The Rosé flowed a little too easily this summer so I am looking for some ways to detox and head into the fall feeling healthy and fresh. I asked my naturopath (whom I love by the way in case you're looking for a good one in Seattle) gave me some ideas on how to detoxify from eating poorly and drinking too much vino all summer. Here are a few of her recommendations....
1. Dry skin brushing
3. Hot shower
4. Epsom salt bath (20-30 minutes w/ 1-2 cups Epsom salt)
5. Detox tea
6. Drink more water (more than 1/3 of your body weight in ounces)
8. Exercise (sweat!)
10. Some type of a cleanse
There are lots of different cleanses available nowadays. There is of course the controversial "Master Cleanse" which I tried years ago after some friends raved about their results (glowing skin and increased energy to name a few). I think I made it about 8 long hours before realizing there was no chance in hell I could make it a full day, let alone 10. There are cleanses where you do a juice fast, elimination diets, raw food only, various shake versions, and more. Click here to see a detox menu that Gwyneth posted on Goop which seems a little more manageable since there's food involved. I've also heard good things from my friend Tara about the Thorne cleanse.
Have you done a cleanse? If so, which one and what did you think of it? Do you have any favorite detoxification methods? Do share!
