10 top tips for detoxing and cleansing after Christmas

First, lighten up your toxin load. Eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars, and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process.

Fasting is not a new fad

Fasting is not a new fad, and can be undertaken at any time of the year, from 1 day to 30 days. However, the perfect time to begin any fast is at the beginning of January, just after Christmas, when many of us are willing to abstain from food for a while, quite simply because […]
