Spring detox - where to start to cleanse the body?

What is detox? It’s a method of removing toxins from the body that cause, among other things, a feeling of heaviness, fatigue and indigestion. Detox, also known as de-acidification of the body, is a great way to prepare your body for spring and summer!




Why should we detox?


It’s worth detoxing the body in order to eliminate many negative side effects of an unhealthy lifestyle, such as headaches, insomnia, concentration disorders, indigestion, allergies and apathy.

What causes acidification of the body and what are the symptoms?


A common cause of acidification of the body is the consumption of excessive amounts of acidic products.

The typical symptoms of acidification of the body include:


✓ reduced immunity
✓ difficulty in losing weight
✓ joint and muscle pains
✓ feelings of heaviness
✓ headaches
✓ fatigue
✓ heartburn


Fortunately, acidification of the body is a reversible process. You’’ just need to make a few changes in your diet and lifestyle to effectively de-acidify your body.


What is the best way to go about it? What steps to take so that our body is ready to keep up with us?


Here's how to go about detox to rejuvenate your body and gain vitality. You can de-acidify the body in two ways - by concentrating on appropriate food and drink.

Let’s start with food. You can start detoxing the body by including alkaline products such as groats (buckwheat, millet), nuts, fresh vegetables and fruit in the diet. It would be good to start incorporating olive oil into your diet and replacing caffeinated coffee with decaf. When de-acidifying the body, it is important to limit salt, sugar, dairy products, alcohol and, as already mentioned, caffeine. You can follow an alkaline diet that is based on specific fruits and vegetables in appropriate amounts.


Focusing on drinks/hydration in the context of detoxifying your body, you’ll want to become good friends with water. It is very important to drink 2-3 liters of fluid a day. Still water, mineral water or drinking tea with herbs that aid digestion (horsetail, nettle, cistus, mint) is recommended.



When detoxing your body it’s important to keep in mind that diet isn't everything. Along with your diet, it is very important to exercise, get enough sleep, reduce stress and, preferably, give up stimulants such as alcohol or cigarettes. Eating about 4-5 meals a day at similar intervals is a great solution for the body. When we regularly supply it with energy, it is used to ensure the proper functioning of all organs.

Preventive examinations


Preventive examinations are worth mentioning, especially if we want to correctly approach our spring detox.


Before we start cleansing the body, it’s good to have some basic blood tests done to make sure that we are doing fine and can go ahead with our detox. Preventive examinations will allow us to find out about possible irregularities or deficiencies that may adversely affect our health.



Diet change with dieticians


After performing preventive examinations, it is important to match your new diet to the needs of your body and lifestyle. Nowadays, you can find a lot of diet guides on the internet. There is so much information that it's hard not to get lost. It’s good to receive some clarity on these things from a certified specialist and be off to a good start.



A diet fit to your test results and your daily routine, will allow you to safely approach your spring detox. A dietician will guide you in the right direction. They’ll help choose a diet enriched with nutrients, suggest exercises and supplements in the case of deficiencies, for example iron, vitamin D3 or Omega 3.

A proper diet can work wonders


That is why it is so important to fit it to the needs of your body and lifestyle. We have a list of appropriate products and nutrients that we are to incorporate into our diet - what now? We can ask our dietitian for a detailed menu of meals and instructions on how to prepare them.


This will facilitate us reaching our goal. However, there are ready-made solutions such as catering companies that deliver just what we need to our door - no assembly required!

Boxed meals or catering services have meals prepared with the help of dietitians. They have a calculated calorific value and are tailored to our needs. That is, if we are vegan, vegan or lactose intolerant, or we want to detox - there is a diet tailored to it that is simple and convenient!
