The word detox might inspire images of someone
starving on just lemon water and cayenne, or maybe you think of that friend that did a juice cleanse and had a migraine for three days...
Detox doesn’t have to be that extreme!
Sometimes those can actually end up doing more harm than good.
It can simply mean that you focus your efforts on changing some of your routines to help create a more balanced mind and body.
Due to environmental exposure, our bodies can become overwhelmed by toxins that enter into your body via water, air, food, pharmaceuticals, or other drugs.
Cleansing the body does not have to be as extreme or restrictive as some diets you’ve maybe heard of, or even tried yourself.
In fact, simple changes, such as considering changes to the following are great ways to start the detoxification process:
Start each day with a glass of spring or filtered water and the juice of one lemon to help flush toxins and alkalize the body. Be sure to also continue drinking water throughout the day.
Drink a freshly made vegetable juice daily that includes hearty greens such as kale and spinach helps to cleanse the cells of toxins.
Eliminate toxic oils from your diet such as vegetable, peanut, and canola. Instead, use oils high in omega-3s, -6s, and -9s, such as extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, or avocado oil.
Teas such as dandelion, milk thistle, and nettles are great for detoxification.
Raw Fruits and Vegetables
Fruit and vegetables contain enzymes that improve nutrient absorption and aid digestion.
Avoid white sugars and any other artificial sweeteners, as they can add toxins to the body. Instead, opt for natural sweeteners such as stevia, monk fruit, or honey.
Consuming white flour overworks the digestive system and can cause digestive disorders, brain inflammation, mood disorders, and so much more. Substitute with other flours such as almond flour or coconut flour.
