The ins & outs of detox

One way in, four ways out. Yep take a moment to consider. The mouth is the only way to ingest food, and but the body has four ways to excrete.  1. Defecate, 2. Urinate, 3. Transpiration through skin, the presence of spots, rash and irritations in the skin can be a sign of bad digestion, 4. Breath, which through poor digestion you can have the symptom of bad breath

The fact that there are so many ways for the body to excrete highlights the importance for the removal and wastes from our body. The body is capable of fasting for 40 days (average of course depends on the person!), but without excretion the body is likely to be slowly poisoned in a much shorter period of time.

A lot of stored toxins are liberated during a cleanse, the most important factor is that they leave your body in a timely manner. Make sure all the channels of elimination are in good working order!
A helpful tip is to start dry skin brushing. See the YouTube clip from our nutritionist Belinda Mann on how to do this. If you need a dry skin brush Nutri Centre is a great online resource that offers free UK delivery.

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.
