We are in constant contact with harmful organisms and pollutants. They’re in our water, in our food, and in the air we breathe. It’s very difficult to get away from them. The source of many health issues is the toxins that have built up in our bodies over the years.
There is no practical way to protect yourself from all the toxins in the environment. Your body is detoxifying itself all the time, around the clock, 24/7. Even your brain flushes out toxins while you sleep. You can help your body perform these processes with the help of regular cleansing. It’s essential to take care of these organs and allow them to do their job. Now, you should start doing more of these things that you didn’t know were good for body detox!
- Exercise and meditation
Exercise and meditation help maintain a healthy body. Exercising helps you sweat, and sweating helps release toxins through your skin. Based on studies conducted, there have been trace amounts of arsenic, cadmium, lead, and mercury found in sweat. Meditation helps you clear your mind and reduce stress. Stress can be as toxic to your health as chemicals. A troubled mind can cause the physical body to function poorly.
Detoxifying your body is not only about what you avoid, but also about what you consume. Following a healthy diet can go a long way. There are also many foods that aid detoxification such as garlic, lemon, broccoli sprouts, mung beans, and raw vegetables. Many diets promote cleansing and detoxification. It is recommended that you follow an organic, variable, intermittent fasting diet but there are other options if that isn’t for you. You could also try a raw alkaline diet. It’s a temporary cleanse consisting of uncooked fruits and vegetables and raw nuts, seeds, and sprouts. This is a great strategy for detoxing the colon and liver. A juice diet is also helpful and is centred around consuming freshly-made fruit and vegetable juice.
- Purify the Air You Breathe
Breathing clean air is another way to reduce your exposure to toxins. While you can’t control the whole environment, you can control the air in your home. Smoke, fumes, pet dander, mold, mildew and microorganisms can make the air in your home more toxic than the air outside. A high-quality air purification device is the best way to keep your air fresh and toxin-free. If a quality air purification device is out of your budget, get a few plants and place them in the house instead. Plants are nature’s air fresheners, which help to filter the air and remove toxins.
- Purify Your Body With Water
Water is possibly the most valuable tool for detoxifying your body. The body’s most basic functions require water. Your body needs water to produce saliva, help with perspiration, and remove waste. Even if you think that you are drinking enough water in a day, take your intake to a whole new level. Proper water intake can contribute to clearer skin, properly functioning organs, and a more effective circulatory, respiratory, and digestive system. If you’re one of those people that find the taste of water boring, try adding lemon or cucumber to your water.
- Get a good and intense massage
We tend to think of massage as a relaxing luxury, which of course it can be in some instances. Though massage can certainly be a nice luxury or way of treating yourself, it also happens to be a good way of detoxifying the body as well. When you push on these pressure points or spots where toxins tend to build up, you give them a chance to release. This helps you to naturally detox the body and get rid of the things that may have been making you sick. However, be sure that this comes from a registered massage therapist and that they know what they are doing in terms of ridding the body of toxins. To make it work effectively, you’ll need to drink a lot of water after that to flush out the system and be sure that the toxins leave the body immediately.
