holiday detox

It’s been more than two weeks since Christmas and if you are like many, you went overboard on the sweets and treats during the season. While many not have moved and it seemed harmless at the time, the problem is now when when you are trying to return to your regularly scheduled eating plan. When we overindulge on sugar and carbs, we trigger the appetite and continue to crave…. more sugar and carbs. So although you may have kept the weight off then, you may begin to struggle now. So what can you do? The answer, you may have guessed, is detox.

 

What does it mean to detox?

According to the Global Healing Center, to detox is is to rid the body of toxins found in foods (chemicals, pesticides, artificial food ingredients) as well as environmental toxins such as pollutants, smoke, mold, pet dander and toxic fumes.

 

Here are some ways you can begin a healthy detox:

 

1)    Adjust your diet temporarily by going raw. This means consuming only fruits and vegetables (uncooked), and eating nuts and seeds. A raw diet consists of unprocessed and organic foods.

 

2)    Choose foods free of pesticides and GMOs (genetically modified organisms).

 

3)    Detox the brain with yoga and meditation and exercise.

 

4)    Create a healthy environment at home by considering an air purifier.

 

5)    Drink water, drink water, drink water. And when you think you have had enough water, drink more water. If the idea of plain water is tough to swallow (pun intended), then try infusing with lemon, lime or cucumber. It’s important to stay hydrated while detoxing and it will help you feel full as well.

 

Although the process seems relatively simple, it’s good to note that the first 5-10 days of the detox process can be challenging. Re-programming the body and resisting cravings can be difficult in the beginning but getting through the initial days will be worth the way you feel in the end. Once the body and organs are cleansed, they can operate on a higher level. Improvements in body function will raise your levels of energy, focus, and organ function. Adopting a healthy lifestyle for more than 2 weeks is generally enough time to adopt new habits.
