Needing to detox is a thing!
Sometimes people can have negative connotations with the idea of a detox diet.
But it’s not all nonsense. Studies have revealed that exposure to and accumulation of toxins play a significant role in cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity. In addition one’s dietary intake and environmental influences may have large bearing on the incidence of chronic disease. Therefore it would make sense that a protocol to reduce toxins whilst using food and supplements are used to enhance detoxification in the body (1).
However, just like other systems in the body, it sometimes needs some extra love and care.
Factors like genetics, chronic stress, unhealthy habits, certain health conditions physical inactivity and a diet high in refined sugars or processed foods contribute to increased production of toxins within the body and a poorer clearance of toxins.
Toxins come from everywhere. The body produces them like lactic acid and wastes are made by gut microbes. There are the toxins we ingest such as medication, pesticides, mercury in fish, alcohol or air pollution. Regardless, whatever the toxin, it needs to be processed or a person will get sick.
A poor detox program is one that is difficult to implement, low calories, few nutrients and teaches a person nothing. But they are not all like that.
What is a good detox program?
- It recommends removing highly processed foods and foods which are more likely to cause negative reactions in the body such as dairy, gluten and red meat.
- It encourages eating foods that help the organs involved in detoxification such as broccoli and cabbage for the liver, or fibre foods for the bowels.
- It will help reduce the likelihood of a leaky gut and improve the gut microbiome.
- It will further encourage the eating of foods that are high in antioxidants. This helps reduce oxidative stress and inflammation.
- It may recommend specific nutrients known to boost liver or kidney function.
- It will go beyond diet and address lifestyle. Lifestyle choices can support detoxification, the most obvious being exercise or they can hinder it such as poor sleep habits.
- It will teach the person how to avoid and minimise toxins. For example, in reducing your toxic exposure you would want to be avoiding Teflon nonstick pans and instead opt for stainless steel or glass.
