Okay, admit it. You drank too much wine, ate too many sweets, and allowed that brother-in-law to tug at your last nerve. In other words, the holidays are nearly over and youve overindulged. Dont worry Im right there with you.
The reality is it can be very difficult to maintain healthy eating habits and a cheery disposition when continually faced with seasonal delicacies and family turmoil. Fortunately, committing to a detox program during the month of January is one resolution you can keep.
In case you arent familiar with detoxing, its a great way to gradually cleanse your body of its harmful accumulated toxins (physical as well as emotional) and get you back on track. You see, detoxification is one of your livers most important and vital functions. And it has a myriad of benefits, including:
- eliminating toxins from your body;
- cleansing and invigorating your cells and tissues;
- improving your ability to lose weight and gain appetite control;
- promoting radiant skin and lustrous hair;
- protecting your nervous system and brain from unmetabolized toxins;
- reducing your risk of heart disease, PMS, fibroid tumors, endometriosis, and breast cancer;
- enhancing libido;
- fighting fatigue; and
- balancing estrogen levels by supporting estrogen metabolism.
The process of detoxification pulls stashed toxins out of hiding and brings them into the blood and lymph circulation where they can be properly eliminated. During this process, their brief presence in your circulation can make you temporarily more toxic, though this will last only until your detox program successfully eliminates the toxins.
Once they have been expelled, you will experience a significant improvement in the way you look and feel, which will escalate as your liver repairs and regenerates itself.
I will outline a program over the next two days so that, come the 1st or 2nd of January, you will have the tools you need to undo the damage of holiday festivities and ring in the New Year in health and radiance.
