I’m so happy to have had the chance to interview Megan Blacksmith, a certified holistic health coach who graduated from Institute of Integrative Nutrition in New York. She has made it her mission to help women work through their chronic medical conditions. She also teaches women how to detox the right way so they can move further along their journey to health and wellness.
Below is the summary of what we covered in our fruitful interview:
What is Detoxification?
If you want to know how to detox the right way, you must first understand what detoxification means. The most widespread myth about detoxification is that it’s just a quick fix — you either starve yourself, take a powder, or drink some lemon-cayenne mixture. After using these “detoxification” methods, you can eat whatever you ate before. Nothing can be farther from the truth.
Detoxification is the natural process by which the body removes the toxins that we took in through breath, food, water, and skin. Your body is naturally detoxing every single day. We should focus on supporting that natural process. We want to make it easier by getting rid of the toxins that are already in the body. However, we also need to prevent new toxins from coming in.
Our bodies are made to deal with toxins, but when there’s just too much toxins coming in from the environment, the body may not be able to keep up.
Last episode was a coaching session, and it was all about perfectionism. The quest for perfection can rob you of joy and peace of mind. In this coaching session, I shared my insights as well as some tips on how to overcome perfectionism. I highly recommend that you listen to it!
