Ring in the New Year with a Weight Loss and Detoxification Program
After the last few months of holiday festivities,
overindulgence in the form of food, alcohol, and stress can be at the forefront
of our minds. With the New Year upon us,
many people vow to change their lives and lose weight, drink less, and meditate
more. One avenue that most people do not
consider after a period of overindulgence is detoxification to rid the body
from the chemicals and impurities that accumulated over the holiday season.
Detoxification is defined as the metabolic process by which
toxins are changed into less toxic or more readily excretable substances. It can be compared to the “junk drawer” that
most people have in their home. Over
time, more items collect in the junk drawer until it cannot even be opened
anymore. Your body collects junk in the
same way with the food you eat, the water you drink, and the air you
breathe. This junk consists of
pesticides, pollutants, preservatives, heavy metals, chemicals and caffeine.
The liver, kidneys, gastrointestinal system, and lymphatic
system are all in charge of the handling and excreting of toxins from the
body. If these organs are overburdened,
they can become inefficient just like a clogged air filter might. Signs of toxicity include weight gain,
fatigue, poor digestion, difficulty sleeping, food cravings, mental fog, dark
circles under the eyes, moodiness, and low libido, just to name a few.
Many detoxification programs exist. Here are a few key steps to follow when
choosing the right program for you:
- Always check with a licensed healthcare
professional before you begin a detoxification program because people with
certain diseases like diabetes, need to be monitored especially well while
- Make sure that the program is made from food and
is free of preservatives, chemicals, and artificial sweeteners and ingredients.
- It is usually better to perform a detoxification
program that is gentler on your body, so choose one that lasts for more than a
day or two.
- Buddy up…When you complete a detoxification
program with a friend or family member it helps to stay focused and the results
are usually more significant.
After the completion of a detoxification program, most
people experience increased energy, improved health, weight reduction, improved
digestion, clearer thinking, and removal of food addictions. With all of these improvements the New Year
can definitely begin the start of a New You!
