Happy and Healthy New Year!
Do you have frequent colds, mood changes, nervousness, headaches, constipation, insomnia, or backaches? These symptoms might be signs of toxicity.
We can get toxins from everywhere: the air we breathe, the water we drink, the food we eat, our, make up, the household products we use, the clothes we wear, in other words, just about anything we touch.
Just by using shampoo, eye shadow, lipstick, mascara, and perfume, you can be exposed to hundreds of chemicals. And we wonder why we get headaches, rashes, hormonal changes, allergies, infertility and cancer.
During the winter season, many of us consume much more fat, sugar, alcohol, meat, etc., causing our bodies to become even more toxic
So why wait till spring to detox, when you can feel better all year long with a super simple detox.
Just by drinking more water and shifting from the most congesting foods (sweets, diary products, bread, fats, fried foods, refined flours, meats, hydrogenated fats, drugs) to the least (fruits and vegetables, grains, nuts and legumes) you can achieve weight loss, and detox at the same time..
