It can be challenging transitioning into a healing diet if you have lived a lifetime not paying much attention to what your body actually need. It’s a lifestyle change not a trend or a quick fix. It’s meant to support your body’s own ability to heal and restore. Using herbs to soothe and support this process can be so powerful and accelerate your healing and strengthen your overall health.
These herbs have superpowers that can both strengthen and detoxify our bodies and even stimulate a deeper healing process that you haven’t been able to achieve with diet changes.
It’s a holistic approach; body, mind and spirit have to partake in the process.
I’ve learned that it’s a daily commitment to show up for yourself and give your body the best fuel and a process of “unlearning” what has been programmed your entire life. A small little commitment of a new habit is a great way to start and then to be consistent enough to create a new habit that nourish you.
The mind wanders and always wants to seek back to what feels “safe” and familiar. You can meditation and being in stillness to let old emotion rise and allow them to be. Yep, emotional detox is a real thing!!! We don’t realize how often we actually bury our emotions with foods that have a numbing effect and makes us feel sedated. Most of us have grown up like this.
It can be a rough journey ... many layers of detox will reveal itself and you may have to go through phases of feeling low and like you are not getting better or you may minor health challenges that hinders you from feeling your best.
Just note that what you perceive as a setback can actually be a healing crisis that makes you feel amazing right after the body has released toxins and unburdening another layer of waste that are hindering you from feeling your best. Healing is a process that you can’t rush, so I encourage you to make it fun and exciting along the way and build habits that nurture your senses and tastebuds.
I know all about the bumpy ride to feeling your best and I wanted to share with your some of my favorite adaptogen herbs that’s can support your going through this journey. It can strengthen you physically and emotionally and help you cope with the stress that comes with being challenged with our health and living in our modern world today.
