The Ultimate Heavy Metal Detox & Weight Loss Soup

The Ultimate Heavy Metal Detox & Weight Loss Soup

One of the easiest and best ways to embrace a cleanse is with soup. With all of our Rejuv packs we use food as medicine combined with our whole food plant based supplements to support the body at a functional level.

Living in the 21st century we are all bombarded with toxins and food is not enough when doing a cleanse, particularly that it is often the toxic food and drinks we consumed that created this toxic exposure in the first place.

Gut Cleanse & Full Worm Moon

I’m currently fine tuning my protocols for the Rejuv Wellness Dubai retreat starting next week. We combine our Gut Healing with a Heavy Metal Detox as for they go hand in hand. Plus with the Full Worm Moon coming on the 25th of March now is the time to be thinking of doing a Gut Cleanse.

We always cycle a Gut Cleanse with a full moon due to the increased serotonin and decreased melatonin creating the perfect environment for a thorough parasite cleanse.

If you are serious about your health and wellbeing, consider joining us on the next Rejuv Wellness Retreat in Mexico, from June 1-8, 2024.

The Benefits of Soup All Year Round

I love soup all year round, and I have them cool and warm as snacks or meals as they are packed full of vitamins, minerals, fibre, healthy fats and protein.

I often choose soup for dinner because it is easy on your gut as it is pre-digested in a liquid form, bombarding your body with goodness, therefore, helping you wake up feeling refreshed in the mornings.

Detox Soup for Weight Loss

Cleansing soups can be fantastic to help stimulate and promote weight loss through multiple pathways, as they improve liver and gallbladder function, reduce inflammation, support gut health and help shift goodness into its cells and toxins out. Not only do they support detox they also help reduce body fat and strengthen your metabolism and immune system.

The Quiz That Revealed My Weakness

I do this twice a year to check in with myself, where I am slipping etc. I also revisited my Rejuv Wellness Quiz, which showed that my top 3 pillars that need some love are: Sleep, Body Balance & Mindfulness

So I’ve set the alarm to help me go to bed earlier and booked a massage and facial to improve my body balance and self-care. I have also reinforced my morning ritual of mindfulness and prayer instead of jumping on emails and not taking time to connect with myself each day.

The Rejuv Wellness Quiz will help make this process bespoke to you. Take the quiz and choose three habits to start and three to stop in your life over the next three weeks. 

Maybe you should stop drinking wine and start mixing and drinking 2-3L of my Rejuv Wellness Water daily. Maybe you ned to stop negative self-talk and swap it for gratitude and self-encouragement. Consider having fewer heavy meals for dinner in exchange for a healthy soup. It doesn’t have to be complicated, just three simple things to add and remove to improve your health. 

I trust you love this soup recipe, and as mentioned, take our Free Wellness Quiz, to asses your wellness and what needs to be tweaked. The Wellness Profile you get will help you identify bad habits to stop and which habits you need that will move you closer to the best version of yourself – because you deserve to live a life you love!
