What is A Detox?
Your body is always on call and even when you take a break, your body doesn’t. Detox is a good way to give the digestive system a break, as it repairs, cleanses and rejuvenates the body system also creating the required focus for a healthier living.

During your Detox
The best policy is eating no food during the detox process. This also includes chewing of anything. This gives the digestive system the required rest. You should try as much as possible to take all the fluids you can get to replace essential minerals and prevent body shock. People are expected to clear their bodies of every blockages and buildups on a mental, physical and emotional level during detox. This emotional clearing and awakening may sometimes be negative for some people but do not be influenced by the reaction of other people. Submit to your emotions and let them take control, this is one major benefit of detox. Make sure to get lots of rest before your detox. Daily exercise, yoga, meditation, swimming, walking, and relaxation also have a major role to play in release of toxins and weight loss. You can also administer colonics by yourself, this is very much advised. You may choose to stay somewhere else after doing your detox, provided that you come twice a day to get your supplements and fluids for the day at the supposed time.
Even with how critical detox is, solids should be reintroduced into your system during this time. Be patient and stay conscious, it will surprise you to find out that the first few bites are not as good as earlier imagined. Many people also get very anxious. Keep a positive spirit and keep your head clear, this is a period of self-discovery and reflection. Your body’s sensitivity level will rise higher than it has ever been, so this is the best time to connect with your body to recognize what suits it and what doesn’t.
