The 7-day detox plan
What is the first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word detox? Surely nasty soups and green smoothies that you can't drink without pinching your nose. Yes, our grandmothers used to tell us that the healthiest things aren't always delicious. But detoxing (or cleansing) doesn't have to be torture.
What if we told you that cleansing the body can be a piece of cake? You just need to follow a few easy tips. Keep reading to find out more.
You’ve probably heard of the word detox by now. We’re sure you roughly know what it is, but you may not be 100% sure how it works.
You're probably wondering how toxins end up in your body in the first place? Well actually everything that surrounds us and everything we consume contributes to how our body functions. From unhealthy food, cosmetics and polluted air. Since our body is burdened with these toxins, we also need to cleanse it every so often.
We suggest that you take 7 days at least twice a year for a full-body detox. How? Keep reading to find out more!
Detoxing can seem scary, even though it really isn't. It's good to mentally prepare yourself before you embark on this journey. Keep reading to learn how!
What is and what isn't allowed?
Detox is the process of cleansing the body of unhealthy toxins. This means you’ll have to say goodbye to coffee, alcohol, candy and junk food for a week. Okay, this may already seem impossible... But, there are alternatives for everything, and you never know... You might even prefer the alternative and continue implementing them even after the detox.

You should avoid:
- Alcohol and cigarettes
- Milk and dairy products (it would be best to use the alternatives instead, our favourite: almond milk)
- Carbs (bread, cookies, cakes, pasta, rice, barley, oats)
- Dried fruit
You should eat:
- Fruits and vegetables
- Fish, lean red meat, chicken (skinless)
- Beans, chickpeas, lentils
- Nuts, seeds (plain, salt-free, roasted)
- Tea (green, white or caffeine-free black tea)
Start your day off right
Kick-start your morning! The best way to start the day is to drink a glass of warm water or even better a cup of hot tea as soon as you get up. Our Daily Kick is a great way to give your metabolism a boost and elevate your body's energy in the morning. In addition, it will encourage the cleansing of your body throughout the day and give you a new dose of energy.
Feel free to use it as a substitute for coffee because it contains green tea (which we highly recommend for a detox!). And its other ingredients (nettle, fennel, dandelion and black cumin) will help you get rid of bloating and start melting fat.
Drink more water
You should drink at least 2 litres of water a day. Water helps excrete toxins from the body and also expels sodium which causes bloating. We sometimes mistake thirst for hunger, so make sure you hydrate before and between meals.
Our Draining Drink can be of great help here. It is a diuretic drink that stimulates the lymph to excrete excess water and toxins, and also cleanses the liver. It comes in a raspberry flavour and tastes great. You dissolve it in 1 litre of water and drink it in the morning. With our drink, you are already halfway through the daily dose of 2 litres!
Add probiotics to your daily diet
Our health begins with healthy digestion. Our digestive cells protect our body from toxins and chemicals, and without a healthy digestive system, our body cannot get the necessary nutrients. It contains millions of bacteria, but if there is no balance between "good" and "bad" bacteria, there are serious health problems, but also the accumulation of fat and mood swings.
Happy Enzymes will ensure absorption of beneficial nutrients only and improve your digestion.
Enjoy an evening massage
Massaging the skin with circular movements on a daily basis stimulates circulation and improves skin detoxification. You can achieve this with our massager, which you get for free with the purchase of the Draining Drink package. Add the Draining Drink to your morning routine, and take 5 minutes during the shower in the evening to get a good massage with our TummyTox massager.
Have complete regeneration during the night
Good and quality sleep every night (8 hours of sleep!) is a key to the body's health and a natural detoxification system. Good sleep ensures your brain reorganizes, and it also cleanses the body of toxins that have accumulated during the day...
With our Sleep Tight Tea, you'll achieve maximum regeneration of the body at night. Its amazing ingredients (orange peel, peppermint, lemongrass, lemon balm and hops) will help your body to rest, cleanse and regenerate during the night and prepare for a new day!
