Let’s take a moment to celebrate the phenomenal function of the liver, a vital organ, that without, our body wouldn’t function, let alone be able to do all those wonderful social things like endulge in rich foods, sip wine with friends, even stroll through our mildly polluted streets in busy cities, process the chemicals from our morning beauty routine, or allow us to take our anti-depressant, anti-inflammatory and heart medications which a large percentage of our population currently rely on just so we can breathe, move without pain or face our stressful daily lives.
You see the main role of our liver, is to metabolise and break down everything of chemical or ‘unnatural’ origin which enters our bodies; alcohol, food chemicals & additives, environmental pollutants, cosmetics, medications, supplements etc It’s a pretty big job, as you can imagine, which is why by giving ourselves the gift of detoxification we are allowing our liver a rest, a period to regenerate and revive, cleanse out the body and create a renewed lease of energy, vitality and wellbeing, a feeling so foreign to many people, yet so simple to achieve with just a little bit of TLC and self-love.
Are you familiar with any of the following? Nausea, headaches, broken sleep, poor concentration and memory, digestive disturbances, irregular bowel motions or constipation, low energy, high blood pressure, allergies.
Can you visibly see a coating on your tongue, do your eyes appear glassy or red and irritated, do you suffer from skin rashes or acne? All of these signs are your body’s way of communicating that, it’s struggling with the toxic overload and would benefit from a Detox program otherwise known as some simple ‘Tender Loving Care’.
Sample Daily Detoxification Menu
Upon rising: Spinach, Celery, Apple & Ginger Green Juice
Break-fast: Coco-Nutty Granola & Herbal Tea (there’s literally hundreds to chose from you’re guaranteed to find one you enjoy)
Morning Tea: Raw almonds and Gogi berries
Lunch: Kale & pine nut coleslaw with creamy dressing
Dinner: Spicy Cabbage & grilled Salmon
Supper: Date & Macadamia Nut Ball & Hot chocolate with high antioxidant cacao powder, coconut milk & Cardamom
Now what if I told you that menu was Wheat free, Dairy free, Red meat free and contained no processed foods including refined sugars?
Under the guidance of a trained professional you will receive a complete menu, which focuses on all the delicious foods you can eat while on your Detoxification program, rather than all the CAN’Ts. You won’t feel deprived, you’ll feel empowered by treating your body with such love, respect & goodness.
Why is Detox such a dirty word?
When people think of a detox program we automatically think of restriction and go into panic mode. Let’s step out of that irrational fear for just a moment and take a look at it from another angle.
“Fresh clean living, healthy, light, tasty meals, gentle cleansing processes like magnesium salt bathes, massage, increased energy, improved mental clarity, weight loss, a chance to step outside your comfort zone and discover new tasty meals, renewed vitality, clearer skin and a happier brighter outlook on life”
Detox doesn’t have to be a dirty word, we just have to look at it from another angle, focusing on all the great things your body will thank you for.
