I know that detox is trending right now and that everyone does it before summer begins, but consider doing it for the sake of your health. We hardly realize, but the amount of unhealthy stuff we eat and the pressures we put our bodies through will take a toll on our health sooner or later. Our body is supposed to work as a well-oiled machine and we’re constantly stretching its limits beyond its capacity.
I’ll give you a small example that happened to me a couple of months ago. I was working on a project with a very tight deadline, which forced me to work very long hours for two weeks straight. This meant sleeping less than 5 hours a night (if I ever got any sleep at all), drinking ridiculous amounts of coffee to keep me up, and eating whatever I could that didn’t need cooking (so this meant a lot of fatty take-out food). The good news is that the project went well and it was a success. The bad news is that I collapsed. For the lack of a better word, I collapsed. For a couple of days, I was so incoherent that my husband actually feared I was having a stroke. Fortunately, it wasn’t that serious but it did teach me a valuable lesson. The need to take breaks and relax between strenuous tasks is fundamental to keep going. There’s a reason why your body shuts down for 8 hours to sleep.
The amount of unhealthy food I had eaten gave me painful digestive problems. For a while, I was afraid to eat anything although, strangely, my body craved for sugary and fat foods. I resorted to all-natural supplements to detox, like I had in past situations, but this time I wanted something a bit more effective than a quick fix. That’s how I found the Chaga Earth’s organic Chaga powder capsules and I haven’t stopped using them ever since. (Although I sometimes switch to the organic Chaga tea.)
