From time to time I get questions about detox and detox diet plans from my readers and detox news subscribers. I can usually send them some links to articles I have written that cover the subject they have asked about.
I got to thinking recently that it would be a good idea to make a list of some of the posts that I have made in the past that may now be hard to find. I have noticed that the search function on this blog does not always work that well. Also, some good posts that I wrote several years ago seem to now be hidden in the depths of the blog.
Here’s the list of my top 10 Detox Diet articles that will help boost your energy, make you feel and look younger and even help you lose a few pounds.
If you have ever gone on a detox diet or had good intentions of starting the year by eating healthily but ruined it when your cravings got the better of you then this is the article for you.
This post looks at the most common food cravings and what they could mean for you.
While we are on the subject of cravings this is one one of my most searched for and most popular posts and it’s hardly surprising. Sugar is one of the most addictive food there is and that is why the majority of people have such trouble in giving it up. It’s hard to find products in the supermarket that don’t contain it or a toxic sugar substitute that you are also trying to avoid.
This article gives suggestions of what you can eat instead of sugar and explains how to support your body through a sugar detox if you are finding it impossible to resist.
Perhaps giving up smoking is one of your New Year’s resolutions or perhaps you have already given it up. Ehter way this post contains some information about your lungs that may surprise you.
If you are finding it hard to give up then this is a post you will want to read.
I was surprised to discover recently that this is also one of my most popular posts. It’s a good detox to do at this time of the year when the thought of cold juices and salads incold weather is enough to put off. Cabbage soup may not sound that enticing but you will change your mind when you taste these recipes.
The cabbage soup detox diet can help you shed a few pounds if you have gained over the past few months.
I get a lot of questions from subscribers about fatty liver and the best way to combat it. It s a condition that creeps up on you. Your liver can take quite a lot of punishment before it starts to complain so very often you only find out you have a fatty liver when you get a blood test for something unrelated.
This article explains what causes a fatty liver and what you can do about it. Don’t think that giving up fat in your diet is going to be the answer because it’s not.
This post contains a lot of information about why and how to use Chlorella. It is essentially a written interview with Nadia Brydon who uses Chlorella extensively in her work. As well as training in Western and Chinese herbal medicine she trained at the prestigious Hippocrates Institute in the USA where she saw first hand how powerful chlorella was for people with all sorts of health problems.
Chlorella is great for bowel cleansing and Nadia gives two excellent recipes for chlorella smoothies.
Some heavy metals are essential to health but in tiny amounts. Others such as cadmium, mercury, lead and arsenic are toxic if they are not eliminated and build up in the tissues.
It would be very unusual to get a diagnosis of heavy metal toxicity by a mainstream doctor unless you have a known exposure to something like lead. Yet, Functional Medicine and naturopathic doctors look for it as it can lead to numerous symptoms and health problems.
Some people are better than others at eliminating them. If you have high levels they can be hard to shift with a standard detox diet and may need additional support. This article explores some of the things you can use to help detox heavy metals.
Our bodies function best when our blood and tissues are slightly alkaline. But today’s eating habits and lifestyles tend to create acidity. Many health experts believe that acidosis is responsible for a lot of diseases that many people suffer with these days.
The 3 Day Alkaline Diet Plan that is outlined on this post will help to get you started on the Alkaline way of eating for health. Feel that boost in your energy and maybe drop a few of those extra holiday pounds.
Although many people are more likely to be motivated to detox in January, Naturopathic doctors and many other health practitioner believe that Springtime is the ideal time to detox.
Try this one a little later in the year when the new season’s vegetables start to appear. Although you have to avoid certain unhealthy foods you don’ t have to starve yourself and go hungry all the time. Try out the tasty recipes.
10. 2 Day Apple Diet
This detox diet is another highly searched for and popular post. There was a lot of truth in the saying an apple a day keeps the doctor away but it is only recently that scientists have discovered why apples are so good for you.
It is an ideal detox to do over a weekend or when you don’ t have time for a longer one.
Well, that’s my list of top 10 detox diet posts. I had a hard job deciding which posts to include as there are now so many to choose from but I hope they will serve as a reference to help you with your detox diet plan.
