Stress: The Body’s Biggest Toxin?!


Trust it. Believe it.

I’m having a Flash 4-Day Sale on my Fall Clean Eating Detox Program, so I wanted to let you all know about it and take a second to discuss how this signature detox is not just about the food on your plate.  The greatest success at weight loss, at a boosted immune system, and at health, is achieved when you focus as much energy on your food choices as you do on evaluating the other areas of your life that are not serving you. This is a key aspect of not just my detox program, but also in how I approach all of my holistic health coaching clients (see my post on holistic health for a detailed picture of my health philosophy). In my program, I provide you with my personal unlimited support as well as an awesome Tool Kit that guides you through the steps to incorporating good self-care into your 11-day experience (and that you can take into the rest of your life)! It’s a pretty nifty package that my clients have loved!

Detoxing on an emotional level, as well as a physical one, will help you
truly begin to thrive again.

So many of us need to step back and take a little time for ourselves. In our go-go-go society, we’re always thinking about the next task, how to manage the next crisis, and how to side-step the one after that. We are so busy. In some ways, that’s great – I’m all for living a full life! – but at times, it becomes detrimental to our health and happiness.destress for the holidays

How often do you feel like you’re actually living in the present moment? Not 10 minutes before, not an hour from now, but JUST THIS SECOND? It’s hard to do, isn’t it?

When was the last time you did something to take care of you? Did you find yourself feeling guilty about it?

Our busy lives are often quite downright stressful. Did you know that stress is actually one of the biggest toxins that we fight? Stress finds its way into our daily life far too easily and far too often.

Stress ramps up our adrenal glands’ cortisol production, which over time, can lead to things like weight gain (and stubborn weight loss), chronic fatigue, and immune suppression.

No matter how healthy you pile your plate each day and how many time you hit the gym each week, if you’re experiencing chronic stress and not taking the proper time to de-frazzle yourself, it will be hard to look and feel good. I’ve experienced this firsthand on too many occasions – when my stress levels skyrocket and I “forget about me” – my digestion gets wonky, my body aches all over (you would not believe the knots I get in my back!), my skin breaks out, and I get irritable, especially when it starts affecting my sleep. It’s not fun. My body is essentially calling out to me that it’s experiencing toxic stress overload!

When I finally get the message, I know it’s time to regroup, break out a few more healthy meals designed to naturally cleanse my body, take time to journal, take a nice long soaking bath, and do something special to rejuvenate my body, mind, and spirit.

Enter the holiday season coming up. Talk about stress-central (unfortunately). I know it’s not supposed to be that way, but for many of us, including myself, it often is. It’s coming fast, but now is the perfect time to get a jump-start on them instead, and enter the holiday season stress-free, re-centered, de-frazzled, and feeling downright fabulous in your skinny jeans and new winter top!

Before the winter festivities hit full force, take a moment for you.
