It seems to be a very natural habit for human beings to cleanse and detox their bodies. We may do weekly or monthly detoxes or cleanse our bodies at the start of a new season. It all really depends on how you personally think and feel. Just as the sea regularly cleanses itself by removing waste so do we. Remember, we are made of up to 70% of water so it is probably just something we have in common with the Ocean! ☺
Signs that your body is screaming at you for a detox!
- Often waking up in the morning feeling tired and pretty much remaining like that for the rest of the day definitely means that your body could do with a colon cleanse
- Frequent bouts of constipation could mean that you require a colon cleanse to rid built up toxins. Try adding a lot more raw veggies and fruits to your diet. Vitamin supplements are also a great way of adding what your body needs for healthy functioning
- Brain fog or inabity to focus - If you consistently find that you lack the ability to focus and find yourself drifting off in a mental fog, your body could be screaming for a detox. It has been said that a candida cleanse alone can restore clarity, focus, and concentration by ridding your body of excessive and damaging candida fungus
- Feeling a bit down in the dumps could be the result of eating foods that are of low-quality or even toxic to the body The problem is that when you start to make changes to your diet to include more life-giving foods, the toxins will block the nutrients (as sad as that sounds) from finding their way to your brain. Toxins have a way of nestling into the body and can remain there unless acted upon. In this case a body detox could help your mind back to the right space!
- If you are still overweight after numerous attempts at weight-loss programs, and you often feel like you are fighting an uphill battle in the weight-loss department, this could be due to a build-up of toxins in your body, preventing all the good nutrients and vitamins from being absorbed and working with your body in the correct healthy way. We recommend using a natural weight-loss remedy and detox drops so that both can work in harmony with each other for the best weight-loss results!

Some people drink this up to 3 times in a day!
- Fasting for a day, once a week can be very cleansing and rejuvenating! You can fast for 12 hours or 24 hours – depending on how you feel. Some people find benefit in a liquid fast (using Yogi Teas or pressed juices and no solid food), while others prefer a complete fast
