Tiredness, lack of energy, stressed out and general apathy are all symptomatic of modern day habits. How long can you go on feeling this way? It may be that your body is trying to tell you something. Why not try a body detoxification program?. ‘Body detoxification’ or body cleansing is a way to rejuvenate yourself, recharge the body and renew your spirit. It can be as simple or as complicated as you want to make it.
You may be wondering what a body cleansing detox actually is.Simply put it cleanses the digestive tract and aids the extraction and elimination of poisons from the body. The most natural detox you can engage in is simply drink lots more water, preferrably purified. Pure water is a natural cleansing drink.Many prefer to follow programs and recipes but in the end it all boils down to one thing – eat healthy, natural, unprocessed foods and drink more water, either pure or in the form of juices. Juices have the added benefit of containing nutirents, vitamins and antioxidants.
Why more liquids and raw fruit and vegetables?
The body rids itself of toxins naturally through the workings of the liver, pancreas, kidneys and the digestive tract. The bodys way of expelling the filtered foods and drinks is via the digestive system in the form of urine and faeces. The more “clean” liquids you drink they act as a vessel to carry the toxins from the body. Sweating also expels toxins from the body – ever wonder why it smells? Think about it, it contains bacteria and toxins – so better out than in.
So how much should you drink and when?
Regularity is the key – at least 6 – 8 glasses of water a day, or a combination of water and juices or herbal teas. Teas contain good amounts of antioxidants ehich helps the body rid itself of free radicals that are said to be a cause of cancer.
Exercise to get fitter, stronger and to sweat. Exercise also releases chemicals in the brain which give you a natural high. It makes your muscles and internal organs more efficient to take on the streeses of daily life.
It is also beneficial for body detoxification to avoid eating foods that are high in fat and sugar. Try to avoid consuming processed foods with lots of manufactured additives and preservatives. Go back to the basics by eating as much nutrient-dense, fiber rich food as possible. Eat food as close to its natural form as possible. It will do wonders for the body.
For a holistic or whole body, mind approach your detox plan should not only include a juice cleanse, healthy eating and exercise but also relaxation. You could learn to meditate to relax your mind. Get away from it all and forget everything for a while just taking time to relax and unwind. Body massages are a proven way to help the detox process. A skilled massage relaxes the muscles, the mind and opens up channels or “lymphs” inside the body which assist the elimination of waste. Sweat it out in a sauna and consider a turkish bath.
Body detoxification is easier than you think and if you commit to incorporating as many of the above suggestions into your life as possible you’ll renew and revitalize both your body and mind.
