Detox for Renewed Energy
Updated: Jun 14, 2019
How toxic are you? Have you been feeling sluggish and lethargic? Do you have difficulty concentrating or staying focussed? Do you feel bloated or puffy, or suffer from indigestion? Is your skin feeling kind of lifeless, or you see eye bags and pimples coming up?
It may be time for a detox - kind of like a body overhaul! Detox, short for detoxification, is the removal of potentially toxic substances from the body. Why do we need to detox?
Like it or not, the environment today is toxic; so are the foods we eat, even the air we breathe and the water we drink! Everyday we are exposed to, and absorb toxins and chemicals that are potentially harmful to our well-being and our feeling of “wellness”. Whilst our bodies naturally detoxify, we need to lend a helping hand, not only by minding our lifestyle habits on a daily basis, but also, at least once in six months, go through a detox program to cleanse out our system. Kind of like clearing a clogged drain once in a while.
This will help get rid of those chemicals built up from years of pollution, which are making us feel tired, sluggish and endows us with a lack-lustre appearance.
There are various detox programs that you can explore - some work only with the bowels, others may cleanse the liver or the blood, and others may aid the kidneys or the skin in their functions. By combining these detox programs into a total health program, you can effectively restore your health to an optimal level and look younger in the process.
What we recommend for an easy yet effective 14-day detox is D-Drink, by FitLine. Formulated by top German scientists, it is an all-around solution with 5 Power Packs for the following functions:
Digestive: Broccoli and artichoke, with powerful anti-oxidant properties
Metabolism: Zinc, Selenium, Chromium and Molybdenum, which contribute to normal macronutrient metabolism and protection against oxidative stress
Chelation: Spirulina, chlorella, wild garlic and curcumin
Kidney: Stinging nettle, ginger and wild garlic
Liver: Milk thistle, artichoke, ginger, wild garlic and flavourless Choline
Detox: First Step Before Any Weight Loss Program
The first thing I do with my weight loss clients is to put them on the D Drink. This is important as most of the toxins in our body is stored in our fat cells. So if you are on a program to burn off that stored fat, bear in mind that the toxins will also be released into the body. And if you are not careful, your liver and kidney will be overloaded and overworked.
The good news is: with just a simple detox, you will also be losing "weight" in the form of impacted faecal waste. I had a client who lost more than 3 kilos in 3 days with no change in diet or lifestyle, but simply after 3 days of D Drink!
Well, whichever detox method you have chosen, that's fine. Key is: Do it!
