What you eat is an essential part of your health and wellbeing. Often, factors such as lack of time and stress become barriers on our way to a balanced diet or cleanse. Especially work is an excuse to postpone the Detox programme to the weekend or holidays.
Basically, it's only a lack of ideas or convenience that makes us reach for fast or junk food during our lunch break so that we at least have something to eat. After all, we need energy to cope with our daily work routine. But this is exactly the wrong way. Unhealthy food blocks our bioenergies. The body also uses a large part of our energy to be able to process the food in the first place. The result: we feel tired and listless, become unfocused, are automatically less efficient and need a detox programme even more urgently.
