For the most parts, our bodies are self-cleaning. Unlike your oven, you don’t need to click a setting to get your detox moving. As we eat and drink, our organs work in sync to eliminate toxins and purify the body. This detox process happens constantly, but at the same time, we are also taking in chemicals, pesticides, heavy metals, and other unhealthy pollutants. These toxins are not only dangerous but often cancerous. As we take in these toxins, they store in our tissues and cells.

This can cause many problems including:

  •         Bloating, gas, and constipation
  •         Headaches and body pains
  •         Fatigue and sluggishness
  •         Nausea and stomach issues (tummy fat)
  •         Skin issues, bad breath, and bags under the eyes
  •         Menstrual issues and certain chronic infections

Though not all detox diets are the same, a properly regimented detox plan can offer a ton of unique benefits. First, it gives your organs time to rest. During the detox process, they won’t need to work overtime but instead can focus on filtering blood and improving circulation.


As your body is acclimating itself to a healthier diet, it will also be refueling itself. By the end of your detox cleanse, you’ll feel like a new woman (or man.)
