The Healthy Way to Detox

The more educated we, as a society, get in terms of health and nutrition, the more misguided information will pop up. A seemingly popular topic that has both positives and negatives swirling around the internet is detoxing the body.

Do we even need to detox? If so, is there a right and a wrong way to do it?

To answer these questions, we have to cover some basics about detoxing first. Our bodies naturally have a detoxification process that happens every day. The idea is to clean the blood that is circulating through our systems to provide a more effective and efficient machine. The body eliminates toxins throughout our bodies through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. All in all, this series of detoxification works well without much effort on our part. However, there are times when our bodies need an extra boost to ensure that everything is moving the way it should.

Detox Products

With all the toxins present in our environment, sometimes our body needs a little help to filter everything out. Enter the detoxes and cleanses that you see, today. Today’s detox and cleanse products range from raw juice liquid diets to strong diuretics, but there’s a better way. Herbal blends have been used to help filter the blood (detox) for thousands of years. More often than not, they are safer than other detox supplements because they are well-rounded, time-tested formulas that have been created to bring balance and harmony to the body. In general, when detoxing the body, it requires a lot of water to keep everything moving appropriately. Many supplements or detox products dehydrate the body because they don’t replenish what it is taking out. This is not the case for herbs. Since herbs are plants, they have phytochemicals, vitamins and minerals, and water which gets put back into the body.

What to Eat During a Detox

While some companies ask you not to eat anything during your detox, this is a misguided (and dangerous!) way to go about things. Typically, the food that you are consuming is the source of energy that your body needs to kick into overdrive for your detox, so eating real food is a good idea. However, you should consider modifying your “normal diet” while trying to boost this cleansing system in your body. Eating greasy or fatty foods is not a good idea, neither is loading up on caffeine. While cleaning out the toxins from your body, consider replenishing your body with much-needed nutrients like fresh fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and drinking lots of water (and Tea)! You want to stay hydrated, alert and energized.

When looking for a way to boost your energy, get rid of that “sluggish” feeling, or simply tune up your body, think about what you’re putting your system through. If you’re a fan of drinking only juice or a cayenne pepper and lemon cocktail with a cube of cheese for 10 days, by all means, you have the right to. But if you’re looking to nourish your body and REALLY detox the junk out of your body for a “fresh start,” then reach for something that is natural, balanced and time-tested. Try an herbal supplement and feel the difference in your detox!

cups-star-trivet-125-cast-iron-black-hobnail-tea-pot-kettle-0.6-litre-tetsubin-japanese-style-2457-pFace to face contact in business, shopping transactions, and in other instances is surely becoming a thing of the past, however, it should never replace the face to face for two!

Getting to know someone takes time, energy, openness, willingness, conversation, & trust.

There is no better way  to accomplish this than the old fashioned face to face sit down, and there is no better complement to this situation than a hot cup of tea; tea takes time, just like building friendships and love.

When you really want to know what is on someone’s mind, what is truly in their heart just invite them to have a cup of tea.

For The Love Of Tea

Posted by on Oct 30, 2015 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Cast-Iron-Teapot

Today’s society is moving faster than any other societies of the past that we know of. Everyone is on a rigid schedule, checking the time always, communicating through devices, through text messages, through social media, networking through online websites. Now, more and more people are avoiding the old ways of shopping, and choosing to do all of their shopping online, and having their purchases delivered directly to their homes. People communicating face to face is quickly finding a back seat to technological ways of reaching out to express what someone is feeling. The smiley face has taken on every emotion, and replaced the intimate connection of seeing the look on someone’s face to determine what is going on inside. While the internet has truly improved how many people we can reach and share ideas with, let’s not forget the ones who immediately surround us.

A simple, and unquestionably real way to combat the mechanical interaction all around, is to simple enjoy a cup of tea. That moment when the water reaches the boiling point, and a decision has been made as to what kind of flavor you wish to enjoy, smell the aroma of, and sip quietly is the moment that counts the most, it is the calm and peace, the desired result. It is for the love of tea and tranquility that this site exists, sharing intimacy through reminding yourself that you must still indeed enjoy the stillness of life to truly benefit from all things that life has to offer.

In many ways the hustle and bustle of today effects our health in ways we cannot immediately see. The instant gratification world we live in leaves our inner-selves crying for attention. Longing for a moment to just “be“.

  Tea Therapy is a way of life, a movement, and a pledge to include simple time for self,  as mandatory for health and wellness.
