The Pure Truth / The Importance of Detoxing the Right Way
The Importance of Detoxing the Right Way
By Estela Cockrell
When your body is filled with toxins, it’s not only affecting your internal system but your external system (your skin is your LARGEST organ!). Once your body is filled with toxins, it must work overtime to get rid of waste. This cycle causes symptoms of fatigue, brain fog, and low energy. Whether you’ve taken the plunge to do our Detox in a Box, a 14-day two-phase, medical-grade liver detox, or are wanting to start to eliminate trigger foods (and figuring out those triggers!) that cause stress on your body, detoxing the correct way is of utmost importance.
Here are some quick tips to get in gear and start DETOXING!
- Bottoms up!
Drink ½ of your body weight in fluid oz of alkaline water
Try water infusions for flavor and added antioxidants and electrolytes.
- Move your body!
Aim for 30 minutes/day. Rotate between: walking, yoga, Pilates,
resistance training (Barre Classes + weights) and other cardio that is energizing, not depleting.
- No sleep till Brooklyn (just kidding, those days are over!)
Be sure your phone is off and not emitting EMFs within 5 feet of your brain.
- I like my products, like I like my people, “non-toxic.”
Choose toxin-free skincare, makeup, body care, and home cleaning products. Use glass instead of BPA containing plastics.
- I’ve got 99 problems and nutraceuticals solved like 98 of them.
Multi-Vitamin with Anti-oxidants + methylation support.
Check out these foods to avoid when you decide to begin your detox:
So, your detox is over and, well, you can’t go back to the exact way you were eating before since it’ll be counterproductive. Reintroducing foods slowly is the key trick to getting back into a daily rhythm while still benefiting from your detox. Use these three steps for food reintroduction:
- Make a list and introduce one avoided food group every three days.
- When you find you have headaches, breakouts, gastrointestinal issues, bowel changes or mood changes, you may be sensitive to that food group.
- Proceed with caution in eating that food group going forward.
You made it! If you're asking, 'what's next?' then you've come to the right place.
This is a lifestyle change and a real decision. Nutraceuticals nourish your body and stop cravings.
