why autumn is a great time to cleanse

Just as the trees drop their leaves in Autumn, it’s the perfect time for you to cleanse before the transition into winter. This is especially true if you overindulged during summer with holidays and social events. According to Chinese medicine the period 10 days before and 10 days after the Autumn Equinox (September 22nd) is the most ideal time. Even if you can’t manage a full detox during this period, cleansing on the day of the equinox is thought to be very beneficial.

One of the reasons why detoxing in Autumn is so helpful is that is has been shown to reduce or eliminate winter colds. By releasing toxins your immune system will be in much better shape keeping you healthy during the Winter months ahead.

detox – not just for girls!

Think detox is for girls  – think again!

I know some of my investment banking colleagues use to see detox as a fashion trend for girls – then they met me! I explained to them that detoxing is far from a modern fad. It’s an ancient healing technique that was used frequently in Egyptian times, in Ayruveda, by Hippocrates the father of western medicine and was used frequently until the advent of modern medicine.

As digestion takes up to 70% of our bodies energy when the digestive tract is not at work it can heal and repair and the energy liberated from the digestive process goes into healing tissues in the body. It’s not unusual for old injuries to begin to heal again after a few days into the detox process.

Recently the BBC Horizon program Eat, Fast and Live Longer highlighted the benefits of different fasting techniques on our health – focusing on men in their 40-50’s. You have the choice of going down a path of medications and ill health or watching what you eating and living out more healthy productive years in your life.

Of course it’s not just your blood stats that are going to improve either. Inner health radiates out and I know you guys want a flatter stomach, clearer skin, brighter eyes, increased mental clarity just as much as the rest of us! A lot of men get worried about losing muscle weight but remember there are lots of options out there, including healthy eating plans with more protein designed for highly active individuals. And if you have been doing intensive training a short sharp juice cleanse may be all you need for that tricky fat stripping stage that brings increased definition to your abdominals.

So relax. You’ve come to the right place! So don’t be shy get in contact with me and I can show you the way… click here to start!

 

why detox?

Detoxing is about giving our body a break. Far from being a modern fad, the philosophy of detoxification began thousands of years ago. In Ayurveda detox was an important part of health routines for emotional and physical cleansing. It’s not just about food either. Emotions also have a toxic effect on the body and if not dealt with can be stored. Detoxification is about breaking from the routine of daily life to allow time for the emotional and dietary toxins to be processed.

No matter how healthy your diet the body still needs time to cleanse and repair.  Think for a moment how much work the different organs in our body do daily. For example the liver is responsible for controlling blood sugar levels, synthesising cholesterol, blood cleansing, immune function, and detoxification of chemicals such as waste products of metabolism and breakdown of old hormones! Detoxification is a way to give the body a break and allow the liver and other parts of our digestive system to “catch up”.  In this cleaner state the body functions more efficiently and as such many clients feel energised, have better skin, notice an improvement in mood and their weight normalises.

There are many types of detox plans ranging from juice fasting to raw food to cooked Ayurvedic food and many combinations. Some allow detoxification faster than others, and its important to factor in individual biochemical differences in people as well as lifestyle. It’s essential your body is suitably nourished before the program as the detoxification pathways require specific vitamins and minerals. All the channels of elimination in the body must be functioning at their best as well to deal with the release of toxins. If not eliminated in a timely manner toxins can cause unnecessary ill health.

Detox for health

Detox is really about hitting the reset button in the body.

The liver is one of the key organs in the body. It has so many tasks if it’s not healthy then it cannot perform all these tasks efficiently, leaving us feeling tired, prone to weight gain, and hormonal balances.

The  liver is responsible for controlling blood sugar levels, synthesising cholesterol, blood cleansing, immune function, and detoxification of chemicals such as waste products of metabolism and breakdown of old hormones!

When the liver is overworked – it stores toxins in fat cells which are a ‘safe’ place where the toxins don’t harm the body, resulting in cellulite. Only when the liver is functioning optimally will it have time to work through all these stored toxins. Sometimes people can’t lose weight because the body is too toxic and holding on to the fat cells as a way to protect itself from toxins.

Detoxification is a way to give the body a break and allow the liver and other parts of our digestive system to “catch up”.  In this cleaner state the body functions more efficiently and as such many clients feel energised, have better skin, notice an improvement in mood and their weight normalises.

Maintenance eating after a detox will really help extend the benefits and increase your health. Think to eat ‘clean’ food free of toxins as this is going to lessen the load on your liver – fill your diet with lots of organic fruit and vegetables.  Hydration is also key, so consider introducing more fluids such as water, herbal tea and coconut water into your day and eliminating dehydrating and toxin forming items such as alcohol, coffee, fried and salty foods.
