Benefits of Detoxing

Things to do after a detox

Benefits of Detoxing - Drink Lots of Water

DRINK PLENTY OF WATER

Detox at Vitae Detox Retreats

One of the foundations of healthy living and a body that functions well is ensuring our daily intake of water. We all need at least 2 litres of water every day, not counting tea or coffee. Water will help to prevent dehydration, headaches, tension, swelling or bloating and improve the overall quality of the skin. During your detox program we encourage you to drink as much water as possible, at least 4 litres to assist and speed up the removal of toxins.

FOOD AND DIET

Detox at Vitae Detox Retreats

Fibre, in the form of vegetables and grains, for example, is invaluable in cleansing the body. Too much protein and fat clogs the arteries, slows down the system and makes us feel sluggish after eating. The less food is cooked, the better it is for your body and immune system and raw foods are excellent system cleansers. Optimal foods include: leafy greens, carrots, baby sweetcorn, broccoli, cabbage, tomatoes, mushrooms, celery, and onions. Try experimenting with raw foods, get creative!

JUICING

Detox at Vitae Detox Retreats

You can pulp or liquidise almost any fruit or vegetable into a delicious drink that can be very filling and excellent for cleansing the system. The vitamins and minerals contained in fruit and uncooked vegetables together with their high liquid content, make them ideal for cleansing and re-hydrating the body.

SKIN BRUSHING

Detox at Vitae Detox Retreats

Dry brushing should always begin at the feet and move up the body, stroking towards the heart. It is an excellent way of stimulating and increasing circulation to help keep cellulite away. Dry brushing also stimulates muscle contraction improving blood and lymph flow, clears the pores, removes dead skin and stimulates sebum, which in turn helps to improve the texture and tone of the skin. After just a few days of following this regimen, the skin will appear smoother, softer and boast a natural radiant glow.

Benefits of Detoxing - Exfoliation

SKIN EXFOLIATION

Detox at Vitae Detox Retreats

The skin is the largest organ and an excellent way for the body to release toxins. Exfoliating in firm circles, both large and small, all over the body opens and cleans the pores, energises and revitalises the skin and makes elimination unobstructed. We recommend that you exfoliate the skin gently every three days. You can create a natural blend using honey, salt and coconut oil.

ENVIRONMENTAL DETOXIFICATION

Detox at Vitae Detox Retreats

After detoxing your body it is time to bring a bright new positive focus on your surroundings, both at home and at work. Our surroundings are of inestimable power and value to us. A happy and warm atmosphere will make you feel safe and secure and promote relaxation. Look very critically at your environment, start by going through your home room by room sorting out clutter & then move onto your wardrobe and cupboards. Bin anything that is junk and give the rest to charity. Next, clean the windows and make sure your home is filled with plants, pictures and lots of fresh air. Check personal care products such as shampoo, mouthwash, toothpaste, hairspray, laundry detergent, surface cleaners and cosmetics for harmful toxic ingredients such as Formaldehyde, Triclosan, Bleach, Chlorine, Ammonia, and Petroleum and replace them with natural products.
