The New Year is quickly approaching and the holidays pose a very real threat in sabotaging our health! There’s no better way to bring in 2016 than to “reset your life” with a ten-day detox.
Over time, the buildup of toxins from the environment and lifestyle choices can compromise the way our bodies work and ultimately impact our health. While many people are familiar with the idea of detoxification, there is a great deal of confusion about how to do it safely. For example, trendy water or juice fasting may cause muscle wasting and an increased feeling of fatigue. In order to detoxify properly, the body needs macronutrients such as quality protein and carbohydrates, plus specific micronutrients (e.g. vitamins and minerals) that provide targeted nutritional support.
At Rejuvena, we recommend a ten-day detox program that enhances the body’s natural metabolic detoxification process while providing adequate fuel for both cleansing and other daily activities, supporting energy metabolism and overall well being. In addition, our detox is a great way to “kick start” weight loss, if that is also a goal.
Who benefits from doing a detox you ask? Here are five signs to look for:
- Lack of energy and vitality
If you wake up and feel sort of “blah”, this may be a sign that it’s a good time to detoxify. Symptoms like brain fog, fatigue, overall achiness, digestive problems, headaches, skin rashes, and allergies – just to name a few – are indicators that you may benefit from a detox.
- You struggle to lose weight and maintain goal weight
The foods we’re eating may be triggering spikes in insulin levels and inflammation, which causes us to store abdominal fat and prevents us from feeling full. No wonder it’s such a challenge!
- You crave sugar and carbs and seemingly have no control over these cravings – it’s known as food addiction
Sugar and flour are like drugs that are biologically addictive. In fact, sugar is eight times more addictive than cocaine.
- You make poor lifestyle choices
So many of us suffer from lack of sleep, lack of exercise, overconsumption of processed foods, and way too much stress. You can reset your life by following a simple and delicious meal plan, devoid of toxins (including sugar, flour, caffeine, and alcohol).
- You’ve never detoxed before
Even if you think you are healthy and feel good, you may not realize that your normal state is not your optimal state. Think of it as a tune-up to supercharge your health.
