• How to Detoxify for Health and Weight Loss

        The start of a New Year is the perfect time to consider giving your body the gift of purification! While our bodies are designed to innately perform this function, we are constantly steeped in toxins of the modern world and our systems often cannot keep up. This leads to a host of health issues including stubborn excess bodyweight that does not budge despite our best efforts.

        From non-organic and pesticide-laden produce to high sugar soft drinks, the body’s detoxification organs have an enormous job. Other sources of toxicity to consider include char-grilled food, alcohol, caffeinated beverages, tap water, artificial sweeteners, plastics, air pollutants, occupational exposures, smoking, fertilizers, cleaning agents, molds, and the list goes on. We truly cannot live in our world without taxing our natural detoxifying systems.

        The organs under the greatest burden when it comes to purification and detoxification are the liver, kidneys, small and large intestines. What happens when these defenses become overwhelmed? As you might guess, this is not a good scenario. Inflammation becomes rampant which can lead to a host of issues and subsequent symptoms. In this state, you might feel like your head is foggy or congested, have digestive upset, unexplained joint aches and pains, insomnia, fatigue, and skin issues. The body tries to compensate by sequestering the toxins away, in the form of stubborn fat stores that, despite our best efforts, will not go away.

        If this sounds familiar, you could benefit from a targeted detoxification program. I highly recommend the Standard Process 21-Day Purification Program because it not only helps to clear out the toxins, but also supports and strengthens the organs of detoxification for long term benefit. This system uses a combination of dietary changes, targeted supplements, and nutritive whole food-based shakes to cleanse and nourish the body. A gradual reintroduction of a balanced healthy diet rounds out the program. This is all accomplished with a step-by-step, well laid out system that includes everything from recipes to shopping lists. You will not only get an immediate boost but will also learn strategies to reduce toxic exposures and support your body for optimal ongoing wellness.
