It can be challenging to focus on health and wellbeing in the run up to Christmas time celebrations. When all the dust has settled and we sit back in the big comfortable chair to digest our festive experience our thoughts may turn to de-toxification and fresh, (dare we use the word?) clean starts.
There is no doubt that a period of alcoholic abstinence or drinking liquidised or juiced vegetables may help our bodies to eliminate some of the ‘toxic’ load of festive season indulgence. You can do this yourself, have someone deliver juices to you (for London dwellers) or visit a centre where only juice is available and someone else makes it. If you are considering the latter option, I’d highly recommend Amchara de-tox retreats in Somerset or on Gozo (Malta). (“To book into Amchara we have arranged for you to claim a free treatment upon booking through Live Blood London -for all booking enquiries, please contact Emily directly on 0203 7622 488 or firstname.lastname@example.org quoting reference livebloodlondon”)
Having been to Amchara last year I only have one reservation about the detox path.
What do you do when you’ve finished the de-tox?
De-tox is a great principle, but it’s only half of the equation. To sustain the benefits of a week of cleansing you really need to know what to eat and drink when you get back to eating normally. After seven years of nutrition education, I finally found someone who can explain how to eat nutritiously and understands food better than anyone I’ve ever met.
If you’d like to have some fun, spend some time in beautiful countryside and set yourself up with a solid sustainable foundation for 2017 and the years ahead, we’d love to welcome you to a weekend down on Trill organic farm in Devon.
Seeds of Change is a weekend run by Daphne Lambert and Gareth Edwards 20th-22nd January 2017.
