Detoxing – What’s it all about? (Video)


Spring brings new growth and regeneration, which makes it a great time to refresh our systems by carrying out a detox. In fact, according to the Chinese, spring is the ideal time to cleanse and nourish the liver.

To welcome the warmer days of spring, I thought that detoxing would be the perfect subject matter for a Facebook Live event. If you were unable to watch live, you can catch up on the discussion here: 

 I was joined by nutritional therapist, Sophia Hill and we covered a lot of ground, including:

  • debunking some of the common myths and misunderstanding around detoxing
  • identifying the toxins we are exposed to
  • Phase 1 and Phase 2 liver detoxification pathways
  • foods that support a detox
  • our own detoxification routines
  • supplements that help with detoxing
  • why having a fatty liver is dangerous (and how you can reverse it)

Some of the questions we answered included:

  • What are signs and symptoms of toxicity?
  • Can toxins cause skin problems like ezcema/psoriasis/acne?
  • What is Phase 1 and Phase 2 liver detoxification and why is it important?
  • Which foods are natural detoxifiers? 
  • Which supplements help to detoxify the body?
  • Are there any tests to diagnose toxicity? 
  • Can toxins cause weight gain? 
  • Can constipation cause toxicity?

I hope you find the video informative.
