Detox Like a Pro: Ways to Support Your Body During a Detox

Detox Like a Pro: Ways to Support Your Body During a Detox

Are you finding yourself low on energy and fatigued during your detox this year? Rest assured, this is completely normal. Energy levels can vary between individuals, some encounter much more fatigue while others may even feel more energised. Some people may also experience headaches, brain fog and general feelings of being ‘under the weather’ whilst detoxing. These are all normal symptoms and are actually a sign that your detox is working!

Adverse symptoms during a detox is a side effect of changing habits to provide nutritional support for the body's reset to its natural ability to detoxify. The metabolic processes and chemical adjustments that occur during a detox, such as the elimination of accumulated toxins from your cells, demand more energy, nutrients and generally more effort than normal. 

It’s an energy-intensive process but you can do things to support your body along its way. Be gentle on yourself, consider taking extra rest, hydrate well, and look forward to the reward of a detoxified body and renewed vitality. Keep reading for tips on how you can support yourself to help alleviate any adverse effects from your detox. 

Rest & Relax

Ensuring quality sleep and rest is crucial during a detox, supporting cellular repair, metabolic and hormone regulation, and optimal detoxification processes. Similar to feeling fatigued and irritable without enough sleep in general, inadequate rest during a detox may lead to exhaustion. It's okay to acknowledge the need for extra sleep and consider incorporating naps or adjusting bedtime. Practicing self-kindness, indulge in pampering activities like gentle massages, saunas, or steam rooms, which can aid toxin elimination and contribute to overall well-being. Prioritise self-care—your body will thank you for it!

Keep Hydrated

As your body undergoes a reset and eliminates various toxins, hydration becomes essential for the process. Increased thirst is an indicator that your body is engaged in detoxification, but it also indicates that you could be dehydrated. Dehydration can make you feel sluggish and fatigued so increase your water intake and try adding some lemon for extra liver-cleansing benefits.

Gentle Exercise

Exercise supports detoxification by enhancing circulation and the lymphatic system, whilst improving liver function, aiding digestion, and reducing stress. Choose low-impact exercise, such as yoga, walking, and stretching during your detox, you will still receive the benefits whilst making sure you don't put too much stress on your body whilst it's doing its important work. Furthermore, make an effort to spend time outdoors and in nature, especially considering we are still in the colder winter season. A lack of vitamin D and limited exposure to nature can both contribute to lower energy levels and mood.

Stay Positive

Mindset is an important aspect of any habitual or lifestyle change and can affect our mood and energy levels day to day. Don’t be too hard on yourself if you eat something you shouldn’t or if you’re too tired to do a certain chore, instead, praise yourself for what you have achieved so far no matter how big or small and know that you’re well on your way to achieving your healthy goals for the year.

Vitamins & Minerals – The Building Blocks of Health

Vitamins and minerals are essential for overall health, supporting specific bodily processes. Vitamins, organic compounds, are crucial for specific functions, often not produced by the body. Minerals, equally important, play diverse roles, including maintaining pH levels and producing red blood cells. Your body is working especially hard during the detox process, so ensure that you get adequate vitamins and liver-supporting minerals that will support your body whilst improving your overall well-being. Incorporate wholesome foods into your diet such as healthy whole grains, legumes, nuts & seeds, leafy greens, an array of bright vegetables and plenty of berries to ensure a balanced intake of essential vitamins and minerals.
