The phrase ‘mens sana in corpore sano‘ (a healthy mind in a healthy body) is certainly not a simple saying. A healthy body is the best medicine for mental well-being.
It is important to realise that a detoxifying process is not only about the body, but also and above all about the mind. This, however, is by far not easy in our modern lifestyle, not least as a result of the constant level of stress.
With the advent of the pandemic, our lives have become even more complicated: all kinds of insecurities, commitments and schedules to be met, goals to be achieved, hurry, children and/or people to take care of, always having to be nice and helpful even when we are exhausted, going to sleep without having had a single moment to dedicate to ourselves.
All this affects the body and the mind!
Detoxifying the mind by starting from the body
What are the possible consequences of maintaining these negative habits for weeks or even months? Undoubtedly they lead to a accumulation of toxins in our body, they cause stress and make our mind reach its limit.
Not least because we try to convince ourselves that the pressures are normal and that we have to bear them, or that we cannot change things for the time being.
It is exactly from this state of psychological stress that negative thoughts and feelings such as frustration or low self-confidence are triggered, and it could therefore be said that our brain is also being intoxicated.
Who doesn’t experience a heated discussion or constant worries? All of this is just as toxic as powerful food indigestion: whatever the cause, the biochemical process is the same and it is equally toxic
At this point, it is essential to understand that detoxifying the body also helps the brain: it triggers a virtuous cycle that helps to release tensions, making us more emotionally balanced and serene, which is the basic requirement for facing and solving the various problems of everyday life, rather than succumbing to them.
How to start purifying and detoxifying?
The many toxins that we introduce can derive from various causes: from a diet that may be inadequate, incorrect or excessive, from the increasingly polluted environment (air, water, earth) or from treatment with medicines; they are inevitably deposited in the tissues and release free radicals that lead to strong oxidative stress.
This condition is certainly one of the most dangerous for our organism. Waste and toxins, both biological and psychological, over time “pollute” and stress our body.
There are several theories as to why we fall ill during the year, one of which is the toxaemia.
In Naturopathy, a science with ancient origins, it has been seen that the excess and accumulation of toxins in the body make us ill. Many people think that it is only necessary to purify the body when serious diseases occur.
In actual fact, maintaining a healthy, detoxified body is vitally important to prevent the accumulation of toxins that inevitably lead to illness.
What remedies should be used to detoxify?
In order to purify and detoxify in depth, it is essential to make a distinction between one ancient plant and others. Understanding this difference is very important, especially in relation to the therapeutic virtues of this plant and their effectiveness.
Obviously we are talking about the olive tree, the health tree for excellence, the Leonardo Da Vinci of plants. It represents for the plant world what the diamond is for the mineral world, its highest and most precious expression.
During its long evolution, in order to achieve its extraordinary longevity and ability to live for thousands of years, it has had to learn to eliminate/discard anything that was not useful to its lymphs, and therefore potentially dangerous.
This explains its powerful purifying action: it eliminates from the cell everything that it does not need, and which therefore pollutes and ‘threatens’ it.
Rigorous scientific studies demonstrate its particular action against bacteria, viruses and toxins of all kinds. It reduces sugars, fats and uric acids from the blood (alkalinising).
This is definitely the best time to detoxify and purify our organism of biological and above all psychological waste and toxins, supporting our main excretory organs (kidneys, intestines, liver).
For our immunity system, purification is of fundamental importance: it will be strengthened because it will no longer be overloaded with the task of expelling excess toxins and will be more reactive and efficient against bacteria and viruses.
What are the symptoms of an intoxicated body?
The state of our body’s intoxication can be quantified by testing the free radicals in the blood. Alternatively, the following symptoms help us to understand if and how intoxicated we are:
- Bad breath.
- Soggy mouth in the morning.
- Dull skin and increased wrinkles.
- Water retention.
If you see/feel at least a couple of these symptoms when you wake up in the morning, your body is asking for help. If you add to these:
- Difficulty losing weight.
- Physical and mental weakness.
- Unstable or bad mood.
- Lack of memory.
- Lack of concentration.
- Lack of mental lucidity.
Then your body really needs to be purified. How will you feel afterwards?

After having a proper purification of the body, you will see deep and highly positive changes. Here is a list of the most evident benefits:
