MY DETOX EXPERIENCES
Modern day society glorifies fake processed nutrient-void foods filled with pesticides, artificial colours & flavours, MSG, trans fats, sulphites, GMOs, refined sugar, hormones & anti-biotics, and parasites. These food-like products are marketed to us from every angle- in commercials, magazines, on billboards. Our store shelves are stocked with conventional body care products that contain toxic ingredients like artificial fragrances, dyes, parabens, triclosan, and even formaldehyde. Even if you live a #lowtox life today, odds are you didn't in the past (guilty!), and are likely still be exposed to everyday pollutants (like car exhaust fumes, smokers on the side walk, or chlorine in the shower at the gym). This blog section is dedicated to getting rid of the baddies that enter our bodies and wreak havoc on our health, as they build up over time.
A big warning to anyone interested in embarking on a detox protocol: get informed, be realistic, and be smart. I am NOT a doctor, nor do I play one online. These protocols and experiences are all ones I have devised for my Body, based on research I have done over the years paired with a deep sense of Self and a strong trust in my own intuition/ my body's wisdom. Detoxing can be extremely taxing on the body, and if you don't have sufficient life force (strength, chi, adrenal strength, whatever you want to call it) you may do more damage than good (seriously).
Although I am the biggest advocate for trusting your intuition, you should also know your limitations, and seek guidance of a well-intentioned practitioner. That being said: never let anyone have the final say when it comes to your body, and your health. Everyone on your health care team (be it a conventional MD, a naturopath, an HRHP, a physio, or a blog like this one) are tools to help YOU decide what is right for YOUR body. You should never blindly follow anyone's advice if it doesn't feel right. Seek advice and guidance, but trust yourself, trust your body, and take responsibility for how you feel.
