Pre and Post Detox Information

Pre Detoxing

When doing either of the longer detox programmes, it is highly recommended to do some form of pre-cleansing. This entails cutting out processed and fried foods, red meat, alcohol, coffee, refined carbs and sugars and sticking to a mainly fruit and/or vegetable diet for 2-3 days or up to a week before starting.

Post Detox Tips and Suggestions



It’s time to introduce new, healthy habits, not just to your diet but in your lifestyle as a whole. Here are some things that will help you as you transition back to a healthier state.
  • Try to spend more time outside, sweat, do something good for your body every day. One of the most important things you can do is move.
  • Be aware of what you put into your body! Wait until you feel hungry and feel the difference between hunger, craving and curiosity.
  • Eat small amounts, chew well and eat slowly…food really is even more wonderful when it is savoured.
  • Stay hydrated – drink plenty of water, herbal tea is also great.
  • Instead of a dish you can have a fresh, green veggie juice or coconut water. Chew your juice also 🙂
  • The first two days after fasting are very simple. Try to eat raw or steamed vegetables. Add flaxseeds, pumpkin seeds, olive oil, flaxseed oil, coconut oil or try a little balsamic vinegar, apple or coconut cider vinegar with them.
  • Be aware of blood sugar level spikes and avoid getting ‘hangry’. Make sure you don’t end up feeling overly deprived. Look for healthy snacks like nuts to help you through the day. If you would like to eat something sweet, choose low-sugar, fresh fruits.
  • From the 3rd day you can introduce steamed or cooked complex carbs – quinoa, amaranth, riceberry, wild rice, millet, oats. You can also add in some steamed fish or eggs.
  • From the 5th day you can add more protein to your diet. Why not try to Introduce the foods one by one – it is much easier to control. See how your body reacts – if you are bloated, if you have cramps wait a few days before trying the same food again.
  • Try legumes or beans if this is what suits you, if not you can go with more complex protein like chicken.
  • Put almonds, walnuts, pistachios and macadamia nuts on your salad.
  • Find a good natural probiotic, unsweetened yoghurt.
  • If cheese is something that you can’t give up then now you can re-introduce that but try not to eat too much and stick to cheeses like cottage cheese, feta cheese, or a good hard sheep or goat’s cheese.
  • From the 7th day you can try foods that are harder to digest like red meat if you eat that – but try adding only one new food per day if possible.
  • In general, whatever your diet, full carnivore, raw vegan or anything in between, two key words are quality and quantity. Try to find the best natural ingredients possible and try to reduce your portion sizes.
  • Try to avoid sweet flavours and cut out processed and artificial foods.
  • Set up some kind of exercise routine…make sure it fits in with your life and make it achievable. It is better to do less but do it, than to set a goal you cannot achieve.
  • Mix up your exercise if possible. If you are into cardio, why not try yoga or visa versa?
  • One thing people forget is how important oral health is. Make sure you clean your teeth properly, get food out of difficult areas, see a hygienist regularly. This will also enhance your overall health and wellbeing.
  • Look at the other areas of your life. Try to reduce toxins wherever possible. Can you stop using shop bought toxic cleaning products? Can you make your own or at least find ones that are less toxic? What about soaps, deodorant and make up? Try and find more natural brands or even make your own of these too. There is so much you can do and the internet has a myriad of ideas and helpful suggestions. Do you own research, talk to people you know and find out if they are doing things you could implement. Make it fun.
Eat healthily, move more and head towards a more natural lifestyle. Doing a regular detox is also a good thing to add into your plans 🙂
