Hi Jazzy, i have been contemplating the thought of doing one of those detox programs. I think your b/f could be onto something. I mean, it makes sense to have a complete clean out b/c then your bodily organs should be able to work at optimum performance.
Only problem is that i don't know if i could survive a proper detox program. I eat very healthy, but i do like my cups of tea and the odd sweet biscuit here and there. But i'm slowly consuming less of the 'bad' stuff in preparation for the detox, just so it doesn't hit me like a brick when i seriously do the program.
Actually, a cleans is good also b/c even though you eat healthy and do all the right things, sometimes the liver and other organs can get bogged down so that your body isn't absorbing all the nutrients from all the good foods you might be eating. I got this way some years back when i had a bad case of candida in my stomach. My liver was virtually on it's way out until i did a one special diet program.
OK, i think between me reading your post and typing up my reply, i've convinced myself to take this more seriously and actually do something about it. Thanks for the little push
