Do You Need To Detox? The Checklist
Last updated on
Skin problems, fatigue, frequent attacks of headaches or migraines are all early warning signs of ill health and that your system could do with a detox.
I want to share with you the detox checklist I used for my clients to find if they need a detox.
Are You Suffering from Toxin Overload?
Print out this checklist below and tick off questions that are true. The more “yes” answers, the more and longer you need to go on a detox program. If you answer “yes” to at least 5 questions, you are likely to benefit from a detox.

Thank you for a fantastic and very very informative site! I am interested to start the colon detox. The one where you drink the fiber drink before each meal. Do i eat normally those days? I mean, do i continue my normal eating habits those days and “just” add the drink before each meal? We eat healthy in general and a diet with lots of veggies and fruit. I just started juicing(!!!) everyday and i love it!! Very much appreciate your time to inform us and taking the time to answer.

Hi Susanne, thank you for your kind words. The gastrointestinal cleanse … yes, as long as you are generally eating a healthy diet with lots of veges and fruits, definitely “just” add the fiber drink and the recommended supplements. Juicing, while being on the gastro cleanse is great too! Keep it up! (Reference: http://juicing-for-health.com/gastrointestinal-cleanse).
