Fun fact? Maybe not, but did you know that your body could be carrying around 5-10 pounds of toxicity at any given time? What is toxicity? It’s defined as poison trapped in inflammation and this poison can cause you headaches, bloating, water retention, food cravings and other medical conditions.
But not me, you say (and I say). You eat clean, you don’t smoke and you use natural cleansers for your body and your home. Well, I’ve got bad news. We, and by we, I mean you and I, are exposed to over 2 million toxins each day including the air we breathe, the food we eat (even with clean eating), the water in our showers (very few of us have water purifiers), and our personal care products.
I always recommend a gentle, seasonal cleansing of our bodies. Nothing too intense like the boxed pills and powders you see on the shelves of natural markets and no starvation. Eating real, clean seasonal foods strategically will naturally rid your body of toxins that can build up and create havoc for our systems.
Did you know Lisa’s Lentils (the Healthy Secretary) offers a 12-Day Fresh Start program? It’s a 12-Day guided, easy-to-do, online program. This comprehensive program educates and guides you through reawakening your sluggish cells and discovering which foods fuel your unique body and which foods sabotage your health.
Included in the program is a recipe guide which you can use long after the cleanse/detox ends with smoothies, soups and treats easy to make and so healthy and good.
By the end of the 12-Day Fresh Start Program you will have:
- eliminated foods wreaking havoc on your body and creating unwanted bloat

- improved your digestion
- eliminated sugar and coffee cravings that leave you feel tired
- reduced inflammation that can lead to bloating, headaches and poor digestion
