Do you feel 100%?

With modern diets and the stress of daily life, you won’t be alone if you feel as though your body isn’t operating at full speed.

The answer may be simpler than you think.

Detoxing.

How will detoxing benefit you as a healthy person?

What are the health benefits of detoxing?

Do you really need to detox to feel better?

We’ll break down the most important facts about detoxing and how you can incorporate a detox diet that fits with your fitness and health regime.

But most importantly, how detoxing can help you sustain and maintain a happy gut and overall health.

Detoxification has been a game-changer within the health and fitness industry, where fitness experts, trainers, and nutritionists are promoting new and improved health supplements. As the name implies, detoxing is simply eliminating toxic waste from your body using a specific diet, improving your health and weight loss.

So if you want to eat more nourishing diet that can boost your immunity and prevents pathogens, here’s what you need to know.

Good vs. Bad Bacteria

You gut is home to trillions of bacteria and over 100 million neurons, giving it its nickname of our ‘second brain’.

Explained by the nutrition experts at Proactive Health, “our gut is made up of both good and bad bacteria. Bad bacteria, also known as pathogens, make us sick or create infections from food and other external factors. Good bacteria, or probiotics, combat and replace pathogens, promote healthy skin, prevent allergies, maintain urinary health, and do many other important things too.”

While most people know of the difference between ‘good’ bacteria and ‘bad’ bacteria, the reality is that our bodies mostly contain good bacteria.

In fact, a balance of 85% good to 15% bad is ideal.

Bacteria in your gut help to protect you by crowding out bad bacteria that can cause illness. If you’re looking for simple ways to promote the spread of good bacteria in your body, try these simple techniques.

#1 - Get more sleep: Getting 8 hours of sleep a night can help to balance the bacteria in your body.

#2 - Fuel your body: Eating foods rich in vitamins and nutrients (think whole grains, fruits and veggies) will work wonders.

#3 - Increase your probiotic intake: Foods like Kombucha, Kefir or Kimchi can help strengthen your gut health.

As a final step, take the time to ask your body what it needs. While this may sound like new-age thinking, by stopping and listening to your body you will notice where it is hurting.

Take the time to appreciate your body. Take deep breaths. And give your body the food, fuel and rest it needs when it starts giving you symptoms of ill-health.

Goodbye Processed Foods

It’s always easy to fall into the trap of eating processed foods.

Affordable and accessible, processed foods are a part of our diets in 2019.

But did you know that cutting processed foods from your diet can lead to significant health rewards?

- better mood

- more energy

- increased focus

- weight loss

- healthier gut

These are just a handful of the benefits of detoxing to remove processed foods from your diet. However, with processed food part of many of our diets, it can be tough to detox totally. And in many instances it is a case of one step forward and two steps back.

This is an easy trap to fall into according to the nutrition experts at Get A Healthy Life, who explain “processed foods comfort us and often tastes really good. However, eating a balanced diet of nutrient dense foods helps us feel more focused and energetic, and keep you from feeling hungry or longer.”

This is why fitness and health experts promote eating a whole food diet instead of synthetic supplements (meaning a focus on vegetables, fruits, and protein foods), as they are high in water content and are high in fiber, thus making you feel fuller and digest easier.

Taking it to the Next Level

If you are starting to feel a little bit “off”, whether you’ve indulged in last weekend’s feast, lack of energy, or to lift brain fog, you may consider starting a detox diet.

Being able to cut processed foods out of your diet will make you less prone to getting health risks in illness and obesity has become a major health problem. Your health is important and should never be an afterthought.

According to the health coaching experts at Wellbeing Health Retreats, “before you start any detox diet, consult with your doctor or nutritionist to get their approval. You should also not be too restrictive with your detox diet. Many people find success with the 80/20 rule, 80% of their time is focused on healthy eating, getting enough hours of sleep, and being able to move well without injury. 20% is where they can have a feast and enjoy eating food at their own comfort.”

Now that you are now aware that gut health is essential for your overall well being, it now starts with you to create your goals in achieving a healthy lifestyle.

What are you going to do today to make tomorrow your healthiest day yet?
