I'm sure you have heard the latest buzz on television and in health food stores about the benefits of detoxifying your body for weight loss, increased energy, better mood, clarity as well as to prevent or even heal certain ailments or diseases.
There are numerous products on the market that claim to do those very things which can cost quite a bit but is only used over a short period of time. Detoxing the body mind for a week or two once a year is healthy, however, gentle daily detox can help your body cleanse unwanted toxins every day. The greatest cleanse for your body is to start watching what you think, because there is a proven connection between your thoughts, emotion and physical health. Start to purify your thoughts as well as your body in order to bring yourself into a state of harmony and balance. We have become so health conscious over the last decade we may have forgotten to detox our thoughts once in a while too, because they have a tremendous impact on our well-being and our ability to overcome obstacles and challenges we meet along the way.
In terms of our physical body, Nutritionists suggest natural fiber which can be found in apples, pears, bananas, strawberries, celery and many more fresh fruits and vegetables that are a good source of fiber. Take your time and start making little changes. Substitute the chips for carrots and the pop for tomato juice and a celery stick and you will be on your way to a healthier body. For those of you who want more, try adding fresh squeezed lemon or lime juice to your water daily. It is both refreshing and energizing while giving your body that little extra help it needs to wash away preservatives, food additives, chemicals and pollution. By the end of the month you may even notice you might be a little lighter. Buildup of toxins is one of the most common causes of weight gain in our society.
