How to detox in these 12 easy ways
Toxins have the ability to weaken your immunity. It can cause immunosuppression, which refers to reducing your immune system’s ability to fight off infections and other diseases.
Since toxins can create such extensive damage, making us susceptible to diseases, it’s crucial to know how to detox.
How to Detox
You must focus on opening up your detoxification and elimination channels in the body. Your primary drainage pathways are from the skin, lungs, kidneys, and colon. This means that you need to improve your perspiration, respiration, urination, and defecation systems to ensure the proper removal of toxins from the body.
Anti-inflammatory diet plan
You can distribute these healthy foods across your meal plans, including greens, vegetables, low glycemic index fruits, herbs, spices, healthy fats, and clean animal protein. If you want to avoid being exposed to harmful pesticides, hormones, and chemicals, choose organic food over the regularly available in the market.
Intermittent and extended fasting
Intermittent fasting involves the process of maintaining a cyclic period between fasting and eating. Beginners can start with a simple 12-hour fast that includes overnight sleep. You can go up to 16 hours of fasting with an 8-hour eating period.
For those who can handle these kinds of fasting processes, we recommend using extended fasting periods that can last for a few days to about two weeks. During these periods, you are allowed to have water and non-caloric drinks like herbal tea. However, you must refrain from eating food.
Fasting can reduce inflammation, support cellular repair and cleaning out of damaged cells (autophagy), and support the immune system.
Start your day with 32 ounces of water, drink throughout the day with one hour gaps. By the end of the day, you should have at least finished 10 glasses of water and not less.
Remove alcohol, colas and sodas from your refrigerator, and keep herbal tea, green juices, vegetables and fruit juices, and greens smoothies and shakes.
You must exercise at least 3-5 times a week for a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes. Take a stroll in the park, go for a walk, cycling, do gardening, or dance to your favorite song. Adopting a form of activity will support your detoxification process.
Improve bowel motility
The water you drink, the more fiber you add to your meals, the consistent eating of pre- and probiotics, and the more you exercise, the better your bowel movement. Improve your bowel motility to enhance your detoxification process.
Expose yourself to the sun
Spend a minimum of 15 to 30 minutes exposed to the morning sun daily. Avoid the midday sun due to the damaging UV rays. You can also practice walking barefoot on the grass, dirt and sand as a means of a grounding technique to receive the benefits of the electromagnetic energies of the Earth.
Dry brushing and Epsom salt baths
Dry brushing of your skin and having baths with Epsom salt has several benefits. Dry brushing supports the lymphatic system and helps remove old and dry skin and toxins. Having bath with Epsom salts causes the body to pull out the salts and toxins from the body and allows health-supporting minerals, that is, magnesium and sulfate to enter.
Infrared sauna usage
This therapy is a form of sauna that uses infrared heaters and releases infrared lights to get absorbed through the surface of your skin. It utilizes Far InfraRed Technology (FIR) to penetrate your body as much as three inches. This form of therapy supports detoxification, immunity, and lowers inflammation.
Use a good air filtration system to install in your home to reduce toxic exposure and detoxify you.
Swish a tablespoon of coconut or extra-virgin olive oil in your mouth for a few minutes. Brush your teeth thoroughly and rinse. The oil pulling method is great for dental and oral hygiene. It is also great for skin and hair health, reducing pain, and fighting parasites and other toxins.
Castor oil packs
Castor oil packs help improve the flow of fluids in your lymphatic system. It promotes the circulation of blood around an organ, around an area of your body, and supports detoxification.
Add some castor oil on your belly and massage it clockwise while lying straight on your back. Put a flannel cloth on your belly and place a hot water bottle on top. Cover this area with a towel. Relax in this position for 45 minutes to an hour.
