Social media is loaded with skinny teas and detox supplements all promising fast results to help detox your body or jump start your digestion. Many people don’t know that the human body detoxes itself – it’s doing so right this very moment actually!
So, how does it do this and what are some simple ways to help encourage the body’s natural detoxification process?
The body detoxes through our liver, kidneys, digestive system, lungs, blood, and just about every cell in our body. You can support your body’s natural detoxification channels through implementing the following:
– Eating whole foods
– Managing stress
– Moving / Exercising
– Regular bowel movements
– Proper hydration
– Deep breathing
– Dry brushing your skin
– Using natural products on your skin
Daily lifestyle habits performed over the long term are key to detoxing your body, rather than a 7-day cleanse!
So, how does your body detox?
1. Through your digestive system
2. Your skin
3. Through your immune system
4. Your kidneys
5. Your liver
6. Your lungs and respiratory system
7. Your lymphatic system
Instead of falling into these fad detox teas and cleanses that promise fast results, try going back to the basics when in need of a “re-start”. Begin with consuming all whole foods, drink a gallon of water per day, get regular massage therapy and practice stretching and breathing techniques!
