Food Detoxification Changed My Life



It’s funny how pain can encourage drastic life changes.  By the time I was 18 years old seasonal food detoxifications were a regular practice in my life.  Like many women, my journey began with a physically painful transition from teenager to young adult.   For several years I suffered from extreme hormonal wackiness.  Every change of the month brought about swelling cysts, allergy attacks, and severe sugar/starch cravings. I honestly felt as if I had no control over my body. I needed solutions.

With the help of my doctor and some self testing, I discovered that I could control the severity of my monthly reactions through diet and exercise.  I increased my water intake to minimally 64 oz per day. I reduced my sugar, sodium, and starch intake.  80% of my diet became fruits and vegetables. I exercised 4-5 days per week.  Through diet and exercise, I changed my life forever.

The major benefits of my food detoxifications have been gaining better control over my body’s responses to the natural aging process and external environments. I know that hormonal changes are going to happen, but we women over that age of 30, can control whether we develop a pop belly by controlling our starch intake.  Allergies may develop but it can be less debilitating if we eat nutrient dense foods that encourage immune support rather than suppress the immune system. Food cravings may occur, but eating foods high in essential vitamins, minerals, and fiber help us feel more satisfied.

Every change in the season, I choose to press the reset button on self control, weight spikes, increased body fat percentage, and overall feelings of balance.  I feel great.
