e concept of nourishing your body is clearly tied directly to diet – what you eat. e foods you choose to put into your body are what ultimately nourish (or in some cases deplete) your cells. High quality proteins, for example, give you the amino acids you need to build and maintain bodily structures. Detoxification will occur by shiing a few dietary habits in pursuit of a healthier body that is less exposed to toxins and can better process those that do reach our inner sanctums or that have been with us for years. Some of these habits include moving toward organic foods that are fresh, clean, and whole, as well as avoiding processed, prepackaged, and refined foods. Choosing lean proteins that offer you all the amino acids you need to build and maintain numerous structures in the body – including those that are part of detoxification – is key. e result is an infusion of genuine nutrients that will aid in your digestion process rather than take away from or inhibit it. Benefits of Juicing e health benefits of fruits and vegetables have been recognized throughout history. In order to extract the nutrients the body must break down the fibrous plant cells that hold the powerful nutrient-dense juice. Juicing organic fruits and vegetables is a great way to unleash the benefits without all the digestive work. e benefit juicing has to offer to detoxification comes with the plants you choose to juice. Vegetables are preferable over fruits, as juicing many fruits concentrates the sugars found in fruit. Start with a dark green leafy base of kale or chard, and add vegetables such as beets, celery, and some lemon for taste or half an apple to sweeten it up a bit. It may not sound delicious, but it actually is, and it is cleansing and purifying to the blood and supports liver function. Detox Diet The Detox Diet Detox Diet Page 48 | Abby's Magazine -
