Detox

I mentioned here I was going to do a 10 day detox.  

I reckon for a first time detox-er this would be a bit harsh (and too difficult to stick to!)  So I'm planning a three day one starting today! I've done a bit of online research and have found an achievable plan which eliminates wine, fizzy drinks, chocolate, bread, butter and crisps (ooh I'm going to get grumpy!) 

I've collected some things to help me (please consult a doctor before embarking on a detox especially if you have any health conditions).

Body brushing - as mentioned here.  I've also picked up Napiers Detox Formula Blend - add 10ml to a litre of water and drink throughout the day.  It is meant to be used for 10 days so I'll try and keep this up after my 3 days.  I also picked up some Milk Thistle tablets - a good tonic for the liver.  I'm also going to start my day with hot water and lemon which is  good to hydrate the body and helps to boost detoxification.


I'm planning on drinking lots of water and herbal teas, some DIY pampering beauty treats, going for walks/gardening (weather permitting) and a little yoga.  Afternoon naps and 8 hours sleep a night are also suggested.

I'm planning on eating healthy - homemade smoothies and juices, salads, fruit especially apples, pears and berries, porridge, homemade soups, stir fry and salmon or chicken with lots of steamed veggies.  

Update will follow on Monday!

  1. I'm a great fan of detoxing breaks. I do them regularly and find that really help to also condition my mind... It's so much harder to go back to the old habits after. Xx
