What is the first thought that comes to your mind when someone mentions the word ‘detox’? I’m pretty sure that you either think about diets, nutrition, or regimes. Well, you are not entirely wrong. Although detoxification is widely done to remove toxins from the body and promote weight loss, it can also be used to improve your mental well-being.
There are many physical benefits to detoxing such as increased energy, joint pain relief as well as improved sleep and digestion. Detoxing also holds many benefits for your mental wellness including stabilised moods, improved focus and mental clarity.
Here are some of the best places around the world to visit for a rejuvenating wellness detox experience.
