Cleanse and Detox to Start the New Year

 

With the holiday season being a jump from one party or event to another with indulgent eating offered at most functions, it makes sense to start your New Year with a detox or cleanse. This sort of body cleanse helps you tackle the year with expanded health and happiness!

When the New Year comes around, it seems like everyone plans some sort of cleanse or detox protocol, and for a good reason. The New Year is the perfect time to reset the mind, body, and spirit with mindful, clean foods and to recommit to a healthy lifestyle that serves your individual constitution. But before you tackle a cleanse or a detox program, check out a few basic tips that will guide you toward a more enjoyable cleansing journey.

Support Your Natural Cleansing Process

One of the easiest ways to support your body’s natural cleansing process is to drink more water. As the adage goes, “Nature’s solution to pollution is dilution.” This definitely applies to the human body, as it’s composed of 55 to 60 percent water. When initiating any detox protocol, it’s a fundamental cornerstone of the process to drink a lot of clean, filtered water—in particular, warm, filtered water with organic lemon juice—to facilitate toxin elimination.

Drink Natural, Organic Liquids

Natural, organic liquids like fresh juices, smoothies, broths, or teas are a great way to cleanse. When you consume mostly liquids, you thereby eliminate a chunk of energy normally required for digestion of fiber and solid foods, which can range from 5 to 15 percent of your total energy. Think of this rest period from solid food as giving your body a much-needed break from the tiring task of digestion and reassigning its energy to detox and elimination duty.

It’s important to note that animal proteins and alcohol require the most energy to digest. This is why all effective detox protocols require you to give up all sources of animal protein and alcoholic beverages.

Magnify Your Mornings with Moringa

Whether you drink it in a tea or a breakfast smoothie, or stir it into your soups or baking, moringa offers a multitude of cleansing benefits. Moringa is packed with antioxidants and nutrients that protect the cells from the damage we do to them.

Be Gentle with Yourself

One point about the mental side of cleansing: this is not an opportunity to punish yourself for bad food choices you’ve potentially made in the past or to unleash any cruel, authoritarian side you might have. It’s not a time to become unkind to yourself. If things are not going as planned, give yourself permission to mindfully and gently adapt the cleansing program so you can finish it with satisfaction.
