WHY DETOX IS IMPORTANT TO LOSE WEIGHT AND FIGHT DISEASE
Did you know your body has the capacity of healing itself?
Our divine and complex design is composed of trillions of regenerating cells. Our body is a self-healing organism, that’s what Well-Being is all about!
In order for our bodies to renew themselves, regenerate and combat disease, the right conditions need to be present.
TOXINS IN OUR WORLD
We live in a very toxic world. We are surrounded by toxins and we are exposed to pollutants in our environment on daily basis. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, the cleaning products we use and even the cosmetic products we use contain toxins.
TOXINS AND WEIGHT LOSS
Toxins prevent your body from healing itself and fight disease. They also prevent you from losing weight. Since most of the toxins are fat-soluble, the body stores them in the fat cells. Fat protects the vital organs, so when our toxicity levels increase, we produce more fat as a “Protective Mechanism”.
This is the reason for the rebound weight-gain and yo-yo dieting.
If you want long term results and achieve a healthy weight, you have to cleanse your body and nourish it with the proper nutrition simultaneously before losing weight.
CLEANSING YOUR BODY
Cleansing has been around for a long time. There are many different programs out there and it could be confusing and overwhelming. You have to be careful in choosing one for your needs. Make sure is natural and you pick one that does not deplete you from nutrients but instead replenishes you with appropriate nutrition while cleansing.
EAT REAL FOOD VS. PROCESSED FOOD
Get back to basics and eat more real food. Processed foods that come in containers are full of additives, chemical preservatives, endocrine disruptors, toxic metals, and other substances that are hazardous to your health.
Fruits and vegetables are high in antioxidants and help you combat free radicals and protect your body against disease and premature aging. That is why is recommended to consume nine to thirteen servings a day and to eat color variety, like the rainbow! Each color has its own healing properties when consumed.
Buy local and organic produce that is free of pesticides and chemicals when possible. Support the locavore movement or even grow your own produce by becoming an urban farmer with an aeroponic growing system.
The key is to EAT REAL AND CLEAN FOOD!
