If you’re constantly tired and reaching for your next pick-me-up, chances are you’re on a blood sugar rollercoaster. When we’re tired, we often reach for even more sugar to counteract the fatigue, which leads to a cycle of sugar-fueled highs and lows. If you decide to cut out sugar, give your body a few days to adjust - and then you’ll begin to feel your energy levels even out.

Our environment is full of toxins. They are in the water we drink, the air we breathe, the food we eat, personal care products and the things we surround ourselves with. Chronic toxicity can show up as a range of different symptoms and while it’s impossible to completely eliminate your exposure to toxins, there are ways to support your body’s own natural detoxification system. A proper detox that contains targeted nutrients to support the liver (the main detoxification organ), fiber to scrub the intestines and anti-microbial herbs to kill the bad bacteria in the gut is the best line of defense to dramatically reduce these symptoms.
You’re working out, watching what you eat and the scale won’t budge. You’re feeling vaguely unwell, tired, and stuck in a rut despite your efforts. So you think to yourself, what the heck is the problem? Chances are, it’s your inflamed gut talking, telling you you’re feeding it wrong. In fact, what you’re feeding it may be a lot more important than how much.
Have you ever thought about going on a cleanse but hesitated, not knowing which one to choose or if it’s the right decision for you? Here at Be Well, we get a lot of questions about cleansing, and we see patients every day who end up embarking on a cleanse and getting great results. We believe cleansing the body isn’t about starving yourself or skipping meals with family and friends. We focus on an elimination diet that rids the body of common allergens and inflammatory foods, and we add in shakes with detoxing nutrients that support liver function (the body's main detoxification organ) and supplements that get rid of bad bacteria in the gut and promote healthy digestion.
