While there is skepticism regarding the effectiveness of detox diets, the importance of revamping your lifestyle could not be more urgent. Some professionals believe eating a healthy diet is enough to support your detoxification systems. However, I believe that a healthy diet and an integrated holistic detox can support the health of your body in a more dynamic way. Being balanced through a detox lifestyle will not only allow you to specifically support your body as it eliminates toxins, but will also provide you with a healthy center that will ultimately leave the greatest impact.
Our bodies were built to remove toxins from our systems, but the toxins we consume on a daily basis are more numerous and pervasive than ever before. Since The Toxic Substances Control Act of 1976 more than 80,000 chemicals have been approved with little or no safety testing! In fact, the burden of proof is on the EPA to show that a chemical is harmful, rather than on the manufacturer to show that it is safe. Only about one-fourth of these chemicals have ever been tested for safety at all. In addition, we don’t know the synergistic effect these chemical cocktails have on our bodies.
We simply cannot continue to treat our bodies the same way as our ancestors did. We are fighting a very different kind of battle now. That is why a detox-centered lifestyle is so important.
My philosophy and approach to detox has always been one that focuses on gentle dietary changes and support. The simple changes I encourage can be followed day in and day out, leading to an actual lifestyle change, not just a 3-day fast or a 2-week diet.
What is detoxification? The removal of accumulated toxins and the negative effects toxin buildup has on the body.
Where do toxins come from? Toxins are everywhere. They are in the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat and in skincare and cleaning products we use every day.
Why detox? The buildup of toxins has been linked to conditions such as diabetes, cancer, asthma, estrogen dominance and even obesity. Regular periods of detox support your body in clearing out these toxins, leading to better health, disease prevention, healing, freedom from addictions, weight loss, increased energy, and more.
