chew your juice, and drink your food

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.

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.

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.
