Detoxing is all the rage right now. There is a popular misconception about the reason for detoxes and what happens when you do. Detoxing is not about losing weight. It does not actively heal your gut. It does not heal your body. You detox to give your organs a chance to remove the overabundance of toxins before adding new ones. 


Conditions like allergies, dark circles under the eyes, joint pain, inflammation, and weight gain are all signs of your body trying to release toxins as quickly as it is receiving them. Through detoxing, you temporarily relieve these symptoms. 





So how can you achieve wellness that lasts?





The benefits and responsibilities of your digestive system are often overlooked in modern medicine. Plenty of fad diets either neglect or mistreat this system. When you don’t care for your gut properly, you can wreak havoc on your body, becoming a comfortable host for autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue, depression, dementia, cancer, diabetes, and so much more.




Gut health goes beyond losing weight and boosting energy. It is central to your overall health, connecting everything that happens in your body. Your gut controls the breakdown, absorption, and delegation of nutrients. One of the best ways to retain the progress achieved through detox is to take care of your gut.



Signs of neglected gut health include:

  • Skin Conditions
  • Depression
  • Anxiety
  • Seasonal/Animal Allergies
  • Food Aversions/Sensitivities
  • Migraines
  • Headaches
  • Muscle Pain
  • Inflammation
  • Out of Control Deficiencies

The best way to heal your gut is through diet. You should incorporate foods like:

  • Bone broth
  • Fermented Vegetables
  • Coconut Products
  • Sprouted Seeds
  • Omega-3 Fats
  • Dandelion Tea
  • Anti-Inflammatory Foods

What will destroy your gut?

  • Dairy
  • Sugar
  • Inflammatory Foods
  • Wheat/Gluten
  • Inorganic foods (pesticides and chemicals)
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep
