Many people feel like they should do a detox but are not sure why they should be doing one, in this blog we will go through the reasons why you may want to do a detox. Detoxing your body is definitely something that should be done from time to time as the body sometimes needs extra help in detoxifying. A detox can be as short as a seven-day course or as long a month, effectively you are trying to cleanse your body and improve your detoxification pathway.
Detoxing is not all about just taking a magic tablet and thinking you have done a detox, you need to eat a well-balanced diet as well. While you are completing a detox, you should try to eat a fresh, wholesome, in season diet that has a lot of variety. Try to decrease your processed and packaged foods as this will ensure you are eating a fresh diet which is low in preservatives, and artificial colourings and flavourings. Increasing your variety of fruit and vegetables will help you get the vitamins your body needs to support energy and wellbeing.
Detoxing products will vary everywhere you go, you can choose tablets, powders, liquids and herbal teas. Our Naturopath Sarah prefers to prescribes powder as you don’t have the tabletting agent to break down in your body. Powders also offer a higher dose of vitamins, minerals and herbs, so you don’t have to take as much. If you would like any information regarding a detox or cleanse please see our Naturopath Sarah.
