Detox Programs, Do they Work? – Part 3

Welcome to the continuation of our 7 part series How to Detoxify Your Body.

Part 3
Think about eating…

Are you getting enough nutrition?  Realise that I didn’t say enough food, I said enough nutrition. That a great many people are getting too much food is very evident. Unsatisfied hunger is a signal that, despite eating, your body is still undernourished. It’s really a cry for help. So, answer the call and eat whole foods rich in essential proteins, carbohydrates, vitamins, minerals and micro-nutrients like antioxidants, phytonutrients and trace minerals.

Our bodies need proper nutrition to function properly at all levels, and this includes our ability to detoxify. Eating nutrient dense foods is important to nurture your body’s 100 trillion cells.

Avoid eating processed foods which almost always contain high levels of sugar, salt, fats, coloring, preservatives and other chemicals. Fresh whole food is best.

Add nutrient dense superfoods like acai berry, maqui berry supplements to your diet. These natural superfoods have high levels of antioxidants and phytonutrients, plus fiber to cleanse your colon. Other superfoods like spirulina (considered to be a whole food) , chlorella (which has the ability to remove heavy metal contamination from your body) and stabilized rice bran are a must to boost your intake of concentrated nutrition.

The other aspect is to avoid ingesting toxins. Organically grown food has been shown to be more nutritious  and is certified to be free of pesticides. So, if you can afford it, buy organic. If you’re more budget conscious, take up the example of America’s First Lady, Michelle Obama and plant your own organic vegetable garden. It’s very rewarding, you know the exact origin of the food, plus you can grow special varieties, not just the types usually grown commercially.
