When you have PCOS it’s vitally important to minimise exposure to environmental chemicals, as many of them can disrupt your hormones and overall health. But minimising exposure often isn’t enough, as the Power Over PCOS book explains. To get the best health results, you also need to maximise elimination of these chemicals and waste products from your body, especially if you’re overweight, because fat cells act as storage sites for toxins. When you lose weight, these toxins are released, which can create a lot of stress within the body until they are eliminated. They can even cause you to have a ‘plateau’ in your weight loss.
You can enhance the elimination of toxins and wastes by performing a proper detoxification program. By proper, I mean one that is safe and clinically effective, not one of those rapid detox fads. The exact program I have used with myself and my patients is in my book, and is often the missing link in many PCOS treatment programs. Today I will share with you a shorter version of this program, what I like to call the ‘mini-detox’. Although I recommend doing the full program at least once, the mini-detox is a good program to do periodically to keep your body working well. It can also be a good introduction to detoxing if you haven’t done it before.
