Detox…Should You Or Should You Not?

Our bodies are amazing machines. They can take whatever food-like substance we give them and at least for a while, make it work as fuel. But eventually, they will stop working if we don’t consume the right nutrients.

Because of the Standard American Diet (SAD), the environment, high levels of stress, and water, soil and air pollution, our bodies have become rather toxic. We have chemicals, heavy metals and other substances in our bodies that don’t support our good health.

When these substances enter our bodies through the mechanisms I previously mentioned, the liver and kidneys work to remove them from the vital organs where they can cause the most harm. The body protects itself from the deleterious effects of these toxins by storing them in adipose tissue…aka our fat cells.

The presence of toxins in adipose tissue can hinder a person’s ability to achieve and maintain a healthy body weight. This issue can be alleviated by removing the toxins from the body through a gentle detoxification process. It is extremely important not to rush the process with an aggressive detoxification because by releasing an abundance of toxins into the bloodstream, the system becomes overloaded and cannot expel them from the body quickly enough. The result is the recirculation of the toxins back through the body, only to begin the process all over again.

The key is to gently detoxify your body by eating the right foods, drinking plenty of healthy fluids like fresh water and herbal tea, getting plenty of restorative sleep, and exercise that generates lots of perspiration.

If you live on this planet, eat the food it provides, breathe the air, drink the water and live a life that has stress, both and bad, you would benefit from a gentle detox.


ICYMI…How about a sugar detox? I don’t have a fancy name for this program but I can tell you a little about it. We’ll begin on September 17th and end October 15th using Zoom. Each session will consist of a short presentation by me, followed by Q&A, discussion of challenges and celebration of wins.

If you want to get your energy back, lose a few pounds and generally feel better, this is the place for you. I’ll share some of the strategies I used to eliminate sugar from my life and to get back on track in my own weight loss journey.

Won’t it be nice to eliminate cravings, not feel that “hangry” feeling when your blood sugar drops, and to be able to control what you’re eating?
