Detox your relationships To create health, we need to enjoy healthy loving relationships with others, free from fear. This is a core need at both the emotional and the spiritual level. The love we thrive on is the kind of love that does not judge us or require us to be one way or the other- what many people call unconditional love Read More...

Is something affecting your reception? With the mental clarity and increased energy that it brings, a detoxification diet is often a good time to assess your lifestyle - and make positive changes that will benefit you long-term. So today's question is - does your lifestyle suit you, or is there something, or several things, that are draining you of vital energy? This could be something as simple as sitting down in front of the television every night (is it really relaxing you as you think, or does it simply 'wind you up' so your nerves are all a-jangle and your sleep full of negative images?) Does your work make your heart sing, or do your colleagues sap you with their negative chatter, or the building you work in drain you? Set aside a time when you can spend some time alone Read More...

Stop check Environmental toxins are one of the more subtle energy thieves in our lives. Excessive noise, environmental poisons and allergy-provoking chemicals in our air and water all affect us to varying degrees. Environmental hazards that the body has to overcome (each of which puts strain on the liver, the body's main detoxification organ) include aluminium from antiperspirants, pots and pans; anabolic steroids; antibiotics; cadmium and lead in cigarette smoke; cleaning solvents; mercury from fillings in teeth; non-steroid anti-inflammatory drugs; oestrogens from oral contraceptives and HRT; pesticides and herbicides (DDT, DDB, dioxins and halogenates like PCB and PCP which act as oestrogen mimics and can mess with our reproductive systems), as well as solvents like formaldehyde, acetone and toluene Read More...

When you're on the go There are a few ideas on the recipe page for what to pack in your briefcase or bag when you're working away from home or at the office. It's important to always have something up your sleeve. Make homemade humus and put in tupperwares for the week. Each morning chop up a few peppers, apples, celery and carrot sticks - and you're away! Pack it in your handbag and hey presto, when you feel hungry you have an instant meal Read More...

Support yourself There are many ways we can support ourselves while undergoing our detox diets. We've already spoken about the benefits of exercise. There are other things we can do to make positive changes in our life that actually help support us on the plan.

Sugar - the hidden rollercoaster Excuse me, all you gentlemen reading my blog, but it's before my period, and I'm not craving sugar as I would normally be. At the checkout at the petrol station, the friendly cashier took my card and tried to tempt me with a 'Three free donuts for the price of 1' offer Read More...
