Welcome to the - Secrets of a Full Body Detox. There are three things most people get wrong when detoxing and I am here to tell you what you should do instead.
Still the question is 'why a full body detox'?
At conception we inherited our parents state of health through bloodlines. Now dare to purify by preventing or eliminating poisonous, destructive habits from your life, by establishing natural living through seasonal nutritional cleanse.
Many of you have told me that you are excited to learn about how you can have a really effective full body detox. I'm really looking forward to sharing this information with you.
I especially want to share with those of you who have never detoxed before. Or, if you have ever been like me and you've tried a bunch of different detoxes but just hasn't found the one that's right for you.
It doesn't take an expert to recognize that many of these other poorly implemented detox experiences don't go the way they're supposed to, and they don't set us up for long-term results.
So let us talk for a minute about why body detoxification is important in the first place.
Detoxification is a normal part of your body's daily processes. When detoxing learn how your heart beats, your lungs breathe, and your stomach breaks down food, so that can remove toxins, pollutants, chemicals and waste from your body every single day.
Focusing on what other people are doing to detox or forcing yourself to do a detox that simply isn't right for you isn't the answer, and can be downright dangerous.
If you're new to detoxing, doing a lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne pepper detox or an all juice detox is one of the worst things you can do because your system can be thrown into shock from the extreme change.
What To Do Instead: Trust your instincts and your body. Our bodies are different and the reality is that there just isn't a one size fits all detox.
I am encouraging you to try a detox that's built around adding in lots of detoxifying foods to your diet rather than restricting and depriving you of food.
These kinds of detoxes are just as effective and can actually be better for you because you'll stick with the whole program instead of giving up. Even better, your body WON'T go into crisis mode.
This is a huge one, and a mistake I see beginning and seasoned detoxes make all the time. I especially notice this in January and February, when everyone's just set New Year's resolutions and they're determined to drop the weight they gained over the holidays.
However, doing a juice cleanse in January and February can set you up for DISASTER for the rest of the year.
When you deprive your body of sufficient calories, fat and protein when it's in winter survival mode, your body will mis-read what's happening and assume that you're starving.
The body slows down your metabolism and does everything it can to keep you alive.
What To Do Instead: Green juices and smoothies are a really powerful tool when it comes to detoxing, but they are best used in spring and summer detoxes.
So when you're looking for the RIGHT detox for you, be sure to look for one that understands the role SEASONS play in developing the detox that will be best for the time of year.
Yup, I said it. I used to look at detoxes as something that I needed to suffer through in order to be a high quality health coach.
But I have since realized that in order to have a successful full body detox, there's a better approach. Instead of looking at a detox as punishment, what if you looked at the experiences as an opportunity for you to provide some high quality self-care for yourself?
Women often get so caught up in taking care of others that our own self-care falls to the wayside.
And here is the problem with that ... when you don't take care of yourself, you eventually run out of energy to take care of everyone else, too.
As I often say to my clients and in my speaking engagements, you simply can't pour from an empty pitcher.
What To Do Instead: Use detoxes as a time for you to recharge and renew your body, mind and soul.
The really cool thing about allowing yourself to look at a full body detox as a way of filling your empty pitcher, is that when you've been renewed and rejuvenated, your capacity to show up for yourself and others grows exponentially.
Again, I want to encourage you to consider joining my spring detox if what I've said is resonating with you. If it is, please head over to my 5-day body detox plan and sign up right now so you can be sure to get your Make It Last handbook as a thank you for your quick action.
Fortunately, spring is a great time to detox because many of the foods that grow in spring are naturally high in detoxifying properties.
Asparagus, lettuce, spinach, parsley, watercress and even nettle and dandelion are powerful detoxifiers. So spring is certainly a delicious time to commit to doing a detox.
Now that we know why we might need to detox, let's dive right into the ways that people get detoxing WRONG.
And, of course, I'll share what you need to do to make sure you're detoxing the RIGHT way throughout this website.
