Did you know that your body is always naturally detoxifying, to remove toxins and waste products from your body?

The human body does this through different organs:

  • Liver: filters toxins
  • Kidneys: urine
  • Lungs: exercise
  • Skin: sweat
  • Gut: bowel movements
  • Lymph: movement

Although this is a naturally ongoing process, there are several things that you can do to support your body’s detox pathways.  These are categorised into two main types of support: (1) Daily/weekly routines (2) Occasional cleanse programs.

Sharing below ten things to include:

  1. Drink 2 to 2.5 litres of water daily.
  2. Increase your intake of nutrient rich foods including fruits and cruciferous vegetables.
  3. Increase fibre in your diet.
  4. Include foods with prebiotics and probiotics.
  5. Decrease sugar and processed foods.
  6. Reduce alcohol intake.
  7. Movement, through either walking or exercise.
  8. Breathing exercises & yoga.
  9. Get good quality sleep.
  10. Reduce technology time, taking a break from your phone, laptop, etc.

Try to make small changes gradually so that you get used to sustaining them. I would suggest picking three changes to start and then building on that.

And the second way to support your body is by doing a Cleanse Program every three to four months. This then gives your body a break from heavy, hard to digest foods and increases your intake of nutritious foods. In my cleanse program, we also look at other aspects like lifestyle e.g. sleep, stress and mental wellbeing. After this short program, my clients see a reduction in inflammation, have better skin and bowel movements, feel happier and sleep better.

This is the perfect program if you feel like you have been eating more unhealthily than usual or if you would like a ‘reset’.

If you are new to this and making long term changes seems a little daunting, start with the cleanse program as you will be guided but still realise how feasible making changes can be.

This is what a client said after the cleanse:

“When I first contacted Sujata for help, I had sleep issues for a month. I could fall asleep easily but kept waking up in the middle of the night feeling hot on my back. I tried to take a relaxing bath before bed, read a book before sleeping, but none of these seemed to solve my problem.

Sujata suggested her cleanse program to help reduce my inflammation and reset my body. At first, I was a bit worried that I won’t be able to do the cleanse for 7 days, but there were so many difference recipes to choose from, plus they’re easy to make and tasty as well.  Sujata sent me guidance on her daily checklist to keep me stay on track.  By day 3 of the cleanse program, my sleep had improved, I no longer woke up in the middle of the night and slept through the night. I couldn’t tell you how happy and grateful I was. I couldn’t believe the cleanse had fixed my problem. If you are considering doing a cleanse, you should definitely try Sujata’s 7 days cleanse program, it’s easy to follow and very effective. I highly recommend this course to my friends and family.” GT

I hope you have learned something new, and I look forward to hearing about the difference these changes make.
