Everything you ever wanted to know about the detox and its practice.

What is detox?

You've probably already heard about detox. This word, which is increasingly used by the press and the media, is on everyone's lips and is often misused. Many people embark on a detox cure every year, whether it is a total fast, a diet or a mono-diet based on liquid or solid. There are countless possibilities and innovations that are made available to us. By definition, detoxification is "the elimination of toxins by a living organism". It is therefore the process by which the body eliminates toxins, generated by malnutrition, pollution, stress, ... that it stores over time.

Detox, fake or fiction?

What are the benefits?

We all have our reasons to embark on a healthier lifestyle. In preparation for the summer, following a festive weekend or simply for the experience or challenge, all reasons are good to take care of yourself and make yourself feel good.

By consuming solid and often industrial food all day long, our body has little time to properly deal with the elimination of toxins. It is however initially equipped for the elimination of these and for self-detoxification.

Consuming only juices, which are liquid and separated from their insoluble fibres, for one or more days will allow it to take a digestive break and concentrate almost exclusively on the elimination of toxins. A detox cure therefore gives a small boost in moments of tiredness, stress or change of season, during which your body is tired. It are not the juices which, by definition, cleanse the body, but the temporary consumption of liquid which requires little digestion and therefore allows the body to go further in the evacuation of stored waste.

On the other hand, juices provide a large quantity of natural vitamins, good minerals and nutrients, which is not the case with all diets.

Need a goal? There are plenty good reasons to detox.

  • 01. The challenge

    If physical challenges are very popular, those concerning our diet are much less so. Body and mind are intrinsically linked! Taking on challenges gives you self-confidence, brings a feeling of accomplishment and fulfilment. Over a short period of time, taking a cure, can be a good and healthy challenge to embark on.

  • 02. To lose weight

    Weight loss comes as a result of a diet that is low in fats and refined sugars. This is the case with cures based on green juices. However, if you do not return to a balanced diet after your cure, any weight you may have lost will quickly return. This "yo-yo" effect is not good for the body. If your objective is to lose weight, we always advise you to contact your doctor before taking any steps.

  • 03. For your body

    By eating only liquid food over a period of 1 to 3 days, you will give your digestive system and your body a break. You will be able to take some time for yourself, to do moderate physical activity, to read your book, to linger on your passion, ... you will save time preparing meals and give it to yourself.

  • 04. For your interior

    Going through a detox cure is also an opportunity to take stock of my diet. Caught up in a fast-paced lifestyle, you need a stop every now and then and take time to ask yourself the right questions. What do I want to change in my lifestyle? Why change my diet? What can a cure do for me? For 1 to 3 days, you can focus on yourself, you no longer worry about the evening menus you will have to cook when you get home from work, and you can enjoy a personal moment.

  • 05. For taking care of yourself

    Whether for one or several days, a detox cure is above all the ideal opportunity to take a break. That is why detox should not mean restriction, but rather a combination of completeness and pleasure. The sources of pleasure can be diversified by opting for herbal teas, fruit or vegetable juices. The trick is to eat "liquid"! You pay attention to your body, to the sensations you feel and offer yourself moments of relaxation for a complete revitalisation. Sport, relaxation, mindfulness and of course everything that pleases you personally are important allies in the completion of a cure.

Advantages & Advices, Risks & Side effects

Advantages

The main advantage of a juice-based detox cure is therefore the essential intake of liquid, which generally only requires a short digestion. This gives our digestive system a rest and it doesn't have to work non-stop.

Carrying out a cure also gives us the opportunity to make a new start, to get back into good habits in the long term: eating the famous "5 fruits and vegetables a day", replacing certain industrial products with healthy and balanced snacks, reducing the consumption of coffee, alcohol, salt and sugar or animal proteins... Prepared dishes, for example, require a lot of energy for the body to assimilate them and make digestion long and complicated.

A cure also means learning which foods to combine and for what kind of benefits! You will see that ginger, turmeric or spirulina can easily provide food supplements that may not be present in your usual diet. The right food combinations can boost your immunity in a natural way, and energise your everyday life.
