How to naturally detox your body and be healthy

For so many years as a health coach, I focused simply on digestion because I do believe that good digestion leads to a healthy life. But then one day I realized that in order to have good digestion, you must be detoxing properly. The light went off in my head. You know like one of those Aha moments. Detox for a better digestion because good digestion leads to less inflammation and less inflammation leads to less disease in this world. Let me say it again:decrease the inflammation and prevent disease.

Now detox is not a curse word or anything to be scared about; instead, it is exciting to think about your body and cells actually functioning. I do not tell people detox has to be living on juices, water only, smoothies, or just salad or soup. Detox is about lessening the toxic load in your body. As I say, “Taking out the trash.”

See, when we are toxic our body cannot perform its job. The body cannot metabolize properly, detox properly, absorb nutrients and minerals, or stay hydrated. It is a vicious cycle. See detox is necessary to be healthy, happy and free of disease. We all have some low level inflammation because, again, we breathe but, even more, so we stress in this busy world.

So, every time we stress, we create acid in our body, and our body is forced to pull minerals to buffer the acid waste, and then our liver, lymph, and kidneys begin to work hard to filter out the toxic load.

When your digestive system is not working and cannot break down these foods, it cannot focus on getting RID of TOXINS, and that means you cannot get rid of bloat and fat and skin breakouts and all that jazz that keeps you tired.

TOXINS => INFLAMMATION => WEAK DIGESTION =>

  • Difficult weight management
  • Constipation/Diarrhea
  • Gas/Bloating
  • Headaches
  • Low energy
  • Low sex drive
  • Bad skin
  • Heartburn/Reflux
  • Moodiness/Depression

By detoxing, YOU will improve digestion and therefore free your body of inflammation and toxins.

The foundation of this detox is NOT to ever feel deprived or starved. The goal is to help YOU do what I have learned to do in my own life: learn how to EAT CLEAN and learn what foods are IRRITATING your body.

Eating clean is a way of life, not a fad diet.

So, we begin to eat whole foods that promote detox in a safe and natural way. No, you do not have to only drink juices, or soups, or smoothies, or go on a grapefruit-eating-only diet; instead, you need to eat foods that are not irritating your digestive system and clogging it up.

So here are my tips for how to naturally detox your body and be healthy:

  • Upon waking, drink warmwater with lemon and 1tsp raw apple cider vinegar (if tolerated) and add a dash of cinnamon or cayenne.
  • Start your day by being positive. Find a daily affirmation that gets you fired up. I love Louise Hay, Geneen Roth, Gabrielle Bernstein, and Marianne Williamson.
  • Try getting quiet within you, even just for one minute, and say, “I release what does not serve me.” Hold your heart as you say this out loud and scream it if you want. Own that power.
  • Drink fresh, green juicesor make your own green juice with lemon,lime and water.
  • Aim for one meal that is super easy on your digestion per day. Try a smoothie, green juice, or soup to give your digestion a rest.
  • Get moving & shaking. Yes, exercise is one of the best ways to detox your body.
  • Drink plenty of water& add lemon, lime, or grapefruit to flush the toxicity.
  • Skin brushing is my favourite way to support the liver and get rid of those toxins.
  • Tongue Brushing.
  • BE Happy and Grateful for your Life.
