Feeling sluggish? Struggle with dry, patchy skin, or dark circles that no amount of makeup can cover? This is a sign that your body is loaded with toxins and is a great landing ground for the flu, or other viruses. What you need is a detoxification.
Even if you feel fine and look fine, it’s never a bad idea to detox to give yourself a boost. Below is weekend plan with a menu you can do to detox your body and cleanse yourself from toxins.
This detoxification process can affect five organs: lungs, lymph, kidneys, liver, and the intestines. Your diet on this plan will consist of low fat food like meat and potatoes, and means drinking a lot of water.
This diet can be safely done twice annually for ten days at most. Conversely, you can do a weekend detox several times a year if you can’t spend ten days on one. All it takes is forty-eight hours to see and feel incredible results.
This diet works well if you exercise regularly while on it, such as going for a jog, a walk in the park, or swimming. Drinking birch, dandelion, and nettle tea can also enhance your results.
