthy diet in the long run to best maintain optimal body and organ function.
To help you, here’s a guide — and explanation — to an effective detox from harmful agents your body does not need. And remember, detox does not mean fasting or starving — it means purifying your body systems.
Spring and summer are ideal times to let in light and let go of our old diet and self-defeating habits.
Why not try detoxifying with real, living, nutrient dense foods? A real food cleanse can last anywhere from three to 21 days and uses juices, smoothies and pureed vegetable soups. All of these foods are easy on the digestive system and nourish the body with antioxidants and phytonutrients (nutrients from colourful plant-based sources). Even if you do not wish to puree your food, going on a clean diet has many benefits. Fresh plants are rooted in nature, literally, and they have natural energy, which is passed on to you.
