Top 10 Reasons to Detox
We are detoxifying all day every day. If not, the very air we breath would kill us all in a minute. I know, “Haylie Sunshine” but how amazing is it that our bodies take such great care of us. Let’s feed this process.
It’s been a long winter, but good things are upon us; Spring is here, then Summer! The ice has melted outside; the daffodils have unfolded, those temperatures will begin to climb – but not before the natural annual tradition of “spring” cleaning is initiated. The time is now. But between reorganizing closets and clearing spider webs in the garage, isn’t it time you put some “me time” aside for a deep clean of your body? Let’s talk detox. Think of detoxing as a long over-due natural nourishment of your body; what you’ve been missing these winter months while you’ve been so bundled up inside.
Here are the top 10 reasons to nourish your body’s ability to detox.
#1: Increase Energy: On Your Marks, Get Set…
The more efficient your metabolism, the more you get the glorious end product of metabolism energy. The same pathways that get bogged down by toxins are the ones that convert food into energy.
#2: Toxins: Out with the Old
Toxins from pollutants, chemicals, preservatives, and pesticides, are stored in our bodies – in our tissues and cells – for years. They take their toll on our metabolism, slowing it down, causing inefficiency, and ultimately making it work improperly. A detox’s first aim is to clear away those toxins and jump-start your sluggish metabolism.
#3: Prevention: Strike First!
Toxins don’t just slow down our metabolism; they’re responsible for many chronic diseases. A focused detox assists our bodies in ridding those toxins that are linked to cancer, heart disease, and many more.
#4: Immune System: Put Up Your Guard
When our immune system isn’t at its A-game, we’re an open door for the cold and flu. A detox strengthens the immune system and gives our body a fighting chance against infection.
#5: Lose Weight: Turn Up the Heat
Detoxing flushes toxins in fat cells, speeds up the metabolism and ignites the burn.
#6: Slow Aging: Look Younger Longer
Toxins prematurely kill healthy cells, wrecking havoc on the skin’s ability to generate collagen and elastin, creating crepey skin. Detoxing increases absorption of antioxidants and vitamins that help the body fight premature aging.
#7: Improve Quality of Life: Press the Restart Button
Our bodies aren’t operating at their prime when they’re loaded down with toxins. Do you suffer from depression, memory loss, headaches, digestive problems, or insomnia? Detoxification can be a fresh start and the beginning of a new quality of life you haven’t experienced in quite some time.
#8: Give Your Skin a Glow: Shine Bright
I want you to feel as good on the outside, as you feel on the inside. Detoxing strengthens hair and nails, and will undeniably give you a natural, healthy glow by nurturing the issue that creates these elements in the body.
#9: Align Mind and Emotions: Let’s All Get on the Same Page
When our body is working on all eight cylinders, we can better face the world around us, grounded, secure and clear. You’ll make better decisions and see the world differently, and your feel-good hormones are produced by the same metabolic pathways that toxins can bog down.
#10: Bring Balance Back: Team Work
All of our body systems are designed to work together, but when they are overloaded with toxins, they become burdened, and we don’t have the performance body or health we desire. Detoxing brings back balance and helps all the systems of the body work in unison.
