3 Ways a Detox Makes You Feel Better

It’s that time of year! The holidays have wrapped up, and 2020 is finally in the rearview mirror. January is all about looking ahead with optimism. It’s a time for new beginnings, fresh focus, and resetting.

This is the perfect time to start thinking about how to reset your body after the past couple of months of wining and dining. Even if you managed to escape the holidays without gaining any extra weight, you may have still over-indulged and are left feeling a bit sluggish.

But instead of signing up for a fad diet (which we definitely don’t recommend!), why not consider a 21-day detox instead? Here are three reasons why detoxification may be just what you and your body need:

1. A Detox Boosts Your Energy

Whether it’s the water you drink, foods you eat, or air you breathe, you’re affected by the chemicals in your environment. These chemicals can impair how your body functions, which can leave you feeling fatigued or hazy with brain fog. (Remember the last time you ate a huge meal or a sweet dessert, and you felt lethargic or fuzzy? It’s the same concept!)

Flushing these chemicals out of your body frees up your body’s energy, leaving you feeling refreshed and energized.

2. It Improves Your Digestion

Think about all the things your body absorbs – foods, drinks, and beauty products, to name a few.

All of these get absorbed by the body and can take a toll on your liver and digestive system, causing unwanted gut issues. During a detox, you’re feeding your body quality, unprocessed foods, and supporting it with the right kind of supplements. This helps remove the toxins that can wreak havoc on your digestion and can even help reduce constipation and bloating.

3. Detoxing Gives Your Organs a Chance to Do Some Early Spring Cleaning

A cleanse is designed to help your body naturally flush out toxins and support several key areas – namely, your lungs, brain, kidneys, digestive tract, bloodstream, skin, and liver.

Your organs, especially your liver, are powerhouses when it comes to expelling toxins. But as you go about your normal life, your body accumulates clutter and debris. When this happens, your liver can become less efficient.

Think of it like a highway during rush hour. The congestion of cars causes slowdowns, and nothing is moving as it should.

Gently detoxing helps to clear the roadways in your body and support your organs so they can keep doing what they do best.

Show Your Body Some Love With A Detox

We all want a vibrant body, tons of energy, and a clear mind. An annual detox can help you achieve just that.

By giving your system a break from your normal foods (or those holiday treats!), you’re giving it the added care and support it needs to keep you strong and healthy.

If you’d like to give your body a jumpstart with a gentle but super-effective cleanse, consider trying our 21-day detox [hyperlink]. And as always, if you have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out. We’re here to support you and keep your body running smoothly!

Happy Patients

I have had back issues most of my life. Since starting treatments with Dr Greg I have had no more issues. It's such a relief to be able to be physical at the high level I want to be. I am able to maintain wellness by seeing Dr Greg on a regular basis. Thank you Dr Greg!!

Hello! I just want to say that you are truly a healer! After leaving your office last Monday, I was more able to breathe, truly breathe - after having suffered all weekend to take a deep breath due to a "rib out of place" OK - if you say so....all I know is that, though I continued to have a bit of pain in my upper back and neck for a day or two, I could take wonderful, glorious deep breaths thanks to your treatment. Thanks again for all you do! Even if I do make many sound affects while you are treating me - "OUCH!!! Hmmmph!! Ughhh!! Really???" I truly appreciate your healing touch....


I have had Parkinson's Disease for 8 years.  I have developed arthritis in my back and hips. The stiffness of the Parkinson's and the arthritis has caused me a lot of pain. Because of that unrelenting pain I was unable to exercise. Exercise is an important part of pain management for Parkinson's.  Since I have been seeing Dr. Krapf I am feeling much better and his care has allowed me to begin exercising again, which has improved my overall well being. In the past I have been treated by physical therapists and orthopedists. Dr. Krapf's chiropractic manipulations have had an amazing impact on my health and happiness. I highly recommend Dr. Krapf to anyone who needs excellent chiropractic care and the many alternative therapies he offers. I would say he is magical!

When my friend received excellent care from Dr. Krapf, she recommended him to me. I have had gastrointestinal problems for nearly 50 years that have recently been diagnosed with celiac disease with lactose intolerance. All that, including unrelieved stress had made me unhappy and unhealthy. Today I am a different person with the help of Dr. Greg. The Gastro issues are practically nonexistent, my stress levels have plummeted, and my body is changing. I am so grateful for Dr. Greg and his healing hands.

Our family have been patients of Krapf chiropractic for a few decades. We have several success stories archived. The most recent event involves our youngest son who is completing his senior year of high school. He has been a patient of Krapf Chiropractic (KCA) since birth. He has been an avid soccer player since the age of four and has sustained numerous injuries over the years. Dr. Krapf has successfully assisted in every recovery.

Most recently, he began complaining of his feet hurting while playing soccer. Both feet hurt - particularly the balls of his feet while running and cutting. He came to Dr. Greg with his complaint as this was seriously affecting his game. Dr. Greg evaluated the situation and decided a foot scan should be done. The finding was dropped arches. My son was fitted for orthotics. They arrived within days and he wore these as directed. Within a few short weeks he is now playing full games pain free.


I first called Krapf Chiropractic when my back was so bad that I couldn't get up off the floor. It's been a blessing to have Dr. Greg help me with my overall wellness and health! I find this to be a place where you are not a number and everyone cares. Mollie is always cheerful and reminds me to come. Erin is always smiling and helps relax me when I'm in pain. I would not be functioning if I did not have Krapf Chiropractic to keep me going. As I get older my appreciation deepens, especially when I see people around me who are suffering with back problems. If they only knew how helpful this is. I believe Dr. Greg treats the person not the symptoms. Thank you

I've been lucky to have exceptional health care from the beginning. At the beginning, seventy-six-plus years ago, Hugh Rodgers brought me into the world in mother and dad's second-floor bedroom in our dairy farm home. Hugh's son, Hugh, Jr., practiced with his dad and beyond caring for my parents, he, also, cared for hundreds of others and me. Roughly forty years ago, a friend suggested I make an appointment with Richard Krapf for help with back-pain. Richard treated the pain that, often, was debilitating, and on Richard's death, his son, Greg became the second second generation to help me from one place to another. I'm grateful to Hugh, Hugh, Richard and, perhaps, most of all, to Greg.
