Leading busy lifestyles and having unhealthy habits, we seem to forget about the benefits of healthy life. We don’t pay much attention to our eating regiment: we take a few bites of a sandwich for breakfast, or eat a burger, hot dog or any kind of fatty sandwich on the way to work. However, this is not the proper way to nourish our bodies and fill them with sufficient energy and nutrients.
If we don’t take care of our bodies, and don’t provide them with all the essential nutrients and vitamins, then our health will certainly deteriorate. By cleansing our bodies with following suggestions on how to naturally detoxify the body from all harmful toxins, which pass through our organs on a daily level, we will be able to strengthen our immunity, to hasten our metabolism and to pave the way to a healthier life.
First you should:
- Cut Your Sugar Intake
- Drink More Water
- Cut Your Alcohol Intake
- Drink a Lot of Tea
- Eat Organic Food
- Combat Environmental Pollutants
- Relieve Stress
Here are some more ways how you can cleanse your body out of toxins (natural body detoxification):
Use Epsom Salts in Your Bath
Hot water draws toxins out of the body to the skin’s surface, while the water cools, it pulls toxins from the skin. The Epsom salts make your body sweat, and thus through your sweat your body frees itself of its toxins. Also, when added to water, these natural salts can help to cleanse your colon.
Drink Lemon Water
This tip is very simple – you should only add lemon juice, or slices of lemon to the water you drink throughout the day. The acid in the lemons assist the cleansing process. Citrus fruits, such as lemons, contain a pure concentrated form of citric acid. Citric acid works like bleach on fat. Due to its acidity and high pH, the citric acid is able to penetrate and break down fat molecules.
Apple Detox Diet
This detox diet is based on eating only apples for three or four days, like Jonathans, red or yellow Delicious, Oregon Reds, Arkansas Black, or Sheep Nose. You may prefer organically-grown apples. You should try to eat at least 6 apples a day.
Consume more Liquids
Consume nothing but liquids (water, tea, fruit juice, vegetable juice, and/or protein shakes) for 2-3 days. Liquid diets can help jump-start weight loss by restricting caloric intake, and are believed to cleanse your body of certain toxins, though there is no solid research to back up this claim. So, be sure to include fruit and vegetable juices in your liquid fast to ensure that your body is getting the proper nourishment. If your goal is to lose weight, then you will have to change your eating habits once the liquid fast is over, or you will simply gain all the weight back.
Eat only fruits and vegetables for 7 days
Fruits and vegetables contain the vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients your body needs to stay healthy. Be sure to eat a diverse combination of produce to ensure that you are getting the proper nutrients. So, use this guide to determine what to eat during your fast:
Get fiber from kidney beans, then black beans, apples, soybeans, blueberries and artichokes. Get potassium from carrots, bananas, lima beans, white potatoes, cooked greens, and sweet potatoes. Vitamin C – get it from: kiwis, strawberries, kale, cauliflower, tomatoes, oranges, Brussels sprouts, mangoes and bell peppers.
Get folate from cooked spinach, melons, asparagus, oranges, and black eyed peas.
Get good fats from avocado, olives, and coconut.
Drink Enough Water
Getting enough water is essential for your health. Among the other health benefits, the water helps maintain your body’s fluid levels, which helps your kidneys flush out the body’s main toxin, blood urea nitrogen. Drink lemon water. Add lemon, orange, or lime juice to your water throughout the day. These fruits contain citric acid, which helps your body cut down fat. Plus, adding flavor to your water can make it a lot easier to get those 8 daily cups in! Brush your teeth in between meals to prevent acid erosion from the lemons.
