I’m sure you’ve heard of detox diets or cleanses before. Let’s be honest here, there’s so many brands selling us the detox dream, I’ve been there, tried it and I have to be honest I was quite disappointed with the results. There’s so many different ways to ‘detoxify’ your body now, it’s really hard to know where to go or what to believe! This is the reason I’m writing this post because I have found a detox that has worked! I only ever discuss or talk about brands/topics/items I truly believe in and I’ve tested. In my opinion, someone’s experience is far more valuable than any marketing sell, obviously it can be subjective if it’s coming from a person’s opinion, but I believe their experience will help inform you and make the decision a little easier.
About three months ago I was having issues with my stomach. I had a really strange empty feeling in my stomach. It felt like I was starving even though I had just eaten. I even thought I was pregnant at one point, but thankfully it wasn’t the case. I couldn’t work it out. My skin was horrific, extremely spotty and dry. I kept getting ill constantly. Every week I was either ill or low on energy. Honestly I’ve never been so ill in just a few months. I didn’t understand what was going on until I went to The Organic Pharmacy for a Luna cleanse, a new treatment for mind and body renewal.
On the 18th January, I met with a practitioner to have a Vitamin and Mineral Health assessment. I wasn’t sure what to expect when I arrived at The Organic Pharmacy in Carnaby Street. I was greeted by a really lovely woman who escorted me to a small room to have a consultation. She started asking questions about myself, my health and my diet. After this evaluation, she put a headband on me along with some other bands with wires around my ankles and arms to measure the vitamins and minerals in my body. It was a little bit Frankenstein inspired, but it totally worth it as I was shocked by the results.
In summary, she found my level of toxicity was high, therefore a good detox was in order. She also found I was lacking Essential Fatty Acids, Vitamin D, Glucose, Magnesium, Potassium and Bowel Flora. She talked me through in detail what this all meant and then prescribed me supplements to help me. The way I had been feeling the past few months, plus my stomach issues all made sense.
After this, I went into another room to have a lower body treatment using green coffee and chilli oil. This treatment was absolutely incredible! Very intense, so if you like a firm massage then you will like this. The techniques used in this treatment helped kick start the cleanse, by reducing bloating and stimulating the flow of lymph and micro circulation.
After this treatment, I felt a release. I can’t forget when the woman was massaging my back, my nose unblocked and I felt a wave of release. It was incredible!
I started my detox and cleanse treatment at home, by taking x2 detox, x2 Essential Fatty Acids, x2 Super antioxidants, x3 Phytonutrients capsules a day and 20 drops of Liver and Kidney Drops daily. This detox will remove impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin.
I’m not claiming to be a health expert, but I do know that I genuinely feel better within myself and I truly have noticed a huge difference to my skin, tummy and energy.
One thing I’ve learnt throughout this process, is that when we abuse our bodies (which I did by drinking and eating terrible food), it will be detrimental to the way you look and feel. Caring for our bodies inside and out is so important. I made a commitment to myself a year ago to learn to love my body for what it is. For years, I battled with my body. I have starved myself, made myself sick and i’ve abused it. Treat your body with kindness because it’s the only one we have.
If you’re looking for a good detox treatment, I genuinely recommend the Luna Cleanse, Vitamin and Mineral test, plus the detox system at the Organic Pharmacy. It’s done wonders for me and I’m so grateful I found it when I did.
