Kick off your detox with these easy tips
If your New Year's resolutions have already taken a bit of a beating, don't despair!
Indeed, there's no time like the present to really get your detox started - with Christmas and New Year gluttony well and truly behind us, mid-January means detox season.
It's advisable to really go for it to begin with, so that your body is completely pure and ready to be as healthy as can be for the rest of 2013.
When detoxing, there are plenty of things that you can't put into your body, so to be on the safe side it's a good idea to have some detox juice recipes stored up, as they are full of all things good!
To stay well rounded, use a combination of fruit and vegetables.
You can pretty much put in anything that you like into your detox juice, depending on your taste buds, but some combinations are well known for being especially tasty and good for you.
If you feel that your immune system needs a particular boost, try loading up with citrus fruits which are packed full of vitamin C.
According to medical herbalist Max Tomlinson, "vitamin C is important because it not only boosts immune function but most importantly maintains the integrity of the skin.
"Vitamin E and vitamin A is important, so look at getting your vitamin A from some of the orange coloured vegetables. The classic source of vitamin C is oranges".
If you feel that you need a natural sugar kick, try adding high-potassium things to your juice such as bananas and blueberries.
Some herbal teas are beneficial to the body during a detox because they make our bodies sweat, which flushes away lots of harmful toxins which affect our skin, hair and general wellbeing.
Particular teas are what are called diaphoretic, which means that they create heat in the body and cause sweating, according to Andrew Johnson, herbal specialist.
"Some are more laxative, or help the digestion, bowel and liver – they would be midly detoxyifying in that way. So different herbal teas could be used for different types of detox and cleansing," he advised.
