Time is on your side if you are detoxing or dieting.

Are you ready for a lifestyle change? Are you ramping up your health, or maybe you’d like to shed a pound or two.

It’s always good to fine-tune your current health status no matter how healthy you are, and even if your weight is perfect. I want to share a tip for you to use when you are seeking health changes …

… commit to your new program for at least one month.

It’s easy to slip back into previous habits when detoxing or dieting, so hang in there. Give your new changes some time to stick.

  1. Don’t cheat or binge on the foods that you are trying to avoid;
  2. Don’t get discouraged if you don’t see immediate changes;
  3. Don’t stop a new program once you have started, give it at least a month.

Many times, detoxing can result in headaches as toxins release, but always monitor any unusual pain when detoxing or dieting.

Here’s an exception: if you start experiencing any new pain, anxiety, or unusual, harmful reactions, you should back down on what you are doing, or stop altogether and reassess.

Fasting is a good example: some people do NOT do well when fasting; this dietary change can shock your body, and many times, it can throw your blood sugar into trauma. (Maybe I’ll write more on this at a later time.)

Don’t get me wrong – many people benefit greatly from fasting, but many people do not.  So, just keep in mind that when you are detoxing or dieting, take the changes slowly, yet consistently, and monitor negative reactions or pain.

Why Wait A Month?

Traditional medicine, including Big Pharma drugs, have left people with the wrong impression. They work quickly to mask your health symptoms, but they aren’t addressing a long-term solution.

When you begin a more holistic program, immediate results typically don’t happen. Consider migraine headaches – most OTC or prescription meds will numb the headache quickly, but what you aren’t doing is removing the core reason WHY you have the headache.

I wonder – are you taking your pain killer with a diet cola?

Searching for the cause of negative health symptoms takes time before the symptoms stop for good, but it’s a great way to prevent nasty health symptoms from reoccurring.

If you are detoxing from heavy metals or a microbe, or if you are trying to lose weight, know that it takes time if you are going to do it right.

And, don’t feel alone – most of us seek to better our health and wellness, and detoxing, manintaininbg a healthy weight, and adopting a healthy eating regimen are the best places to begin.

Here’s to your health.
