It's that time of year..nearly.

Detoxing
So it’s the new year ( almost) and it’s time to make some positive changes and reconfirm the plans for the year ahead.

Many of us choose January to do a detox after the period of excesses of the holidays season. However traditionally in Chinese medicine this would be done in the Spring as it is seen as the start of a new cycle of energy leaving behind the stagnant winter and expelling the toxins that have built up and are no longer needed and releasing old energies that no longer serve us.

Lets look at it as a whole -

  • Simplify - Consider helping the environment a little - Here’s an idea - Give up shower gel and its plastic containers and go to soap. Cheaper and also lighter on your carbon footprint.

The average adult uses nine personal care products each day, containing 126 different chemicals. Simplifying this could be very life enhancing both in reducing the amount of chemicals you exposed yourself to and increasing money in your wallet!!

  • Homemade Cleaning products

This also applies to your cleaning products consider making your own and reducing the amount of chemicals you're exposed to. This is an excellent affective surface kitchen/bathroom cleaner.

  • 1 cup of-warm water
  • 1 cup white vinegar
  • 25 drops Wild Orange essential oil or other essential oil of choice

Instructions

  1. In a spray bottle, combine water and vinegar.
  2. Add essential oils. Shake well.
  • Detoxify your life - Take time to walk in the outdoors , Vitamin D is essential for our wellbeing and we only are able to produce it in our bodies when we are outside in direct sunshine.

Our physical and emotional health are very linked and it is of great value to allow ourselves a little downtime to destress and our bodies to be at rest, give yourself the luxury of a little time every day. This doesn’t have to be in the form of meditation or yoga but maybe a 10 min walk in the fresh air, getting off one stop early on the bus or a soak in the bath.

  • Detoxify your body - Focus on how much better you will feel if you give yourself some body treats.It’s time to give your body a little love.

Starting with …

  • Dry Skin Brushing 

To fit this into your day here’s my tip - Whilst your shower is getting hot do it!!

Dry skin brush to remove dead skin and improve your lymphatic drainage (your bodies way of eliminating waste). Tip- This shoulds be done from the tip of your extremities towards the heart. Do this everyday and this is going to improve both your quality of circulation and your skin is going to feel amazing.

A great kit to kick start and support a detox.

  • Milk thistle Combo - Contains Milk Thistle, Dandelion, Nettle and Cats Claw

-Dandelion is an excellent blood purifier, diuretic and general tonic.

-Milk Thistle is packed full of Phytochemicals and minerals to assist your body in detoxing gently, whilst at the same time providing the body with a supportive tonic.

-Nettle, this really supports your urinary system in speeding up the passing of toxins through your water works!.

-Cat's Claw, is cleansing for the kidneys (they also help with the detox + elimination process) at the same time as reducing any inflammation found in the digestive area.

+

  • Cilantro Combo Tincture -  We combine cilantro with a little Yellow Dock Root which has a laxative effect and stimulates bile production - helping to eliminate and break down fats. Cilantro is excellent at the removal of heavy metals ( mercury, aluminium and lead) from our bodies aiding the detoxification process further. It's also a great source of Vitamin C and Linoleic acid.
