Simple Ways To Detoxify Your Body


Detoxifying your body is the process of removing toxins inside your body. This process includes a number of elements such as taking vitamins and supplements, herbal therapies and a change in diet. Our body has its own detoxifying organs and systems which include the liver, gallbladder, colon, kidneys, lungs, lymph, blood and skin. They are responsible for eradicating body toxins. Unfortunately, due to today’s overly polluted world and the increasing popularity of various unhealthy foods, we are forcing our bodies to work harder to get rid of the increasing number of wastes and toxins. Thus, the body needs all the help it can get to carry out its job effectively. Here are a few health tips that will surely make you feel cleansed inside and out.

1. Take a glass of lemon water. Before you brush your teeth in the morning gulp a glass of water (warm) with a little slice of fresh lemon. If you don’t have fresh lemon, then a dried lemon slice will do. Lemon water intake stimulates the liver and facilitates the removal of waste products from the body, and results to a good digestive system and blood flow. If you are taking vitamin or herbal supplements, take them with lemon water. This will help your body absorb the supplements better and faster.

2. Detoxify with Chia. Back in the ancient era, the Aztecs, Incas and Mayan tribes ate chia seeds to provide them with endurance and strength. This is why Chia is also called the “ancient super food”. Now, the health benefits of chia seeds include increasing fiber, omega-3 and 6 oils, potassium, calcium and magnesium supplies of the body. They also serve as the body’s intestinal broom by effectively expelling waste through the gastrointestinal tract. This makes the “ancient super food” a great food for detoxification.

3. Decrease your sugar intake – Too much sugar causes your body to create more insulin which can stress your pancreas and wear you out. In the long run, this kind of unhealthy habit results to chronic fatigue, diabetes, cancer and a some extra pounds.

4. Regular exercise – Proper exercise gives you superb blood circulation. It will also improve your digestion, enhance lubrication points, lessen tension and increase body strength. Those people who are physically fit have lower amounts of body toxins than those who don’t.

5. Get in the habit of drinking tea – Tea is a very popular antioxidant. It also helps in hydrating your body and filling it up. This means that when you drink tea, you are less likely to eat too much or eat the wrong foods.

6. Eat more greens – Your diet should mainly consist of a variety of fruits and vegetables along with whole grains, legumes, beans and a doze of nuts and seeds.
