Top Reasons to Do a Detox - 24Seven Wellness & Living

A detox diet is designed to help rid the body of toxins and excess waste. It is imperative for a body to rid itself of the overload. It also helps to retrain your brain and your tastebuds.

This past October I spent a month pouring through research to come up with what I believed to be the perfect detox. I set my goal for three days. Being that I am a holistic health coach I eat clean on a regular basis, so I didn’t think it would be any big deal to do the detox. What I discovered shocked me. My diet may have been good but my body was not clean. I felt my body eliminating toxins during the three days. On the fourth day it was a revelation to feel my body lighter, and more vibrant. I was ecstatic when I had finished.

I began my career in nutrition in 2007 and at that point I was able to heal myself of hypoglycemia and asthma, but still suffered for years with chronic migraines. This was frustrating to me, as I thought I was doing everything right. I am happy to say that after the detox the migraines are gone.

Detox is usually done with the change of seasons. Now is the ideal time to do a spring detox.

Since October I have had almost a hundred people complete my detox program and virtually all of them have said they felt better afterwards.

Some of the benefits I see are:

  1. Eliminated stored wastes and weight loss.
  2. Improved vitality, energy levels and mental clarity.
  3. Improved circulation through purifying the liver, kidney and blood.
  4. You may stop bad eating habits, allowing your stomach to reduce to a normal size for weight control.
  5. People with heart problems may notice a more regular heartbeat
  6. Blood sugar and cholesterol lowered.
  7. Reduced Fatigue
  8. Reduced Bloating
  9. Eliminates Headaches and brain fog
  10. Reduces belly fat
  11. Reduced Joint Pain
  12. Eliminates Itchy Skin
  13. Eliminates Sleeplessness
  14. Safely rids your body of toxins
  15. Boosts your immune system & increases energy

Detoxification is a normal process, your body is constantly trying to neutralize and eliminate toxins through the major organs such as your colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymphs and skin. But, what if your self-cleaning system is overloaded and blocked up?

Research shows that detoxing may be the missing link to disease prevention, especially for immune-deficiency diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, chronic fatigue syndrome and candida.

Even if you have a great diet, cleansing is the perfect way to boost your immune system and protect yourself from toxins with a good internal cleanse.

I guarantee you that you will feel so much better when you are finished. The best part is that you will be more mindful moving forward. You will definitely think twice before putting garbage into your body after a detox.

Three days is usually just long enough to get rid of sugar cravings and break caffeine addiction. 

There is so much conflicting information out there. Everyday our emails are flooded with a new theory, (at least mine is) and the internet bombards us with information and offers. I believe you have to be wise these days and discern for yourselves what works. This is hard for people to do. That is where I come in, I teach people how to listen, really listen to their bodies, and mind. Together we create a healthy relationship with food, your thoughts and your core spiritual beliefs. Each and every person is a unique individual and has to be treated as such. There is no one right way to eat. 

I have a huge passion for healthy eating and maintaining a healthy lifestyle. I teach my clients that it is not only the food we eat, which is super important, but how we eat and our feelings about food that matters. We are striving for homeostasis which can only be achieved when our body, mind and spirit are all being fed.
