If you’ve begun to lack energy and feel a little bit under the weather then perhaps now is the time to do something about it. As winter sets in, many people get less variety in their diets in terms of fruit and veg. There is far less choice in local produce and lets face it, the foreign versions often just don’t taste the same. Perhaps you could do with a detox to improve the way you are feeling.

Quite simply, a detox is just the removal of toxic substances from the body. It’s something the body does naturally but sometimes it does need a bit of help. When you think of all the potentially harmful things we subject our bodies to, no wonder things can get out of hand. We drink alcohol; more than is good for us at times. We eat far too much sugar and sweet foods. We eat processed meat that is full of chemicals as well as drinking too much coffee and over time these things don’t do us much good at all. Time to eliminate these toxins and give your body a chance to recover.


You could try just eating fruit and veg for several days. You’ll get all the nutrients you need from things such as kale, cauliflower, avocado, broccoli, kidney beans and other varieties; just take a look online for ideas. Consider eating organic food which will have less toxins in it and drink plenty of water throughout the day to help flush out your body.

Heat is an effective way to remove toxins so start using a hot tub to speed up the elimination of these toxic substances. Hot tubs (according to Vita Spa) are also extremely beneficial to anyone going through chemotherapy and will help the toxins produced by the drugs to exit the body faster; an essential part of the treatment.
