I’m a month into my nutritionist-prescribed liver detox and, as this is my first ever detox I’ve learned quite a few things! Not only am I feeling lighter, have softer skin, more energy and even lost a few pounds, I’m also finding that my emotional levels are also improving. I have found that I’m taking more active steps to managing my stress and getting back to my spiritual side. For most of my life I worked almost exclusively on the inner me. I was very spiritual for most of my teens and the better half of my twenties, almost completely neglecting the outer me. When I realized that I needed to make a change, I admit to taking it to the other extreme: I focused exclusively on the outer me. Although I made great strides with my self-talk and way of seeing life, I neglected my spiritual side. Going through this detox has brought this up and left me with an almost urgent need to tip the scales toward the centre. I always say that health is more than just diet and exercise, it’s the health of your body, mind and soul.
