Boosted Energy And 8 Other Benefits Of A Detox

Boosted Energy And 8 Other Benefits Of A Detox

This week's blog contains 8 benefits of a detox. Over the past month, I have received many messages with enquiries about how to do a detox and/or cleanse. Many are keen but don't know where to start. This blog will give you what you need to get started with your cleanse or detox.

I have, therefore, decided to focus on detox for the rest of this month to help you navigate this minefield and find a detox that works for you.

The Mini Detox

Starting with a mini detox is wise so you can not only have a great result but also limit the 'healing crisis' that can occur when you go too hard or too fast. I'm not a fan of creating a healing crisis, which means you will endure unnecessary suffering. By doing a mini detox, you focus on cleansing and gifting your mind and body rest to scale up your health.

Now is the time of year to think about detoxing or cleansing, as the significant seasons are changing. For those who celebrated Easter, this coincides with maybe a little too much chocolate, too, so it's a perfect time to cleanse.

8 Benefits Of A Detox and Cleanse 

1. A Detox Helps Reset Your Eating Habits

A detox/cleanse can be a reset button for unhealthy eating habits. By eliminating processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and alcohol, individuals can break the cycle of cravings and dependence on these substances.

2. Your Digestion Will Improve

Our Rejuv detoxes/cleanses focus on whole, nutrient-dense foods such as fruits, vegetables, and small wild fish, which promote better digestion (if you have an allergy, we can replace the fish as needed). Increased fibre intake can support regular bowel movements and alleviate bloating and constipation.

3. Doing A Cleanse or Detox Will Boost Energy Levels

By cutting out processed foods and focusing on nutrient-rich foods, individuals experience increased energy levels and improved vitality.

Stable blood sugar levels from whole foods can prevent energy crashes and fatigue.

4. Detoxing Supports Weight Loss

As a natural side effect of eliminating high-calorie, low-nutrient foods and rich foods, clients lose unwanted body fat.

5. Enhanced Mental Clarity

Eliminating processed foods, sugar, caffeine, and alcohol from the diet can improve mental clarity and focus. Nutrient-dense foods provide essential vitamins and minerals that support cognitive function and overall brain health.

6. Increased Hydration

Many detoxes/cleanses encourage increased water intake, which is essential for overall health and wellbeing. Adequate hydration supports proper digestion, nutrient absorption, detoxification, and skin health.

This is why we offer our free Wellness and Detox Water recipes to support your cleanse and detox protocol.

7. Cleanse & Detox To Reduce Inflammation

Our detox focus on anti-inflammatory foods, such as fruits, vegetables, healthy fats, and spices, which can help reduce inflammation.

Chronic inflammation is linked to various health issues, including heart disease, diabetes, and autoimmune conditions.

8. Support Detoxification

While the body has its natural detoxification processes, our cleanses support these processes by promoting liver function, enhancing kidney function, and aiding in eliminating toxins and waste products.


Detox Foods

Regardless of where you are in the world, adding more plants and consuming less animal protein in your diet helps you cleanse and detox. Abstaining from alcohol for a month is also great, and many feel so great they continue abstaining for longer.

Eating less animal protein gives your body extra energy to clean up your detox pathways. I'm not a vegan, but on our Rejuv Wellness Retreats and during our detoxes, a vegan or pesca-vegan combination works the best based on my 25 years of research, but that said if you're allergic we always change fish to organic 2 legged animals such as chicken or turkey. 


A Time-Efficient Detox

Due to time constraints, I encourage many of my clients to choose one of our Rejuv Packs based on their goals. Depending on your schedule, the one month detox protocol can be broken up, for example, two or three weeks before an event and one week after, but four weeks is ideal.

Also, knowing you have a week or two of post-holiday detox left at home, you can relax more on your holiday. It allows you to eat, drink, and be merry while enjoying time with friends and family.  

3 Packs to Support Your Mini Detox

To do a mini detox, I suggest choosing from one of these three packs:

  1. The Metabolism Reset Pack to reduce body fat and cellulite
  2. The Detox Pack provides an overall detox and cleanse to feel lean and strong in mind and body.
  3. The Gut Healing Pack is for when your digestive system needs some love, and you want to remove belly bloat.

    Easy Nutritional Wellness Detox Plans

    Our packs all have a complete nutritional wellness plan to support your Seven Pillars of Wellness. We've made each one easy and delicious so you can incorporate them into your busy life. 

    Some of my clients also take their packs on holidays and use this time to chill and cleanse as they relax by the sea, a lake, a mountain, the countryside or a forest, away from busy everyday life. Complete 1-2 weeks of this protocol, depending on what your schedule allows.

    The Vegan Monday Detoxification Hack

    I'm not vegan. After healing my thyroid many years ago, I need fish in my diet to feel strong, but I love to add more vegan recipes into my diet and reduce dairy, sugar, gluten, meat and alcohol when I do a cleanse.

    I encourage my clients to do 'Vegan Mondays' as a lifestyle hack. Going vegan after the weekend gives your body a chance to cleanse and heal if you have a few rich foods.

    Detox Recipes

    We have many recipes on our blog, along with the protocols of each pack. You can browse all our recipes to add more variety to your diet and kick-start a cleanse.

    To get you moving, you could embrace intermittent fasting and choose a green juice for breakfast and a yummy soupstir-fried voodles, or superfood salad for lunch or dinner.
