The body is exposed to toxic chemicals every day through food, drink, skin care products, the environment, and household chemicals. Reducing your toxic load is a great step towards your wellness.
Detoxing gives your body a break from the toxic excess that modern life creates; it cleanses your body and makes you feel as if you’re bursting with energy and full of vitality (although maybe not so much in the early stages of your detox, especially if you live a rather toxic life).
Detoxing isn’t about deprivation or starving yourself. That will do nothing more than leave you feeling lethargic, cranky, and irritable. In fact, during a detox you need to focus on your body’s nutritional needs by feeding it more vitamins and minerals than usual.

1. Have a cup of warm water with the juice of half a lemon.
Squeeze it first thing in the morning, and your digestion will thank you.
