Understanding Detox

Today I thought I’d kick things off with a short, informal quiz so that you could get a sense of where your body is at and how it may be functioning a bit less than optimal these days. And for many of us, that’s putting it mildly!

My intention with this quiz – is to help you become more conscious about your overall health & wellness and to highlight how, before any disease sets in, you may experience any number of symptoms. By better supporting your body in a more preventative way – and addressing any symptoms as they arise, you can avoid many of the diet-related diseases which affect so many people these days.

Detox Quiz (The goal is to have fewer “yes” answers than “no” answers)

  1. Are you tired a lot of the time? (Especially early-morning and/or mid-afternoon?)
  2. Do you lack concentration or find it difficult to stay focused?
  3. Do you get sick frequently (i.e. common cold or flu)?
  4. Do you have bad breath?
  5. Do you often feel congested?
  6. Do you often experience bloating, gas or indigestion after meals?
  7. Do you have less than one bowel movement a day?
  8. Do you have dark circles under your eyes?
  9. Do you have allergies or food sensitivities?
  10. Do you have skin problems (acne, eczema or psoriasis)?
  11. Do you drink less than 5 glasses of filtered water daily?
  12. Do you crave lots of salty or sugary foods?
  13. Do you sleep poorly (difficulty falling asleep or waking up at night)?
  14. Do you have frequent mood swings or lack patience?

All of the above are signs of a body in need of TLC. You may not have answered yes to all of them but even just a few is a good indicator that things are not going great.

So the most important question of all becomes: How do you feel?

I really encourage you to check in with yourself on a regular basis because your body will give you clues when it’s not doing great but sometimes those clues can be subtle and easy to ignore at first….

Perhaps joint pain has set in – mild at first but getting worse, or
You get a headache every now and then but over time they become more frequent, or
Maybe you feel tired and impatient and lose your temper more often than you’d like…

You get the idea. It can be different for each person.

I’ve decided to host a short, free webinar on January 4th 2024 at 7pm EST so that I can explain the in’s and out’s of detoxing with you in more detail. I hope you’ll join me! Here’s the link: Live Detox on Zoom.

I look forward to seeing you there!
