There are times when I feel like I want to give my body a break. This happens when I’ve over indulged in food (I love to eat it ), and wine.  Living in wine country will do that!  You’ve probably had this experience yourself at one time or another.

Do detox diets and cleanses really work? Actually, I don’t know. What I know is that detoxing and cleanses are common buzz words and it seems most everyone I come in contact with has been on a detox, just finishing a detox, or going on a detox.

I definitely have an opinion about it but I would rather focus on what I know for sure: The liver kidneys, lungs, digestive system and skin are the most effective tools for detoxification not some 10 day cleansing kit, tea or special diet.

Before you spend your hard earned money on your next detox kit, “skinny” tea, juice cleanse or special diet remember this, your body does a beautiful job of detoxing all on its own!

It’s possible for our natural detoxification systems to become overburdened for a number of reasons including poor lifestyle choices, exposure to toxic chemicals, medications, even stress can produce more chemicals that need to be detoxed.

For most of us, the natural reaction is to reduce consumption.  Now that’s a good plan, but with my knowledge in nutrition and the body’s amazing ability to detoxify and cleanse, I know there’s more to it than simply “cutting back.”

And given that the liver is the workhorse when it comes to detoxification, I am inspired to boost the process by adding specific nutrients; those foods and nutrients that boost our body’s ability to detoxify.

That’s what my 7 day body refresh is all about. A way to get your body back in balance, so you can feel lighter and more energized in a few short days. You can get it here.
