What the Heck is a Detox?

Something to Consider...


What a buzzword these Days - Detox!

The term detox is generally a short term nutritional change/diet that helps to clean the body. To rid of toxicity and bring balance back to the body.

Principles of detoxification have been used in many cultures for century's.

For example:

  •  In China methods such as detox teas, cupping and foot detox pads have been used.
  • In India, Ayurveda and Ayurvedic (considered by some as one of the oldest healing science's), principles have been used based on the premise that the body can heal itself. Detox is often done in the spring.


Some Benefits from Detox include:

  • Improved immune function
  • Purify Blood
  • Renewed energy
  • Clearer skin and eyes
  • Less intestinal bloating
  • Rid the body of food addictions, allergens and cravings
  • Weight loss


There are many popular Detox Diets in the United States such as:

  • Master Cleanse
  • Raw Food Diet
  • The Clean Diet
  • Martha's Vineyard Detox Diet


The most important thing to remember is that your normal diet - the way that you eat and self care every day can be the closest step toward a detox diet. The significance of creating an eating plan that keeps your body detoxed and in balance every day.

Getting there is the next step!
