Down to Earth Wellness Tips: Detoxing


[Music Playing] Hi… my name’s Carmela Wolf… I’m the wellness department manager here at Down to Earth… At our King Street location in Honolulu… And I also function as a nutritionist on board… Because of my background… And I’m happy today to talk a little bit about cleansing… It’s after the new year… And everyone’s asking “What should we do?”.. “How should we cleanse?”… and everything… And the first thing I tell anyone… Is no matter what product you decide to buy… You really need to make sure that… You eat as clean and lean and healthy as possible… A good eighty percent of the toxins that our body takes in… We actually have control over… And a lot of that has to do with what we take in… Drinking and eating… So, course you definitely want to look at… Avoiding processed foods… Ones with a lot of artificial ingredients… Whether it’s preservatives, colors, flavors… Additives of any kind… And eat as organic as possible… So you can avoid all the pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc… So, of course, you want to eat plenty of fruits and vegetables… Organic… Plenty of whole grains… Nuts, seeds, lentils, legumes… Again, as unprocessed as possible… As healthy as possible… And then what you drink, of course, is important… Lots of purified water… And if you can, avoiding any drinks also that have anything artificial in them too… And normally you don’t want to take in a lot of sugar anyway… So even juices… you want to be a little bit careful… So I always say, “Drink plenty of water…” Because really, you know, we’re cleansing through our intestines… Through our liver… Through our kidneys… And so you want everything flowing and flushing as much as you can… So that’s the basics to any cleanse… Is, you know, working with the body, rather than against it… And giving it all of the good ingredients that you need… To, you know, cleanse and support… All of the… the Kidneys and Liver… And organs that are cleansing for you… So that’s the main thing that we want first to lay the foundation for… And then we can look at products that you want to actually take… To assist the cleanse further… [Music Playing]
