Today's Topic: Detoxing
How do you want our listeners to understand the word “detox” and how it applies to their bodies? (6:37)
1. ”How do you know it’s time for a detox?” (9:40)
Megan and Alex have a super easy quiz for this!! Click here to take it and see if it’s time for a detox!
2. A past episode we chatted about some daily detox tools and it was a really popular episode, so we are curious… what are each of your favorite detox tools or maybe some of your favorites that you use daily? (15:00)
Megan’s faves: dry skin brushing, contrast showers, liquid chlorophyll, detox bath Alex’s faves: contrast showers, acupuncture mat, milk thistle (Nature’s Answer alcohol free tincture – this is an advanced detox tool), tongue scraping, oil pulling, bentonite clay masks
3. I’d love to know how long it takes to detoxify your body from toxins that have built up (alcohol, preservatives, gluten etc)? Does it depend on length of time consuming those things or do our bodies all detoxify at about the same time once the item has been removed? (22:24)
4. How do you avoid getting trapped into detoxing - such as a 3-day juice cleanse, 5-day fast, etc… How effective are these or how much do they negatively affect us? (27:03)
5. What should I look for when choosing a detox plan? Any red flags that signal a not-so-hot protocol? (29:30)
