Feel Good from the Inside Out

Detoxing is the process of eliminating toxins from the body through proper diet, exercise, supplements and healthy living. We are exposed to a number of pollutants every day; from free radicals in the air, smog and smoke, pesticides and other toxins in the foods that we eat, as well as a number of other chemicals and hazards we come across in our day to day routines. Detoxification, put simply, makes you feel rejuvenated, healthy and ready to tackle another day.

Starting a Healthy Detox

The best way to begin a detox is by visiting your healthcare professional to discuss your plan and any symptoms you’re experiencing. Your healthcare professional can recommend foods and lifestyle changes that are healthiest for you.

Eliminate Processed Foods

Cut out processed foods from your diet. These include items such as store-bought pastries, microwave dinners, and many of the pre-prepared products you find in the middle aisles of your grocery store. Instead of relying on these convenience items, fill up on whole foods such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and lean meats and fish that you find when shopping the perimeter.

Stick With It

Try to maintain the changes to your diet and lifestyle for at least two weeks. Keeping up your healthy detox plan for at least two weeks gives your body a chance to adjust. To help you maintain momentum, we have a number of detox recipes designed to hook you on health at first bite and keep you psyched about eating well again.
