No fancy build sweat lodge needed, No fancy smoothies. No special foods! No money up front. Just you and your kitchen.
Many of us would like to start the new year off with a wonderful outlook to get out bodies and minds back under control after indulging the last couple of months of the year past. Several feasts in a row can really make us feel bloated and depressed. There are trace amounts of toxins in everything and after long periods of time they can and will build up in our bodies.
A detox is what is needed.
From experience I will give you 7 of the best ways to detox and you can do it all in the privacy of your home.
1 – Sweat – That is right each and every time we sweat our bodies push waste out of the pores of our bodies. Do a workout several times a week and get that sweat on!
What are we sweating out? Trace amounts of lead, mercury and arsenic!
2 – Eat your greens! One way the body naturally detoxes itself is by having the right amount of vitamins, those found in leafy green vegetables are the best.
3 – Get your juice. Orange, lime or lemon. All contain immune boosters that helps your body make glutathione that gets rid of toxins and helps the digestive enzymes.
Try a hot water with lemon each morning.
4 – Oxygen. Plain old everyday oxygen! Breathing can help get rid of toxins too! Do the deep inhale through your nose and exhale out of the mouth. This helps the lymphatic system kick in, wards off toxins and pathogens in the body.
5 – Eat more garlic! That`s right, it helps the body as much as warding of vampires. Garlic seems to be one of those super foods that you cant get enough of. Garlic supports liver enzymes and contains agents to fight off Bacteria, parasites and viruses.
Use it raw! Mash a couple cloves and mix with real butter, spread on bread, or how about making up some homemade salad dressing?
6 – Green Tea, green tea and more green tea. Why? Green tea is rich in catechins, compounds that eliminate free radicals.
According to a 2007 study from the university of Arizona cancer center, people who ingested high levels of green tea catechins experienced as much as 80 percent increase in the enzymes that defend against cancer and other toxins!
Drink more green tea!
7 – Drink Water! Well we knew that one was coming but why drink so much water? For the kidneys – that is why. The kidneys do A LOT of work pushing toxins out of our bodies. When the kidneys do not work we will get sick and fast, that is why some people have to have dialysis to remove the toxins from the body because the kidneys failed .
It has always been recommended that we all drink 3 liters a day, that is 8 to 10 glasses.
See that is not hard to do at home and no fancy new gadgets required.
Drink lemon water, drink green tea and water.
Eat garlic and leafy green vegetables.
Work out to a good sweat a few times a week and relax with deep breathing.
And another benefit to keeping the body detoxed is that you should drop a few pounds without much effort!
