As you know, I bang on about insulin resistance and inflammation quite a bit. In this case it is inflammation which is the important part. Increased inflammation in our bodies contributes to disease development and one of the major drivers of this is toxins from what we are eating. These toxins are stored in our bodies, specifically our fat tissue and making us over-weight, inflamed and ill. They also drain our energy and wreck our health making it absolutely necessary to purge our body of these nasty chemicals. My Detox Reset cleanse is a system which does just that.
Inflammation is the body’s natural response to protecting us against foreign bacteria, viruses, and infection. When it senses a threat, the body triggers the release of chemicals and white blood cells and gets fighting. However, there are a number of known substances in our diets today which contribute to this natural inflammatory response getting out of control (see my post on leaky gut here).
My Detox Reset Cleanse eliminates the most common sources of toxins. This allows your body some breathing space to release stored toxins and to start healing itself. After the cleanse you start to add foods back into your diet one at a time. This allows you to identify those causing you a problem, draining your energy levels.
What to Eliminate?
Foods which commonly cause problems include:
Wheat, barley, rye and oats that are not marked as gluten free contain problematic prolamines.
More than half the world population suffers from some kind of milk intolerance or allergy. If you are one of these people then you may find that milk from other mammals such as goats or sheep does not cause problems.
3. RED MEATS
Red meats should be avoided because of farming practices using hormones and antibiotics stored that end up stored in the fat. To avoid these toxins you can choose organic meat instead.
Industrial spreads exacerbate the inflammatory response and are best avoided entirely. Butter is better if you need it.
5. SUGAR AND ARTIFICIAL SWEETENERS
Cane sugar is inflammatory and it is a major driver of insulin resistance. We do not need it in our diets. Artificial sweeteners trick the body into thinking it is dealing with sugar and are exactly what they say on the tin – artificial.
Caffeine is addictive and it lasts in the body for hours. Also it gives you a false energy boost stopping you getting enough sleep.
Alcohol is processed by the liver. Quit for a short time to give your liver a break!
Soy is highly processed and full of toxins.
9. VEGETABLE OILS
Vegetable oils are high in omega-6 fatty acids which are inflammatory. Omega-3 fatty acids on the other hand, are anti-inflammatory. Omega-3s can be found in olive oil, avocado oil and coconut oil as well as fish oils, chia seeds and walnuts.
I recommend the Detox Reset Cleanse to get your body back in balance. Because it purges toxins and gives your body a rest it can transform your health. It was instrumental in my recovery from the autoimmune disease, adrenal fatigue and depression that I battled since my late teens.
Detoxing allowed me to dramatically boost my energy levels and completely transform my health. Contact me today for a free 45 minute discovery call to find out how it can do the same for you.
