6 Simple Detox Ideas

by Christina Koopmann - Freelance Writer

Practiced for centuries by cultures around the world — including Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine – detoxification is about cleansing and nourishing the body as well as the mind for a more vibrant, healthier lifestyle.

When you detox on a physical level, you basically remove impurities from your entire system via the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. While removing toxins from your system, you start to feed your body with healthy nutrients. Detoxifying can help protect you from disease, boost your immune system, enhance your beauty, clear your mind and in general renew your ability to maintain optimum health.

Here are 6 easy tips and tricks how you can help your body detoxify on a daily basis:

  1. Start your day with some hot lemon water to kick-start your system and your digestion.
  2. Dry-brush your skin every morning before showering to remove toxins through your pores – the skin is the biggest organ after all.
  3. Eat a lot of fiber, including brown rice and organically grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods.
  4. Drink at least two quarts of water a day and a lot of green tea.
  5. Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system. A short meditation or Yoga practice every day could help you to practice the deep breathing exercise.

Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.

      • Apples – 2 medium
      • Cucumber – 1 cucumber
      • Celery – 4 stalk, large
      • Ginger Root – 1 thumb
      • Kale – 6 leaf
      • Lemon – 1/2 fruit Directions

      Put all ingredients in a juicer, shake or stir and serve.

      Adding lemon juice to a beverage can help increase weight loss.
      One of the main benefits of using kale in your juice blends is that it provides a large nutritional punch with one of the fewest calorie counts per cup of any other vegetable.
