Step two: Inner Body Bright Spring Detox 2023

Are you curious if you've mastered last week's step one of daily detoxification? How do you know if you're drinking enough water for your individual needs? One sign of OVER HYDRATION is the consistent need to urinate more often than every 1.5 hrs. While one sign of UNDER HYDRATION is skin tenting, pinch the skin up on the back of your hand, if it stays tented that's a good sign your body and skin tissue need further hydration.

Step two towards detoxification through better elimination is adding dietary fiber. Ideally we want our bowels to move 1-3 times per day in a formed, soft, J or S shaped stool. I suggest consuming 25-30 grams of fiber daily. Foods that naturally contain lots of fiber and water like fruits, vegetables, legumes and cooked whole grains are a good place to start, but most of us have to supplement with a fiber rich seed to bring our totals up to goal levels. My favorites for women are ground flax seed, as the lignans in flax seeds also provide some gentle hormone balancing. Or, add ground chia seeds which are also rich in protein and omega three fatty acids. Psyllium and bran are also effective & popular choices, but may irritate the bowel in a segment of the population.
