While healthy eating is our birthright, for many of us it seems like taking the plunge into eating a whole foods-based diet is the equivalent to traveling to some distant land. But it doesn’t have to be such a scary or foreign experience.
Have you heard of a “teatox”?
It is the new buzz word for getting healthy, ridding those unwanted toxins out of your body and shedding a few pounds in the process. A “teatox” is basically a tea that acts as a detox aid for your body. Ultra Slender Tea has a great organic, 100% natural detox that is worth trying if you are interested. Many people say it has helped them loose up to 10 pounds and completely clear their skin!
Let’s face it, most diets are too complicated and not-practical! Consumers need more safe, simple, realistic and pleasurable (yes!) transitions into healthy living and eating. Often, because “detox diets” remove all the sugary, fatty, chemical-laden, artificial stuff from the diet, they get called a detox or a cleanse.
Why is detoxification important?
When our bodies become “toxic,” it means that our natural means of ushering out metabolic waste from normal human metabolism, environmental pollution, and what has become known as the Standard North American Diet (or SAD diet – funny, right!) has exceeded the threshold for what the body’s innate detoxification system can tolerate on its own. With this toxic load, every system in the human body can become affected. From our head to our toes and everything in between, toxicity makes us sick!
When to know if you need a “Teatox” / proper detox cleanse?
Usually a constellation of complaints helps you determine whether or not you are toxic and to what extent you need to cleanse. Some examples of what might infer a toxic system are:
- Persistent headaches, muscle aches and muscle fatigue
- Eating a lot of swordfish, tuna, shark etc.
- Your exercising but have no results to show for it
- Several mercury fillings and dental amalgams
- Food allergies
- Stubborn weight loss
- Hormonal imbalances and consistent use of hormone replacement treatments such as birth control or creams like progesterone.
- Consistent use of ibuprofen or acetaminophen
- Skin abnormalities such as acne, rosacea or eczema
- A lifetime of consuming the SAD Diet
