Avoid Common Detox Snags and Reach the Next Level of Vitality.
Contrary to popular belief, detoxification doesn’t have to be a chore. It’s not like cleaning the garage or behind the fridge. A gentle, total-body detox can be like having your own luxury spa right at home – you can run an Epsom salt bath, light some beeswax candles, and drink a delicious green vegetable smoothie. When people learn just how easy detox and cleansing can be with the right foods, lifestyle practices and targeted supplements, it becomes a revolutionary way to revitalize long term health. There are a number of whole, natural foods that help cleanse and remove toxins from deep within. On the other hand, processed ingredients, caffeine, alcohol and trans-fats can increase toxic body burden, so it’s critical to eliminate these items. By emphasizing detoxifying, nutrient-dense foods, we help clear the way for optimal health throughout the year.
There's a myth going around about detox. Many people believe that detoxification and cleanse programs have to be grueling lessons in fasting and deprivation. That we must feel worse before we can feel better. But this isn't the case! We thought we'd share one of our favorite green smoothie recipes for St. Patrick's Day -- a healthy tip in our ongoing Spring Detox Special.
With the clocks moving ahead on March 9th, we are ready to "Spring Forward." It's a great time to start planning a seasonal spring cleanse.

We see them everywhere — in our yards, on the side of the road, sprouting through the sidewalk cracks. They're the ubiquitous little yellow flowers known as dandelions, and they're one of nature's great survivors, capable of thriving just about anywhere.

It is no coincidence that Mother's Day comes at just this time of year.

One unconventional approach to seasonal allergies is eating local honey. But while many people swear by eating 2-4 teaspoons per day in divided doses for allergy prevention, the general consensus in the medical world is skeptical.

It’s no coincidence that Valentine’s Day and National Heart Month both fall in February. While for centuries the heart has been associated with love, we don’t always love our hearts. We may lead stressful lives, eat the wrong kinds of food (and too much of it), smoke or neglect to exercise. While the heart is an amazing organ, beating continuously our entire lives, it has limits. Fortunately, simple things, like stress relief, exercise and diet can make a big difference in heart health. And new research shows how PectaSol-C® Modified Citrus Pectin (MCP) works to support a healthy cardiovascular system, among its other remarkable benefits.
