Detoxification (Detox) is a natural process carried out by your body to get rid of toxins. And if you’re not a big fan of juicing or other detox diets that claim to work magic, we have some good news for you. Your body already has detox organs, the kidneys and the liver!!
Here’s what you should do on a daily basis to help your detox organs work better at flushing out the waste.
- Drink plenty of water
It may not sound as exciting but it works wonders. Drinking water will help your body get rid of toxins. This not only helps with a natural detox but also helps fight cellulite, which is also a result of toxins stored in the body. Moreover, you will feel active all day long if you’re properly hydrated.
- Eat fiber rich foods
For a natural detox it is essential your digestive tract works properly. A fiber rich diet will not only help you avoid hunger pangs by making you feel fuller for longer, but will also promote regular bowel movement. This will greatly help your body get rid of waste. Also, it’s important you stay away from processed food and foods with additives and preservatives.
- WORK the toxins OUT of your body
Exercise boosts your body’s natural detoxification process. It improves blood circulation, which carries nutrient rich blood to the muscles and toxins to the necessary organs to be flushed out of the body.
- Get a massage
Yes spoiling yourself a little can also help get rid of toxins. Massaging the pressure points or spots where toxins generally build up can help release them. It also improves blood circulation, helping the body flush the toxins out.
- Get a good nights’ sleep, every night!
Your detox organs need proper rest to be able to function at their best. Moreover when you sleep your brain works almost like a dishwasher, flushing out waste built up in the brain while you’re awake. So next time you’re trying to get someone out of your head, you know what to do!
- Clean your tongue everyday!
You brush your teeth twice a day but do you clean your tongue? Your tongue could be full of bacteria and toxins that get ingested if you don’t clean it properly. Cleaning your tongue will not only get rid of harmful toxins but will also lead to healthier teeth and gums.
