It's that time of year again, my absolute favourite season, Fall is here! Part of me can't believe there are only 4 months left in 2015 but the other part is thrilled that the cooler weather is setting in and pumpkin spice everything is back!
This is also the time of year that is the perfect opportunity to revamp your health with a nutritional detox. I have talked about why I prefer to do detoxes with a focus on diet many, many times before. For myself, and in my practice, I like to use a 'detox' as a way to get healthy practices and diet back on track as I find life generally derails them a bit.
After many basic gluten/dairy free detoxes, I upped the game a bit this past Spring by doing a Whole 30 as my Spring detox. I really liked it. You can read more about my experience with it here (mid way point) and here (at the end).
What I liked most about it was the focus on removing sugar. Sugar has a huge impact on our health and as a society, we consume far too much, much of the time without even realizing it. So, for this detox, I will again be focusing on the basics- gluten/dairy AND removing sugar.
