How you start your day makes a huge difference in your life and your day.

Intelligent + Organic Food Detox

THE INTELLIGENT FOOD DETOX CLEANSE
People everywhere have realized that sometimes, you can have your juice and eat things too. But not eat just anything, mind you—healthy, carefully-curated and nutritionally rich food, selected and created by our healthy eating experts. At IG our focus is on eating brightly colored fruits and vegetables, whole grains, beans, and lean protein. by taking a 3 – 5 -7-10 day break from bad dietary habits. You will eliminate caffeine and alcohol refined sugar, flour, gluten, dairy and processed foods, which will help you establish healthier patterns and you’ll multiply your energy as your weight, blood sugar, and cholesterol tick down.

Focus on Antioxidants

Antioxidants activate liver enzymes that “knock out” harmful substances and make them water soluble, so your body can get rid of them more eas- ily. Spinach, kale, cranberries, green juice, and yerba mate are super-antioxidant-rich.

Organic Products

Pesticides are toxins, “and I think there’s good cause for worry about them,” A new study in Food and Chemical Toxicology links pesticide-laced feed to cause tumors and early death in rats. Organic is ideal, but if that’s not possible, pick produce with thick skins that peel off, because they’re less likely to be contaminated.

Drink Water, Yerba Mate, Green Tea

Part of the goal is to pee, poop, and sweat toxins out of your system, you should be drinking 1/2 your body weight in ounces of liquid each day.

Detox Bath

Add 2 cups Epsom Salt to a very hot bath (as hot as you can stand it). Add 1 cup Baking Soda to unfiltered bathwater. Soak for 20 min. And shower in cool water. No perfumed lotions or soap after detoxing. No eating before or after detox bath….just drink lots of water before and after. –I have done this & it works! Years of toxins are released through hands & feet!

Don’t Skimping on Sleep

A good nights sleep is as important as regular exercise and a healthy diet, but it often gets shorted in our busy society. Poor sleep is a big cause of ill health “Consider a sleep reboot where while cleansing and schedule a regular bedtime, avoid late TV, computer, and smartphone activities for at least 45 minutes to 1 hour before bedtime.” Eating Smart Just Got Easier
