Fibro-Fix 21-Day Detox Box
The Importance of Detoxification
The goal of this program is to gently and slowly support the process of metabolic detoxification. We live in an ever-increasingly toxic environment. Many of the toxins, also known as Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs), are abundant in the environment today and did not exist 30 years ago. These new toxins include certain pesticides, herbicides, and industrial chemicals that can enter the body through food, water, and air supplies. These toxins can and often do become trapped in the body's organs and tissues, which over time can negatively impact health, vitality, and overall wellness, and may contribute to the development of chronic illness. A detoxification program should be simple to complete, effective in outcome, and without concern for safety. By supporting the body’s natural two-phase process of detoxification, toxins can safely and effectively be cleansed from the body.

Notes on Plastic
Never heat food in plastic, as this process releases harmful chemicals that can seep into your food. Use glass or ceramic instead.
Skin Brushing
To aid in lymphatic drainage, use a dry, natural fiber shower brush or loofah to massage your entire body before you shower or bathe. Start at the toes, and gently scrub, using circular motions toward your heart.
Clean Water
Public tap water is often contaminated. Drink and cook with only pure, filtered water and consider adding a filter to your shower.
Microwave Ovens
Although the convenience of microwaves is indisputable, this method of heating can disrupt chemical linkages in otherwise healthy foods and can decrease their nutritional value. Heat on a stovetop or in an oven whenever possible and use a cast iron pan. Avoid Teflon and synthetic non-stick coatings.
Exercise
One of the best ways to increase your metabolic activity is to simply use your body. Daily exercise has innumerable benefits including building lean muscle mass, which helps you burn more calories at rest. Consider jumping on a mini trampoline for 3-5 minutes a day to boost your health and vitality. Sweating also releases toxins.
