Winter is coming, and you know what that means: cold and flu season. Prepare your immune system to fight back with a fall detox. A build-up of toxins can lead to a host of common illnesses. Ridding the body of these toxic substances may help relieve symptoms, prevent future illness, and increase overall health and vitality. Here’s what you need to know to about a full body detox, so you can reset your defense system and remain healthy all winter long.
What is the best way to do a body detox?
There are many ways to detox, and the “best” approach really depends on your preference. For instance, you may not want to do a traditional juice cleanse or fast. There are plenty of other ways to naturally detoxify the body. Below, we will outline a few options to safely and effectively do a detox. We encourage you to consider all of them or at least a combination for full-body wellness.
Why do I feel tired during a detox?
A detox is a change to your normal dietary and lifestyle routine and, therefore, may cause some mild side effects like fatigue or headache, but every person is different. Always consult with your doctor before beginning a new health regimen or detox and if any side effects persist or worsen.
How can I maintain a healthy immune system?
Diet and exercise are key to a healthy immune system, but they are only the beginning. Other lifestyle changes, such as regular infrared sauna use, provide a wealth of benefits, including immune support. A detox is a great way to jump start these changes.
Does detoxing make you lose weight?
Weight loss is a common goal and result of detoxing, as most detox plans involve eating fresh fruits and veggies and eliminating processed and inflammatory foods. Here, however, we will focus on removing toxins by detoxing, with the goal of preparing your body for winter and cold and flu season. Toxic buildup can actually inhibit weight loss efforts.
How to Detox Safely and Effectively
Sweat in an Infrared Sauna
Sweating is one of the body’s safest and most natural ways to heal and maintain good health. In a sauna detox, your body expels toxic substances, including heavy metals. But not all saunas are created equal. Sunlighten saunas may be up to seven times more effective in helping your body detoxify than a traditional sauna. This is because of our highly efficient and patented Solocarbon far infrared heating technology — the only technology proven to raise core body temperature by two-to-three degrees. This is why renowned detoxification expert, Dr. Dietrich Klinghardt, combines the use of far infrared saunas with the chelating agent DMPS in a heavy metal detox protocol. He states that infrared mobilizes Hg in deeper tissues (3″ down) making infrared saunas an effective solution for removing Hg from the skin.

So many ailments, from chronic fatigue… to stubborn weight… even things like allergies, are connected to heavy metal toxicity. Many people spend thousands of dollars and years of time trying other solutions, which simply cannot work as long as heavy metals (the root cause) are still in your body. Heavy metals are the most damaging substance we’re exposed to—and they’re the hardest to remove. A “hair tissue mineral analysis” (HTMA) test is a great way to find out which metals you have, and how to get rid of them. Heavy metal expert, Wendy Myers, created an amazing resource for understanding and taking the HTMA test. Go here to learn Wendy’s step-by-step process for using a simple hair test to transform your health.

You may have already experienced the healing power of bone broth. It’s packed with both gelatin and glycine, which help restore gut health, repair damage to the intestine and reduce inflammation.
