“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.” With an eye in­creas­ingly on per­for­mance, it isn’t enough for the lat­est con­nected ac­ces­sories to record our bio­met­ric mea­sure­ments.
