How should one go about detoxing?

Whether you are healing your body from dis-ease, wanting more energy or finally ready to cleanse from all the weekend eating— the first step is to fully detox the body of the excess acid and mucus. Focus on cleansing your colon, your blood and internal organs.

Abstain from eating highly inflammatory acidic foods such as processed/junk foods, seafood, meats and diary. Focus on consuming more water, preferably spring alkaline, to better flush excess toxins out your system.

In order to heal, one must also practice positive thinking, trying not to stress your mind or the body. Meditate while focusing on your healing, so that you can be at ease inside out, and outside in.

Herbs are key in healing eliminating acid from the body. Herbs such as: Burdock Root, Juniper berries, Devils claw, Uva Ursi, dandelion root, yellow dock root, nettle, mullien leaf, kalawalla, alfalfa leaves, nopal cactus powder (prickly pear) to name a few are great for this acid removal.

Signs your body needs a detox:

Digestive Problems: First and foremost. If you find yourself dealing with constipation, bloating, or irregular bowel movements, this is the easiest way to tell your body needs a detox.

Joint Pain: Toxins can contribute to inflammation, leading to joint pain and stiffness.

Food Cravings: Intense cravings, especially for sugary or processed foods, is a tell of imbalances in your body that a detox will help address. Remember, these cravings can also be related to parasites. Sometimes our cravings are not ours!

Trouble Sleeping: Difficulty falling asleep or staying asleep could be a sign that your body is struggling to detoxify during the natural repair and rejuvenation process of sleep.

Skin Issues: Breakouts, rashes, or lackluster skin is a strong indicatory that your body is trying to eliminate toxins through the skin. Give it the help it needs by detoxing!

“Proper exercise, proper breathing, proper relaxation, proper diet, and positive thinking are the requisite attendant that lead to a healthy dynamic, and effective existence.”
