Getting ready for a healthy winter with a mild autumn detox!
Now that we deal with our health in a much more aware manner than in the past, we are also extra alert to the need to keep our body’s natural resistance fully topped up. For this reason, it is a good idea as preparation for the coming winter to give yourself a mild detox cure during the autumn months. In combination with a healthy diet, this is the best way to get ready to combat all those winter colds and chills!
Our modern way of living means that our digestive tract is often overloaded and overworked. Much of today’s food is processed and we eat too much fat, too much meat and too many sugars, as well as consuming too much coffee and alcohol… To make matters worse, environmental pollution and heavy medication often add extra toxic substances to our system. Likewise, too little exercise, too much sitting and too much stress and pressure are all bad for the digestion and simply compound the problem.
All the waste and ballast products in our body are discharged via the liver and the intestines. Our kidneys filter our blood and separate out the harmful substances. However, this natural purification mechanism is not always able to deal with the sheer amount of waste that it is often asked to process. When this happens, it can cause complaints such as tiredness, colds, mental dips and general listlessness. To prevent this, undergoing a detox cure in the autumn is a good plan!
Biotona bio Phyto-Detox®
Especially for this kind of detox cure, Biotona has developed its Phyto-Detox® powder, based on a number of plants that have been known for centuries to have a beneficial effect on the liver, kidneys and digestion. In combination with a healthy diet, this powder stimulates the purification of your body and helps to restore both your physical and mental balance. Current scientific research is also devoting much attention to the effect of the herbs and plants used in Biotona bio Phyto-Detox®.
Biotona bio Phyto-Detox® contains the powders of milk thistle and artichoke leaves, which support the liver’s purifying function, as well as curcuma (turmeric) that stimulates the digestion and the single-cell green water alga chlorella that is packed with beneficial phytonutrients. As if all that were not enough, there is also a powder of wheat grass juice and yacon (or sunroot), which contains more than 40% of soluble fibres that are crucial for the absorption of minerals and the optimisation of the intestinal flora.
Eat typical autumn products – organic, of course! – that are easy to combine with a detox cure. This includes beets, cabbages, pumpkin, sweet potato, broccoli, berries, apples and pears. Green vegetables like spinach, pak choi and watercress are also highly recommended.
During your detox cure, make sure that you get enough sleep, drink enough water and do not consume any alcohol. A dose of MCT oil in the morning can help you to maintain your focus. Taking a relaxing salt bath each day also helps to boost the effect of your cure.
You can purify your body all year round. Read here for more about detox cures in the spring:
