Yes! You read it right! Detoxing is about giving your digestive system a break. No matter which type of detox plan you end up doing the way you eat/drink is just as important. It’s the perfect time to re-set your eating habits – learning to take time over food.
So chewing your juice means you savour each sip and swish it around your mouth before swallowing. Drinking your food might not sound so obvious at first, but it means chewing until the food becomes liquid and you naturally start to swallow it. It might sound strange at first, but it’s much nicer than undigested food in your intestines!
One good reason to take on this motto is that you will feel MUCH more satisfied compared to just downing you juice in one hit. Also digestion begins in the mouth with enzymes found in saliva – so this maximises the digestive process and absorption of the amazing healthy food your are giving your body.
So during your detox learn to savour your food. You’ll be surprised by how satisfied you feel when you take your time. Drop me an email to find out more about which detox is right for you.
So you’ve decided it’s time to detox – how exciting. I bet you’re looking forward to all the benefits that come from detox such as feeling lighter, having clearer skin and shiny eyes. As well as looking better on the outside a detox can also clear away ‘mental toxins’ that have built up over time. If you’ve been ‘stuck in a rut’ this mental clarity can allow you to see how you can get the most of your life. The right detox plan helps unlock your true potential and increases your vitality in every sense of the word. Get in touch so I can help find the perfect detox solution for you.
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!
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.
