Trees detox at this time of year. You should, too.
By Eva Cwynar

Every fall, many types of trees shed their leaves in order to survive harsh weather conditions. In the Northern Hemisphere, trees shed their leaves during autumn as cold weather approaches. In more tropical areas, trees shed their leaves when the dry season begins. By shedding, they're not only getting ready for winter. They're essentially detoxing.

We can't drop our leaves in order to prepare for the coming season, but we can detox another way and in the process shed not only toxins but perhaps even a bit of weight.

Every day we're exposed to harmful toxins that enter the body through the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe, and the things we allow to touch our skin.

These toxins can cause problems from bloating to difficulty concentrating, excess weight gain, headaches, joint pain, muscle aches and sleep problems among others.

If you suffer from arthritis, allergies, autoimmune diseases, chronic fatigue syndrome, heart disease, menopause symptoms and menstrual problems, a good detox can help you to feel better.

Toxic overload can disrupt your body's ability to fight illnesses, but reducing toxins can help get your body back on track. Some of the benefits include:

• Better digestion
• Better sleep
• Decreased chronic pain
• Eliminated hot flashes
• Flatter stomach
• Reduced acne

When you detox with my Detox Kit, you might also experience more energy and feel happier in general. It's the perfect way to approach the new and upcoming season, and get ready for that little black dress.
