How to Detox Your Life

When the subject of detoxification is mentioned, the first thing that comes to mind is cleansing the body through diet. While the foods you consume are crucial to your overall health, there’s more to the detox process than just what you eat. Think bigger.

What if you could detox your entire life?

Let’s start with what’s around us. Environmental toxins are everywhere—in the air, soil, water, food, and even our homes. While it’s impossible to escape pollutants entirely, the goal is to minimize our exposure.

So what can be done within the boundaries of our houses?

Look no further than your local nursery. Houseplants have oxygen-producing qualities. Placing a potted plant in your home not only adds a splash of lively color to your space, but also cleans the air. To achieve this, you don’t have to turn your living room into a jungle because a single potted plant effectively cleans up to 100 square-feet. Another tip to reduce toxins in your home is to refrain from air fresheners and plug-ins. Instead freshen the air with a diffuser and your favorite essential oil.

Most name brand cleaners for your home can be counterproductive in your pursuit of detoxing your environment. The goal is to sterilize your home, but these supposed “cleaning” products are infested with pollutants. Browse the market for green cleaners or make your own. Vinegar is a natural cleansing agent that’s good for most surfaces and easy to procure.

How else can you detox your life?

Get moving! Exercising regularly helps rid the body of unwanted debris filtering through the body’s system! Through perspiration, the toxins are naturally released. One study reveals that exercise can hold the capability of removing toxic elements from the body. Utilizing a sauna is another option that helps get rid of those pesky pollutants.

Drinking plenty of water is an important factor when it comes to detoxing the body. It’s recommended to drink half your bodyweight in ounces of water. Foods that aid in the detoxification process are garlic, leafy greens, broccoli, ginger, apples, and beets. Be sure to avoid anything processed by purchasing only organic and non-GMO foods. Sugar is a catalyst for inflammation and therefore is discouraged.

Another important element that supports detoxification is a good night’s rest. It’s recommended to obtain 7-9 hours of shut-eye. Sleep refreshes the body and mind, recharging you to face the upcoming day.

Because stress negatively impacts every area of our life, it’s vital to eliminate the triggers. Try to incorporate relaxation techniques such as meditation, prayer, yoga, etc.

Even though pollutants surround us daily, taking these necessary steps will considerably reduce your exposure, leaving a happier and healthier you!

Distress or Chronic Stress

Distress or chronic stress is uncontrollable, prolonged, or overwhelming stress. Once stress becomes distress, the body manages to survive though not always to thrive. For example, when faced with periods of chronic stress, the body’s immune system function is lowered, and the digestive, excretory, and reproductive systems no longer function the way they should. In a state of distress, the cells of the immune system (and other body systems) are unable to respond normally and produce levels of inflammation which increase the risk of further health issues.


Homeostasis refers to your body’s ability to regulate itself and maintain a comparatively stable internal environment despite external and internal conditions and events.

Your body is designed to be in a state of homeostasis, where all the systems within are functioning optimally.


Stressor is anything that is perceived by the body as challenging, threatening or demanding.

Health Story

In the context of My Wellbeing Compass, your “Health Story” represents the combination of your dis-eases, conditions, symptoms and the history that binds them together. It is multi-layered and multi-dimensional. Unearthing and resolving the root causes at the core of your Health Story is the only way to truly rewrite this Story.

Natural Self-repair Mechanisms

The body is made up of intelligent, living cells that are dynamically connected. They communicate and just know what to do and when to do it in any given situation. They grow, replicate, repair, and age. Every 90 days, the body has a new bloodstream; every year, it manufactures billions of new cells; colon cells refresh every 4 days; the skin is entirely regenerated every 2-3 weeks; white blood cells regenerate in about 1 year; the liver renews itself at least once every 2 years; and the skeleton replaces its cells entirely every 10 years.

You are an incredibly complex, interactive, and dynamic living organism that is well-equipped with self-repair mechanisms that can fight infections, eliminate toxins, fix damaged DNA, destroy cancer cells, and even slow down aging.

This natural self-healing ability (also referred to as cellular intelligence or body’s innate intelligence) explains spontaneous remissions from seemingly “incurable” diseases.
