(Natural News) The world of food and nutrition has been overrun with industry-focused propaganda — especially when it comes to specific interests like weight loss and detoxing. It can be hard to separate fact from fiction when there are companies out there that are dedicated to spamming you with snake oil weight loss “cures” or other nonsense. Even the long-held “low-fat diet” was a sham put together by the sugar industry to protect their profits.
It’s not a secret that nutrition and health can be tough waters to navigate; after all, it’s become clear that most of what we’re told about nutrition by the industry is a lie. But at Detox.news, you can learn the truth about what you’re eating, how to detox from a lifetime of toxic junk, and natural, health-promoting diet and lifestyle tips. Real information about health and wellness is within reach, though the massive propaganda machines like Facebook and Google are doing their best to keep that information from reaching the masses.
Detox.news provides coverage of the all the latest news in food, nutrition and weight loss, along with tips, tricks and more.
Detoxing from sugar, heavy metals and more
It’s such a shame that in our modern world, you basically need to detox from everyday life and the toxins we’re so commonly exposed to through food, water and the air we breathe. But, at least detoxing from the pitfalls of life is still possible. In a recent article, writer Zoey Sky explains what the process of detoxing from sugar looks like and how you can do it yourself.
As Sky notes, sugar is a major player in some of the most common diseases today, like heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. “If your diet consists of sugar-rich foods, your blood pressure can skyrocket. This can then cause inflammation which is connected to obesity. If you’re overweight, your hormonal system may be unbalanced and this can wreak havoc on your weight,” Sky explains.
Many nutritionists agree that cutting out sugary foods (except for organic fruits in moderation, of course) is one of the best ways to combat disease. Done right, detoxing from sugar has a host of health benefits. As Sky reports, when cutting sugar out of the diet, it’s important to abstain from artificial sugars and “sugar-free” foods as well. Terms like “low sugar” or “sugar-free” are red flags for products that have been adulterated with sugar substitutes, fats and salt to make up the difference in flavor.
Ultimately, these are usually processed foods you’d want to stay away from in order to get the most out of your “detox” plan. You can read more about detoxing from sugar here.
Sugar isn’t the only thing people need to detox from nowadays; heavy metals are often found in food and vaccines. But there are a number of plants, like chlorella or spirulina, which can help you remove metals from the body.
Sometimes your mind needs a bit of detoxing too, especially if you find yourself spending a lot of time on social media. Sites like Facebook have been shown to increase feelings of depression, anxiety and an overall dissatisfaction with life. These kinds of feelings can really take a toll on your mental health and well-being, which is just as important as the physical self. Studies have shown taking time off of social media can help you feel happier and become more focused on your life.
