How to Detox Fast from Holiday Eating & Drinking

Each of us have our own version of indulging: whether it’s once a day, once a week or only during holidays + celebrations. Regardless of the frequency, everyone can benefit heaps from adopting a detox routine.

Detoxing doesn’t have to mean some expensive, elaborate juice cleanse or a raw foods diet (even though i LOVE green juice and it’s great for detoxing). Cleansing the body can be simple, easily affordable and useful if you have a hangover, if your energy levels are down or if you just want a metabolic edge.

Check out these 4 ingredients and their applications for detoxing:

Apple Cider Vinegar

-Acts as a digestive aid and encourages a healthy + vital GI tract

-Improves your complexion, aid internal cleansing, makes bowel movements more regular

-Consume by taking a shot or diluting it in a 12oz glass of water or fresh juice

Activated Charcoal

-Binds to toxins, heavy metals and chemicals in your systems and expels them through the GI tract

-Consume by combining with water in a shaker bottle

Bentonite Clay

-Similar to activated charcoal, bentonite clay pairs with harsh toxins in the system and helps your body get rid of them

-Consume like activated charcoal: in a shaker bottle with water to avoid clumpiness

Baking Soda

-Quickly adjusts stomach pH, increases alkalinity

-Great for neutralizing a pained or sour stomach (after acidic foods like alcohol or fried foods

-Consume by stirring into a 12oz glass of water

Take it Up (Several) Notches

Combine all 4, let the fizz settle (the apple cider vinegar and baking soda react when combined) and throw it down the hatch. It’s not going to taste awesome, but focus on the benefits and chase it with something like juice or lemon water. Hello detox party!

Discount for HealthTestingCenters.com: Hormone + Metabolic Testing

This post is sponsored by HealthTestingCenters.com. All opinions are sincerely my own.

Learning more about what’s going on inside my body has been a focus of mine in recent years. By that I mean I’ve been trying to get more insight into what hormone imbalances may be contributing to the painful menstrual cycles that I’ve battled for many years now.

I feel super fortunate to have linked up with HealthTestingCenters.com. Through them, I was able to get my hormones tested, as well as have my metabolic function evaluated and learn about my cancer risk factors (kind of a scary thing to know–but I figured why not).

Having these results means that I have some tools in my toolbox to help me figure out what my body needs and what it’s lacking. The best thing about this process that was I was able to get the testing done at my local Quest Diagnostics facility (I didn’t even make an appointment; I was able to walk in on a day that was convenient for me). It was also neat to have this type of testing available to me that I could select online (it was literally like filling up my shopping cart with the tests I wanted).

It took them about a week to get the results back to me, I received them via e-mail and voila! Below is a look at the results I received. I was encouraged to see that my body looks to be functioning at a pretty high level.

The only thing that came up abnormal or “high” is the MHC (mean corpuscular hemoglobin) which seems to be a potential indicator of anemia (which my mom has). It basically means that my vitamin b12 and folate levels are low, which effects red blood cells. I’ll be looking more into why that may be the case and how I can aid my body through diet and supplementation to get into a healthier range.

This is a piece of information I’ve never had before and it’s helping me help myself even better than ever. Seriously very grateful to have this information!

i want this platform to encompass more aspects of my life and provide an even realer view. expect the usual fitnessing and making weird coffee drinks, but also more of my life outside the gym, my boyfriend, our dog Kona, traveling, lake weekends, drinky drinkin, all the fun having, and just flying around in space trying to live my best life
my website will still be runonorganic.com until my domain expires at the end of the year, at which time i may decide to only keep my social channels and discontinue the site. we’ll see on that one!

If we aren’t connected on social media yet, come find me! Would love to chat and talk!
