So many toxins and toxic substances roam the world we live in, making us vulnerable to their effect. There are chemical toxins in our food, air, and even in our favorite gadgets: pesticides, mercury, and even uranium are among those that contribute to health deterioration. By detoxing our bodies, we can prevent a series of health conditions that can start with the exposure to the toxins.
We found 11 ways that will help you detox your body and be healthy again.
Avoid refined sugars.
Refined sugars and artificial sweeteners cause the body to block its natural metabolism and build up too much glucose in the blood. Thus creating a vicious cycle of weight gain, as well as a chance of getting diabetes and heart diseases. Swapping to organic brown sugar, maple syrup, and other healthy sweeteners will do the trick. You will notice that your body needs to get rid of sugar when your cravings for sweets begin to grow.
Organic vegetables, fruits, and meat do not contain toxins such as pesticides or antibiotics. Going organic will improve your metabolism and help your digestive system work better on removing the unnecessary toxic elements from your body. The processed food will never provide as many nutrients as the organic. Grow your own vegetables — plant an indoor garden or buy from local farmers.
Clear the air from toxins.
Toxins and toxic substances may enter your house through open windows. So, purifying the air is a good idea to make sure you don’t breathe the bad stuff _ get an air purifier and it will do the job. Simple dusting the furniture and cleaning the floor with a wet mop every now and then will also help.
Instead of morning coffee, have green tea.
Coffee, especially when unfiltered, contains cafestol, a diterpenoid molecule that can increase cholesterol levels. Avoid the build-up of the bad cholesterol and switch to drinking green tea or any herbal teas.
