Undoubtedly, the Christmas and New Year holiday period can be one of the most indulgent times of the year. While celebrating with friends and family we often focus on enjoyment and throw caution to the wind. That means, forgetting about what’s good for our bodies and consuming way too much unhealthy food and alcohol. Don’t worry, we’re all guilty of this bad habit, but now that 2017 is here, it’s time to get things back on track. A post-holiday detox can be a great way to cleanse your body and make a fresh and healthy start to the new year. Making sure it’s a natural detox that’ll increase your wellbeing and not one that’ll deprive you of sustenance is, of course, essential. So, if you’re going to detox, here’s how to do it right.
What is Detox?
Detoxing is the process of cleansing the body to promote better health, particularly through the use of lifestyle changes. Although there are a lot of different methods and ways to go about this, the aim is always to flush bad toxins from the body in order to help your natural systems operate with the most efficiency. The term toxin can refer to any substance that can be poisonous or cause negative health effects to the body. Designed to purify the body, the best detoxes are natural and help to enhance the body’s natural processes of eliminating toxins and waste. Typically, detoxes involve abstaining from certain harmful things and introducing healthier options that optimize body processes.
