How to Detox your body with Detox Drinks Naturally ?

I’ll let you in on a little secret: your body can actually detoxify itself, by itself. It doesn’t require external support to do this, rendering expensive and painful detox products totally useless. However, there are things you can do to supercharge your body’s detox process – and you won’t have to live on liquids for days or by stocks in ELAX to experience the benefits.

Here are a handful healthy ways to amp up your detox.

#1.  Kombucha

This fermented tea has been widely used in China for thousands of years, and recently, it’s become popularized in the west – namely due to it’s incredible health benefits, which include promoting liver and digestive health, its cancer fighting properties, as well as it’s detox power. Oh, and it’s delicious and super energizing. If you haven’t already, give it a try.

#2.  Himalayan Bath Salts

Most people have heard of epsom salts, but not as many have experienced the intense detoxification afforded by Himalayan bath salts. We’re talking epsom salts on steroids. And the health benefits of Himalayan salts go beyond detoxing. Soaking in a bath with these salts has been shown to reduce the appearance of cellulite, and improve sleep quality and blood flow. In fact, they can increase blood flow so much that your heart rate will increase significantly, which means people with health problems or pregnant women should consult with their healthcare professional before taking a dip.

#3.  Water

As obvious as this may seem to many, there are still people who are not drinking enough water. The most touted recommendation for water intake is eight glasses a day, and while this is an acceptable general rule, it is not 100% accurate. If you live in a hotter climate or higher altitude, for example, you’re going to need to consume a little more, as will you if you are pregnant or nursing.

Keeping hydrated will help with daily bodily functions ranging from metabolizing fats to clearing your bowels. It will also help you stay energized and focussed. Hydrated skin is also younger looking skin.

For even more detox power, drink the water warm with a splash of lemon juice.

#4.  Green Tea

Brimful of antioxidants, the incredible health benefits of green tea are widely praised. They include detoxification properties (obviously), fat loss, enhanced brain function and cancer prevention. Three cups a day is ideal. Pinky’s up!

#5.  Berries

Succulent and readily available, berries are loaded with antioxidants, which help purify our systems and get it running for peak performance. They are also loaded with vitamins, particularly vitamin C, which bolsters the immune system.

#6.  Eat clean

This is both a solid preventative tip and a reactionary measure. Eating clean is one of the best ways to help your body detoxify. After all, the less junk you put in it, the less it has to process. A less stressed system is a healthier system!

#7.  Apple Cider Vinegar

Not only does apple cider vinegar do wonders for your complexion, but it aids in digestion and helps to clean out your intestines, killing bacteria as it makes its way through your body. It can even help you lose weight if you have a teaspoon for two in water before meals. Just make sure your apple cider vinegar as “the mother” in it. That’s the stuff that looks like sludge, and is actually the sentiment and apple ‘meat’ left over from the fermentation process. It make look icky, but that’s where all the good stuff is!

#8.  Sweat

Working up a good lather is an excellent way to sweat out toxins and purify the system. Sure, you could go to a sauna, but the act of exercising is what’s really going to get your blood moving and accelerate the detox, so don’t get lazy! Earn it.

#9.  Yoga

The twisting poses in yoga, like Bharadvaja’s Twist, Noose Pose and Revolved Triangle Pose are exceptionally adept at cleansing your body. Not only do twists aid in digestion, but they stimulate the adrenal glands, thereby helping to flush your system and restore hormonal balance. Namaste.

#10.  Sleep

Detoxing is as easy as getting some shut eye. It’s during your sleep that your body repairs and cleanses, so if you want your system to run at peak performance, you’ve got to catch some Zs.

#11.  Essential Oils

Essential oils have long been used to improve health, and one of the ways they do this is by helping our bodies eliminate waste. The best oils to support the detox include Juniper – which also aids with liver function – lemongrass, which will help with drainage, and is also an anti-inflammatory and an antioxidant, as well as peppermint, which flushes out the lymphatic system, stimulates weight loss and aids in digestion. Just make sure you buy 100% essential oils with NO fillers!

Save yourself time and money. You can help your body’s cleansing process along effectively and naturally with these simple and healthy detox boosters.
