10 Simple Steps to Improve Detoxification
By following this 10 step plan you can get started on your path to a healthier more vital you. Proper detoxification is so essential for health that you need to start enhancing your body’s ability to detoxify today. Here is how to do it:
1. Drink Clean – Drink plenty of filtered, clean water. The recommendation is at least eight to ten glasses of water a day. However, if you are toxic you will need to drink more than this.
2. Eat Clean – You should also eat organic produce and animal products to eliminate the toxins, hormones, and antibiotics in your food.
3. Keep Your Bowels Moving – Your bowels need to move, once or twice a day. If you are constipated try extra magnesium citrate supplements, acidophilus probiotics and ground flax seeds. I also find liquid chlorophyll after each meal very beneficial.
4. Eat To Detox – Eat servings of colourful fruits and vegetables, especially cruciferous vegetables (broccoli, kale, cabbage, Brussels sprouts,) and garlic and onions, which contain sulphur to help detoxification.
5. No White Food – This includes white flour and white sugar.
6. Minimise Drugs – Avoid stimulants, sedatives, and drugs, caffeine and nicotine, and reduce alcohol intake.
7. Be Active – Exercise gently five days a week, walking, swimming and light weights.
8. Get Sweaty – Sweat profusely three times a week, use a sauna, steam, or a detox bath with Epsom salts added.
9. Supplement – Take a high-quality multivitamin and mineral supplement.
10. Relax – relax deeply every day to get your nervous system in a state of calm, rest, and relaxation.
This simple 10 step detox helps to reduce problems caused by toxicity, maximise your body’s own detoxification abilities, and help you safely eliminate toxin stores.
