How we come about the desire for detox is really unique to the individual. Weight loss and bloat reduction is a goal for some, whereas a particular symptom or experience leads another to detox for answers.
What I’ve come to understand and experience is that we all benefit from a subtle daily detox — and the reason behind that is the perpetual state of toxicity we live in. If you look around, so much of what we see is violence and upset. What we may hear is harsh and loud. From the air we breathe to products we put on our bodies, from the foods we eat to the company we surround ourself with.
Now that I’ve made it sound like we live in a terrible world, let me share what I see about our planet. There is beauty all around us. From conversations we have, to what we put in and on our bodies, from the bounty of food available to us, we all have the ability to connect with nature and with each other, to fulfill upon the mission of loving and serving. BUT, we can’t do that from an empty bucket.
Detox is also what you make of it. For some it’s the subtle daily detox of the Nutrition Response Testing program we have them on. For others it might look like a liver cleanse, a gallbladder flush, or a charcoal mask. Another may choose ionic foot bath, sauna, coffee enemas, or castor oil packs to get their detox experience going. With our work we get to experience that daily and lean into the nudge the body gives us when it needs or wants more.
One of my favorite gentle cleanses is the 21-Day Purification Program from Standard Process. It’s not a starvation diet. It’s very much doable. It pairs high-quality supplementation with a very clean, nourishing food protocol. And you will see and feel the results.
In this video, I walk you through the entire program in detail, and share some detox tips, including:
- What foods to avoid during a detox
