MAIN BENEFITS: Lose Weight • One of the primary reasons many people detox is to lose weight. When you cleanse and detox, your fat cells are better able to metabolize. You will likely find it easier to burn fat and lose weight once you’ve detoxified your body. Have More Energy • Chemicals and toxins stored in your body affect your energy levels and they slow down your metabolism. They can also interfere with sleep and place enormous strain on your immune system. Detoxing removes these chemicals from your body, thus your body is better able to function. You’ll feel more energetic, sleep better and fight off infections more effectively. Experience Mental Clarity • Many toxins create a foggy mind. Artificial sweeteners and sugar both tend to affect your thinking processes. When you detox and you cut sugar and artificial sweeteners from your diet, you’ll feel as if a fog has lifted. OTHER BENEFITS: Improved complexion, better breath, improved digestion, stronger immune system – fewer colds and illnesses, improved sense of well-being, better sleep and better stress management. SIDE EFFECTS: During the detoxification process, you may experience side effects of fatigue, malaise, aches and pains, emotional duress, acne, headaches, allergies, and symptoms of colds and flu. These negative side effects are part of the healing process and are sometimes called healing crises, which are caused by temporarily increased levels of toxins in the body due to elimination and cleansing. It is important to consult your physician before you start a detox plan. And remember to plan your detox so that it is done at a convenient time. You don’t want to shock your body, so begin to make gradual changes once you have made up your mind that it is time to spring clean your system. 10 TIPS to help your body detoxify: 1. Keep yourself well hydrated by drinking lots of water, juices and herbal tea. 2. Eat plenty of fiber, including brown rice and whole grains. 3.
