First, a few questions.

Do you sometimes feel tired or sluggish, but you’re not sure why? How about periods of Foggy Brain (trouble thinking clearly)? Do you experience uncomfortable bloating? These are just a few of the signs that your body may be battling toxicities. A good detox program will start out with an assessment to help you understand what you’re dealing with, and whether or not detoxing is right for you.

That said, whether it’s a gift to yourself or to someone else—there is no gift like the gift of health. Getting your body on a healthy course is a big deal, however; and so it takes a commitment. So whatever program you might choose, whether it’s a workout routine or a nutritional health plan, it helps to thoroughly investigate your options and understand what it is you’re signing yourself or (someone else) up for.

What is Detoxing? How Does It Help?

Often, without even realizing it, people consume things that are not healthful, or that may actually be toxic, or once consumed, creates toxicity within the body. Additionally, we expose ourselves to things that are toxic such as certain products we put on our skin, and even the air that we breathe.

With the clear understanding that it is not a way to “fix” any and all ailments or problems that can occur within the body, detoxing is a process that literally cleanses parts of your body. By giving your body the healthful nutrients it needs along with powerful antioxidants, you can begin to eliminate the toxicities and chemical imbalances within.

Many people have diets that are highly acidic, due to the foods they consume as well as certain combinations of foods that are consumed. Our bodies function much better on a diet that is more alkaline in nature. “More alkaline” translates to organic leafy greens and other fresh veggies, organic fruits, whole grains, and organic raw nuts and berries.

Acidic diets and/or diets that cause difficult-to-process imbalances include meats of all sorts, but especially red meat and animals that are injected with hormones and other chemicals, non-organic processed foods of all kinds, many non-organic fruits and vegetables, processed sugars, syrups (especially high fructose corn syrup) and salts, breads, caffeinated beverages, and alcoholic beverages.

Why Detox 101 is a great way to get started

My Detox 101 course is an excellent way to ease into detoxing because you actually get to eat things, as opposed to juice cleanses or liquid diets which for many starting out, are simply too extreme to maintain. I will provide you with a complete plan from start to finish that’s loaded with delicious options for you to choose from. Also, you will be glad to know that you do not have to go through it alone. I will be there for you each day to offer support and answer any questions. I will also help you stay strong through the tough stages (there will be a few, but you can do it)!

Detox with a buddy

Personally, I think it’s really nice to have a buddy to detox alongside with, which is also why a detox program can be a really nice gift! Having said that, my suggestion is to explain the idea to your friend/partner before signing up to ensure there is an interest. Then once you get the commitment from him or her to join you in the program, you will both be on board and ready to go. And of course, if your friend decides not to partake, you still have me as your coach!

The rewards

Most people will experience a positive change in the way they feel when they complete Detox 101. Many people will claim that they have more energy and feel great, and it is certainly common to lose a few pounds. Beyond the immediate results, the Detox 101 course often encourages people to dig a little deeper, and take things to a more serious level—in other words, a lifestyle change. Not to worry; there are more courses just around the corner!
