Clear the way for Weight loss
Detoxing is a good start to any weight loss regime by clearing toxins, rejuvenating the digestive system, supporting the liver and re-adjusting your diet.
What are toxins?
Put simply, toxins are produced by bacteria, worms and food and water-borne parasites that enjoy a high sugar “junk” food diet. Toxins are poisonous substances produced by living organisms and detoxing is the process of eliminating them.
Before undertaking any detoxing regime is it important to be well-hydrated. Ensure you are drinking at least 2 liters of filtered water a day for a month before starting your regime. That’s because if you are not hydrated, rather than being eliminated, toxins will find other areas of the body to relocate. Two locations toxins will favor are the kidneys and the brain. Headaches when detoxing are a sign that the toxins have relocated to the brain.
The 5 main food groups to eliminate during a detox regime that can help with weight loss are sugar, grains, dairy, caffeine and meat.
Sugar “feeds” parasites and worms so starving them helps to eliminate them and for the eggs and larvae to “die” off.
Grains– especially wheat, help to take the load off the digestive system.
Caffeine – eliminating coffee and black/green tea because you are supporting your kidneys and liver to detoxify, giving these organs a break and a chance to recover from constantly processing caffeine. Substituting with DETOX tea and/or WEIGHT tea will not only support these organs but also nourish them.
Meat – substituting red meat as it is acidic (parasites thrive in an acidic body) plus meat requires a lot of digestive enzymes. Undigested meat remains in the intestines and becomes putrefied and creating more toxic build-up.
HERBAL TEAS THAT CAN HELP WITH YOUR DETOX REGIME
DETOX tea – with the combination of Dandelion leaf and Milk Thistle (2 effective liver herbs) with Ginger root and Nettle, this tea is ideal to drink during a detox. It’s a gentle, non-purging tea that will nourish and support your liver and kidneys.
WEIGHT tea – the herb Cleavers helps to cleanse the lymphatic system. The Spearmint herb is digestive and Olive Leaf is considered to be anti-obesity. The Sencha Green tea in this herbal blend will also stimulate the metabolism. The WEIGHT tea is also a great substitute for caffeine drinks. In summer, drinking it cold is a good option.
You can also combine the teas, DETOX tea, and WEIGHT tea into one brew for the best effect.
If you find that the changes in diet mean you become constipated, then our CONSTIPATION tea at night will help to settle digestion and enable good elimination of the bowels.
