Can detoxing help? Can it cleanse your body and bring calmness to your life? After a period of stress!
Have you ever noticed that when you have a problem, more seem to turn up almost simultaneously; unexpected bills, rare illnesses, workloads increase, and sometimes we lose family members. At times like this, you want to hide in the hope that when you emerge everything has been sorted and settled.
Maybe you wished to be teleported to a paradise island, but that seems highly improbable. Giving you no choice but to face reality. Even if that is a distasteful prospect. But, the storms will pass, even your stress levels will start to reduce.
Adverse effects of stress
But, you may have noticed some adverse effects on your body, from this dark period of stress. You will have seen your skin looks lifeless and dull your energy levels have dropped. You feel like you get every infection going and your immune system feels like it is being attacked from every angle.
To improve your energy levels, boost your skins glow and reduce the chance of falling ill.
Why not follow a detoxing plan?
You can regain lost vital nutrients by following a detox diet. As covered in my previous post “Why do we need to detox?”
Detox products are no longer seen as just for vanity’s sake but also for legitimate health needs. Detox kits are widely available and are made of a selection of herbs and other organic ingredients with cleansing and detoxing products. So you don’t need to feel guilty about purchasing products to help revive your energy levels.
Enjoy a Regular drink?
If you are a regular drinker, then there are products aimed explicitly at detoxing traces of alcohol from your body. Once you have followed a detoxification diet, you should try to avoid alcohol as much as possible.
Not only does detoxification help to cleanse your system but it can also teach us about self-discipline.
A particular nutritionist, “who has an article published on the internet, said you should not wait until your body sends telltale signs (such as problems of digestion) before doing something about it.”
If you consume excessive amounts of alcohol, this can cause severe dysfunction of your internal organs, specifically the liver and colon. You may improve your health with completely detoxing alcohol from the system by following a dry period of not consuming alcohol. You can also follow a specific diet, like raw food, and try detox products that will help you to eliminate impurities.
Anyone can use these detoxing products, not just regular drinkers. Nutritionists also say that there are several causes of impurities, besides those from alcohol and cigarettes. Every day we encounter different kinds of pollutants that can harm our bodies. It can include processed food, noise, and stress.
That’s why it is essential to detox no matter how ‘healthy’ you think you are.
Can Detoxing and Cleansing Be The Key To Losing Weight
If you like me, who has had a weight problem, you have tried many diets. You lost plenty of weight over time but also gained it back and maybe a little bit extra.
Like me, you probably were looking for a quick fix. The magic formula that you would lose weight instantly, with no change in your lifestyle and it would keep you slim for the rest of your life.
No such magic formula exists. My turning point came when I realized that I needed help, not only to give me the correct information and the right tools which would help keep me on track. To be successful, you also need to acknowledge that you need help too.
First Step Is To Detox
As western diets tend to be high in products that can act as poisons to our bodies: –
- things like saturated fats,
- food additives
- and chemicals
So the first step in any successful weight loss program is to detox.
The detoxing process is about cleansing the body from harmful substances that can be in our bloodstream and tissues. This process helps to wean you off toxic substances and help to break your addiction to sugar, caffeine and other processed food that is part of western food.
Many detoxing products are available that can help you with the cleansing phase of your weight loss journey. It’s best to find one that is organic and natural. Make sure you read the labels carefully, choose ones that have vitamins, ionic trace minerals, and enzymes.
You may even consider having a colon cleanse. You can read about it in Detoxify Your Body With A Colon Cleanse.
Jump Starting Your Weight Loss Journey
Even though no magic bullet will help you instantly lose weight and keep it off, there are products available that can jump-start your weight loss. These often come in the form of meal replacement shakes.
There are three reasons why these shakes are helpful:
- The best shakes are natural; they are full of organic whey protein, vitamins, minerals, and enzymes. They help speed up the fat burning process and while reducing caloric intake.
- Easy to prepare which helps reduce the temptation of snacking while preparing meals.
- You are more likely to see immediate results. If, for example, you were to lose five pounds in five days, you are most likely to continue with your weight loss plan. Never underestimate the power of success!
How To Stay With the Program?
It can be emotionally satisfying when you see a quick weight loss. To keep the weight off, you will need to commit to changing your bad habits to good ones.
Make sure you have a regular exercise plan and a fantastic support group. Tracking your food with a food diary is a helpful tool.
