Why You Should Go On A 10 Day Detox 

Modern living, exposure to pollution and free radicals, and unhealthy eating choices all contribute to the variety of illnesses plaguing our society. But there is something you can do about the build-up of toxins and free radicals in your body. Detox.

You’ve probably heard about Dr. Mark Hyman’s 10-day detox recipes. His recipes are designed to cleanse your system of harmful toxins, reset your metabolism and eliminate unhealthy cravings. They will also assist you with the start of your weight-loss journey. 

But detoxing is not just for people who want to shed a few pounds. A good detox plan helps to lessen the risk of chronic health problems like type 2 diabetes. It also reduces the severity of auto-immune disorders and allergic responses like asthma, acne, and eczema.

And you’ll also see a reduction in joint pain, digestive problems, and headaches. You’ll feel brand new, on the inside. But what do you eat when detoxing?

How Do I Know If I Need To Go On A 10 Day Detox?

The digestive system and liver are often the worst affected when it comes to leading an unhealthy lifestyle. And this can have serious repercussions for your health. 

When your digestive system and liver are overburdened you will quickly notice the signs of toxicity. And you’ll be able to respond to your body’s cry for help, with a 10-day detox. This will decrease the risk of lifestyle-associated illnesses and give you newfound energy too.

These are signs that indicate you need to detox your system:

  • Digestive issues/ bloating
  • Dull skin/ skin breakouts
  • Worsening of allergies
  • Chronic fatigue/ lack of energy
  • Constant sugar cravings
  • Struggling to lose weight
  • Regular joint pain
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Unpleasant body odor
  • Unable to focus
  • Insomnia
  • Frequent cold sore breakouts

How Will A 10 Day Detox Help Me Lose Weight?

dr hyman recipes 10 day detox

There are two main reasons why a 10-day detox will help you lose weight. The most obvious one is that you are consuming far fewer calories than you normally would. 

Less calorie consumption means less excess calories. And that’s good news for weight loss because it means less will end up getting stored as unhealthy fat.

Another reason why you may lose weight on a 10-day detox is that it resets your metabolism. If your metabolism is not performing as it should, you don’t burn enough calories. 

And you store the excess of fat. Which you then struggle to burn off. So kickstarting your metabolism is key to weight loss. And a 10-day detox will do exactly that.

Are There Any Side Effects With A 10 Day Detox?

While on a detox program of any type, especially if longer than 3 days, you will see great benefits. But you may also experience some side effects. This is perfectly normal and is in fact a sign that the detox is working.

Please take note that everyone reacts to a detox, differently. This is because our levels of toxicity differ. The more toxins your body needs to be rid of, the more side effects you may experience. You may experience none, some, or even all of these side effects. 

  • Extreme Fatigue/ Weakness
  • Headaches
  • Increased bowel movements/ More Frequent urination
  • Bad Breath/ Strong Body Odor
  • Flatulence
  • Nausea/ Hunger Pangs/  Cravings
  • Insomnia
  • Irritability

Is It Safe To Exercise While On A 10 Day Detox?

Although one of the benefits of a 10-day detox is renewed energy, while the process is ongoing you will be low on energy. 

The reason for this is that you’re taking in far fewer calories than normal. You may also feel sluggish due to the toxins working their way out of your system. 

Therefore, heavy exercise and high-intensity workouts are not advised at this time. You may resume these activities a couple of days after the completion of your 10-day detox. 

Light exercise such as walking is recommended. And the gentler forms of exercise like yoga and pilates should be safe to continue with. In fact, they may be of great benefit, helping to expel the toxins from your system.
