What is it? Why is it important? and How do I do it?
What? Detox, short for detoxification, is the purification of the body by removing toxins.
Why? Detoxification is an important first step in healing, preventing or eliminating illness. It will also boost energy and help with losing extra weight. You will feel lighter, healthier and happier.
How? I started my 1st detox with a psyllium/bentonite clay mixture — 3x a day for 3 days (see below). Read about Bentonite Clay Benefits
1 rounded teaspoon psyllium husk
1 tablespoon liquid bentonite clay
8 ounces water
- Place psyllium and bentonite in glass, then add water and stir briskly.
- Drink quickly, before it thickens.
- Follow with another 8 ounces of plain water or juice.
- Plenty of fluid is important.
In addition, I followed an organic whole food plant-based diet. See Holistic Health.
After a few weeks, I did a 3 day liquid-only fast with healing teas, tonics, fresh pressed juices, soups and smoothies.
