This is probably the best time of year, anytime between now and Christmas - for detox. Today I was reading in the internet and came across several mentions and articles on this topic and it caught my attention because they were generally so way off base...made me wonder if the people who wrote them have ever done a detox themselves.
Right now I am deep in the middle of a detox, about 5 weeks into it with changes to diet, exercise routine and generally working away at removing embedded toxins. A detox takes time- lots of time. You cannot flood your body with toxins and then expect it to be mopped up instantly.
Preferably detoxing will be done with a weight loss program, where the toxins released by the fat/tissue as the weight comes off are dealt with gently by use of detoxifying herbs, skin brushing, massage, exercise and of course the all important emotional work.
Your body will never deliberately allow your tissues to be toxic- there are safe guards and mechanisms in place for this and of course the presence of toxins is the reason for the weight in the first place. Once this weight comes off in a planned, controlled manner, a detox plan should also be in place to safely remove these poisons from the system. And then the weight will not need to come back on.
Needless to say this is not done in a weekend- such a detox needs planning and then careful attention to the diet and lifestyle. It is also challenging and not to be taken lightly.
If you want things to change in your life, if you find you are stuck in old negative patterns which hold you back, if there is excess weight, IBS, depression etc- then perhaps it is time for a detox. I will keep you posted on how I am doing...
Clean your body and change your life.
