How, when and why to detox


We’ll be diving into the world of detoxing.


So when is the right time to detox?


Well, have you noticed how you’re more likely to get sick when the season is changing?


Between winter and spring, spring and summer, summer and fall, and fall and winter, your body naturally cleans house and prepares for the season to come.


These are also the perfect times to detox your body.


At other moments and when in tune with your body and its rhythms, you may suddenly get the desire to detox. It’s great to take some time out to re-boot your systems then, too. These times might include when you’re under the weather physically, but it’s ideal to begin detoxing before you get sick.


That way, you could actually prevent ill-health and feeling sick, and you’ll have more flexibility in terms of the detox activities you can perform because you won’t need to stay in bed!


Other times that are perfect for a detox? After too much indulgence! Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year are great examples of dates that may involve a little too much rich food and late nights.


However, we don’t recommend overindulging during these times more than you would if you weren’t going to detox afterward. This will burden your body and make the detoxing journey tougher.


If now doesn’t feel like the right time to detox, don’t worry.


Please just read along and use as much of the information as you like.
