Cash In On Some Self-Care Whether it’s a facial, a session in an infrared sauna, or an Epsom salt bath, take some time for self-care during a detox week. Not only will this help get your mind off the detox (and the foods you may be missing), you will naturally feel better. Even something as simple as going to get your nails done will allow you the time to relax and feel pampered. This week is all about you and it’s important to respect that.
Our bodies follow a natural detox process. Unfortunately, it fails to work sometimes due to poor diet, lifestyle and environmental factors.

Regularly encouraging the organs of elimination to do their job better is the only way to manage the toxic burden we all face. Signs and symptoms that toxins may be playing a role include things like fatigue, headaches, brain fog, joint pain, GI issues, acne, heart palpitations, recurring infections, autoimmune disease, muscle cramps, and the list goes on.
