Alcohol Detox…Wellness Wednesday!

#wellnesswednesday

Your body may be sending you signals that you need to take a break from alcohol. It may be time to detox alcohol from your body if you are feeling run down and tired, having digestive problems or experiencing achy muscles. If you drink and party regularly and have any of these symptoms, a simple alcohol detox may be for you.

With repeated or long term use, alcohol can cause liver and kidney problems, addiction and weight gain. While drinking and partying often seem harmless, ingesting alcohol on a regular basis can lead to the build up of toxins and sugars and eventually to alcoholism, or addiction to alcohol. Overuse and dependence on alcohol can have serious health risks as well.

However, most of you don’t have a serious problem; and use alcohol socially. Even so, what can we do to limit the long term effects of alcohol usage?

In its simplest form, an alcohol detoxification program simply involves abstaining from alcohol for a period of time and allowing the body to eliminate all traces of the substance from the tissues and blood stream.

Most healthcare professionals recommend at least one to four weeks of no alcohol. However, if you are a heavy drinker or suspect that you may be an alcoholic, cutting back or switching from hard liquor to wine for the first few days or a week may be easier for you to handle. Many people who have developed a dependence on alcohol will experience uncomfortable withdrawal symptoms like sweating, trembling and an almost overwhelming craving for alcohol.

Allowing your body a “vacation” from drinking may eventually lead to healthier habits, as you experience increased energy and vitality after your body begins to recover. During this period, take the chance to also do a colon, liver and kidney cleanse. Many report an increase in energy, sexual drive and function and a decrease of appetite after the detox period.

Allow your body to recover and rest. Take a break from alcohol for a month and you may be surprised at how great you feel!

What she said about working with me👇🏾

I owe more than great gratitude to Olivia B. Shepherd for helping me regain my freedom and my life back again. I’ve always worried very much but things got much worse with time and at my lowest point, I couldn’t stand large crowds and was afraid of driving alone. The only place I felt safe was around my family. My mom heard about Olivia from a friend and got me signed up. Everything has been a fairytale ever since. She has equipped me with techniques to deal with my depression and anxiety issues. Her love and support has helped cast worries and fear out of my life. I can’t put a price on the assistance I’ve got so far, you are a God send Olivia. Loads of thanks!
