Detox Made Simple!!!


The word detox might inspire images of someone starving on just lemon water and cayenne, or maybe you think of that friend that did a juice cleanse and had a migraine for three days. detox doesn’t have to be that extreme! It can simply mean that you focus your efforts on changing some of your routines to help create a more balanced mind and body.

Due to environmental exposure, our bodies can become overwhelmed by toxins that enter into your body via water, air, food, pharmaceuticals, or other drugs.

Cleansing the body does not have to be as extreme or restrictive as some diets you’ve maybe heard of, or even tried yourself. In fact, simple changes, such as considering changes to the following are great ways to start the detoxification process:

Water

Start each day with a glass of spring or filtered water and the juice of one lemon to help flush toxins and alkalize the body. Be sure to also continue drinking water throughout the day.

Vegetable Juice

Drink a freshly made vegetable juice daily that includes hearty greens such as kale and spinach helps to cleanse the cells of toxins.

Oils

Eliminate toxic oils from your diet such as vegetable, peanut, and canola. Instead, use oils high in omega-3s, -6s, and -9s, such as extra-virgin olive oil, coconut oil, hemp oil, or avocado oil.

Tea

Teas such as dandelion, milk thistle, and nettles are great for detoxification.

Raw Fruits and Vegetables

Fruit and vegetables contain enzymes that improve nutrient absorption and aid digestion.

Sugar

Avoid white sugars and any other artificial sweeteners, as they can toxify the body. Instead, opt for natural sweeteners such as stevia, honey, coconut sugar, date sugar, molasses, or maple syrup.

White Flour

Consuming white flour overworks the digestive system and can cause digestive disorders. Substitute with other flours such as spelt flour, kamut flour, quinoa flour, or brown rice flour
