Nosh Detox

Nosh Weekend Detox
Detoxing in London is hard and necessary, especially in the fashion industry. With events that essentially pour drinks down your throat, indulgent lunch meetings, and nights that never end on the right side of midnight, you can’t complain. However, sometimes I feel like my body is screaming “Toxins! Toxins!” at me as I can add an allergy to wheat and gluten to the above list (that is frequently ignored).

Thank God for Nosh Detox. Not everyone can afford the time, effort or money to book into a spa, hide out in a health club, or fly to Mallorca for a weekend detox. Now, well-being delivery service Nosh has developed a unique Weekend Detox package to help you detox, lose any ‘unhealthy’ weight and improve overall health and well-being, so that you feel and look noticeably better after just three days. Nutritional Technician and author Geeta Sidhu-Robb founded the Chelsea-based company in 2004 – I can’t believe I’ve just got around to trying it out!

The Weekend Detox package comes with an ‘Immune Booster Box‘ that helps you with hemp oil, aloe vera, an ayurvedic cleanse, bee pollen, homemade salt scrubs and herbal teas to help you through your detox. Everything was absolutely delicious, and a fantastic learning experience. I constantly felt full, healthy, and full of energy – didn’t reach for a single cup of coffee. Never has a detox worked so fast for me! A Nosh Juice Fast is also available, as well as the ‘ABC Plan’. For further information on them – visit here after taking a look at a sample menu below.
