It’s spring! The time of year has come when we clean the closets, cupboards and cobwebs, so how about cleaning the colon as well?
Spring is a great time of year to detox. In actuality a detox cleans out more than the colon; it can purify the blood, the liver, the kidneys, flushing out all the toxins the body stores up over the winter.
So what exactly is a detox? Simply, it is a slight change in dietary habits, over the course of a chosen period of time, usually around ten days or two weeks, to rid the body of toxins and build-up caused by dietary habits.
There are many benefits of doing a detox. They include the following:
– Increased energy
– Strengthened immune system
– Healthier skin
– Reduced cravings for sugar, salt, high glycemic carbohydrates, alcohol, junk foods, nicotine, etc.
– Eliminates toxins from your body
There are some simple detox tips one can take into their home. Removing coffee from the diet is one of them, increasing fruit and vegetable consumption, eating lean protein with every meal and drinking lots of water, 8 glasses a day.
