As we go about our days we are bombarded with toxins that can be harmful to our health. Processed, unhealthy food, water, our environment, smoking, alcohol, lack of exercise and even our own bodies are culprits. If you find yourself feeling sluggish and fatigued, having difficulty losing weight, in a brain fog, suffering from indigestion and poor bowel movements, and have a dull complexion and acne, a detox might be just what your body is telling you it needs.
Our liver is one of the main organs that helps flush toxins from our body, but when it becomes overloaded the about symptoms, and even chronic disease can occur. Giving your liver a break is important in maintaining good health and ensuring your liver is functioning optimally.
I know some of you might have differing opinions of detox and whether it is good for you or not. But here is an excerpt written by Dr. Olinca Trejo ND from the 30 Day Whole Body Detox recipe and guide book, on this very subject.
Contrary to popular belief, detoxing is not all about deprivation and starvation – it is the opposite. Detoxing works by giving the body a break from our toxic excesses, loading our detox organs with all of the necessary nutrients (which are often lacking in the typical Western diet) to get rid of the ‘backed-up’ wastes, and encouraging more healthy habits that contribute to a balanced and healthier life. Detoxes can be one of the finest tools we have to re-boost, re-vitalize and re-balance our physical, mental, and emotional health.
The 30 Day Whole Body Detox Program
This is the second time I have participated in this program. Last year I did so and it provided me with such an amazing foundation for my nutrition. This year I am so grateful to be a coach for the program as well as a contributor, with a section in the guide book on the benefits of exercise during detox.
The program was created by Julie Boyer and is in it’s 6th edition. This edition offers information on taking a holistic approach to the detox, encouraging gratitude, self care and spirituality, exercise and movement, and features over 90 recipes and a section on juicing. You can also opt in to receive automated text messages to offer motivation and friendly reminders to aid in your success through the detoxification process.
If you are looking to boost your energy, restart your metabolism, strengthen your immune system, combat your dirty eating habits, and reconnect with yourself and align your mind, body and spirit then this program is right for you.

As with all lifestyle modification programs, we recommend that you talk to a knowledgeable healthcare provider prior to starting the detox program.
