Detox for the body is important for the liver, kidneys, and gallbladder, as well as our colon. We can build up an abundance of toxins and nasty stuff, so our body needs to rid itself of that so it won’t cause disease later.

I just finished a 7 day detox, and I will be honest, it was the first time I have done a detox. I feel so much better after the fact, but it was tough for me. I struggled with cutting out the coffee in the morning, and had a headache the first 2 days. After that, it was better, but I felt I was lacking some energy. It really made me aware how much I rely on caffeine in the morning, and that is something I really had to look at.

I did finish out the 7 days, which was important for me to finish out on what I had committed to, even though I wanted to quit early. It was a great experience, and I would encourage a detox maybe yearly. It also forced me to realize that I didn’t eat quite as healthy as I thought I did, so I am looking for ways to add more veggies into my diet, and I will be posting some recipes on this site. What are some detox programs you have tried? How did you do??


Wellness is very important to me, not just what I eat, but the whole person. It is vital to take care of my mind, my soul, my body, and my emotions. I am on a journey to do this, and I would like to share it with you!
