(NOTE: If you’re reading this after April 1, 2019 make sure you read until the end!)
Spring is here….time to detox! Everyone needs a good cleansing, right?! So many environmental pollutants, heavy metals, chemicals, pesticides are wreaking havoc on your body!
If you suffer any of these symptoms you might have toxic overload:
- belly fat
- food cravings (especially sweets!)
- low energy
- mood swings
- aches and pains
- acne or poor skin health
- resistance to weight loss
- poor memory
- dark circles under your eyes.
It’s time to reduce inflammation (the cause of many diseases), cleanse your liver, support digestion, balance your hormones, improve memory, and a side benefit…weight loss!
If your diet has ANY of these, you definitely need to detox! Some of the most troublesome:
dairy, GMOs, wheat, corn, soy, non-organic food, chemicals (especially pesticides!) and food dyes.
Choose your favorite:
- 7-day cold-pressed juice cleanse
- 3-day gut reset
- A bowel-irrigating colonic treatment
- Intermittent fasting
- Essential oils, apple cider vinegar, herbs, and superfoods
- A coffee enema
- The Master Cleanse (oh….but so last year)
So, do you need a detox?
Today is April 1 – you know what that means? APRIL FOOLs!!! 🙂
Detoxing -> cleansing. Newsflash! It’s absurd. There aren’t caked-on toxins hanging around your colon needing to be removed. And your body is its own natural detoxification system using the liver, kidneys, skin, and lungs.
Want to “detox?” Don’t waste money on any of the above treatments. Purge your diet of highly manufactured food-like substances and eat fruits/veggies (does NOT need to be organic), whole grains and lean protein! Unless you have an allergy, there is NO need to avoid dairy, wheat, corn, soy, genetically engineered (GMO) food.
Science does not back up detox benefits. Here’s a post What’s the Deal with Detox Diets you might like.
