Detoxing can be a tricky and daunting undertaking, especially if you’ve never done it before. But there are a ton of health benefits to cutting back on not-so-good-for-you foods and giving your body a break so it can cleanse and reset. Detoxing isn't for everyone, but if you've thoughtfully committed to doing it, know that you're taking care of yourself. Ultimately, you will feel refreshed, radiant, and powerful. Below are tips and information on how to detox: what to expect and how to set yourself up for success.
Human bodies are like machines. We need to clean their pieces from time to time and let them rest. The easiest and most inexpensive way to do so is through a cleanse. By healthfully juicing for a couple of days, you can eliminate toxins that have accumulated over time and allow your body’s digestive system to rest and repair. Most issues begin and end with the digestive tract so keeping it happy is key. By eliminating toxins, you unclog the clogged and purify the body.
How to detox?
There’s no perfect way to prepare for a detox, but the more you do it, the more your body will love this period of rest. Symptoms during a cleanse are signs of toxicity, which means that your body is working hard. Go for a 1, 3, 5, or 7 day all liquid detox composed of fruits, vegetables, and raw nut milks, with lots of water in between so your body continues to flush everything out. The body and the mind are fully connected, so if you trick the mind, your body will respond accordingly.
