Take this quizz to see if you need to shift attention to your digestion, detoxification and elimination systems.
This is the time of year where our body needs extra love and care, in preparation of the holiday fun, greater consumption of rich foods and alcohol, the year-end deadlines, virus and common cold, cooler and darker days that make us want to be more sedentary, less sun exposure, and the microbiome seasonal mutation. Caring for your digestive system and your detoxification system are, in my opinion, the two most critical factors to keep you healthy and feeling your very best. Any dysfunction will take your edge of greatness. So I have prepared a little series to help you detox and rejuvenate on your own.
QUIZZ: Do you Detox Systems need love?
Do you experience any of the following? If so your detoxification system needs some support.
In addition, if you do not pee every 2h and poop twice a day, or once at a minimum, your detoxification system need help. We’ll discuss how everything works next week.
For now I have a little experiment for you, ahead of next week’s knowledge:
If you consume alcohol, can you carve out, at the very least, two days a week, every week, to be alcohol free to help your liver catch up on its detoxification duties?
If you do not consume alcohol, can you try to reduce your total caffeine consumption to no more than one or two drinks/intake a day (that includes coffee, black and green tea, chocolate, energy drinks, colas, etc.)? When it comes to coffee, only one shot of espresso…
Next week we’ll discuss your digestion and the two-step liver detox process.
Until then, be well!
