Headaches can be caused by food intolerance or allergies indicative of intolerance to a particular food such as wheat, dairy products, citrus fruits, soy, coffee, tea, caffeinated drinks or peanuts.

Detoxing is about flushing toxins from your body and anything that supports that will improve the way you feel.

According to Katherine Zeratsky R.D., L.D specialty editor for nutrition and healthy eating guide at the Mayo Clinic writes that,

"Benefits from a detox diet may actually come from avoiding highly processed foods that have solid fats and added sugar."

But detox diets that severely limit protein or that require fasting, can result in fatigue. Long-term fasting can result in vitamin and mineral deficiencies. Colon cleansing, which is often recommended as part of a detox plan, can cause cramping, bloating, nausea and vomiting. Dehydration also can be a concern.

Talk to your health care practitioner before you embark on any fasting or detox plan.

Start Detoxing with a Green Drink

You can start flushing out your system with the Green Drink cleanse consisting of greens and fresh water. Do this daily, also:

  • drink three pints of water daily,
  • eat more fruits and vegetables, and
  • stop dairy and meat products which cause congestion in your body.
  • avoid chemicals of any kind as in refined foods such as, sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco and drugs.

When you are doing body cleansing detoxification, do not go to extremes  by fasting and using body enemas and diuretics or doing excessive amounts of exercise. You may lose essential nutrients this way. The aim of this body cleansing detoxification program is to:

  • reduce the workload on your digestive system, and
  • to stimulate and cleanse the parts of your body that are responsible for cleansing and elimination which is your liver and kidneys.

In my estimation, ways to detox your body involve changing your diet, using body therapies such as skin brushing or spa treatments.

Well-being depends on maintaining a balance between your emotional, mental, spiritual and physical health.

Spa Treatment  in Your Home

Try a spa treatment in your home during a weekend. To assist your detoxification plan, arrange your bathroom and bedroom into a spa-like atmosphere.

Before the weekend, you can prepare your body during the week by cutting down on the following food items:

  • coffee and tea,  
  • red meat 
  • processed foods and
  • alcohol

This will help to reduce withdrawal symptoms. But, be prepared for symptoms of cleansing! You may have a dull headache, feel grumpy, hungry and lethargic on Saturday.

During the weekend, you should avoid coffee, alcohol, cigarettes, non-essential drugs, salt and oil. Use only fresh herbs, lemon or lime juice to dress and season your food.

Body Cleansing Detoxification On All Levels

This body cleansing detoxification program involves light eating in order to give your digestive system a rest while your body detoxifies. The fruit juices will stimulate the cleansing organs in your body. If you have a juicer, all the better this is the time to use it. The massages and body scrubs will make you feel and look good.

It is also important to detox your mind with mindful meditation and visualization exercises which will help to create inner harmony and balance.

Basic Visualization

A basic visualization exercise consists of breathing slowly while focusing on a calm and beautiful scene. Picture yourself basking in the beauty.

It also helps to repeat a positive affirmation such as,

"I am relaxed and happy as I cleanse my body."

You can also visualize how clean your body will be after your body cleansing detoxification.

Remember to pamper yourself with foot, hand and scalp massages, face masks, in between meditating, relaxing, writing in your journal or reading.

Also, do some sort of exercise whether indoors or out. If you live near a park, take a long walk in the afternoon. The exercise will facilitate the cleansing and elimination process. Try not to drive as it is stressful. The idea is to be as relaxed as possible during the whole weekend.

Enjoy your weekend of cleansing and relaxation!

ATTENTION: If you do not have the time to do your own home-made body cleansing, follow the maintenance program with 100% natural herbal tinctures from Pure Herbs in the US or Les Herbes Pures in Canada. Read about the cleansing program at colon cleansing herbs, then contact me to order.
