So after spending four weeks away in Nepal over the Christmas and New Year period I thought I had done well to avoid the over consumption of Christmas festivities and planed to kick off my New Year feeling revitalised and sugar free. Sadly I have discovered I am human after all and feeling significantly less than immortal; my digestive system is unhappy, my skin is dry, my belly is podgy, my back hurts and I feel like I could sleep for a week! This initially annoyed me considering the diligence I take at maintaining a healthy diet, lifestyle and regularly taking my nutritional extras. And then there was a light bulb moment…my body is screaming out for a detox.
I may have avoided the stress of Christmas; over eating sweet treats, alcohol, late nights, commitments to family and friends or long hours at work. But instead I was confronted with a variety of different stressors; it was freezing cold, the air was thick with smog, the water quality poor and I never really knew exactly what I was eating…despite all this just like Christmas, I love everything Nepal has to offer and can’t wait to return.
So why is there a need to detox, if I have returned to my ‘normal’ diet and life style? The human body is an amazing machine, regardless of how we treat it or the fuel we provide for it, it has this ability to keep going, but like the best of machines it will eventually start to break down.
The main organs responsible for the elimination of toxins from the body are the digestive system, lungs, skin, kidneys and of course the liver. When these organs are confronted with increased workload they become sluggish and will eventually need to rest. This is where a good detox program comes in. a good detox programme is a sensible and simple diet and lifestyle plan that allows the organs responsible for the elimination of toxin to rest and recover.
