  • 10 days secret plan.

INTRODUCTION: Detox, or to give it its full name ‘detoxification’ has been around since humans first became civilised and is a very natural way of getting rid of harmful pollutants that may have built up in our bodies.

Sometimes people are scared of ‘detoxing’ because they think that it will mean going without food for the entire process and existing only on water with the occasional shot of lemon juice. But this is not the case. Detox is simply a way of cleaning out your body, helping to give the internal organs a little breathing space, so that they can recharge and continue to operate as they should.
In this book you will learn just how to detox safely, with minimum discomfort, so that your body becomes clean, pure and is returned as near as possible, to its optimum state of well being.


Every day people are subjected to toxins. These build up in the body and mean that instead of dealing with natural substances only our poor old kidneys and livers have to handle lots of ‘foreign’ matter, in other words : the ‘terrible toxins’.This can make people more susceptible to stress, so if you are constantly feeling as if you are stressed out and tired, then a detox program could certainly help you to regain some balance.

But there are other symptoms of too many toxins being present in the body and these include:

  • Tiredness,
  • Overly rapid pulse rate
  • Swollen ankles
  • Craving sweet or salty/fatty foods
  • Poor digestion
  • Insomnia
  • Cellulite
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Problems in concentrating
  • Dry mouth

There are many more symptoms, but these are often the most common and the ones that can be most easily remedied, by a simple detox program that will help flush out all those toxins, leaving you fresh and bright, with a renewed vigor and zest for life.

In this article you will learn just how to DETOX safely, with minimum discomfort, so that your body becomes clean, pure and is returned as near as possible, to its optimum state of well being.


Our detox plan is a 10-day one, which will help give you enough time to really cleanse your body, without being too rigorous. You will be living on more than water and a squeeze of lemon juice, so don’t worry you will do just great!
Some detox plans are shorter than 10 days, but they can often be very difficult to follow and so you start off with the best of intentions, but the process is simply too arduous, so what happens? Well you start off day one just great, day two is a bit of a struggle, but on day three, well boy, you have just had enough, so you quit and head down to the nearest burger bar or pizzeria and you are suddenly blitzing your body with toxins that you had actually been trying to get rid of!
That’s isn’t any use, so we are going to take you through a nice, easy detox plan. You will have the chance to pamper yourself, get a little quality time for yourself and just look after yourself for a little bit.CLEANING OUT: THE PROCESS
Ok, so by now you have probably figured out when the best time to detox is and you can’t wait to get started. But before we go into the program, we need to look at the process in terms of what happens to your organs when you detox. Just to give you a little motivation!

THE LIVER: The liver will effectively sweep up all the toxins that are in your body. So this means that when you detox, the liver has a chance to get rid of all the toxins. So how does it do this? Well, giving your liver a bit of a break, through your program, means that it has the time, capacity and the energy to alter toxins, so that it can make them easy to get rid of in your urine.
It also leaks toxins into the bile it produces, which makes it easier for the body to get rid of the toxins through your bowel movements.

THE LUNGS:The lungs will also get some breathing space (excuse the pun please) because they will not have as many toxins coming in and as a result, they can simply breathe out the toxins that are in there. These toxins are the ones that we breathe in, through living in polluted cities.

THE KIDNEY: The kidneys are the unsung heroes of the body! Those little guys are kept really busy, since they take all the waste stuff that is in blood system (up to 12 pints an hour) filter it, take out all the nasty stuff, the toxins and then send the fluid back to the body, so that the blood is cleaned. They keep going, all the time, never usually complain, but giving them a break from having to filter out quite so much junk, will mean that they can work just that little bit more efficiently.


When you get up today, congratulate yourself for doing something really good: for you! Think positively. This is going to be a really exciting 10 days. You are going to have a really good time, You are going to cherish your body. Wow, this is just going to be so good for you, so let’s get started…..
If you want to then you can fast today and drink only water, herbal teas and some fruit juice. However, this is a matter of your personal choice. Many people love this because it immerses them in the detox process immediately and has some kind of symbolism associated with it, so that people can feel cleansed at a very deep, almost spiritual level.

1/2 HOUR BEFORE BREAKFAST: One cup of boiled water (allowed to cool slightly) with a dash of lemon or lime juice in it.
Breakfast: Fruit juice, preferably freshly squeezed with some fruit. Figs or bananas are a good choice. No melon (they can be difficult to digest unless eaten on their own).

Morning Snacks: Fruit: Anything apart from melons.

Lunch: Cooked wholemeal rice and salad washed down with apple or carrot juice.

After noon snack:Chopped or grated carrots, tomatoes, watercress.

Dinner: Salad made from lettuce, celery, watercress, raw broccoli and tomatoes.
