What is Detox?
Detox is a term we have heard frequently of late. But what is it?
The human body comes into contact with toxins through the air, food, and water. You must eliminate toxins from the body to lead a healthy life. When your body is cleansed and nourished inside out, it functions to its maximum potential. The cleansing also gives you glowing skin, shiny hair, and a perfect body! There are various natural ways to detoxify your body; be vigilant and feel the difference.
Choose what you eat wisely. First of all, avoid foods that create toxins in the body, such as alcohol, saturated fats, sugars, cigarettes, caffeine, and processed foods. Go for foods rich in fiber, vitamins, and minerals, and are all-natural. The cleanest and beneficial diet is a plant-based diet.
Eating foods that are not processed and do not contain GMOs or chemicals is the best way to ensure that toxins are not introduced into your body. You can go all out and become a Vegan or Vegetarian, or you can simply reduce the amount of meat and dairy that you consume and focus more on fruits, vegetables, nuts, beans, and legumes. The best option is to buy organic or grow your own so you know that there was nothing harmful added to the foods. Additionally, the plant-based diet helps keep your digestive system running properly so you expel the toxins that do manage to enter your system.
Exercise regularly. When you work out, you don’t just burn excessive calories but also help your body get rid of the toxin build-up through breathing and sweating. Exercising improves blood circulation and digestion that also aids in removing toxic substances from the body.
Well, yes, it is another reason to pamper yourself with a good, relaxing massage. When correct pressure points are appropriately massaged, they release toxins from muscles, which will later remove themselves from the body. Make sure you get a trained masseur or masseuse.
Start your day with a detoxifying liquid, which is green tea. You should not consume caffeine in large quantities, but a little will not do much harm. Green tea is full of natural antioxidants that help remove all the unwanted substances that move about in your bloodstream.
Water is one of the most important things that help flush out the toxins from the body without much effort. Drink a lot more than the usually prescribed eight glasses each day. Do not go to sports drinks or any unhealthy drinks but just plain water.
Nothing sweats you out as much as a good sauna does, and nothing detoxifies a body as much as sweating does. Use a sauna regularly and keep getting your body rid of toxins.
