Cleansing for summer

Spring is well under way and summer is fast approaching. So if you've been slacking over winter, now is your best chance to kick the comfort foods and bad habits and make a change. When the weather starts to warm up it's generally natural for us to lean towards lighter foods and more water, if you're having trouble kicking bad habits, a detox may be your best option to get back on the right track.

Lemon Detox is an effective way to reset your eating habits and get rid of cravings, which can be the biggest hurdle when trying to clean up your eating. 
The 7 day cleanse is the most popular and effective, and the 14 day cleanse is best for seasoned detoxers. If you want more flexibility, the 50:50 cleanse or relaxed version is also an option.

When can you NOT do the detox

The detox is an all natural program and very safe, however there are a few circumstances in which it is not safe.

  1. Pregnant and breastfeeding mothers - due to the nature of the detox, it is not recommended to undertake the lemon detox while pregnant or lactating. While detoxing, the toxins in your body are released into your blood stream, this can then pass on these toxins to baby through either the placenta or the milk.
  2. Type 1 diabetics - due to the high fructose content of the lemon detox it is not recommended to undertake the detox if you are type one diabetic. Type 2 diabetics should consult their doctor before undertaking the program.
  3. Medication - if you are taking medication, a doctor should be consulted beforehand to ensure that there is no risk in detoxing. 
  4. High blood pressure - the detox is safe to do if you have high blood pressure, the salt water drink should be omitted and replaced with senna tea. If medication is taken for blood pressure, a doctor should be consulted first.
