Why Detox?

Healthy saladsSo why bother to detoxify the body and where do toxins come from?

In fact our body regularly eliminates many pounds of toxins daily through our bowels.  Our bowels are the human body’s sewage system.  The toxins come from inhaling dust, car pollution, chemical sprays from our household cleaners, undigested processed acid forming foods (please see alkaline foods below) ingested heavy metals and pesticides in our food.  A large amount of toxins come from dead cells from our own body.  By taking time to re-evaluate what we consume from the food we eat to the entertainment we watch, we can increase our wellness, feel energised, calm and alive.

CHECK LIST

18 DAYS BEFORE RETREAT 9.4.13 UNTIL 26.4.13

  • BEGIN GREEN SMOOTHIES – DRINK YOUR 1 LITRE THROUGHOUT THE DAY AT INTERVALS (SEE DETAILS BELOW)

GREEN SMOOTHIES

TIPS

Fresh is always best, however you can make a smoothie and refrigerated for up to 2 days.  But practically speaking I would make up a fresh batch daily. Store it and drink it throughout the day.

It is very important to use different kinds of green leaves as you will lose your desire to drink your green smoothie if you only use one type of leaf.

YOU NEED TO BE CONSUMING ABOUT 1 LITRE OF GREEN SMOOTHIE PER DAY.
