Detox to double your days!

Detoxification a.k.a. detox means to cleanse the body of particular substances, typically alcohol, sugar, or caffeine. There are 300,000 new toxins/impurities threatening the body each year making it more important to infuse detoxification into the way we live. Scientists are reporting that 6,000 new toxins are being added to the Chemical Society’s Chemical Abstract weekly. These toxins are causing our bodies to become acidic and in an acidic environment disease grows and spreads. Some toxins are obvious and some are hidden. To remove such toxins we need to detox our body regularly. Detoxing can occur daily and you can follow deeper level programs as long as 28 days.

To detoxify your body you can exercise and drink lots of water. If you are in the Detroit, Michigan area you can visit my friend Monica at Go smoothies http://www.gosmoothies.com/. 110 Clifford (48201). My picks for the top beverages on their menu are listed below. We are still in the 1 st month of the new year and it is not too late to resolve to juice and smoothie more in you own kitchen!  Juicing and drinking plant or fruit smoothies is a lifestyle approach that supports a built-in detoxing way of life.

Eat Like a Rainbow

How many colors in the rainbow were represented in my last meal? If your answer is two or less, let’s hope that one of the colors was green. If not, check back often for options for getting the rainbow effect on your plate and in your body. And remember, the rainbow is a symbol of hope and promise. The opposite is despair and death.
