How to get rid of toxins in your body daily?
#1 Eliminate toxins from your life
First, stop toxic food consumption! Eliminate nicotine, alcohol, coffee, refined sugars, saturated fats, pesticides, but also stress and negative thoughts.
#2 Start your mornings with a glass of warm lemon water
Drinking a glass of warm water in the morning is the best thing you can do to kick-start your digestion and metabolism. Squeeze in half a lemon and drink it 15 minutes before breakfast. Lemons are packed with vitamin C, stimulate the liver, and help your body to flush out toxins. You can also drink it during the day as often as you want. Drinking water has tons of benefits and you can read about them in our other article “Benefits of drinking water”.
#3 Eat detox-food
Eating organic fresh fruits and vegetables like papayas, beets, radishes, spinach, cucumber, cabbage, broccoli, artichokes, spirulina, and chlorella are excellent to get rid of toxins from your body.
#4 Don’t snack all the time
This allows your body to fully and properly digest all its food so that it can devote more energy to cleansing as the digestive system rests. But if you can’t help from eating sweets and salty snacks, make sure you are eating healthy snacks which are good for you! Have a look at our healthy eating page with products like protein cookies or protein chips and enjoy snacking!
#5 Breathe deeply!
This is the easiest way for detoxification. Our bodies are designed to release 70 percent of its toxins through breathing and need the right amount of oxygen to function properly. Close your mouth and inhale deeply through your nose while counting to 4, hold your breath for 7 counts, then exhale through your mouth for a count of 8. Repeat it at least four times a day.
#6 Drink tea!
Green and herbal teas are full of antioxidants. They can hydrate you and fill you up. Choose dandelion root, burdock, and milk thistle, they help the liver to get rid of toxins. Plus, drink at least one gallon of water a day.
#7 Take it easy
Life is too short to stress yourself all the time and to worry about everything and everyone.
Learning how to deal with pain, stress, and change is the best way to minimize their negative effects on our lives. Generating positive emotions is the most important key to detoxify the mind and get rid of toxins in your body!
#8 Exercise & Sweat
Exercises increase the blood flow supporting better circulation to pump white blood cells through the body and help organs to cleanse themselves effectively. It can kick-start the natural detox process as it flushes out the lungs and cleanses the skin as we work up a sweat. Besides, you can also try going to a sauna from time to time so your body can eliminate waste through perspiration.
