Holiday season is officially over (welp!). There is still Valentine’s Day to look forward to, but let’s be real, unless we are getting days off work, we are not counting it as a holiday! And as much as we all had fun these past few weeks, one might say that we also enjoyed a bit too much in all that yummy food. But it doesn’t matter, because you have surely declared living a healthy lifestyle as one of your New Year’s resolutions, just like the rest of us. Well, it’s time you deliver on that promise to yourself! Luckily, we are here to help you and guide you through the process of post-holidays detoxification. Let’s get started!
Detoxify Your Skin
Skin is the largest organ in human body and yet, its significance is often overlooked. What if we told you that your detox journey could start with a nice, warm bath? But before you go into that bathtub, just grab some Dead Sea Salt and a brush and circulate it over your body, starting from your feet and making your way up.
Why Dead Sea Salt? It’s a dry, natural white crystal harvested from the Southern Dead Sea, where the concentration of minerals is the highest. This extraordinary composition has made the Dead Sea an ideal spot for people seeking relief and relaxation.
Fun fact: did you know that Dead Sea’s salt levels are so high that you don’t have to swim in it, the mere salinity of it will keep you afloat?
Speaking of skincare, one of the resolutions you should definitely internalize in 2021 is to start using more natural skincare products. Using natural deodorants, makeups, moisturizers, shampoos, and other personal care products can reduce your exposure to chemicals and overall improve your health in the long run.
Once you’ve had a good night’s sleep, try to dedicate some time in your day to silent meditation or even journaling, if that feels right for you. It will allow you to clear you mind of all the excess noise and focus on what really matters.
There is only one thing left to do – get started! If you’re unsure on where to start and how, don’t worry, we’ve got you covered – just schedule an appointment with our office and let us guide you through the challenging, yet very rewarding process of detoxification.
Detoxify Your Organs
Obviously, this is where most detox programs start – food is what got you into this mess, food will help you get out of it. Let’s start with a simple do’s and don’ts list:
1. Alcohol and caffeine
2. Sugary foods
3. Processed foods
4. Foods with additives and artificial sweeteners
5. Foods in contact with plastic
6. Major food allergens (gluten-containing foods, dairy, eggs, shellfish, soy, corn, and peanuts)
1. Healthy fats and oils
2. Nuts and seeds
3. High-quality proteins
4. Non-starchy vegetables
6. Dairy alternatives (nut and grain milks)
7. Starchy vegetables
8. Fruits and
9. Certified gluten-free whole grains.
Detoxify Your Mind
Last but not least – just like you’re trying to flush the toxins out from your body, you should aim to flush them from your mind as well. Mental and emotional toxins often go unnoticed, but their removal is just as essential to our overall health.
First of all: lack of sleep is just as harmful as the lack of healthy food. If you’re having trouble sleeping, consider laying off your screens at least an hour before bed. Also, avoid eating anything heavy at least a few hours before bed. If these don’t help, there is a myriad of natural supplements that can help lull you into a nice, revitalizing dream.
