There are a lot of cleanings out there. It seems that every week there is another that is endorsed by a celebrity or health guru. Are they suitable for everyone? Of course not. There aren’t many things that are right for everyone, but there may be a few that you want to try to see how it goes. With toxins all around us, in the air, and in our food, we get bogged down from time to time, and what better way to feel better than to detox?
Toxins build up over the years and our bodies are pretty good at getting rid of a lot of them, but we still have some that we can get rid of and that’s where body cleansing comes in. But instead of doing a crazy juice cleanse or eating just grapefruit for a week, how about approaching it a little differently, such as through a lifestyle change? It sure will take longer, but the results will be much better.
You can start detoxifying by choosing organic fruits and vegetables and avoiding anything that is processed or contains GMOs. Additionally, adding garlic, lemon, broccoli, beans, and raw vegetables to your diet can aid in the body’s natural detoxification process. The better the food you put in, the better the result will be.
Another way to detox is to exercise. When we exercise we sweat and that releases some of the toxins in our body. It’s also great for our hearts and minds, making it a win. Meditation is also a great thing to try while clearing your mind and reducing your stress level. Stress is toxic in and of itself, so avoiding it is a great thing, easier said than done!
We all know the benefits of water. The more you drink, the better you will feel. Water is a detoxifying agent because it helps the body eliminate toxins. Adding lemon or cucumber to it will give it a kick and a nice flavor and will also aid digestion and detoxification. Mix it up and drink that water.
If you want something a bit faster acting, there is always ionic detox which uses positively and negatively charged ions to draw toxins out of your body while soaking your feet in warm salt water. And of course, massage works wonders for both mind and body to get rid of those toxins!
