“Why detox?” “What is detox?” “Do children really need a detox?” “I thought I read somewhere that juicing wasn’t good for kids…”
All valid questions. Questions that are probably running through your mind as you stumbled across this site. Questions that I myself had at one point in time years ago and even at various times throughout our journey.
Detoxing isn’t just about juicing or even solely food and diet related. Detoxing can pertain to removing any negative thing from your life; whether it be diet related or products that are used in our daily life such as cleaning items and personal care. Detoxing may include removal of electronics, cutting back on TV time, ditching negative people, stressful situations, harmful noises and the list goes on. As stated on the home page, I really like the definition of detoxing as getting rid of the poison or the effects of poison & even more so the definition of poison: a substance that tends to destroy life or impair health; something (or someone) harmful to one’s happiness or well-being. Detoxing the poisons in our life and our family’s life is about so much more than food. Or juice. It is about removing the poisons in our life…the toxins & chemicals that are destroying our health, our happiness, our children’s happiness and over all well-being.
We often think of detoxing as an adult topic, one of those New Year Resolution type deals that we intend to carry out, juice for “x” number of days and clean our livers, blah, blah, blah. But really it can pertain to anyone, including children and most definitely is not limited to a juicing cleanse. Children are bombarded everyday by almost everything around them and the levels are at a much higher concentration than we adults deal with. Children are still in their developmental and growing stages, many of the effects of the chemicals and products today have not had any long term studies at all. Considering the devestating effects that the few toxins that have been studied have shown to cause, any parent should be horrified and jump at the idea of detoxing their child’s life and even better their entire family’s way of life. Does your child seem to be losing their natural joy as they get older? There are multitudes of studies that prove our toxic way of life is most likely to blame. We all could benefit from less toxins in our lifestyles.
Many of us are aware of the dangers in today’s food supply; at least from the pesticides used and GMO’s if nothing else. Unfortuately, the toxins we are exposed to extend far beyond the food we eat and are found in everything from our clothing, to personal care items, bed linens, cleaning items, to the air we breathe and other daily encounters. Let me help you weed through all the information flooding the web and find the journey that will lead you and your family to a healthier, happier life. Transforming our families one step at a time.
