Wellness Wednesday: The Amazing Benefits of Seasonal Detox

The Amazing Health Benefits of Seasonal Detox

Want to have more energy, sleep better, and lose weight? A seasonal detox can do all these and much more! From increased vitality and cellular rejuvenation to better overall health, its benefits are huge. In just a few days, you'll feel lighter and energized. Once your body gets rid of toxins, it will become more efficient at burning calories. This will lead to fat loss and rev up your metabolism. Seasonal detoxification is my number one secret to maintaining a healthy weight and dress size :-)

Is Seasonal Detox Really Necessary? 

Believe it or not, toxins are everywhere - in the food you eat, the air you breathe, the water you drink, and the clothes you wear. A person can go crazy trying to avoid all the chemicals in food, makeup, and household products. Over time, toxins accumulate in your system, causing diseases, fatigue, and premature aging. The only way to minimize their impact is to detox your body once every few months (sign up for my complimentary Healthy Is Sexy Detox Plan) and or make it a lifestyle choice. 

A seasonal detox plan can get you rid of skin problems, fatigue, indigestion, and sugar cravings. In the long run, it will strengthen your body's natural defense mechanisms and ward off diseases. You may also experience greater energy and stamina, improved mental focus, pain relief, and clearer skin. Regular detox can reduce inflammation, balance your hormones, and improve your health on all levels. 

How to Do a Seasonal Cleanse

This type of detox is based on fresh juices and seasonal produce. Fasting is optional, but highly recommended. The first step is to eliminate sugar and processed foods from your diet. White flour, white pasta, soft drinks, alcohol, margarine, and refined vegetable oils are off limits. If possible, try to avoid common allergens like gluten, lactose, and soy.

Your detox plan can include fruits, vegetables, flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, raw nuts, olive oil, spices, and herbs. Drink plenty of tea, green smoothies, and lemon water. Seek healthier substitutes for sugar, rice, bread, and chips. A seasonal detox can last anywhere from three days to one month. For best results, eat raw during your detox and keep a supply of Revive Detox on hand. Keep cooking to a minimum to preserve the vitamins and antioxidants in food. 

It's one of the best decisions I've ever made and I'm sure you'll agree with me once you get in the swing of things!
