DETOX TIME: SPRING CLEANSING AND BOOSTING!

Feeling sluggish and burdened after a long winter and too much eating and TV watching? No need to do a one week fasting program to get this spring cleansing and energy boost: JUST DO CLAY DETOX!

Dr Roberta Lee, M.D. medical director of the Continuum Center for Health and Healing in NYC says "if we lived in a perfect world, we would never have to detox, but ours is a world of artificial stimulants, pollution and chemicals -and toxins accumulate in each of us". In Chinese medicine, Spring is the season of the liver which is responsible for storing blood, draining and detoxifying the blood and the root of prenatal energy in women.
If you experience fatigue, sadness, digestive or menstrual (if you're a woman of course!) problems, you want to help your liver to feel ease, harmony and peace. In short: to feel great!

You will find great wisdom in animals just by studying their habits. Since they are connected to their biological intelligence, they always know what they need to do to rebalance themselves. Whenever wild animals feel sick, they instinctively go to lick clay deposits and roll in clay mud to remove toxins, bacteria and parasites from their body.

To spring into a lifetime of healthy energy, start with a simple but performing detox program: clay, juicing and lemon tea! Easy, simple and visibly efficient. By cleansing your liver and digestive tract and purify your blood from toxins, pollutants and bad bacteria or parasites you will:

  • feel more energy
  • experience better quality sleep
  • have better digestion
  • shed off a few pounds
  • feel lighter and easier in your movements
  • achieve more performance in sports and workouts
  • sense more facility to meditate and relax

THE 5-steps DETOX PROGRAM:

  1. Mix 1 teaspoon of a green clay (Montmorillonite) in an 8oz. glass of water or juice, stir and let it sit overnight. In the morning, drink the water and leave the clay deposit. Drink once a day for 3-7 days. After a week, your body is used to clay, so you can drink the entire mixture! Continue for 2 more weeks.

    Depending on your level of polution, you may want to either stop here or wait a week and continue the detox program. Warning: do not stop the clay cure before 3 weeks! Clay is like a sponge and a sticky paper for all the toxins, pollutants, bad bacteria, viruses and parasites, so it pulls the bad stuff out of your tissues to eliminate them. While detox, drink plenty of water

  2. drink a few cups of hot water with 1/2 lon juice and 1 or 2 tablespoons of high-grade maple syrup every day for 3 weeks 3. Here is a good detox juicing recipe: 5 carrots + 2 celery stalks + 1/2 beet + 1/2 thumb of fresh ginger root + 1/2 lemon a few times a week with a healthy diet low in refined sugar and saturated fats.
  3. exercise moderately
  4. meditate 15min everyday or every other day
When you start detox and the toxins begin to crawl out of your system, you may feel slightly tired, which is normal. But even after the 1st week, you will start feeling the difference: lighter, more relax, more energized. And guess what? Your skin will benefit from this detox more than you can imagine: more energy, more radiance, more suppleness!
