Lots of people right now are probably half way through their detox period. Some may have even jetted off somewhere warm and sunny and are getting juices and smoothies brought to them by the side of a pool, or after they have done a morning yoga session. Ahhh, lucky things aren't they!
Or, some really motivated people are getting up every day and doing morning exercise sessions then making a big fresh juice or smoothie.
Guess what, none of those ways are what I have been doing! I have been finishing off writing my book and haven't made enough effort to start the year really healthily.
I like things easy, I will admit that and I know lots of other people do too.
I have three things I want to tell you about which will help you to feel and look better, as well as having a detoxification effect on the body - and they wont cost you an arm and a leg either.
The first thing I want to tell you about is a very very fun way to exercise. One that is proven to be one of the best forms of exercise and one that you will want to keep doing. And the best part of it is, you arent meant to do much of it in the beginning, so only a few minutes a day. So for lazy bones, you wont have to get yourself into anything too strenuous.
So, this magical exercise routine is........rebounding! That is, bouncing up and down on a mini trampoline which you can more than likely fit in any house.
Rebounding has been long known of by NASA to have incredible benefits on the human body. It also happens to be super fun, you WILL feel better as soon as you start bouncing because it a) makes you feel like a kid b) increases happy hormones throughout the body. Honestly, nothing is more fun than rebounding I think!
The most efficient and effective exercise yet devised by man” - NASA
Jason Vale is famous for being "The Juice Master'' and he also happens to really love rebounding. In fact, it's always part of his daily exercise routine and for those that get to go on his juicing retreats. Jason has his own range of rebounders that have been said to be very good quality.
I had a rebounder before, but it was purchased off ebay and was god awful quality. It had a really un springy bounce so I could tell it wasn't at all good for my joints. I have now got one of Jason's, his 40 inch rebounder (the least expensive from his range) and it's fantastic! Priced pretty reasonably at £69.98 and the trampoline part is really good quality. It's much softer to bounce on that my cheap and nasty one. It also can be folded in half very quickly and stored away. I have started doing a few minutes a day and will build up to 5 minutes. You can do longer sessions on the rebounder (you might not want to stop, as it is so much fun!) but really, you dont need to do more than 20-30 minutes and thats for hardcore rebounder lovers! I really think probably the best time frame would be 15 minutes although for now, I am quite interested to see what results I get with 5 minutes, doing a routine like the one in the video above.
The Juice Master site itself is amazing, there are so many free recipes for juices and smoothies and Jason has also written quite a few excellent looking books. I really want his first book the Funky Fresh Juice Book. The cover looks good enough to eat! Check him out when you get the chance! There is a discount for you below by the way :)
Now, the second thing I can tell you about which I really recommend is Pure Body Zeolites by Touchstone Essentials. Many of my regular readers already know a lot about Pure Body because they have been taking it over the last 6 months. Many have written to me saying how fantastic they have felt afterwards and one lady even got her whole family taking Pure Body.
The reason why it's something I highly recommend is because, not many people realise just how many chemicals we are all absorbing every day. No one can get away from them, not even Polar Bears in the North Pole. They too are finding toxic chemicals in their blood such as lead. Scary! Pure Body Zeolites works by pulling out heavy metals and other toxins because it literally acts like a magnet when under a microscope. Pure Body is available in drops or a liquid spray - both are amazing and both work in different areas of the body. This product is truly fantastic and if you want to be as healthy as you can, then this is what you need. So many people eat well, yet they aren't doing anything to remove toxins from their body. This is a vital mistake because food alone wont be able to get rid of nasty things like mercury, lead, cadmium, plastics and other things like that. Zeolites (aka Clinitoptilite) has been studied in more than 300 medical studies, all showing positive health effects. So folks, this stuff really works! It's also 100% safe and natural.
The last product I want to tell you about is also by Touchstone Essentials. It's their Super Greens + D supplement. I always intend to make a green juice or big smoothie every day, but the truth is, rarely do I do this for more than a few days in a row, so therefore, i am not really doing much good to my body long term. If you are like me and find that you have the intentions but don't do it as much as you should, then you might like the look of Super Greens +D. Basically its a green juice or green smoothie in a capsule. It contains organic ingredients such as these:
Pretty impressive, right? And these ingredients have been cold pressed so is still classed as 'raw'. This is very important for when you are taking supplements, you don't want them to have been heat treated or to have come from toxic sources like most vitamin brands are. Super Greens + D has been giving so many people incredible results which they tend to see in even a weeks time. Taking Pure Body and Super Greens together, plus doing 5 minuts of rebounding every day is amazing, it's quick, easy, painless, fun and is actually doing your body a lot of good but without too much effort.
That's the kind of detox that I like!
