Toxin are harmful agents which are dangerous to the body and it is important for us to detox – the cleansing of our body systems to get rid of these harmful agents by making more healthy choices.
Here are six ways you can detox without using artificial substances, thereby really getting rid of harmful substances from our body.
Go with green tea
For ye coffee lovers to activate the detox mode, your coffee may have to take the back seat for the green light. Green tea is full of antioxidants which hydrates the body and reduces your chances of overeating or eating the wrong things because it fills you up. The caffeine content in green tea is different and milder on the body system compared to that of the coffee.
Sweat it out
Aside helping to lose weight, exercise helps to reduce friction, lubricate joints, and it is also an effective way of cleansing the body of toxins. Sweating during any exercise routine helps to pull toxins out of the body. It is therefore advisable to hit the gym regularly and sweat out any toxins left in your body.
If you also love to hangout in the sauna, you can use it as another effective way of kicking those bad guys out of your system. To make it more fun, why don’t you invite some of your friends over.
Double your water intake
Like we always say to our readers, there is no such thing as too much water. If you want a faster detox process, then drink more water. Switch over from soft drinks to at least eight glasses of water daily.
Drinking water constantly is a self detoxifying regimen which helps to cleanse and boosts your body metabolism. To make this process more effective, add a slice of lemon to a glass of water and drink it every morning. Lemons help to hydrate the body which in turn promotes the out flow of waste.
Try organic fasting
We are all familiar with fasting because of our various religious backgrounds. However, organic fasting is quite different, as it involves going off your regular diet for some few days and replacing it with fruits, salads, smoothies and other natural foods.
You can’t imagine the type of massive effect this organic routine will have on your body, it will give your organs a break from sugar loading and help it to rejuvenate faster.
Massage and exfoliate your skin
Your guess is as good as mine, how does massaging detoxify the body? I thought it was just for relaxing after a long day at work. But you won’t believe it, massaging is also as effective exercising because it focuses on the pressure points on the body coupled with essential oil involved, it cleanses the body naturally.
Dry skin brushing and exfoliating also helps to refresh circulation and remove toxins from the skin. It improves the appearance of your skin and helps to regenerate a new skin.
Take a deep breathe
