A detox way of life is a healthy way of life. Detoxification has been practiced for centuries by people from all over the world. To detox the body means to cleanse it, nourish it from the inside out and resting. It is important to remove toxins from the body, then feed it with healthy nutrients. Our body is always working to dispel toxins from our different systems. These toxins build up due to bad food choices, caffeine, drugs, stress, alcohol and from our environment. Detoxification starts in your liver but your lungs, gut and kidneys play a huge part in the detoxification process. 

How do we know when it’s time for a detox?

Juice cleanse

Many people think if they do a cleanse once or twice a year that is all their body needs, but this is similar to binge dieting. You really want to adopt a more detox lifestyle if possible because we are always surrounded by toxins. You don’t have to detox everyday if you are too busy, but try to adopt this lifestyle 80% of the time and leave the bad stuff for the other 20%.

Below are signs you are ready for a detox
