We believe that staying healthy comes from everyday habits. There is no quick-fix detox that will correct a lifetime of unhealthy eating. Certainly, a 7-day juice fast will make you feel better at the end of the week, but it won’t offset the damage caused if you’ve been making poor food choices for years. For every year you have eaten too much protein, grains, sugar, dairy, processed foods, stimulants and man-made chemicals, you need to allow one month to detox. Vegus Foods have devised a Detox Plan to help you restore good health, gain more energy and to achieve a greater sense of wellbeing.
How to Lose Weight
There was a study conducted that showed that sulforaphane helps weight loss by making white fat cells ‘browner’ in their behaviour. So if your health concern is to lose weight, make sure you buy Broccoli Sprout juice or Broccoli Sprout + Beetroot Juice to include in your detox plan. We recommend following our:
Detox Plan for life
1. Drink Vegetable Juices
Make drinking vegetable juice a daily habit – they are very detoxing and give you nutrients in an easily digestible form so your body can start rebuilding damaged cells. Vegus Juices are ready-to-drink and easy to start drinking everyday.
2. Eat Raw, Alkaline Food
Make at least 80% of what you eat alkaline-forming. For a full list click here. Alkaline forming foods reduce strain on the body and help it remove acidity stored in your fat so they can also help you lose weight. Make some of this raw and you’re giving the body a massive boost in nutrients so it can start to rebuild damaged cells, so helping longevity.
3. Eat Less Toxic Foods
Reduce foods that provoke a biochemical reaction in the body, such as caffeine and alcohol, because they put the body in a continual state of stress and cause hormone imbalance. Avoid foods with ingredients that don’t look like food, such as artificial sweeteners and MSG which put a huge strain on the body and inhibit the healing process when sick.
4. Drink Quality Water
Drink plenty of filtered water – make sure the pH is over 7 – which helps the kidneys remove stored toxins when you are detoxing.
5. Move Your Body
Move around a lot in any way you choose – this stimulates the lymph glands which help to destroy bacteria, infections and diseased cells, so detoxing the body.
6. Healing from the Sun
Appreciate the healing powers of the sun! Get plenty of sunshine without burning, so that the body can produce Vitamin D which actually kills off unwanted bacteria, viruses, fungus and parasites, along with diseased cells. The action of sweating also helps removes toxins through the skin.
7. Relax and Breathe
Spend time at the end of each day just being silent; empty your mind and breathe deeply, which will help you sleep better. Stress suppresses the immune system which means that toxins are less easily removed from the body and the body works extra hard at night to remove toxins so by relaxing, you’re giving it a head start.
Start Detoxing Now!
The list above describes an ideal way of living which may seem overwhelming. We suggest you start with a few easy steps to detoxing:
- Drink a tube of Vegus Juices everyday.
- Eat salad or extra piece of fruit each day.
- Stop eating one food you eat regularly that contains ingredients you don’t recognise.
- Start the day with a glass of water.
- Spend 15 minutes moving around, e.g. move to your favourite music.
- Go outside when the sun is shining and enjoy the sunlight on your skin.
- Spend 10 minutes at the end of the day thinking of absolutely nothing!
“I started drinking Vegus Juices when I had…. [the 1939 Cancer Act forbids us from posting the full testimonial] but found that one of the wonderful side effects of drinking this juice was that my skin became so clear and I had more energy. Now I’m better, but vanity drives me to keep drinking these juices each day – I have one of each – [wheatgrass and broccoli sprout] but I also notice I have less energy when I forget to re-order.
