Need to recharge your batteries, relieve stress or lose some weight? Here are some tips that will help get rid of toxins and give it that much needed boost in time for summer!

The benefits of a detox plan

Our body is under attack every day from poor diet, pollution, stress etc. Nothing beats a detox plan to purify and cleanse your body!

A detox plan gets rid of toxins in the body through a balanced diet, treatments and exercise. But be careful not to go overboard! It could be dangerous for your health! We advise you to follow a detox plan for up to one week no more than once every season.

5 detox boosters

1. Add zest to your life with lemon juice

To get rid of toxins that have accumulated in your body, nothing beats starting the day with a glass of lemon juice. This will help cleanse your liver and flush out your colon after all that overeating. We advise you to drink a glass of tepid water with lemon juice and honey every morning at sunrise and half an hour before breakfast.

2. Watch your diet

Banish junk food! An effective detox plan bans fatty and sugary foods (fried foods, sweets, sauces, ready meals etc). Instead, opt for fruit, vegetables, whole grains and good fats (e.g. fatty, oily fish). Also avoid coffee, concentrated juice, fizzy drinks and alcohol.

3. Drink more during this spring clean

It cannot be said enough ... to get rid of toxins, drink, drink, drink! Be sure to drink at least 8 glasses of still water every day. Water is a great way to drain and cleanse your body.

4. Get moving during this detox plan

The detox plan is not just about eating habits. Spend at least 30 minutes every day either cycling, walking, running or swimming - choose the activity that best suits you.

5. Take time out

Sauna, steam room, facial saune, ... Treat yourself to some ‘me-time’ every day. Steam and heat are excellent ways to get rid of toxins and cleanse your body deeply. But above all else, it’s all about you time!
So what are you waiting for? Start your detox plan straight away. You won’t regret it!
