Here we go again – it’s detox time.
Well, it is the change of the seasons and, as is my custom, both Spring and Autumn are times for a clean out. Many people get into the idea of ‘spring cleaning’; well, I like an autumn clean as well. So each year, I invite all those around me to have a go. The first question people ask me is “why?”
When you detox your body, you sequentially exclude food over a week, leaving you with three magic days when you flush your system. These three days will vary in intensity, depending on your experience, needs and commitment.
It might just be three days on fruit. It could be three days on fruit juice. Or, you might go for a day on fruit juice, and a day on water, then another day on fruit juice as you work your way back up again onto you full diet.
A detox is the perfect opportunity to get your life back on track and to consider what it is that you really do want from life and what it is that you need to do to make it happen.
For many people, in the West at least, the idea of going without food is scary, and seemingly impossible. Yet many people in the world will go without food for several days a week or be living on a severely limited diet. A detox is much more than a physical thing. It is also a time when we can clear our mind and make decisions about life or lifestyle, that enable us to grow and develop as people.
I will be starting my Autumn detox on the week beginning Monday September 19th. If you want to join me, drop me an email and I’ll send you a detox programme back with suggestions for daily diet. I will ask Ed to make sure the detox programme is up on the website too, so you can follow along.
Several people that are joining me this year are working on changing their relationship with food, alcohol, nicotine and other substances. A detox is the perfect opportunity to get your life back on track and to consider what it is that you really do want from life and what it is that you need to do to make it happen.
