What is a detox?
detox is a set of actions designed to decrease or remove toxins and waste from your body. Your body does this naturally, every day by excreting things through bowel movements, sweating and urinating. However, many factors can weaken this normal function and hinder your body’s ability to eliminate these kinds of harmful substances. When your system becomes overloaded, toxins begin to buildup in the body and the result impacts overall health. Body detox and cleansing helps to release this burden.
What is a toxin?
A toxin is any substance which is harmful to your body. Pollution, poisons, chemicals, synthetics, artificial foods and by-products.
Toxins can be absorbed through the skin and mucous membranes, from food, water and air.
Can I exercise while doing this detox?
Exercise helps flush out toxins and helps release stored stress and tension. Exercise helps to promote positive thinking, boost your confidence and calms your mind; it also overall improves a sense of health and wellbeing. Break a sweat in a fun way every day but adjust if necessary.
What if I'm hungry?
You can eat as much food as your body needs – though it’s important to begin to feel the difference between true hunger, blood sugar imbalance, and/or cravings that can indicate nutrient deficiencies.
Many detox-fans come to enjoy not feeling full or heavy from eating foods they don’t really need. It becomes enjoyable to fully experience true hunger because you know that your body has rested and digested and now needs more nourishment.
Is removing all sugar from the diet dangerous?
Sugar, in its refined form, is not a nutritional requirement and essentially robs the body of nutrients and plays a significant role in inflammation and weight gain. There are no known dangers caused by abstaining from sugar (humans lived sugar-free for thousands of years!).
Do I have to take any additional supplements or pills?
The only supplement I recommend that everyone take daily is a probiotic, and you’ll learn why in this program and we've added an optional CBD supplement.
How will I feel during this program?
You will be amazed by how healthy and energized you feel! At the beginning of detox, your body may go through a “cleansing phase” to re-balance itself. It is important to listen to your body through this program, and I will be here to support you with that. I will guide you gradually through exactly what can be done to reduce any unwanted symptoms that may show up. This program is completely flexible because we’re here to figure out what works for YOU!
I already eat super clean; can I still benefit from this program?
Many people who eat very clean diets can still benefit from a detox program to take their healthy habits to the next level. Introducing new foods gives our digestion time to rest and reset, which can be helpful for anyone regardless of their current eating habits.
