1. INTRODUCTION I know I know as soon as you hear DETOX you will get goose bumps and think straight away I will be hungry, angry and I will die!

But that is probably because you have never stopped to think about what a real detox means. I am not talking about starving yourself, rather I am talking about the real thing! The detox that allows you to take time for yourself, not only to look after your body, but your mind, emotions and everything that will affect your life directly or indirectly!

Think about it, when was the last time you stopped looking at your phone for at least an hour? How do you feel when you haven't replied to that message? When was the last time you looked out the window while you were on the bus to work?

This step by step guide will help you detox your life from everything that doesn't make you feel good. The following detox habits have the power to make your life a lot happier and easier.

I hope you enjoy it!

2. WHAT IS DETOX? Detoxification is an essential process for everyone due to the increased toxin exposure in our daily lives.

Detox means assisting the body with the removal of everyday physical and emotional toxins.

When you think about detox, I also want you consider not just the physical removal of toxins, but also the emotional aspect that may need to be released as well. Toxicity can build in many areas of your life - from social networks you keep, the stress that you experience, and the quality and quantity of the sleep you get.

HOW CAN YOU SUPPORT YOUR BODY'S DETOX PROCESS?

1. Be good to your gut: add a good natural source of fibre to ensure your intestines can excrete toxins without difficulty. 2. Reduce stress: stress not only causes inflammation, but also causes poor digestion. 3. Keep your fluids up: toxins can be excreted through urine and sweat. 4. Give your liver some TLC: with some green tea, curry and cruciferous vegetables. Including the emotions in conjunction, with the physical activity, is the key for a deep elimination process.

Starting now, you will give up on what no longer serves you, and embrace transformation and evolution through detox!

3. What do you need to do more? Celebrate your successes Celebrate others successes Laugh. Really really laugh Dance. It's the best therapy for happiness. Lose your self Breathe deeply. Fill yourself with fresh air, with life! Question your habits. Are they beneficial or are they bad habits? Forgive others Forgive yourself Eat fresh natural foods Eat more veggies Reconnect with nature. Find an outdoors activity Express your emotions. It is liberating! Get some more fibre from natural sources Enjoy the sunshine. Love your body with some natural vitamin D

4. What do you need to do less of? Labelling. Allow yourself to see things from a fresh prospective Trying to impress others Pleasing others. Do thing because you love to, or don’t do it at all! Comparing. You are unique! Complaining. Count your blessings! Fighting. That only feeds your ego Stop eating crap! It is crap if the ingredients have numbers Reduce your sugar consumption. You don’t need it. There are more delicious things to eat in life Stop the excuses and start acting!

5. What do you need to eat more of? • Warming and grounding foods. Root vegetables such as carrots and sweet potato, they are easier to digest and good to relieve clogged up bowels • Prebiotics and probiotics. Especially from fermented foods, they strengthen your immune system and balance your gut flora • Vitamin C plus zinc. From eggs and orange fruits and vegetables • Antioxidant rich foods. Parsley, onions, berries, cacao and citrus fruits • More green foods. They are the most nutrient-dense and cleansing foods you can give to your body. • Drink plenty of water. Start each day with a large glass of filtered water and a slice of lemon or lime

Fermenting converts sugars – glucose, fructose and sucrose – into cellular energy and a metabolic by-product (lactic acid), which in turn produces fantastic digestive enzymes and healthy gut flora and cuts the sugar content of a food‌ all in one! These bacteria are one of the best natural remedies to heal gut problems. It should be noted that healing our immune system starts from the gut. Probiotic foods such as sauerkraut or pickled vegetables may be indicated to bring the gut flora into balance and strengthen the immune system.

Place half of the dill, chilli and the garlic cloves at the bottom of the jar. Add the carrot sticks. Fill the jar with filtered water until it covers the carrots. There should be about an inch (3cm) from the top of jar. Add the rest of the dill and salt and cover. Very gently shake the jar to ensure they dissolve in the water. Place in a warm spot away from direct sunlight and direct heat. Should be ready in 3-4 days. If you like it, move it to the fridge.

7. NOURISHING HABITS Each morning upon waking, get in touch with what a gift life is: to breathe, to move, to love, to feel alive!

If you decide to start an exercise routine, start with light exercises and focus on strengthening the muscles in your core! As this holds the most important organs to keep you alive. These organs are held in place by muscles. That's why it's so important to keep them toned.

Pilates, yoga and walking are excellent for core strength, you can even active your core while you are driving!

Breathing exercise Breathing is an important part of the detox process, as it helps the body to restore its balance, oxygenate your cells and make you feel centred and in the present moment. This will also help reducing stress and anxiety.

Breathe in deeply for 7 seconds,

hold that breath for 7 seconds,

and then take 7 seconds to release the air from your lungs,

hold for 7 seconds, then start again.

Do this 7 times through!

My favorite way to do this is when walking (use the steps as your count and you'll find that the rhythm of it comes easily). But don't limit it to your daily walks.

Anytime you are running, taking a shower, or sitting at your office desk, go through the 7 rounds of 7.

After a few times of doing this, the effect you feel is going to speak for itself.
