Detox? What, how and why?


detox and feel great

Over time our systems accumulate toxins by simply eating, breathing and drinking.
In addition to that, most of us do not live in a 100% natural environment and are exposed to much more impressions and stimulations which could lead to more stress and exhaustion.

By reducing our food, we can actually promote health and wellbeing. In the comfort of your home you can try out these steps:

1. Start by reducing refined products (salt, sugar, processed foods, ..), animal products, wheat, alcohol, coffee, etc. step by step. Depending on how long it takes you to feel  comfortable with this, you then continue.

2. Add longer periods of not eating (intermittent fasting: 8 hrs time to eat vs 16 hrs of fasting) and integrating healthier food like green smoothies and other light meals.

3. Detox for a week (or more) with smoothies and superfoods, like wheatgrass, chlorella, etc. and keep doing that until you feel comfortable before you continue. 

4. Fast with water, tea and vegetable broths only for a week (or longer).

5. Introduce a healthy plant based diet, keeping the intermittent fasting

 

All stages will be easier and nicer when supported by gentle breathing techniques, meditation and yin yoga classes with Lets Yoga or your trusted teacher.

Can I still work? Yes, you can still work, although it might be nice to take a little time to go inwards and take it easy, especially the first days as it is also an emotional letting go.

 

How do I prepare? You can prepare your body a couple of days before and also after the detox by doing a step by step out and back into eating.
