DAY 2: TOXINS & DETOX
Majority of cleanses and detox programs are loaded with sugars, creating an inflammatory response. Not to mention they almost always leave you feeling STARVED (believe me, I have tried them ALL). Because this is an authentic RESET, aimed to rebalance and rejuvenate your body, I am going to share my favorite detoxing tricks that don't involve going hungry for days on end.
WHAT ARE TOXINS?
It's hard to avoid toxins in everyday life—after all, they’re lurking in everything from unknown pesticides to the sunscreen you slather on your face at the beach. Becoming saturated with toxins can slow you down, make you gain weight, and will undoubtedly keep you from performing at your best.
You see the word “detox” everywhere. So let's cut to the chase, the goal of detoxification is to eliminate all the negative effects on the body from the things that cause inflammation.
I am talking everything from food, stress, lifestyle, the environment, industrial chemicals, pesticides, additives, secondary smoke, pollutants, and heavy metals. With all the toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis, you need to RESET and do some internal detoxing to keep your systems in pristine condition. Although, we wish our body would do this on its own - it doesn't. Hence why it's absolutely vital that you take control of your health by taking action and you committing to this SPRING RESET is a huge step in the right direction.
Now, let’s help our organs do their jobs by flushing unwanted toxins from our bodies. Your body will thank you!
SIGNS YOU NEED TO RESEt and detox your body
• Belly fat
• Skin Problems
• Food cravings
• Low energy
• Bad breath
• Mood swings
• Poor sleep
• Aches and pains
HOW TO GET YOUR DETOX ON:
SLEEP - Make your room dark with no electronics, take 1 TBSP Magnesium Calm powder and cool down your room when you go to sleep.
GET PROPERLY HYDRATED - Check out my blog post on hydration here.
POOP - Everybody asks me: what is normal? Just like everyone's body is different, everyone poops different!
EAT FAT - Don't be scared of healthy fats, you need to consume a LOT of the "good guys," like avocado, coconut oil, nuts and grass fed beef! This will help you feel satisfied and make the RESET so much easier!
GET MOVING - Exercise will stimulate your adrenal and lymphatic systems, both necessary to get the maximum benefits of detoxification.
INFARED SAUNA- find an amigo who has one, or a local gym, google it in your area, its worth it- sweat it out
ACTIVATED CHARCOAL- binds to toxins and draws them out of your body
MAGNESIUM- you and everyone else is deficient see the full reason why HERE
CHLOROPHYL- green things contain oxygen, this binds to the bad guys including toxic metals. (great for hangovers too)
GET OUTSIDE! Have you heard of grounding? GOOGLE IT :)
CONSTIPATION SLOWS DOWN EVERYTHING
Constipation is the enemy of a detoxing body! Make sure you are going at least once a day, AT LEAST! Hopefully more during this detox, message me for my secrets!
If you are having issues, here are a few ways to get things moving:
- Green powder
- Drink more water, my recommendation is half your body weigh in ounces!
- Drink 1 gallon of ionized water
- Add fermented foods like sauerkraut, kimchi or kombucha
- Magnesium Calm or MG capsules
