14-Day Detoxification System by Planet Beach & HOTWORX
Each day you come face to face with potentially damaging toxins. These poisons are in the food you eat, the water you drink, and even in the air that you breathe. Left unchecked, these toxins have the ability to disrupt the natural functions of the body and make you sick. They can affect your digestive system, your circulatory system, and your immune system. If they are not regularly flushed from the body, they will rob you of your health. Fortunately, nature has provided a solution to this toxic problem, detoxification. Detoxification is not a fad diet designed to temporarily shave off a few pounds, though it most certainly will! It is the amazing natural ability of the body to renew and recharge itself. Just as you would spring clean and maintain your home, detoxing cleans and maintains your body.
How does it work? Our body is a complex organism made up of many specialized parts, each with its own unique job to do. When all the parts of your body are functioning properly, you enjoy good health and seemingly boundless energy. However, like any finely tuned machine that relies on proper interactions of its parts, your body requires routine maintenance to ensure against a breakdown. Another thing that your body has in common with a high-performance engine is the need for proper fuel to provide energy, lubrication, and the building blocks required to repair and replace damaged cells. Many of your organs are given the job of converting the food and drink that you digest into a form that your body can use, and they attempt to remove the byproducts of those before they can make you sick. If any of these organs does not efficiently perform its duties, our overall health will decline. A buildup of toxins in the organ may cause it to slow down and its ability to function will be compromised. Any organ that is bombarded by toxins throws the body out of balance, and illness becomes inevitable. The only way to restore the necessary balance is to remove the offending substances via detoxification.
Whether you are young or old, a busy housewife or a high-powered executive, detoxification offers you the same relief from the high-stress, high sugar, high preservative, fast-food dependent, low activity lifestyle that so many people are living today. Do you dare to imagine what impact stress and eating on the run has had on your insides? (Over time the negative effects will not be able to be ignored.) Now is the time to come to your own rescue with a detoxification program to restore cleanliness and health. You will be amazed by the results you will achieve with a little determination and will power!
Allergies, bad skin, body odor or sweating, dependency on sugar, caffeine or alcohol, headaches, lack of energy, and absent-mindedness and confusion are all signs that you need to detoxify! I hope you’re all convinced by now that it’s time to get started, so here’s what you need to know:
What to Eat:
The basic principle of the detox program is to eat 4 to 6 small meals each day made up of healthy, detoxifying foods. The meals should be eaten regularly so that you can maintain your energy and give your body the fiber and nutrients that it needs to cleanse. This program is not meant to deprive you of flavorful, appealing foods, or to feel like a “diet.” On the contrary, choosing and preparing healthy foods can be an enjoyable activity. These foods should have a high content of nutrients and fiber, and the ability to aid your body in its journey to health. Focus on fresh fruits and vegetables, whole grains, nuts and seeds, and lean proteins. During detoxification, you should avoid processed foods, white sugar, white flour, red meat, alcohol, caffeine, and any other “unhealthy” items. Don’t be afraid to experiment with food combinations during your program. There’s no reason why you can’t make these 14 days fun, so mix it up! Try to get all of your food in as fresh a condition as possible. Avoiding pesticides, as well as canned and processed foods will give you the best results. If you find yourself on the go and in need of something quick or even something to satisfy that sweet tooth, quickly mix up one of our Indulge instant meal nutrition shakes!
What to Drink:
Keeping your body well hydrated is always important, considering that it is made up of 80% water, but it becomes especially important during detoxification. Water is what your body will use to flush itself of toxins and impurities and eliminate them. Your goal is to drink at least 3 quarts of water per day. This may seem like a lot of water, and a lot of extra trips to the restroom, but your body will soon adjust and normalize itself to keep your bathroom breaks to a minimum. In addition, you may mix in any of our HydroGo powders to enhance your hydration (Essential Greens, Clean Energy, Heart Healthy, or Antioxidant Essentials)! During detoxification you should avoid sodas, any drink containing added sugars, colors, artificial sweeteners, caffeine or alcohol. Come on guys… it’s only 2 weeks!
You should take three capsules of the Planet Beach Detoxify formula both morning and night with a meal. It is also a good idea to take a high-quality multivitamin each day along with a good source of essential fatty acids (I recommend our Daily Essentials vitamin pack).
As you make your way to better health, find some time to focus on yourself. Any activity that you can do to rest your body or relieve stress will help with the detoxification process. Come to Planet Beach and indulge in a massage and facial followed by enjoying some extra detox in our HOTWORX sauna! It’s important to make time for relaxation, pampering, and light exercise!
