Natural aesthetician, health guru and founder of organic skincare range, Bareskin Beauty, Juliette Scarfe tells you to ditch the fad diet and detox your body on a daily basis to stay young and fresh.
Our bodies naturally detoxify every day as part of a normal bodily process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions to eliminate and neutralise toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymphatic system and skin. Life in the 21st century is full of stress and environmental toxicity. We have over 100,000 toxic chemicals in our environment that interact with our cell biology on a daily basis. These toxins make their way into our bodies via the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe and the environments we live and work in.
WHAT IS A TOXIC BODY?
Our chemical-rich diet – containing an abundance of processed foods, vegetable oils, trans fats, non-organic foods, caffeine and alcohol – radically changes our internal ecosystem.
Toxin build-up in the body accelerates aging and leads to dull, lifeless, wrinkled and irregularly pigmented skin.
Body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. This toxic accumulation causes inflammation and damage that leads to chronic disease and abnormal brain and nervous system activity.
Our body tries to protect us from dangerous substances by surrounding these compounds with mucous and fat cells to avoid the toxins reaching our vital organs and triggering an immune response that the body is under attack. You can carry up to 15 extra pounds of mucous that harbours this waste – therefore, weight loss is futile without fi rst detoxifying the body. The fat cells will not be reduced inside, unless the toxins they encase are purged.
A lifestyle built around daily detoxifying strategies and periodic deep cellular cleansing is essential to achieve optimal health in the modern world. Deep cleansing can revitalise your system and rid your body of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites.
The digestive, kinetic energy and immune systems all compete for energy. When we eat during the day, we drive energy to our digestive system and away from our immune system. This is especially true if we are eating low-energy foods, such as sugars and other processed foods.
Low-energy foods and other environmental toxins cause a blockage in the digestive system and eliminatory organs.
