Last week I discussed the Top 11 Most Pervasive Chemicals to Avoid. Unfortunately, we can’t avoid everything. This is why it is important to detoxify on a regular basis. Drinking ample water is a natural way to detoxify (that is if you are drinking clean water). There are also foods that help detoxify your body, like cilantro, garlic, lemons and dark, leafy greens. While consuming detoxifying foods is definitely important, they will not remove destructive levels of toxins that have accumulated over time.
Just like your car needs regular maintenance for optimal performance, so does your body! Deep cleansing helps the body let go of harmful toxins and maintain the body’s natural state of balance. It is important to cleanse/detox regularly and with the help of a professional if you are not experienced with the process.
Some Benefits You Can Achieve by Cleansing:
Reduction in cravings
Improved digestion & assimilation of nutrients
Reduced elimination issues (diarrhea or constipation)
