Spring is here. It’s time to shake off that Winter baggage and get ready for the Summer months.
Spring is the perfect time to detox.
Dreaming of bikinis and beaches from my full time job – it’s become ever more clear that the tights and baggy jumpers which were acceptable in winter will now be replaced with skirts and short sleeves. Time to get Summer ready.
Over the Winter months we tend to pick heavier and richer foods to keep us nourished. The dark nights and cold weather keep us in doors and less active than we naturally are in the summer months.
This combination of heavy foods and less activity can often lead you to feel a little bit sluggish and bloated. Bloating is one of the worst afflictions you can have as it makes you feel unwell, rubbish and generally unattractive. Anything that can get rid of that feeling is a winner in my eyes.
In order to get the ball rolling I have taken on the 30 day teami detox!
I’m going to share with you my reviews and opinions throughout the detox. (Use my discount code: CYNTRA10)
Teami 30 day detox comes with two parts: The Teami Skinny and Teami Colon… (hate the names but give some clarity)
The Skinny Tea is a tea which you blend with hot water in a cute shaker you can buy from their site or in a tea infuser.
Its made up of a blend of Oolong, Yerba Mate, Lime leaf Extract, Lotus leaf, Ginger Root, Dandelion leaf, Rhubarb Root. I thought it may taste a little bit earthy when the bag arrived… something you may find the hippiest of folk drinking… however it has now taken the place of my morning espresso. (don’t worry I haven’t gone made I still have my morning hit of coffee around 10am)
The tea tastes good and you can sweeten it with honey or lemon but I haven’t felt the need to do this yet. Throughout the day you can top it up with hot water to re-use the leaves.
I have found it has reduced cravings and also is great after a meal mid afternoon to keep me relaxed. I am not sure if it is mind over matter but I don’t feel the need to snack in the afternoons since having this tea.
This is just the beginning of me using it – I will keep you updated through my detox.
The Colon Tea – what a pretty name. This tea is taken every other day of the detox. I am now going to put in a disclaimer. Careful with this one.
TeaMi describe the tea as “TeaMi Colon Cleanse Tea is used to purify the body from the inside out, cleansing the organs while simultaneously clearing the digestive tract of any toxins caused primarily by pollution, harsh chemicals and processed foods.” yes this means you will be taking a trip to the bathroom.
I endured terrible stomach cramps the first two times I tried this. I contacted Teami and they have assured me this is natural and this is my colon ridding itself of all the toxins. They said it should stop happening as I continue through the cleanse. I will let you know.
Bonus: Bloating has significantly diminished. It was great waking up and feeling fresh and ready to go.
Tea Detox have been making headlines in the bloggers world for a while now. I think that they can work as long as they are used as part of a healthy workout plan.
1 Food – number 1 priority
2 Wellbeing – meditation, teas, relaxation
3 Exercise – keeping it all long and lean
