Detox

I have a love/ hate relationship with doing my 10 day detox program. I hate the idea of going without certain food items, but I love the way I feel during and after doing it. I have to prep myself mentally before starting but once I get into it, I remember why I do it. My energy level goes up, I sleep better and I like knowing I am doing something to help my body function better overall. It also helps to instill discipline which is necessary to achieve health.

Why should we do a detox? That is a great question. The main reason is because it is impossible to avoid toxins. They build up in our body over time and, as a result, start to cause problems. Even if we try to eat a perfect diet, there are still environmental toxins we take in every day. I like to think of a detox as a way to hit the “reset” button for our body. It gives it a break from the normal toxins and allows your body to clean out all the junk that has been building up. It is also a great way to put out the fire in our body, which is inflammation. Most health conditions are a result of inflammation in the body. When you do a detox, your inflammation level is lowered and health is improved.

There are many ways to do a detox. I have found that using a medical food supplement while detoxing is a great way to ensure your body is getting all the nutrients it needs to properly function and clear out the built up toxins. At my office, I carry a medical food supplement from Metagenics. I use this product and follow a 10 day guideline for the detox. There is also a 7 day program.

Fasting is another way to detox. If your health condition allows, fasting for a period of time allows your body to clear out some toxins.

Another way I like to detox on a regular basis is with an Epson salt bath. I love doing this because its benefits are two fold. First, it pulls toxins out of your body and, second, it provides a way to relax.

I have resolved to the fact that to achieve the health I want, detox is a must. Even though it is not appealing to deprive myself, it is worth it. The benefits far exceed the cost. Therefore, I love it more than I hate it.

Live life to the fullest.
