Detoxing is something most people often go to extremes for: colon cleansing, liquid juicing diets, starvation, and many other ways of ridding the toxins that have built up in our bodies due to various factors. The foods we consume and the air we breathe to name a couple examples.
Here’s the deal: detoxing can be performed on a daily basis without having to be extreme about it. The best part, you can even make it a routine/habit!
5 Holistic Ways of Detoxifying Your Body on a Daily Basis
|Detoxifying = Feeling Good!|
Tea is great. It comes in many different types and flavors and if you don’t add excessive amounts of sugar to, can be one of the healthiest drinks to consume. Look for teas that have ingredients known for detoxification: green tea, burdock, ginger, dandelion, and cayenne pepper. Drink tea and your body will flush toxins out.
Our bodies are fully capable of sweating toxins out. Sweat is our body’s way of releasing water-soluble toxins. If you’re exercising, then there’s a good chance you’ll be sweating a little. And if you aren’t, well … it’s time to push yourself a tad harder!
Alternative way to sweat out toxins: dancing, using a sauna, steam-filled showers.
3. Brushing your tongue
I would hope that all of us brush and floss our teeth, but I’m willing to bet a very, very small minority of us brushes our tongue as well. Believe it or not, our tongue is host to a ton of bacteria and other toxins. Simply take your toothbrush and gently brush your tongue using downward strokes for a good clean.
4. Apple cider vinegar
Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar offers a host of benefits. A lot of people are beginning to use it more often in their recipes – some even drink small amounts straight. It works very well for detoxing your liver.
Sources of antioxidants are a great way to rid the body of free radicals, which are produced naturally in our body and have been shown to cause damage to cells – including cancer.
Good news! Many fruits and vegetables are rich in antioxidant properties. Eat more fruits and vegetables and trust us on this one… you WILL feel better.
There’s plenty of other holistic ways of detoxing our bodies, but if you can turn these 5 (or even one, really – but aim for all 5!) into a daily routine or habit, then you’ll be well off. :)
