Clean house & lose weight at the same time!

I know what you're thinking when you read the title of this post..."Seriously Dr. Terri. How can I lose weight by cleaning my house?" Metaphorically speaking, the house I am referring to is your body. It is the house that actually counts, because it is where you have to live each & every day of your life until you die. Cleaning your house has profound effects on your health; one of which is weight loss.

Let's talk about cleaning house first. Our bodies naturally go through regular cycles of cleansing/detoxifying without our even being aware that it's happening. The primary systems involved include our liver, skin, lymphatics, digestive, urinary & respiratory systems. These all work together to neutralize & eliminate waste & potentially harmful substances that have entered the body. Sadly, each & every one of us now carries a toxic load/burden due to the overwhelming number of chemical substances in the environment, in our food, in our homes, in our water; in our lives. The body stores what it cannot get rid of & hence we all become a bowl of dirty toxic soup.
So, how do I know if I should detox? Each & every one of us should detox at least once a year, but if you look at the list of symptoms below & you answer yes to any of them you should start 2013 off right by cleaning house.
  • fatigue
  • acne
  • allergies
  • drowsiness after eating
  • depressed appetite
  • digestive issues (GERD, gas, ulcers, diverticulitis, etc.)
  • loss of energy
  • difficulty falling asleep
  • difficulty staying asleep
  • emotional stress
  • headaches
  • nausea
  • muscle cramps
  • constipation
  • diarrhea
  • food cravings
  • PMS
  • skin problems
  • mental fog
  • poor tolerance to fatty foods
  • pain under the right shoulder blade
  • excess weight

I have worked with a number of patients on detoxing their bodies & each & every one of them has experienced a life transformation. Whether it was a 25lb weight loss,  the complete disappearance of diverticulitis or the overall improvement in mental clarity & energy, cleaning your house has amazing benefits.

Let me walk you through the steps of a healthier & more amazing you in 2013.
