10 Steps to Successful Detoxification


Every day we breathe in pollutants from household chemicals, and ingest pesticides, preservatives, and other chemicals through consumption of food and water. Harmful chemicals like parabens are transferred into our bodies through our skin from many body care products, such as lotions and deodorants. In addition, our body produces waste from its own metabolic processes. When these toxins and wastes accumulate, we can have problems such as fatigue, digestive problems, hormonal disruptions, weight gain, etc. All this can lead to development of different disease including cancer, diabetes, and cardiovascular problems. For all the above reasons it is of vital importance to help your body get rid of these toxins through detox. Here are the 10 major steps you need to make to detox:

  1. To start,you need to first lighten up your toxin load. Eliminate alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars, and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Also, minimize use of chemical-based household cleaners and personal health care products (cleansers, shampoos, deodorants, and toothpastes), and substitute natural alternatives;
  2. Start your day with a glass of juice of 1 freshly squeezed lemon or 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar mixed with a glass of water. This will improve your digestive system and help your body clear out toxins;
  3. Eat organic foods as much as you can. Also, avoid unhealthy foods such as white sugar, white flour, processed and prepackaged foods. Substitute with healthy choices such as honey, spelt or buckwheat flour. Switch from white to whole grain bread.
  4. Eat more fruits, vegetables and herbs. These contain natural enzymes which aid digestion and improve nutrient absorption;
  5. Eliminate toxic oils from your diet. Toxic oils include peanut oil, vegetable oil, sunflower oil, cotton seed oil and canola oil. Substitute with good oils, such as extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, hemp oil and flaxseed oil.
  6. Stay hydrated. It is not a secret that our body needs around 8 glasses of water on a daily basis. However, it is not just the water but rather clean filtered water you need to be consuming. Use a carbon or reverse osmosis filter to get rid of hidden contaminants in water.
  7. Drink herbal and green tea. Good herbal teas include dandelion root, burdock, and milk thistle. All of these will help your body clear out toxins when taken in moderation.
  8. Exercise regularly. Lymphatic system moves into action with muscular movement and deep breathing and helps eliminate the toxins from your body. It is important not to overdo it, so start with something like gentle yoga. It will help you support you both physically and spiritually.
  9. Sweat. Sweating is important as it is one of the ways for our bodies to get rid of harmful toxins. One of the best ways to sweat is to use a sauna. People have been using saunas for centuries for many different conditions. The benefits of sauna include but are not limited to improved blood circulation, relaxation, improved sleep, relief from joint pain, and of course detoxification. By removing toxins from your body through perspiration. When visiting a sauna always remember to follow facility rules. If you are not feeling well in a sauna leave immediately and seek help form personnel. Make sure you measure your blood pressure to ensure your heart is working properly.

  10. Another obstacle to good health is stress. It triggers your body to release stress hormones into your system. In large amounts these hormones can create toxins and slow down detoxification enzymes in the liver. Look into yoga and meditation as those are simple but yet effective ways to relieve stress.

Please remember that everything is good in moderations. We highly recommend measuring your blood pressure several times a day in order to monitor the impact of your lifestyle changes on your body.
