How To Thrive In a Toxic World – with Nutritionist and Naturopath Hashmira Sloane

Heart-Hands-over-Tummy_06-03-2014

We were joined by Hashmira Sloane – Nutritionist and Naturopath at Alkaline Spa in Potts Point who spent the evening with health and wellness enthusiasts at The Farm Wholefoods.

Hashmira was giving us the ‘inside ‘version of how our bodies cope with the flood of both environmental and food carried chemicals we  ingest daily.

The big question asked was that, in order to maintain a thriving wellness do we need to detox regularly and how and what can we be more aware of how to reduce chemical intake?

Hashmira understood that most people were a little fearful and confused about detoxification. Her reassuring answer was that our bodies are built to do this involuntarily on its own providing we give it the rest it needs and to nourish it with the foods it needs to function well.

Hashmira also stressed that  it’s not about depriving our bodies but abundantly filling it with a broad spectrum ‘rainbow’ of foods to assist in the removing of by product and replacing of nutrients to keep the machine well functioning.

Some of the foods that were said to assist in detoxification were cruciferous vegetables, these include:

  • Arugula
  • Bok choy
  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Collard greens
  • Horseradish
  • Kale
  • Radishes
  • Rutabaga
  • Turnips
  • Watercress
  • Wasabi

We also learnt about the everyday foods that hold a high content of nasty chemicals that we should definitely second think before putting them into your beautiful bodies.

The last part of the evening we were introduced to some of the treatments at Alkaline Spa that encourage elimination of toxins such as the body wraps and colonics.

Goody bags included a  $25 gift voucher from Alkaline spa to enjoy their treatments.
