Today marks day 1 of my detox. Depending on how my body responds, I may detox for the next week (12/17 – 12/23). I will drink my detox tea 3 times a day, along with a cup of broth in the morning, mid-day, and in the evening. I will also drink water throughout the day. Since I am not able to stay home throughout this detox (as some die-hard advocates of quarterly and annual detoxification are subject to do), I will eat baked fish with my evening cup of broth. I still need to have enough energy to function!
Last night, I purchased some herbal tea (EveryDay Detox; Traditional Medicinals) from the grocery store. In the past, I have tried detox pills and teas. Both seem to do the trick aka Project Clean. One specific tea that I have tried works too well for my liking. I will only return to that one to get rid of bloating or clean me out when I have a gathering to attend within several days. It works that well.
I haven’t tried this specific detox tea before, but I have read very good reviews online. The manufacturer recommends drinking 2-3 cups of this tea daily for up to 6 weeks, with a one-week break before consuming it again.
Here are the ingredients:
Roasted organic chicory root
Roasted organic dandelion root
Schisandra fruit dry extract
Organic schisandra fruit
Organic lycium fruit dry extract
A proprietary blend of the following: organic licorice root, organic ginger rhizome, organic star anise fruit, and organic kukicha twig
I will have to do my research on the effects that these ingredients have on our digestive system. As this is a reputable manufacturer and my faith lies in God, I’m taking the leap!! Mama’s gotta get this body back in tip-top shape!!
