Clearing the toxins out of your body on a regular basis is a great way to revitalize your entire body and its immune system, and to improve your overall health. Getting rid of toxins that affect how we feel is the first step in this process. However, before you go on a juicing fast and refrain from eating any solid foods, take the time to review the following tips and suggestions on the proper way to detox your body:
Exercise on a regular basis
Spending at least thirty minutes each day doing some form of exercise lubricates the joints, reduces stress, improves digestion, and strengthens the immune system, while reducing toxins within the body. Just remember to wear the proper exercise apparel and use appropriate accessories, like weights and Pranamat ECO
Cut down on sugars
Sugars, whether natural or artificial, can make you feel sluggish, fatigued, and tired after their initial “high” effect wears off. Not to mention, sugar makes our pancreas work harder releasing insulin to regulate its levels within the body. Reducing sugar forces the body to use fat stores and removes toxins from inside the body.
Increase the amount of water you drink
Ideally, you should drink between eight and ten glasses of water each day. Start the day off with a glass of water with freshly squeezed lemon juice from a half of a lemon. Lemon aids the digestive system and will help remove toxins from the body.
Reduce the amount of caffeine consumed
Rather than drinking coffee, drink more tea. Tea still contains some caffeine, but it also provides the added benefits of antioxidants to help flush toxins from the body. Plus, the caffeine in tea is gentler on your body than the caffeine contained in coffee and sugary soft drinks.
Eat more organic and natural foods
Organic and natural foods do not contain added preservatives and other chemicals that create toxins within the body.
Remember to address external toxins
Flush your sinuses seasonally with a neti pot, and remember to exfoliate your skin on a weekly basis to remove oils, allergens, and pollutants.
Visit a sauna at least once a month
A dry heat sauna helps promote sweating and removes toxins through the sweat glands. Plus, it helps open up pores within the skin cells, and reduces problems with blackheads, pimples, and acne.
It is worth noting that there is no right or wrong way to detox your body. What works for one person may not be as effective or easy for you to do.
Ideally, by making changes to your daily habits, you can reduce the amount of toxins in your body, while greatly improving your overall health and well-being. Before starting any type of exercise, dietary changes, or detox programs, it is highly recommended to consult with your healthcare provider, and get their input on what will work best for your own physical condition and situation.
