Surely you’ve heard about detox diets and you’d like to know how they benefit your body. They are purifying diets that help you remove toxins and clean out your body.

Detox plans are trendy nowadays, especially for corporate executives who need quick diets with all the necessary vitamins and which provide benefits such as fully cleansing the organs.

If this resonates with you and you feel the need to start a quick detox diet, keep reading. You’ll feel better and more lively after eliminating all the toxins from your body.

Toxic substances in your daily life

Every day, toxic substances enter your body which affect your metabolism and can cause a host of illnesses. Your body is exposed to foreign agents throughout the day, including pesticides, air pollution and additives in processed foods. But there are also harmful agents that are found inside your body like urea and carbon dioxide.

An excess of these substances can cause you to gain weight and have difficulty losing it. You may notice that your skin is looking more aged or damaged. If you have trouble sleeping or digesting food, it may also be due to these harmful substances.

Your body has processes to release these toxins. Organs like the liver, the skin, the kidneys, the lymphatic system and the digestive system play a cleansing role. However, because the level of these substances in your body is ever increasing, it can become overwhelmed and need help getting rid of them.

What is a detox diet?

detox diet is based on fruits and vegetables. Generally, it consists of consuming detox juices and smoothies along with liquids (herbal teas and water).

A detox diet also includes other foods like oats, nuts, especially almonds, peanuts and walnuts, and green vegetables like kale, broccoli and spinach. It is also important to consume whole grains and legumes.

A detox diet can last between one and seven days. During this time you must not consume meats, fish, milk, coffee, refined sugar or alcohol, nor any processed products.

Juices in a detox diet

If you don’t know how to mix and prepare detox juices, here are a few ideas.

There are many different recipes for smoothies. Green smoothies are highly recommended, like one with celery, apple, spinach and the juice of half a lemon. It is important that the smoothies contain more vegetables than fruits, because they are more detoxifying and help balance blood sugar levels.

Smoothies are easy to make at home, but if you don’t have time to make them, there are a wide variety of juices and shakes on the market that you can take anywhere with you to easily cleanse your body and mind with zero effort.

At SHA Wellness Clinic, we have a Detox Program that combines natural therapies, physical exercise and a cleansing diet to help you achieve better vitality and physical and mental well-being.
