There has been a lot of talk in the press this week about detoxing and after a heavy month of parties and far too much champagne many people think that spending all of January off the booze will do them a lot of good, but according to a report by the BBC on the 1st of January 2012 The British Liver Trust is saying that taking a month off will only do minimal good to the liver if we go right back to regular bouts of drinking.
Those of you who have been following my work for a long time will know that the key to a healthy liver is balanced and healthy lifestyle rather than binging and looking for quick fixes to make it all better.
My 21 day plan is not a quick fix by any means, what it does is teach people how to keep the nasties down to a minimum and move into a healthier, more nourishing lifestyle by choosing healthy, delicious foods that not only taste great but also support the body and cultivate healthier long term choices.
New research is also confirming what Ayuvedic and Chinese medicine, which are centuries old and steeped in tradition have been teaching for centuries, that we must look at the bigger picture of our lifestyle choices if we want to make true changes and seek to achieve a more balanced state.
The British Liver Trust’s new health campaign is saying the best New Year’s resolution for the liver would be to stay off alcohol for two or three days every week, because unless there is long term or serious damage, then the liver can start to repair itself in just 24 hours.
Keeping alcohol intake down to a minimum and taking regular breaks or 2-3 days per week in the long term is far better than abstaining for a month and then going back to a regular Friday night binge.
