How to Detoxify Naturally

Posted by on

Well, we've made it to the start of a new year and decade! Holiday celebrations have come to an end which means it’s a great time to start a detox (i.e. detoxification). 

 Key Benefits of Detoxification:

  • Increased physical, mental, and emotional energy
  • Improved nutrient absorption (e.g. vitamins, minerals, antioxidants)
  • Strengthened immunity
  • Improved quality of skin, hair, nails

During the holidays, you may (I know I have!) have indulged in or been exposed to any of the following, which, in excess, could be considered toxic

  • Sweets
  • Fats
  • Meat
  • Alcohol
  • Loud noise
  • Crowds
  • Tension
  • Family drama
  • Prolonged sitting
  • Traveling
  • Late nights

So I invite you to check in with yourself to see how you are feeling. Are you feeling energized, light, and calm? Or perhaps more sluggish, bloated, or irritated?

If the latter, you may very well be experiencing the effects of a toxic overload, which commonly results from holiday celebrations or simply from living a modern day life. 

Common Signs of Toxic Overload:

  • Headaches
  • Muscle aches
  • Joint pain
  • Fatigue
  • Abdominal bloating
  • Mood swings, irritability
  • Poor mental function
  • Allergies
  • Skin disorders

If any of these apply to you, then it's a great time to start supporting your body's natural detoxification (i.e. cleansing) processes

What is Detoxification? 

Detoxification is the process of removing or mitigating the toxic effects of a substance. By changing the properties of a toxic substance, detoxification also promotes the process of eliminating it from our bodies.

Holistically speaking, detoxification is a complete cleanse of the body, mind, and spirit

How to Begin a Natural Detox? 

One of the easier ways to do a detox is to start by supporting your major channels of elimination -- your lungs, kidneys, colon, and skin. With the support of detoxifying herbs as well as small changes in diet and lifestyle habits, you can begin to experience the benefits of a detox - most notably as an improvement in your mood and overall health.
