By The Haven Team: 20 May 2015

  1. Remove toxins from the body.
    In our society we have all endured long term exposure to toxins. They are in the foods we eat, the air we breath, the fabrics we wear and the water we drink and wash in. Put simply, toxins area byproduct of how we have chosen to live and our bodies are continually dealing with this. Taking a simple diet, juice fast or by fasting, we give a bodies an opportunity to release toxins at an accelerated rate, clearing some of the toxins we’ve been storing.
  2. Prevent Chronic disease and pain in the body.
    Because of the overload of toxins coming into the body (our bodies are simply not built to deal with so much at once!), our bodies have to store it. Over time this stored toxic waste can come disease. Toxins are responsible for many kinds of cancers, neurological diseases, heart disease, strokes and many unknown aches and pains in the body.
  3. Boost Immunity.
    Regular detoxing is known to boost the immune system, helping us to fight disease.
  4. Loose weight.
    Toxins affect the body’s natural ability to burn fat, leading to weight gain. Detoxing rids the body or the toxins stored in fat cells and increases metabolism.
  5. Slow premature aging.
    Detoxing rids the body of free radicals and heavy metals partially responsible for aging. Detoxing helps to increase nutrient absorption including antioxidants and vitamins that help fight disease
  6. Improve our quality of life.
    Our bodies don't function very well when they're loaded with toxins. We may have joint pain, headaches, digestive disorders, sleep problems, and lack of energy. Detoxification can ease depression, lethargy and many uncomfortable health issues.
  7. Improve mental and emotional clarity.
    Detoxing improves our mental and emotional states. We can deal with the stresses of life more easily when we are clear and grounded. We can make better decisions, analyze more accurately, and see things differently.
  8. Increase energy.
    By releasing the toxic load on your system, detoxing gives you more energy, more clarity and more zest for living.
  9. Improve skin quality.
    Diet and environmental toxins undeniably affect skin. Detoxing improves acne, and strengthens hair and nails, and produces a natural, healthy glow.
  10. Restore balance to our body's systems.
    Our digestive, nervous, and hormonal systems are designed to work together to achieve optimum health. When we are overloaded with toxins, these systems are not able to work so efficiently and we can get sick, develop allergies or experience emotional or mental distress. Detoxing gives our body a rest and brings our internal systems back into balance.
