We are bombarded with toxins in our everyday life. In the US there are 80,000 chemicals that are registered for use. 800,000,000 pounds of herbicides are used per year. 167 industrial chemicals are found in adults with no employment related to exposure. Even our skin care regimen includes toxins. We can do our best to minimize our exposure by eating whole foods, organic foods, using organic skincare. However we are still exposed to toxins throughout our day. If we have an excess buildup of toxins it can inhibit our bodies natural ability to detoxify these toxins. So should you complete a detox program? The answer is probably yes!
A build up of toxins in your body can lead to symptoms of
- Difficulty sleeping
- Abdominal pain
- Food cravings and weight gain
- Brain fog
- Skin issues
- Joint discomfort
There are many different ways to detox. I will sometimes complete an extended water fast. One detox that I like to do one to two times a year is Standard Process Detox Balance Program. Their detox is a whole food-base nutrition that helps support toxin removal through a 28 day or 10 day detox.
It is a three phase process that unlocks fat soluble toxins and makes them water soluble so that it is easier for your body to remove. The shakes are made from whole food-based nutrition and supply your body with key nutrients and phytonutrients that support each phase of the detox
During phase 1 you will unlock the fat soluble toxins and transform them into a water-soluble form.
Phase 2 will be to neutralize the highly toxic substances that are produced during phase 1. They’ll be converted into non-toxic molecules and become even more water-soluble
Phase 3 will eliminate the water-soluble toxins out of the cells and the body will eliminate them.
With this program you will drink one, two or three Standard Process Detox Balance Shakes per day. You’ll get a list of meals with easy recipes and tips to follow throughout the program.
During the detox you’ll eat healthy vegetables, fruits, And lean meats in addition to your daily shakes. You will get a shopping list of approved vegetables, fruits, lean meats, and fats that you can use throughout the detox.
The best part is you’ll get to complete the detox with me! I’ll create a private Facebook group that everyone that is completing the detox will be a part of. You will get daily accountability, you can reach out with any questions during the detox phase, and we’ll go through recipes and different delicious easy meal options.
We will start in February so I’ll be ordering the kits at the end of the week. Reach out today to join in and order your kit! Getting healthy is better together!
