DETOX FOR RADIANCE
Everyone is so interested in detox, but WHAT IS DETOX?
DETOX, short for detoxification, is the idea that we can remove toxins from our body and thereby feel better.
NOT ALL DETOXES ARE CREATED EQUAL
There are a lot of different detoxes out there in the world and some are good and some are not so great! Some are kind of aggressive, they mobilize toxins out of storage but do not address the pathways to remove them form the body, and they can actually leave you not feeling as well as you did before (and not any healthier!)
It’s important that when we talk about detox, we understand a little bit more about the body and about what's really going on, so we know that what we are doing is effective, gentle, and safe!
UNDERSTANDING THE BODY
The truth is that body is detoxing all the time! If we weren't detoxing, we'd be dead. There are detox processes happening all the time and there are specific detox pathways that are functioning as the path out of the body. However, sometimes they are functioning better than others, and sometimes they can get overloaded depending on your specific situation, your biochemical individuality, your stress load, and your environment.
So really when we want to implement a supportive and healthy detox, we want to be gentle!! We want to support the natural detox processes, and we don't want to liberate or move those toxins out of storage faster than what the natural detox processes can handle in the body or we might end up feeling really sick- which is not what we want!
GENTLE AND IN ALIGNMENT
When we support our body in a gentle manner in alignment with its own natural detoxification processes, we can reveal our true selves, have more energy, have more grounding, have more creativity for our busy lives!
REVEALING OUR TRUE SELVES
And in a sense we CAN talk about detox as a way of revealing the true self. When we detox, we're removing toxins from the system, but we're also removing ourselves from toxic situations, removing toxins from our environment, and implementing lifestyle changes that give ourselves more bandwidth to cope more easily with our daily stress, so that we then have less toxic energy in our life.
To detox on all levels, we need to address multiple levels in our lives. We are addressing diet and supplemental support, for sure, but we are also addressing lifestyle, relationships (both to ourselves and others), negative mindsets, toxic activities, chemical burden, amount of movement, and more. There are a lot of moving parts and pieces and that's what makes it exciting! There are SO many areas of opportunity.
LIVING IN A TOXIC TIME
The sad truth is that we do live in a very toxic time in history: toxins in our environment, toxins in the products we use every day, toxins in our food, air, and our water, toxic EMFs, and maybe most of all, the stress that most of us have in great supply that causes us to simply not be able to detoxify as well as we might in a less stressful time.
We all should be thinking about how to lower our toxic burden as well as how to support our body and our mind in removing as much of the toxic items and also toxic mindsets and
THE COMPOUND EFFECT WHEN CHANGING HABITS
This does not have to be radical! Small changes over time add up to big differences. Incremental changes are probably really the biggest game changer, and they are sustainable and doable!! Information is power, when you know what small changes make the biggest difference you can really start to make progress and FEEL the difference.
It works so well to change habits and learn in community. Doing this work in community, where we all have a shared vision and we can lift each other up, is a transformative experience.
RADIANCE REVEAL GROUP DETOX PROGRAM
If any of this is resonating with you, and you feel drawn to work on all of these things from a place of joy, heart and connection (and also just nuts and bolts about what's really effective and how does the body really work!), then I'd love for you to join our Radiance Reveal Detox Group Program starting up May 15th!
I am so excited to get this group together and for all of us to work with the power of knowledge and community to liberate our creativity, to feel better, to feel more grounded, and to fully step into our futures, feeling more like our true selves!
