So many toxins and toxic substances travel the world we live in, making us vulnerable to its effects. There are chemical toxins in our food, in the air and even in our favorite devices: pesticides, mercury, and even uranium are among those that contribute to health deterioration. By detoxifying our body, we can prevent a number of health conditions that can begin with exposure to toxins.
In Craft Side, we have found 11 ways that will help you detoxify your body and be healthy again.
Drink red wine
It may seem strange that an alcoholic beverage is used to cleanse the body. However, there are many studies that show how a single glass of red wine a day can improve your cholesterol level and even fight urinary tract infections.
Use activated charcoal
Activated charcoal is essentially burnt wood, debris or even coconut shells. The burned substance has no oxygen and becomes very absorbent.
It can literally eliminate most toxins, heavy metals and poisons from your body. It is advisable to take a tablet before a meal or alcohol consumption.
Drink lots of water.
Water is a natural source for “eliminating” bad substances: the more you drink, the faster the toxins in your body leave it through the urinary tract.
There is an excellent water-based drink that can help cleanse your body: just add 2 tablespoons of organic apple cider vinegar to a gallon of water and shake it. Drink daily in the morning.
Avoid refined sugars.
Refined sugars and artificial sweeteners cause the body to block its natural metabolism and accumulate too much glucose in the blood. Thus creating a vicious cycle of weight gain, as well as the possibility of contracting diabetes and heart disease.
Swapping organic brown sugar, maple syrup and other healthy sweeteners will suffice. You will notice that your body needs to get rid of sugar when your craving for sweets begins to grow.
Organic vegetables, fruits, and meat do not contain toxins such as pesticides or antibiotics. Being organic will improve your metabolism and help your digestive system work better to eliminate unnecessary toxic elements from your body.
Processed foods will never provide as many nutrients as organic. Grow your own vegetables: plant an indoor garden or buy from local farmers.
Clear the air from toxins.
Toxins and toxic substances can enter your home through open windows. Therefore, purifying the air is a good idea to make sure you don’t breathe bad things: buy an air purifier and it will do the job.
It will also be useful to clean dust from furniture and clean the floor with a damp mop from time to time.
Instead of breakfast, drink green tea.
Try to fast from time to time.
We eat and eat, and then we eat more. And most of what we insist on is processed foods and refined sugars. Fasting for one or two days can help cleanse your body of harmful substances and prepare you for a healthier diet by curbing your appetite.
Go to the sauna or exercise.
Sweating is a natural way to cleanse the body of toxins. The more you sweat, the cleaner it will be. Go to a sauna and exercise. However, consult your doctor before going, as exposure to high temperatures is not recommended for some people with health problems.
Another way of sweating is, of course, exercising. Choose what suits you best and choose. Do not forget to take a shower later to clean the skin of all sweat!
Make probiotics or probiotic foods your favorites.
Your digestive system and how well it works is the key to good body cleansing. To facilitate better functioning of the stomach and intestines, take probiotics as supplements or eat probiotic foods.
One of the largest foods rich in probiotics is kefir or natural yogurt. Make sure you have it at least once a day and your digestive system will appreciate it.
Learn how to make detox smoothies.
Changing your eating habits can be very effective in detoxifying your body. Eating too much raw dietary fiber can help improve your digestion and, therefore, help clean your system naturally.
Make smoothies with fruits and vegetables or probiotic foods such as kefir or yogurt. You can play with the ingredients as long as they remain raw (and, of course, wash them before consuming them).
Detoxifying ions with water is another way to eliminate toxins from the body. Beauty salons have this option after a pedicure. You can also buy this gadget online and use it at home.
