Nutritional Detox Programs
The food you eat is at the core of health and wellness. Poor eating habits can result in the build-up of toxins in the body.
When you think of cleaning house, the focus is on getting rid of the garbage and grime that’s been piling up. A detoxification – or detox – diet works to accomplish virtually the same thing, ridding the body of the toxins that have built up via your diet, and opening the clogged organs that eliminate waste.
What is the Nutritional Detox Technique?
Detox diets are like hitting the reset button. They can vary in length and be specifically tailored to meet each individual’s needs, but typically include a period of fasting, followed by a particular diet that avoids harmful foods in order to replenish and rejuvenate the cells.
Detox programs aren’t just about what foods to avoid, but also about what foods are healthy to consume. A detox diet often consists of a raw, organic diet. Garlic, lemon and raw vegetables, for example, are all foods that promote detoxification.
People usually say they have more energy and better mental clarity after a nutritional detox program.
What Conditions Does It Treat?
A nutritional detox program, when done in a healthy, safe environment, can help treat a number of conditions. Detoxing removes the toxins from our body that can affect our metabolism and immune system and can lead to diseases such as cancer, heart disease and strokes.
Since toxins interfere with our body’s ability to burn fat, a nutritional detox program can help with weight loss by flushing the toxins from the body. Being overweight increases the chances of diabetes and heart disease, among other life-threatening conditions.
Because detoxing flushes the body of free radicals and metals, and helps increase nutrients such as antioxidants, a nutritional detox program can help slow the effects of aging and improve skin quality.
Since the body doesn’t function well when it’s clogged with toxins, a detox program can relieve issues such as joint pain, sleep problems and headaches, and even depression. A detox program can lead to increased energy, both physically and mentally.
