Healthy Ways to Detox and Realign Your Body
By Sandy Schroeder
Coming up with a plan that keeps your energy humming and you thriving doesn’t have to be complex.
Actually it could start with two simple approaches: First, enlist your chiropractor as your wellness coach. Second, learn how to detox your body naturally.
With the help of chiropractic wellness and a good flow of natural habits, you may feel like a different person.
Start with a visit to your local chiropractor, The Joint Chiropractic and find out what spinal realignment can do.
In your first visit, your chiropractor will want to talk about your daily schedule, work hours, family time and weekend activities. There will also be a review of your medical history and any pain symptoms.
Then a spinal assessment will be used to check for subluxations, which are misalignments of one or more vertebrae in the spine and/or the joints. When the misalignment is corrected it may have far reaching effects on back, neck and sciatica pain. Improved spinal health may also help with allergies, TMJ, arthritis, headaches and migraines.
Your spine houses your nervous system and serves as command central for your body. The better it works the better you work.
As you develop a chiropractic groove you may want to schedule weekly 15-minute maintenance sessions to stay at your peak and to allow your chiropractor the chance to spot any little glitches before they become big pain issues.
At the same time, you can try new workouts, learn more about stress reduction, and explore new diets.
Next Stop, Detox
Detoxification can easily become a natural routine with a little practice. Here are some tips from Memorial Health.com.
- Stay hydrated with clean water.
- Eat five to nine servings daily of fruits and vegetables.
- Get lots of fiber from nuts, seeds, vegetables and whole grains.
- Boost detoxification with cruciferous onions, garlic, berries, leeks, broccoli, asparagus and green tea.
- Eat protein to maintain glutathione, the body’s master detoxification enzyme.
- Try kefir, yogurt, kimchi and raw sauerkraut, the naturally fermented foods that help control toxins that live in the gut. Or take a high quality probiotic.
- Maintain bowel regularity.
As these habits become a regular part of your life, along with chiropractic assistance, you should be able to enjoy a new level of health and wellness.
