Detox: Detoxification or detox for short is the physiological removal of toxic substances from a living organism.
For a while now Detoxing has been gaining in popularity. When people are starting to feel their body's vitality lagging or they want to drop some quick weight the go-to is a detox. The thought being that putting the body through a cleanse will take you back to your original ultimate health state. This is partially true.
While a detox has a powerful effect in cleansing and releasing toxins, it should be viewed as a starting point to better health.
It's vitally important that once a detox has ended that a second phase of holistic lifestyle be pursued. If not, toxins will return as well as the symptoms of poor health. So accompany every detox with a follow up plan to eliminate the toxin culprits and add nutrient rich healing foods as well as disposing of enviromental toxins.
The best way to see lasting results from detoxing is not to keep the focus on the length of the detox, but beyond. De-tox for life!
Here is a list of follow up detox lifestyle changes:
Read up on your specific area of health concern to identify what foods could be the culprits and contributors. This includes inflammatory promoting foods. Go through your kitchen pantry and refridgerator and get rid of them.
Stock up on replacements for the toxic foods you eliminated, that promote healing in your target area. Make sure they are non-GMO, certified organic, cultivated from organic certified seeds in organic soil.
Create or find a month's worth of meal plans composed of nutrient rich foods to immediately start your new de-toxed life! (A Health Coach can provide you with specifically targeted plans for your health goals.)
Have a Health or Wellness Coaching plan in place to begin immediately following the end of your detox. There is no better time to initiate a program of lifestyle change than when your body is cleansed. It's like a clean pallette to create a new healthy way of life! A Health and Wellness Coach can help lay out a streamlined plan to identify toxic inputs and develop a lifestyle free of toxins. You will find encouragement, direction and accountability. A Coach will also help you work through the hard spots in changing a lifetime of toxic habits in eating and living. People with a Coach have 80% greater success rate of changing lifestyle!
Consider all the areas of your life that toxins affect your health and well-being: food, drink, enviromental, cleaning, cosmetics and clutter, emotional, relational, mental and spiritual.
