Have you heard of detoxing? It’s becoming increasingly popular as a way to quickly lose weight, get healthy again or just as a way to cleanse your whole body and mind and have a fresh start. But what exactly is it? And how should you detox?
I decided to write a short series on this as i have decided to go on a detox retreat myself. I will give you a full writeup on detox retreats soon, but today I will present you with an article of Dr Yeoh about detoxing with Neera Detox.

Are you struggling with excess weight or not feeling quite yourself? Perhaps it is time to detoxify and cleanse your body of toxins and waste products. Find out how a detox diet can help. In the process lose weight and defy the aging process!
Why should you detoxify?
Life is lived the fast way. We don’t always take time to eat properly and even if we do, many food products have been treated with harmful pesticides. Meat may be contaminated with antibiotics, preservatives or growth hormones. Foods that we love to eat like pizza, pasta and burgers are full of sugar or have too much salt or saturated fat. Add a daily dose of stress to all of this and toxins are easily build up and accumulate.
Rather then being eliminated, some of the toxins get stored directly in fatty tissues under the skin. This is how the body prevents them from entering the bloodstream. If toxins continue to build up new cell formation is disrupted and this can weaken your immune system, which can lead to a wide range of health problems from sinusitis, acne, viral infections and migraines.
How do you know that you have too much toxic buildup?
Common first signs of toxic buildup are:
- weight gain
- aches and pains
- constipation or diarrhoea
- chronic fatique
- and depression.
So how can we detox?
Detoxification is done naturally by the body every day. However, when we overeat the body gets overloaded and cannot cope. The more you eat the more metabolic waste you produce. It is a known fact that if you reduce the amount you eat, you reduce stress on the body, thereby decreasing the chance for developing disease, and you live healthier.
If you include fasting on a regular basis you can slow down the aging process by lowering your body’s metabolic waste. An added benefit is that fasting will help you lose weight as well which will improve your general health.
Why do I need to stop eating while detoxifying?
These are the main reasons that it is recommended not to eat while detoxifying:
- The chemicals and additives that the food contains will hinder your ability to release toxic buildup in your body.
- Eating requires too much energy from your body! When you give your digestive system a rest, the body begins to heal.
- When you stop eating, the body will need to get its energy from somewhere else and it will start to burn your damaged cells and fat for fuel. This will promote the disposal of metabolic waste and new (healthy) cell formation, rejuvenating your body.
How can Neera Detox help with your detox diet?
In order to make sure that your body still gets the necessary nutrients for proper functioning you can cleanse with the help of Neera Detox. Neera Detox is a detox diet that supplies your body with 400-500 calories rich in minerals, trace elements and simple sugars. It consists of taking 3 ingredients in a pleasant drink: maple syrup, cayenne pepper and lemon, to enrich your body and flush out harmful toxins.
It helps to give you all the nutrients needed for proper functioning while not burdening the digestive system so it can rest. It also provides a liquid medium to flush away the toxic substances in your body and acts as an internal detergent to dissolve excess fat. The cayenne pepper speeds up metabolism and promotes circulation. Its main ingredient Madal Bal Syrup, a special blend of organic tree syrup from the sap of 5 types of trees, provides energy and is mineral-rich containing vitamin C and essential minerals like potassium, manganese, sodium, calcium and zinc.
