Detox For Life - The Healthy Living Guide

Bringing you a collection of health and wellness ideas.

Hey there, health-conscious friend!
You've stumbled upon our healthy living guide, and let me tell you, you're in for a treat (but not the sugary kind, of course).

Here we believe that kale and a good laugh can cure just about anything! I hope that brought at least a smile to your face.
Keep that smile, close your eyes and take a slow, deep breath...drop your shoulders as you exhale.

It feels good to take just a 10 second breather. In just that short time your body would have sent out signals
to lower your blood pressure and slow your heart rate. And that's what we're all about....promoting healthy living and wellness, so you're definitely in the right place.

Whether you're a seasoned gym rat or just dipping your toes into the world of wellness, we've got something for everyone. So sit back, relax,
and get ready to eat more kale (or at least learn about its health benefits). Let's do this!

"Why detox your life and why should I worry about a detoxification program or colon cleansing products or a liver cleanse?" - I hear this question fairly often...The truth is that although a healthy lifestyle is simple, it certainly isn't easy. By simple, I mean you make healthy food choices in moderate portion sizes, exercise regularly, rest and repeat. 

Simple huh? If it was easy, there wouldn't be a multi-billion dollar  weight-loss industry.

Detox your life begins with lifestyle changes to avoid exposure to external toxins, i.e. drinking pure water, eating organic food where possible, avoiding sources of air pollution and exposure to tobacco, and limiting consumption of alcohol, preservatives, caffeine, sugar and refined foods.

I have never found detox to be easy, even simple programs like cleaning up my workstation are a challenge. But the rewards and benefits are enormous.

A thorough cleanse can help you take control of your health, life and inner balance. You will think more clearly and from a health point of view reap the rewards of a more youthful existence. Having balance in your life is important for being content and living a fuller life.

By simple definition, to "Detox" is to eliminate, get rid of or cleanse from toxins.Many areas of our life could benefit from a cleansing and purifying because our lives are full of pollutants and toxins. They come in many forms and disguises. Even the air we breathe contains toxins.

It's a frightening thought, your body absorbs everything you drink, eat, and breathe. Therefore every cup of coffee, every breath of air, polluted or otherwise is pulled into your body and processed by your liver.

The most common culprits are toxins from alcohol, cigarette smoke, medicinal and recreational drugs, caffeine, heavy metals, exhaust fumes, pollution, pesticides, and preservatives in our food.

Our bodies have a built-in detoxification and cleansing system, a natural function of eliminating toxins through certain organs,the kidney, liver, intestines, lymph and blood. For many of us though our bodies are battling to eliminate the toxins as fast as we ingest them.

Our bodies become congested with toxic substances either through a short term over-exposure, bad lifestyle, diet, excessive use of alcohol and drugs.

Did you know that you have a natural detox and medicinal treasure box sitting on your spice rack? I'll fill you in on how Apple Cider Vinegar, Cayenne Pepper and Ginger can effectively add healthy years to your life.

Some of you may have become used to feeling sluggish and tired, bloated and gassy after meals. I used to blame it on bad digestion, eating too much or food intolerance. Many of these symptoms and others such as headaches, fog-brain, yeast infections and eczema are actually your body indicating that it's not removing waste and toxins efficiently.

An effective detox program can rejuvenate your diet and your life, for a healthier body, mind and home. Do you know what being healthy feels like?

Whatever you decide, be honest with yourself and make the most of the rest of your life.
