Summer detox

20131105_094604

This summer detox is extracted from Organic Empire website.

Your body is an amazing self regulating and rejuvenating system, that requires the right nutrients to function. If the diet is lacking in correct nutrition or is overloaded with the modern nutrient deficient diet it can make this phenomenal organism we call the human body, operationally impaired.  Its at this point that cells are not replaced so precisely – this is what we call ageing.

 Let’s take a quick snapshot of in fact how amazing you truly are……

  • Your skin renews itself every 21 days
  • Your bones repair themselves in 6 weeks
  • Your digestive tract replaces itself every 4 days
  • After 7 years every cell in your body has been replaced….. new year…new you…
Impressed??? You should be, I think you are pretty amazing too!  So it only seems fair that you do your part to support your body, that’s where a detox comes in.
Basically detoxing is the elimination toxins from your body, yes your body can do this quite efficiently without a formal detox, but when your system is comprimised or overloaded (ie the kind that happens around Christmas ;), impurities are not filtered properly and are then stored.
So lets get to it…. we have come up with a list of foods to avoid and foods to include….Its only 3 days and you can do anything for 3 days…
