Eat Well and follow the 7 Day Detox Tips

fruit-and-veggiesThis 7 days detoxing strategy is designed to de-stress your body, support digestion, and keep you feeling lighter and more focused. Detoxing is often in the news but there is nothing “new” about eliminating toxins from our everyday life.

Traditional Medicine (http://www.who.int/medicines/areas/traditional/definitions/en/) has been promoting detoxing for thousands of years. Ajurveda  aka “the science of life”  is emphasising moderation, focusing on a balanced body. “Panchakarma” is Ayurveda’s primary detoxification treatment taking a holistic approach  treating both mind and body.

You can find examples of detoxing methods in many ancient cultures and in recent years numerous scientific studies are leading us to believe that fundamentally a diet based on fresh produce with meat and diary included sparingly, no use of refined sugar, caffeine alcohol and tobacco is the best way to support a healthy body

The 7 days Detox tips below are based on these scientific findings guiding you to a simple, not-extreme approach to detoxifying your body.

Foods to avoid: Gluten, dairy, caffeine, alcohol, added sugars, and meat. It’s not that any one of these foods in moderation is inherently “bad” but very often they tend to dominate everyday diets.

Focus on what you can eat: It’s easy to think, “there’s nothing I can eat!” but it’s more likely that you’ve built habits and “go to” foods that you are not even aware. Consume only liquids (green juices, non-dairy smoothies, herbal tea, filtered water) and raw fruits and veggies. Drink tons of filtered water throughout the day. For a detox shopping list have a look below.

Labels to look for: Organic, grass-fed, free-range, antibiotic-free, pasture-raised, hormone-free, gluten-,and dairy-free.

Think fresh NO packaged food: For the 7 days detox period make sure you do not eat anything pre-packed. Eat lots of raw fruits and veggies, preferably organic. The more the better.

The second brain: To improve your digestive system, take a good probiotic. There is over 100 trillion bacteria in your gut which needs replenishing.

This is NOT a “magic” solution: You cannot undo months or years years of poor eating. Use the 7 days detox as kick-start for new habits. After the 7 days, add slowly the food you have avoided and see how it makes you feel and remember what you discovered during the detox, and what did you learn about how not eating certain foods affects you.

Think Well and De-Stress

meditation reduce stressThe body’s response to stress is similar no matter what the cause. The short-term reaction is the “fight-or-flight” response, consisting of activation of the sympathetic nervous system and the release of adrenaline. Longer-term stress is causing an increase in the cortisol level. Cortisol has similar effects to adrenaline in the body, but remains in blood for a longer period of time therefore disturbing the body’s homoeostasis thus increasing the levels of toxins in the body.

Therefore reducing stress is a key part of any detox regime and these five simple yet effective tips from Harvard Health can help you do just that.

  • Stay positive: Laughter has been found to lower levels of stress hormones, reduce inflammation in the arteries, and increase “good” HDL cholesterol.
  • Meditate: This practice of inward-focused thought and deep breathing has been shown to reduce heart disease risk factors such as high blood pressure. Meditation’s close relatives, yoga and prayer, can also relax the mind and body.
  • Exercise: Every time you are physically active, whether you take a walk or play tennis, your body releases mood-boosting chemicals called endorphins. Exercising not only melts away stress, it also protects against heart disease by lowering your blood pressure, strengthening your heart muscle, and helping you maintain a healthy weight.
  • Unplug: It’s impossible to escape stress when it follows you everywhere. Cut the cord. Avoid emails and TV news. Take time each day — even if it’s for just 10 or 15 minutes — to escape from the world.
  • Find ways to take the edge off your stress: Simple things, like a warm bath, listening to music, or spending time on a favourite hobby, can give you a much-needed break from the stressors in your life.
