We’re all exposed to a variety of harmful chemicals and toxins on a daily basis. The best way to maintain optimal health is to minimize our exposure and support our bodies in releasing these toxins.
Implementing detoxification/cleansing practices into your life doesn’t have to be hard. Check out these simple ways to provide daily support to your body’s detoxification systems.
Top 10 Ways to Detoxify Daily
Detox Tip #1: End your shower w/ a blast of cold water. Moving your blood flow to your core promotes detoxification in your vital organs.
Detox Tip #2: Beets, burdock and brassicas (like cabbage and kale) are liver cleansing foods. Eat at least 1 a day everyday, more during a cleanse.
Detox Tip #3: Fill your home & work space w/ air cleaning houseplants like ivy, peace plants, & spider plants.
Detox Tip #4: Watermelon, parsley, & celery are all kidney cleansing foods. Try tabouleh salad, hummus w/ celery sticks, & watermelon for lunch!
Detox Tip #5: Be mindful of what you put on your skin. Many common care products contain toxic chemicals.
Detox Tip #6: Spice it up in the kitchen. Herbs like ginger, turmeric, & cayenne are anti-inflammatory and help the body cleanse naturally.
Detox Tip #7: Move your body. Sweat releases toxins through your skin & physical movement promotes detoxification in your blood and lymph.
Detox Tip #8: Supplement with fish oil. Omega 3’s soften your cell membranes, allowing important nutrients to enter & toxins to exit.
Detox Tip #9: Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate. Without water your cells cannot detoxify. Drink at least 1/2 of your body weight in oz per day.
Detox Tip #10: Don’t eat pesticides. Can’t swing 100% organic? Avoid the dirty dozen and eat more of the clean fifteen.http://bit.ly/aXBER
