January is an excellent time to shift your focus back to you, to focus on healthy eating and allowing your body some rest and relaxation, although a detox is traditionally done around the equinox of Spring and Autumn. However a simpler and cleaner way of eating for just a few weeks will reward you with improved energy & mood at any time of the year. Here are our favourite DIY detox options:
Does exactly what it says on the tin! With the ability to replace half of your supplements, if not all, Life Drink's ingredients are so impressive that we will give you a quick check list summary as follows:
Designed by Stephen Terrass, former Solgar Technical Director and previous speaker at Therapy, for us, this is the number one food supplement which should be on everyone's shopping list to give us a nutritional boost, as and when needed!
Note, that it the interests of purity, Life Drink is unflavoured so can be mixed with water for those used to taking their greens juices or add to juice or a smoothie for those who need to disguise the flavour.
The jar contains 19 servings but some may find that they are simply too energised if taking the full dosage so can reduce this to a half scoop or take every other day to make the pot go further!
One of our favourite products ever. This superfood blend contains the finest quality ingredients which can benefit everyone. If a customer is low in energy,mood or nutrient status, or needing help with digestive, hormonal or immune systems, this is often our go to product. It's not just about the ingredients, but more importantly the quality of each one and the way the ingredients are grown.
Yes this does need to be made up into a green drink (and is often referred to as 'Kermit drink' 'pond water' etc)... but once you're fine with that you'll reap the benefits. Great to be used all year round, we cannot recommend this highly enough.
Our naturally cleansing tea. A customer favourite, it is often served in our clinic. This organic blend contains peppermint, lemongrass, liquorice root, rose hips and lemon peels.
The perfect start to the day to kick start the liver & kidneys, can also be drank throughout the day. Ideal with any detox or weightloss plan.
Grannies favourite has really made a comeback. We love Epsom salts. Through osmosis they detoxify whilst providing the body with magnesium (a mineral that most people are deficient in). Magnesium helps relaxation, aids sleep (essential during a detox to allow the body to repair and renew) and relaxes tight muscles to relieve tension.We recommend a good handful in your bath, two or three times per week. This can result in improved blood flow and oxygenation of the tissues, thus improved overall health. And, they won't break the bank.
(Add a few drops of lavender for extra relaxation, sage for grounding, or spruce to improve circulation)
