JH PODCAST 11: Why You Need to Detox and How You Can Make It A Part Of Your Every Day

—  found in  Well-being  —

It's no surprise that I am very passionate about detoxing; so much so, that my second book, Joyous Detox, is dedicated to teaching you the many ways we can go about detoxing in our daily life! Supporting your body's natural detoxification system is more important than ever. Our ancient biology simply wasn't designed for the chemicals and toxins in our modern environment and as a result, we're seeing a higher frequency of symptoms such as sluggish digestion, acne, and low energy, and the rates of illness and disease are skyrocketing. 

After listening to this episode, I am positive you will have a much better idea as to how you can detox in your daily life, including the food you eat, the supplements you take, the thoughts you think, the air you breathe and the life that you live! Happy detoxing!

I started drinking lime in my water instead of lemon, I just prefer the taste of it and a friend of mine from Mexico said they use lime way more than lemon. Just wondering if limes have the same properties as lemon and are they good for detoxing too?

Hi Joy. Love listening to your podcasts. I had read somewhere that you should be dry brushing towards your heart. You had said on your podcast that you should be brushing away from your heart. Could you clarify why?
