Do Detoxes Really Work And How You Can Adopt A Healthy Approach

Your system needs a cleansing from time to time. When are you getting yours? 

The food we eat, the products we use, the items we employ in everyday life and everything that is part of our lifestyle contributes its own fair share of toxins and things the body may not be able to process. 

A cleansing of the body in some form is needed so that any unrequired materials are eliminated to help it function optimally and work to its best capacity. 

What is a detox? 

Considered as a dietary intervention that one needs to take from time to time in order to ensure the body functions well, this is a healthy pattern. During this period of good eating, everything that goes into the diet is regulated. The food, the minerals, the vitamins, the fluids. No excessive starch or refined products or anything that would be heavy on the intestine is consumed. 

What are the benefits of this cleansing? 

During this period of abstinence from foods of various kinds, anything that could prove to be heavy or harmful to the system is avoided. There are various benefits of this process. 

These are: 

  • The system is pumped with vitamins and minerals and healthy components
  • The liver is allowed to rest as a load of toxins on it is reduced
  • Removal of toxins from the body through urine and sweat is facilitated
  • Essential nutrients are provided through the consumption of simple foods

While trying to lose weight, is a detox diet helpful? 

Yes, say the experts at My Vital Health Solutions. During weight loss, you are put into starvation mode and thus, the fatty tissue is burned. Since most of the toxins from the food we eat are stored in the fatty tissue, the breakdown of the tissue could cause these toxins to be free in the blood and these could cause disease. Thus during weight loss, it is wise to follow a detox diet. 

What does My Vital Health Solutions have to offer? 

A naturopathy clinic that aims to help people better their life choices when it comes to eating habits or lifestyle, we focus on your ability to correct any issues. The solution lies within yourself and instead of an overnight solution, a detailed approach is resorted to in order to first identify what the problem is and then take steps to correct it. 

At My Vital Health Solutions, Naturopath Domenic Pisanelli will guide you with your eating habits and diet patterns if you opt for a detox. Crash diets and one-day therapies confuse the body as to what is going on. A slow, but steady pattern is needed to be followed in order to achieve efficient results. 

When are you planning to go in for a healthy diet? 

The experts can help you with this. Reach out and after a consultation, we will detail the approach you should take. Let’s choose healthy!
