At 40 years of age, I've never detoxed.
To be honest with you, I've never felt to desire to detox. Most of my 'serial' detox friends seem to either just not drink alcohol for a period of time and call it detoxing, or they don't do the research properly or have a plan and just eat Kale (and whatever else happens to be the trendy superfood of the month).
There's tea in the supermarket isle called 'Detox' tea. Surely, if I drink that, and that only, I'll be cleansed in about 2 weeks. WRONG. Firstly, I wouldn't last, and secondly, that wouldn't be good for my body at all.
I've noticed changes in my body over the last 12 months. It's like my vehicle needs a service of a different kind. I'm keeping it oiled and cool, and drive it regularly so it doesn't rust or my battery doesn't die, but that's not enough.
So tonight, I'm going to a detox discussion led by the wonderful and knowledgable Dr Natasja Fox (TM) who will be teaching us all how to detox properly and safely. A 90 minute discussion where I'll be sitting in the front row (the nerd that I am) jotting everything down everything she says in my notebook. If I could record the entire thing I would.
I'll start my detox next Monday, and I'll record my journey here on this blog. All the pain and heartache (I do love my daily coffee and chocolate SO much) and all the pleasant and interesting discoveries. Don't worry I'll leave the really personal bits out.
Very exciting. See you next week.
