The world is a toxic place. The term “body burden” is the amount of toxins you are sequestering in your body. There appears to be a tipping point in your body above which the accumulation of toxins begins to interpret into disease. You can read more in our “The Body Burden” blog post.
Summer is a great time to detox because you are generally more active and as the weather gets warmer your appetite naturally decreases. In this “The Impetus” I am going to share with you tips and products to naturally detox, while the mercury rises, and reduce your body burden while boosting your energy level.
As a member of the International Wellness Community and a personal self care trainer one of the first questions I ask when the temp goes up is ‘are you drinking enough water?’
The PiMag Sport bottle is not just a state-of-the-art water filter, but also a health product crucial to natural detoxification. The new filter has the ability to significantly reduce certain harmful pathogens in potable drinking water. It’s also a green choice. You won’t be adding to landfills and polluting ocean waters with plastic. Instead, you’ll be saving a fortune by not paying for commercially bottled water. Drink filtered, healthy, alkaline municipally treated water. The PiMag Sport Bottle is the only water bottle that combines three technologies: nano-filtration, alkalization and de-clustering. De-clustering breaks down the water molecule to make it more absorbable. When I am on the go I always have my water bottle. When my hands feel dry I rub a little “PiWater” on the skin and it instantly moisturizes.
Cleanse & Detox
I use Cleanse and Detox on intermittent fast days or if I am not fasting every three months to show my liver some love. Your liver performs more than 500 functions and maintains 2000 plus enzyme systems. Cleanse & Detox is designed to help enhance the three major functions of the liver:
• Cleansing is the process of destroying toxins that come from wastes produced by the body.
• Synthesis involves metabolizing carbohydrates, lipids and proteins as well as producing coagulation factors and bile secretion.*
• Storage of fat-soluble vitamins A, D, K and E in addition to glycogen, makes energy available in the form of sugar when the body needs it.
Bonus: the combination of organic ingredients also help to promote weight loss.
Organic ingredients include: Chicory Root. Milk Thistle, Turmeric, Bupleurum, Schisandra, Ashwaghanda
Dietary exposure to heavy metals may have detrimental effects on human and animal health, even at low concentrations. Specific probiotic bacteria may have properties that enable them to bind toxins from food and water.
The Kenzen Vital Balance (KVB) pea protein shake has got you covered. While I am posting this I am enjoying a delicious chocolate KVB shake with some of my favorite anti-oxidant packed berries, cheers! KVB is designed to help burn fat and boost metabolism as well as promote healthy brain function and the elimination of toxins in the body. With pre- and probiotics to assist in digestive and immune system activity.
It works! My daughter has a shake before she goes to work. She loves it so much she buys her own container.
More about KVB: certified kosher, naturally-sourced protein from organic pea, organic rice and organic chlorella, medium-chain triglycerides, prebiotics, probiotics, organic chlorella and organic cilantro.
Matcha, Matcha, Matcha
I like to wake up my body and mind the healthy way. Kenzen Ten4 is made with USDA certified organic ingredients, contains no sugar and is only 8 calories per serving. Matcha green tea is known as “nature’s own energy drink” while New Zealand kiwi is the most nutrient-dense of the superfruits. Whether it’s 10 am or 4 pm, I always experience hours of energy. Also great for the metabolism.

Heavy metals can be processed out of the body by a magnetic field. Nikken’s Kenko mStrides feature patented DynaFlux® Magnetic Technology. DynaFlux provides 100% coverage and intensifies the magnetic field for greater depth. With mStrides in place, walking creates a dynamic energy flow — in effect, a magnetic field generator inside shoes.
Nikken’s Kenko mSteps insoles feature energizing massage nodes, extraordinary comfort and the same DynaFlux operation that acts like a magnetic field generator inside shoes. DynaFlux Magnetic Technology places magnets in polar opposition to intensify the magnetic field. As you walk, these components change position to produce a dynamic field of energy — and the multiple angles afford 100% magnetic coverage.
I wear them everywhere but especially on the golf course to aid in strength and balance.
