Although our body constantly detoxifies itself naturally, our body can often use extra assistance as we are burdened with several toxins from the air we breathe, the food we eat, the water we drink, the beauty products we use on our hair and skin, and the state of constant stress a lot of us tend to be in. So how do you know you need to detox? Signs and symptoms to watch out for include: brain fog, fatigue, body odour, chemical sensitivities, bloating, flatulence, skin issues, acne, sleep issues, food cravings, headaches, constipation and diarrhoea.
By limiting exposure to these everyday toxins, you will likely notice an increase in your energy levels throughout the day. Depending on your level of toxicity you may notice some fatigue earlier on, but this is only temporary and soon enough you will notice improved and sustained energy. This elevation in energy levels makes sense, as when you are detoxing, you are cutting out inflammatory foods such as sugar, gluten and processed foods, and replacing them with fresh vegetables and fruits, which provides a natural energy boost without the resultant crash. Maximise detoxification by drinking plenty of water throughout the day. This habit will ensure that toxins are flushed from the body and will further boost energy levels.
Dr Cabot’s 15-Day Cleanse is a great way to ensure sufficient detoxification through eating healthy, delicious meals and having our three different cleanse powders daily. Doing a cleanse is a great way to improve overall health and achieve maximum vitality.
