23 Reasons Why you Should Detox your Body Regularly

There are many ways to assist your body in releasing toxins. Nutritional detoxes, detoxifying brody wraps, ionic foot cleansing, nutritional supplements, massage, far infrared sauna treatments, halotherapy, exercise(sweating) are just some of the most poplular ways to rid your body and mind of toxic overload. Your body works 24/7 at ridding itself of toxic overload every day but more than ever before, we are taking in stress, EMFs(electromagnetic frequencies) from technology, toxins from food, household goods and building materials, clothes (flame retardants, dyes and pestisides) medications and so on....We are taking in more than we are often able to release. 

It's been shown time and time again, that detoxing your body regularly with fruits, vegetables, herbs, and water as well as alterantive therapies like above is enormously beneficial in your overall health. An intelligently designed detox protocol helps you get rid of more than just unwanted pounds too. This is your chance to heal your body on every level. 

When you routinely detox, you are healthier. When you are healthier you think more clearly. How often should you detox? This really depends on your lifestyle, toxin exposure, nutrition and health. 2-4 times a year though, seems to be the range for most. 

We recommend scheduling a virtual or in-house wellness consultation to determine the best methods, frequency and potential treatments to serve your individual goals and needs. We base this on your current health and history, lifestyle, sensitivites, motivation, dietary habits, etc. 

Read on for why it's important to detoxify regularly and our most poplular detox treatments...

1. It Allows you to Absorb Vitamins Better

Chemical toxins, digestive and intestinal build-up block the body’s ability to absorb nutrients. Detoxing prevents the toxins from doing this.

2. Helps your Body Process Drugs and Alcohol Better

When your liver is boosted and your metabolism is boosted, your body will eliminate drugs, incoming toxins and alcohol more efficiently.

3. Restores your Body’s Balance and You Feel Better

Detoxing on a regular basis improves your overall vitamin, mineral and metabolic balance. When you detox, you wake up feeling energetic, vibrant, alive, joyful, and full of energy. Even if you are thin but have symptoms of being toxic like fatigue, brain fog, achiness, digestive issues, allergies, and headaches, doing a detox can help you reduce symptoms or even heal quickly. Our food choices, our exposure to synthetics, chemicals and such can truly hurt or heal us.

4. Cleans Out the Waste in your Digestive Tract

After time, wastes build up in your digestive tract (think toxic residue lining your colon-ewe! ) This can contribute to certain cancers, irritabiility and more... This waste has to be eliminated in order for digestion to function properly.

5. Reduces Pain

A little known benefit of detoxing your body is that it can reduce pain in your body by reducing the amount of lactic acid that builds up in your muscles.

6. Reduces inflammation

Many symptoms of arthritis, Lyme Disease, Lupus, fybromyalgia, asthma, allergies, eczema, rosacea and many other chronic conditions are reduced by detoxifying your body. The herbs and vitamins associated with a good detoxification program, the elimination of inflammatory foods and toxins acting as triggers, all work to reduce or eliminate inflammation.

7. Helps you to Lose Weight

A healthy detox will get rid of excess weight. Your liver processes fats and helping it work more efficiently will in turn help your eliminate unwanted fat (of course, along with proper diet). The changes in vitamins, minerals, fruits, and vegetables also make it easier to keep the weight off by reducing cravings, increasing energy and over-all health. Science now tells us sugar and flour calories are VERY different FROM other food choices. It's not as simple as calories in vs. calories out. First, they trigger addiction and overeating. Then they spike insulin and inflammation, making you store belly fat and blocking your ability to feel full.  Sugar calories are worse than whole food calories. Sugar spikes insulin and triggers inflammation. This is guaranteed to mess up any attempt at long-term weight loss. Detoxifying, eliminates nasty toxins (including sugar!) that hold your weight hostage.

8. Increases Energy

When you are cleansed you have more energy, without the toxins in your body, you process foods better.

9. It Helps you Sleep Better

When you have more energy during the day, you sleep better at night.

10. Eliminates Food Sensitivities

An well designed detox will also eliminate foods that your body might be reacting to, causing inflammation and many other symptoms. The two most common and harmful food sensitivities are gluten and dairy. Many people do not realize that they have these hidden food sensitivities. These are not true allergies, like a peanut or shellfish allergy that makes your tongue swell, closes off your throat, creates hives, and can kill you in minutes. These are more subtle reactions to everyday foods. On The Blood Sugar Solution 10-Day Detox Diet,  you remove gluten, dairy, and other reactive foods that make you sick, tired, fat, and inflamed.

A routine cleansing of the body, keeps you in better condition than you would be otherwise.

11. Detoxifies the Liver

Most cleansing herbs and minerals help the liver and increase bile flow, which is the key organ in detoxifying the blood, processing fats and more. 

12. Improves your Skin and Hair

A detoxification regime with vitamins and minerals makes your skin and hair look healthier. This is both because your are flooding your body with the nutrition it needs to regenerate cells (think youthful appearance from better cell renewal and quicker to heal from acne) and because you are eliminating cellular robbing sugars.

13. Helps to Cleanse your Body of Heavy Metals and Parasites

Depending on the foods you choose and the herbs that you use to detox, you can really target elimnating unwanted and very toxic heavy metals such as mercury, lead as well as unwanted parasites.

14. You Get a Reboot

The best way to reset your life is with a detox. Simple, delicious foods. No toxins or drugs, by which I mean sugar, flour, processed foods, caffeine or alcohol. Self-nurturing practices: deep breathing, sleeping 7 to 8 hours a night, a little exercise, and self-love. All this works to get your body and mind back to their original factory settings—and quickly!One of the main benefits of detoxification is getting rid of the toxins in your body.

15. Helps Combat Chronic Disease

A detox that is healthy is rich in antioxidants that help you to combat chronic diseases.

16. You Have Better Sex

Sex hormones, toxicity, and a healthy insulin balance are more intimately linked than you might think. We’ve been conditioned to believe that low sex drive and other symptoms become normal as we age. They don’t. Libido-crashing mood disorders in women and men reaching for a “little blue pill” do not need to be a part of the aging process. Bad habits such as drinking and smoking, exposure to environmental toxins, and being chronically stressed all diminish sex hormone balance. When you detox, you eliminate toxins – including sugar – that create hormonal imbalances and wreak havoc on your metabolism. Once you understand how insulin can impact other hormones (including your sex hormones), you begin to connect the dots about how toxic food and a toxic environment can wreck your sex life.After time wastes build up in your digestive tract, this waste has to be eliminated in order for digestion to function properly.

17. Reduces Pain

A little known benefit of detoxing your body is that it can reduce pain in your body by reducing the amount of lactic acid that builds up in your muscles.

18. Reduces inflammation

Many symptoms of arthritis and other chronic conditions are reduced by detoxing your body. The herbs and vitamins associated with a good detoxification program can also be anti-inflammatory.

19. Boosts your Immune System

Detoxing improves the appearance of your skin and hair.

The vitamins and minerals that you take in during the detox process help to boost your immune response and cleanse the lymphatic system.

20. Slows Aging

A good healthy detoxification is known to slow the aging process by slowing the rate of cellular decay and encouraging cellular development.

21. Reduces Body Odor

After you get rid of the toxins in your body, there is a reduction in overall body odor, particularly if you are using any fasting method.

22. Reduces Incidents of Bad Breath

Reducing the toxins in your system can reduce bad breath and tooth decay.

23. Eliminates Cravings

Did you know sugar and flour are biologically addictive? The science proves it. Sadly, we still blame the fat person for being a lazy, leading to shame and guilt. But it's just not that way. Our biology has literally been hijacked by the food industry. They invest boatloads of money on finding ways to influence our taste buds, brain chemistry, hormones, and metabolism. More than 300 food industry insiders spilled the beans to Michael Moss in his book, Salt Sugar Fat, explaining they hire “craving experts” to create the “bliss point” of junk food to create “heavy users” and increase their “stomach share.” Sugar has become the new nicotine. In fact, sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine. If you are trying to use willpower to lose weight, you will fail. A detox allows you to unhook yourself from the addictive power of sugar, flour, and hyper-processed, hyper-palatable food-like substances.
