Where to Start My Detox? Is such an excellent question that it has taken 2 blog posts so far to answer it.
Part One is here and Part Two is here
We start Detox by raising the quality of our diet. We do this by increasing the number of Superfoods in our diet and decreasing the number of junk foods – by choosing to exclude junk foods such as sugar, sodas, fries and burgers.
So far, so good!
Then we focus on preparing ourselves for the Detox by healing the gut with a simple combo of gut healing foods, nutrients and herbs.
Only then can we successfully get down to detox.
We started in Part 2 with detoxing or cleansing the colon. My first choice for colon cleaning is the Robert Gray Colon Cleansing Programme.
Suppose you spend 2 months or longer doing that – what’s next?
After Colon Cleansing…..
After detoxing the colon or even before – you decide how thoroughly you want to detox.
If you want a simple procedure that is easy to follow then you can just use a general detoxer such as Capra cleanse which is the simplest detox formula I have found with a credible combination of detox nutrients and herbs.
But if you want a thorough detox of the colon in particular then you start your detox with a colon cleanse and then move on to a detox of the Kidneys and Liver.
So you could decide to use the Robert Gray Colon Cleanse and then use Capra cleanse to detox your kidney and Liver.
Or you could use the extremely thorough detox programme designed by Jon Barron which has a number of detox teas and tinctures which focus in turn on the colon, then the kidney and then in the liver.
You don’t often see these options spelled out like this because these decisions are generally made in a 1 on 1 with a Naturopath.
There are other options too – which I have discussed in my detox books.
There are some people who just want the most thorough, deep and far reaching detox they can get and there are other people who want the simplest option they can find.
I have tried to find a way of providing the way forward for each type but it gets a little complicated sometimes that’s for sure.
If you have never done a detox before I’d suggest you consider doing the Robert Gray and follow it up with Capra cleanse.
And if you have extra questions about Detox feel free to ask them in a comment at the end of this post.
And if you have a Detox method that you think I should have covered do share it!
