Detox


Modern day life, filled with consumption of processed foods, stress, pollution and alcohol over indulgence, necessitates one to give ones body a break from time to time. You can then rid yourself of built up metabolites. These affects your health , your metabolism and your vitality.

Die moderne lewe met sy baie geprosesseerde kos, stres, besoedeling en alkoholgebruik maak dit nodig om jou liggaam periodiek ’n blaaskans te gee, sodat jy ontslae kan raak van opgehoopte afvalstowwe wat jou gesondheid belemmer, jou metabolisme vertraag en jou moeg laat voel.

Some people prefer not to detox or find it difficult to stick to it for a whole day. This detox is optional, but we recommend doing it before you start your diet plan. It’s only for one day

You can repeat it once a week or once a month if you prefer. Start listening to your body.

Please Note:
Those of you with any medical conditions must first consult your General Practitioner before embarking on a detox program. Don’t do the detox if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
