You might be wondering why a red tea detox is important, and you’re probably curious about what this process will do for your body. You already know that a good detox will help you jump-start weight loss, but there’s a lot more to it than shedding excess weight.
Toxins play a big part in many physical, mental, and emotional problems that are so common that we have a tendency to chalk them up to “getting older” or “just a normal part of life.” Many of these issues are inter-related, and some have a direct link to obesity. Some of the following problems can be caused by toxins (or worsened by them) and might apply to you:
- Mood swings
- Low energy
- Difficulty concentrating
- Muscle and/or joint pain
- Lower back pain
- Fatty liver disease
- Carpal tunnel syndrome
- Chronic fatigue
- Premature aging
- Digestive issues like diarrhea, bloating, and constipation
- Food allergies
Skin conditions such as acne
How is this possible? Long story short, toxins affect the way cells function and over time, they can change cell structure as well. Consider cancer, which is often associated with toxins that the sufferer has come into contact with, and you can see the connection.
We’ve been conditioned to accept toxins in various forms, and to believe that they’re a necessary part of modern life. Living with toxic buildup has been normalized despite the fact that people are fatter and sicker than ever before. Even though people in western nations are living longer, we’re also subject to chronic illnesses that were once rare.
While the body has built-in mechanisms for eliminating toxins (sweating, urination, defecation, and even crying are among them), natural detoxification just isn’t enough. Regularly detoxing with red tea can change your life by reversing symptoms including those associated with obesity – and that’s why I’ve designed this detox to have such a huge focus on dieting to get rid of excess fat.
Understanding the Body’s Detoxification System
Your body absorbs nutrients and toxins every time you eat, drink, breathe, and come into contact with certain things. For example, you absorb sunlight to get the vitamin D that you need, and you breathe to get the oxygen that’s vital to life. Your skin, lungs, and digestive system are among the largest routes for eliminating toxins, too.
The liver, kidneys, bladder, gall bladder, small intestine, and colon play important roles in eliminating toxins, as does your skin. Your lungs push toxins out when you exhale, and your skin eliminates toxins whenever you sweat.
The more toxins you are exposed to, the greater your toxic load and the more you’ll notice side effects like the ones listed above. The good news is that giving your body a break by following a clean diet, using herbs to support your detox, and taking time out to rest can completely change the way you feel and look.
You may have heard that detox comes with side effects, and this is definitely true. Depending on how toxic your system is, you may find yourself dealing with headaches, skin rashes, nausea, irritability, diarrhea, fatigue, and even difficulty sleeping as all the chemicals make their way out of your system.
All too often, cleansing and detoxing is placed on the same level as deprivation. Our minds have difficulty wrapping themselves around the concept of voluntary suffering, which is why I’ve gone to great lengths to make this process about delicious food and drinks instead of cabbage soup, endless plates of boring kale, or scary caffeine colonics.
I’m not saying that you won’t encounter difficulty, because change of any kind can feel challenging. But with the help of my diet and red tea, you can jumpstart your health, reboot your metabolism, and get on the road to outstanding health so that you feel fantastic faster than you might imagine.
This detox isn’t just about removing the bad stuff we discussed earlier. It’s also about putting good stuff back into your body so that you feel vibrant, alive, and joyful. It’s about dealing with insulin spikes and food addictions that weigh you down, and it’s about changing your relationship with yourself so that your health becomes a priority rather than an afterthought.
This is where red tea comes in.
The herbs in my red tea help you keep your energy up during detox, and it makes unpleasant side effects less difficult to deal with. It also helps you stay very well hydrated so that your body feels free to flush toxins rather than hold onto them as it does whenever you are even a little bit dehydrated. The taste of the red tea is pleasant and you can enjoy it in different ways, tricking your mind into believing that you’re enjoying a treat when in fact you are using medicinal herbs to support a total body cleansing process.
Red tea is about self-nurturing. It is simple and delicious, and it will help you clear the crud and get your body back to its natural state of well-being quickly. In the next chapter, you’ll learn more about the connection between detox and weight loss – and you’ll be more than motivated to get stated with this life-changing process.
