THE DIGITAL COACH
“The best way to carry out a one – week detox programme is to eat healthily at lunchtime, then go on a mono – diet in the evening: one seasonal veg or as much vegetable broth as you want. The less complex the meal, the more rest your body gets. You can add a dash of aloe vera juice to boost liver draining. Or a clay cure to restore the minerals, in addition to purifying the body.”
Tigre Yoga Club, 19, rue de Chaillot, Paris 16th “A good way to optimise the effects of a detox diet is to enrich your mineral water with the floral water of wild carrot, juniper and rosemary ( a soup spoon of each per litre ). They are full of active molecules that will help drain the toxins away. Have a glass of warm water in the morning, then a spoonful of fresh pollen to clean your digestive system, as well as a green juice, if possible sprinkled with anti – inflammatory ginger and turmeric. And since the kidneys are put to the test during a detox, you can stimulate them by rubbing in a drop of essential oil of black spruce daily.”
