Your liver, kidneys and digestive system remove potentially harmful substances naturally, but you can give your purification system some help.
Detox your body naturally with these easy tips:
- Eat plenty of fruits and veggies: Consuming antioxidants fights off carcinogens, and fiber-rich foods help move waste through the body.
- Break a sweat: Perspiration—a mix of salt and water—is a natural self-cleansing system, whether from exercising or sitting in a sauna.
- Lighten your toxics load: Eliminate cigarettes and limit alcohol, coffee, saturated fats and refined sugars, which can hinder your body’s ability to heal.
- Drink up: Water flushes toxins out of vital organs and carries nutrients to your cells. To make sure you get enough H20, aim for eight 8-ounce glasses a day.
