Love Your Liver

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

There has been a lot of talk in the press this week about detoxing and after a heavy month of parties and far too much champagne many people think that spending all of January off the booze will do them a lot of good, but according to a report by the BBC on the 1st of January 2012 The British Liver Trust is saying that taking a month off will only do minimal good to the liver if we go right back to regular bouts of drinking.

Those of you who have been following my work for a long time will know that the key to a healthy liver is balanced and healthy lifestyle rather than binging and looking for quick fixes to make it all better.

My 21 day plan is not a quick fix by any means, what it does is teach people how to keep the nasties down to a minimum and move into a healthier, more nourishing lifestyle by choosing healthy, delicious foods that not only taste great but also support the body and cultivate healthier long term choices.

New research is also confirming what Ayuvedic and Chinese medicine, which are centuries old and steeped in tradition have been teaching for centuries, that we must look at the bigger picture of our lifestyle choices if we want to make true changes and seek to achieve a more balanced state.

The British Liver Trust’s new health campaign is saying the best New Year’s resolution for the liver would be to stay off alcohol for two or three days every week, because unless there is long term or serious damage, then the liver can start to repair itself in just 24 hours.

Keeping alcohol intake down to a minimum and taking regular breaks or 2-3 days per week in the long term is far better than abstaining for a month and then going back to a regular Friday night binge.

To support liver function you might like to try Joshi’s Liver Formula which along with a healthy lifestyle will provide excellent support to your liver

How to enjoy any festive meal the Joshi way

Friday, December 23rd, 2011

With the festive season in full swing I hope you are all having a great time with family and friends and staying healthy!

There can be a tendancy to over indulge during this time of year and then spend most of January trying to repair the damage and feeling slightly guilty, but it really doesent have to be this way, you can still enjoy the festive season by making a few small changes and adjustments you will still look and feel fabulous afterwards!

1. Try to fill up on vegetables and avoid the stodgy breads and starters
2. Be kind to your body, rather than over indulging in rich desserts, share one with a friend or even better, just enjoy the first bite, you really dont need more.
3. Try an organic nut roast in place of traditional stuffing, its delicious!
4. Watch your drinking! Stick to just one or two alcoholic drinks and then move on to water, to make your water more interesting add some slices of lemons, cucumbers and strawberries.
5. Eat consiously, put your fork down between bites, stop when you feel full and chew your food thoroughly.
6. Replace cakes and pies with delicious fruit salads, frozen fat free yoghurts and delicious smoothies!
7. Tuck into the turkey, its full of feel good substances that boost the mood!

Have a lovely week and stay healthy!
