The Best Way to Detox

January has historically been the month of diets and detoxes. But the truth is, most popular detox products and programmes available are at best pointless and at worst harmful to health. So if you’re looking to embark on a health kick, how can you help your body’s detoxification processes this New Year?

The first thing to remember is that our body is very efficient at eliminating potentially harmful waste products – if we take care of it. One thing that we can all do to reduce our toxic load it to stop taking in so many harmful substances in the first place. It sounds so obvious and yet this is so often overlooked.

You may well be aware that things like caffeine, tobacco and alcohol feature high on the list of things to cut down / eliminate. To learn more about the link between alcohol and your weight, click here.

However there are a number of other ways that we expose our body to harmful chemicals that we might not be so aware of.

The truth is, we live in a toxic world. Household cleaning products, environmental pollutants, pesticide residues on our food… these all contribute to our toxic load. The more we can reduce our exposure to these things, the more we can help our body help itself.

Here are a few ways that you can reduce your daily exposure:


Natural based dishwasher tablets, washing up liquid and surface cleaners are all a good idea. Most supermarkets now offer a selection. Ecover offer a great selection of products. Think twice about the type of air fresheners you’re using too.


Remember – what we put on our skin is absorbed into our system. The Environmental Working Group’s cosmetic database Skin Deep is a fantastic way to check whether cosmetic products contain harmful chemicals.


It’s worth the investment! If you aren’t ready to go 100% organic, there are some foods to prioritise. I always advise choosing organic meat and dairy products (if you eat them). As for fruit and veg, it’s worth checking out The Environmental Working Group’s ‘Clean Fifteen and Dirty Dozen‘.


I am not for a moment advising that you stop any essential medication or discontinue a prescription without speaking to your doctor. But many of us pop painkillers and other non essential medication without giving it a second thought. Consider whether you really need it. Is there a natural alternative? Maybe tiredness, stress, alcohol or dehydration has made your symptoms worse? Whilst I don’t want you to suffer, it really is worth asking yourself twice before taking a medicine you might not really need.

While it’s impossible to eliminate all potentially harmful chemicals from our world, once you start to question those things you can control, you might just realise there are a few things that you can do to help reduce your exposure.

So this new year, help your to body detox by simply giving it less to detox in the first place…


Sarah has worked with hundreds of clients over the past decade to help them live in a healthy body that they feel confident in.

Sarah spent a large part of her teens and 20’s as a professional dancer battling with orthorexia and an unhealthy relationship with food and her body.

Sarah specialises in supporting women who are struggling to lose weight due to underlying health issues. She’s helped many women manage their weight during and after the menopause, as well as clients with thyroid disease and immune system dysfunction. Sarah loves food and sharing healthy recipes with her clients.
