10 Powerful Ways to Detox your body

Eating, eating and only eating will not give you healthy body, sometimes it's very necessary to cleanse your body internally. Every day we are exposed to environmental pollutants, preservatives, heavy metals, pesticides and cancer-causing chemicals. We inhale, ingest or come into contact with these toxins and they get stored in the tissues and cells throughout our bodies. No doubt that the body has a natural system that cleans out poisons or toxins that build up in the body. But over depositions of toxins can damage your organ and affect your normal body functioning.

What is a toxin?

When I say word "Toxin", I am talking about a substance that is harmful to the body after either after a single exposure or repeated exposure over time. Toxins are everywhere in our food, water, and even in the air, we breathe.
Your body can't easily eliminate these toxins or break them down. They get stored in places like fat tissue and eventually make their way through your bloodstreams and invade your brain, lungs, heart, liver, stomach and sexual organ.
Whereas the liver is one such organ which possesses the capability of clearing out all the toxins at regular intervals.

5. Moisturize your body

Keeping moisturized your skin means getting enough water so that your body can function efficiently. Water is like the ultimate shipping system, transporting nutrients to your cells and whisking away toxins. Aim to drink three litres of fluid daily. This will help move the lymph and support kidney detoxification.

Your skin has the natural barrier to help retain moisture, that barrier contains omega-3 fatty acids. Try adding foodstuff like walnuts, salmon, and flax seeds to your diet to boost your omega-3 fatty acids intake and moisturize your skin.

  • Carrots: Carrots are rich in glutathione and that's why carrots are one of the most powerful detoxing vegetables. As a bonus, they are loaded with beta-carotene and vitamin A, and have cardiovascular benefits, and help improve immune function.
  • Onion & Garlic: Onion and garlic carry high sulfur and the compounds that help to remove heavy metals from the body and can also prevent damage caused by heavy metal exposure. These sulfur-rich foods also help your body produce more glutathione, a critical antioxidant which latches onto and carries toxins out of the body. 
  • Lemon: Lemon contains ascorbic acid, which helps to detoxify the body; it also aids digestion, keeps your skin glowing and provides vitamin C, which stimulates white blood cell production and boosts immune system function.

7. Treat your skin right

The gentle exfoliation boosts circulation and promotes new cell growth too. By eliminating toxins from your body and reducing inflammation, also detox drinks boost skin health and minimize the signs of aging.

Then soak for 20 minutes, Epsom salts contain magnesium, as well as other minerals and nutrients that are absorbed into your skin during the bath, and can help with detoxification processes.

Without proper sleep you can gain weight, you may have a compromised immune system, and of course, you lack natural energy. Try to get 7-8 hours of sleep on daily basis, this will surely give your body a chance to rejuvenate for next day activities. Good sleep is not only necessary for the body to function properly, but to keep the bad and harmful substances out as well.

Start by placing hands palm down on your lower belly. Breathe in through your nose, counting slowly to 3 or 4 counts. Feel your tummy rise with the breath.
