Today’s modern world leaves us full of toxins. There are toxins virtually everywhere – in the food we eat, the water we drink, the cosmetics we use and even in the environment we live in. A natural detoxification is the perfect way to combat the negative side effects of built-up toxins as well as showing you the path to improved health & wellness and a higher quality of life.
Your body naturally reveals when it is time to detoxify through a number of physical symptoms. If you experience chronic fatigue, digestive issues, allergies, stress, inexplainable weight gain and aches and pains for no reason, perhaps it is time to look into a detox program such as the wide variety offered at Santosa Detox & Wellness Center.
Even if you are not experiencing health ailments, supporting your body through a natural detoxification process will help you gain more energy and clarity, clearer skin, maintain a healthy weight and overall leave you feeling rejuvenated and refreshed.
There are tons of things that you can do to encourage your body as it purges toxins from the body, and many of these are small changes that are easy to make and maintain. One thing that you can do is to drink more water. Our liver needs water to help flush toxins through our body and eliminate them. If you are dehydrated, you can become backed up which prevents your body from purging toxins, it also can allow them to absorbed once again into the system. Make sure you are drinking enough water daily to keep things moving.
Take a trip to a steam room or a sauna to get the blood moving and the heart beating. You will benefit from improved toxin release from your tissues into your bloodstream. The heat from the steam room or sauna will help you build up a sweat which also helps your body purge additional toxins through the skin.
Ensuring to get enough exercise is another way to sweat out toxins and boost your metabolism along the way. Our blood and lymphatic systems are stimulated when we move and which helps to purify our blood efficiently and effectively. Exercise is also a great way to get the digestive system back on track. Additionally, the deep breathing from a hard workout is a great way to increase the strength of your lungs and heart.
Another vital way to detoxify your body is to get your diet under control. Eating clean is one of the best way to enhance the body’s natural detoxification process, so choose fresh fruits and vegetables over processed foods, carbohydrates and refined sugars. Focus on eating lean, high-quality proteins as well as whole grains, nuts and various herbs and spices. Try to eat vegan every now and again, and also remember to reduce your alcohol intake.

Welcome to 2018. It is a brand new year, another chance to get it right and start from a clean slate. Don’t let your New Year’s resolutions and best intentions fall to the wayside. Whether you pledge to eat better, exercise more or just live an overall healthier life, 2018 can truly be your year to shine.
In order to live a healthier life, one of the first steps is to evaluate current eating patterns and dietary habits. If your current diet is less than favorable, start by changing the negative to positive. Cut back on sugars and starches, and lose any kind of sugary or carbonated drinks. Instead, replace those with good old-fashioned water and healthy freshly squeezed juices.
Try to eat more green vegetables and cook more at home than dining out. Pay particular attention to the cooking oil you use to prepare your meals and opt for healthier choices such as Olive oil, Sunflower oil, Coconut oil or Rice Bran oil. When meal planning, it is important to keep a healthy balance and focus on the 3 major nutrients: carbs, protein and fat.
Once you are able to sort out your diet, it is time to think about exercise. In order to keep the body fit, it is important to be active. Are you new to an exercise regime? Find an activity that you enjoy and stick with it. Every little bit helps with regard to exercise whether it is jogging, swimming, yoga, HIIT class or a brisk, daily walk, the more you move the fitter you will become.
Feeling ambitious? Join a fitness class of your choice. A fitness class or even the gym is a wonderful place to meet like-minded individuals and build a support network. Don’t be shy when it comes to joining a fitness class. You will feel motivated and everyone in the class, especially the trainer, will be rooting for you to succeed.
Managing stress is also an important part of a healthy lifestyle. Smart ways to manage stress include taking a deep breath and counting to ten. Perhaps you can join a meditation class to help balance the stress. One important thing to remember is that when you are stressed, do not break your new healthy lifestyle by binge eating. Stress eating takes its toll on the body. Not only will you gain weight, and possibly continue to fluctuate, you are also likely to suffer from digestion system dysfunction. Other ways to manage stress are to focus and plan. Get yourself into a routine. Remember it only takes 21 days to form a new habit and condition yourself to make it stick.
Another way to keep up a healthy lifestyle is to participate in a detox once a year. A detox program is a great way to flush the toxins out of your body while resetting your system. While a detox can be challenging, you’ll feel fresh and rejuvenated after. A detox is a wonderful way to keep your healthy lifestyle on track.

Emotions can ruin your health when you an individual becomes unable to control them. For example, think of how one difficult individual can be challenging to deal with and how you feel when this person is around. Chances are you feel upset and defeated. Counteract that with an upbeat, positive individual in your life who shines brightly. Reflect upon how you feel when they are around. Quite frankly, this individual probably brings out the best in you. You feel happy, you feel happy, you feel good.
Toxic emotions can lead to serious health problems. While there are a wide variety of factors that contribute to an individual’s vulnerability to illness, negative emotions tend to play a huge role in whether we live happy, healthy, productive lives or slip into an anxious, stressful pattern that can lead us down a very dark rabbit hole.
What we think about affects us both physically and mentally. This is no secret. In today’s society, expressing our true feelings is often looked down upon. We are taught from a young age to grin and bear it, that when the going gets tough the tough get going. Not being able to feel our feelings has become an epidemic, and not expressing emotions with truth and clarity has taken its toll on many people.
Dealing with toxic emotions can make us irritable. Suppressing strong emotions such as anger and hatred, which are natural, can build up in the mind, body and soul and affect our body’s internal organs as well as natural processes and breed even more negativity and toxic emotions. Toxic emotions cause stress, anxiety and fatigue, high blood pressure, headaches, poor circulation and depression. Toxic emotions are self-sabotaging and when an individual feels overcome, these toxic emotions can ruin the best of opportunities.
If you find yourself overwhelmed by toxic emotions, it is important to understand that you are not alone. Many people around the world have been in your shoes. However, you do not have to let toxic emotions ruin your life. You can rid the negativity from your life through an emotional detox.

If your skin is healthy, you will glow from the inside out. These days it is getting harder and harder to keep skin healthy. We face heavy pollution and environmental factors such as the harsh sun daily. Pair that with the stress of balancing work and family life, along with unhealthy snacking and a massive intake of junk food and having or obtaining skins that glows becomes a difficult concept to achieve.
Most of us use cosmetics to hide blemishes, acne and pimples. However, while makeup can hide these imperfections, a healthy diet will keep them at bay and possibly prevent them from coming back again. If you modify your diet, it is possible to acquire that natural, healthy glow again.
To keep skin in tip top shape, healthy and glowing, fruits and vegetables are the most important food items to consider. In their natural state, fruits and vegetables contain skin-friendly components that help rectify skin problems from the inside out. Fruits and vegetables help to maintain the body’s hydration levels, so not only do they keep the body healthy, but they also aid in replenishing the skin to its gorgeous, glowing state.
Great Food for Glowing Skin
Loaded with antioxidants, dark green leafy vegetables enhance the skin’s natural radiance. Dark green leafy vegetables such as spinach, lettuce, coriander, broccoli, arugula and parsley contain essential vitamins and nutrients that help eradicate skin’s dullness and enhance its glow.
Antioxidant-rich berries such as strawberries, blueberries and raspberries wipe blemishes away from the skin, while mangoes which are rich in vitamin A help to prevent premature aging. Other fantastic fruits for your skin include bananas. Bananas are chockfull of vitamins A, B and E and help prevent premature wrinkles. Papaya clears skin of all impurities and helps you to shed dead skin cells.
Foods that are rich in unsaturated fats and omega-3 and omega-5 fatty acids are essential for providing the skin with a nice dose of natural oils. Natural oils, or good fats, reduce inflammation, acne, redness and scaly skin. Nuts such as almonds, walnuts and hazelnuts are good for your skin, and if you are a fish eater, the best types of fish for your skin include salmon, tuna and trout.
It is no secret that carrots are good for your eyes, but they also do wonders for the skin! Carrots contain high levels of beta-carotene, vitamin A and antioxidants. They help keep skin healthy by flushing out toxins. Carrots also protect skin from damage induced by the sun, which in turn prevents premature aging and wrinkles.
Avocados are delicious, but they are also really good for the skin. They are high in vitamin E which helps slow down skin-damaging process. Avocados also help the skin to retain moisture which brings about a healthy glow.
Water, and lots of it, keeps the skin supple and clear. However, if you must drink something besides water, green tea is a safe choice. It is rich in antioxidants and helps to combat the free radicals that are formed when the skin is exposed to the sun’s UV rays. Green tea also lowers levels of DTH, the acne-producing hormone, which leaves the skin healthier and younger looking.
If you have a sweet tooth, make sure to satisfy it with dark chocolate. The antioxidants in dark chocolate protect the skin from free radicals keeping it soft and young. Dark chocolate also helps protect the skin from sunburns, which is important to know on a beautiful tropical island like Phuket.
