So You Want to Detox: Tips to Ensure You are Successful
We get asked about different detox programs quite frequently. Many of our patients like the idea of doing a detox, but have no idea where to start in picking a safe and beneficial program. A good detox will have a wide range of health benefits, but picking a good program is vital.
With the right program, a well-designed detox can help you…
Get on track with your health goals
Winter is over and the time to be outside and active is here. A detox is basically just a much needed break for your body to cleanse itself. A well-designed detox program can get your body functioning better and reduce inflammation. This can be a great start to achieving your health goals.
Our bodies are constantly assaulted by chemicals. Many of these chemicals are considered endocrine disrupting, and one of the things they will do is wreak havoc on your metabolism. A detox is a good way to get back to the basics, and can be a great way to kick start weight loss. Just be sure that you do not pick a program that provides weight loss that is too rapid. With weight loss, slow and steady is preferred if you want long term results.
Much of that constant fatigue people feel throughout the day comes from diet. When we are stressed we tend to reach for sugars and caffeine. Getting your body and detox pathways functioning at an optimal level can increase energy and help you feel better.
Achieve clearer skin
Many people do not realize that your skin is the body’s largest detox organ. What is happening on the surface of your skin is often a good representation of what’s happening inside. A detox is a great way to decrease things like acne and eczema, and can help you achieve clearer, brighter skin.
Feel better overall
Simply put, a good detox can help with many different things and can be a great way to feel better overall. Headaches, gastrointestinal pain, brain fog – these are just some reasons why patients may consider doing a detox.
Not all programs are created equal. The type of detox you do matters.
There are many different types of detox programs available. Some focus on juicing, others on supplements, and as a patient it can be hard to keep up. For many people a program that is designed with food in mind will be a great fit. We feel that a great detox should start you on the path to better health. Yes, juicing for 7 days can be great for some people, but what about after the program is completed? We want your health gains to continue long term.
This is why we decided to create our own Ethos Detox Program. The program is a 14 day, physician guided detox, designed to kick start health and get you feeling great. The program includes:
- Detox classes
- Medical detox consultation
- Program guide and recipe book
- Physician grade detox supplements
- Blender bottle
- Community support
The program is designed with community in mind. Having support is one of the most important aspects when making lifestyle changes. This program has a mixture of group support and individual medical consultation, giving you the best of both worlds. Grab a friend or family member and improve your health together!
