  • Yes, best to wait to detox when you are finished breastfeeding. Lemon in water is a really good way to get your lymph system going though =)

  • There are teas from Alvita that are awesome. The company even helps protect the Earth.


    I wrote a blog about body detox and which teas trigger which area if you want to read it.

  • I just read this statement from a Dr. online:
    "I typically advise moms not to do a stringent detox during breastfeeding (and pregnancy) because the toxins will excrete into the milk. The best time to detox is before pregnancy and after breast feeding."
    You might want to consult w/ your Dr.

  • ya i'm basically trying to get my metabolism to kick back up to where it was. i've heard cleansing can get it going better and gives more energy. i'm exhausted by 6pm so i drag the rest of the night.

  • My SIL swears by this one where you drink water with lemon juice, maple syrup and cayenne for 7-10 days. She said she had more energy than ever in her life.

  • Dr. Natura is good for a detox/ colon cleanse. Check out their website, although I have to warn you, they have lots of gross pictures on there.
