What we mean by the word 'detox'

Somewhere along the way, the word ‘detox’ became a loaded term. But detoxing has been around in some form or another basically forever.


Yes, the body has a built-in detoxification system. But we live in a polluted world, surrounded by chemicals. We consume them, we breathe them in, we put them on our skin, we sleep in them. The food we eat is more and more processed and is manufactured to be within an inch of recognition, and the stresses of modern life are playing havoc with our health. We are all dealing with so much more toxicity than ever before.

Our bodies will naturally try to get rid of these toxins, but they are working overtime to process these chemicals and sometimes they need a little help. So it makes sense that the more we can do to reduce the amount of toxins that enter our body the better.

Here we share our top tips for what you can do to help your natural detoxification system work to the best of its ability:

  1. Avoid processed food and cook from scratch as much as possible. Adopt the 80/20 rule.
  2. Try to reduce or eliminate alcohol, caffeine and sugar.
  3. Eat between 5-10 portions of different coloured fruit and vegetables a day.
  4. Make sure to drink plenty of water, prioritise sleep and get sufficient exercise.


All of our food is made from scratch using high-quality ingredients, with no additives or preservatives used. We opt for ingredients that work with your body and leave out triggering foods such as wheat and dairy.
