Natural Ways to Detox Every Day
By Alexis Mills
If you want to reach your optimal health, it takes consistent effort in everyday life to get there and to maintain it. From the toxins surrounding us daily in the foods we eat, products we use, and the air we breathe, we need to be detoxing them out of our body. In order to help our bodies' natural system to get rid of the unnecessary, follow these tips to get rid of toxins every day.
We all know that drinking water is important to fuel our bodies, but it also helps with flushing toxins from the body. The simple action of staying hydrated will help your body function at its best.
Sweat It Out
When we sweat, it is a process of getting out toxins from the body through our sweat glands. You can get your sweat on from exercising or, for an extra boost, go into a steam room or sauna.
Make a Detox Smoothie
Feeding your body with the vitamins it needs through a nutrient-packed smoothie is exactly what your body needs to replenish and help remove toxins. A good way to do this is by making one for a yummy breakfast and to give yourself the energy you need until lunch.
Start Dry Brushing
For people who don't know, dry brushing is a special brush that you use on your whole body to remove dead skin cells. It's important when doing it to start at your feet and work your way up. Also, make sure the motion of brushing is going in the direction of your heart to encourage proper circulation. By dry brushing, you are removing dead skin cells and unblocking pores so that the skin can effectively remove toxins.
Take an Epsom Salt Bath
Taking an Epsom salt bath is one of the most relaxing ways you can help your body's detoxification process. Epsom salt is full of magnesium so adding it to your bath will help draw out the toxins from the body. You can also add your favorite essential oil for an extra boost of relaxation.
Focusing on your breath is such a simple but effective way to support your body both physically and emotionally. But in the case of getting rid of toxins, taking big, intentional breaths, we are feeding the body more oxygen and ridding it of more carbon dioxide. This method of detoxing strengthens your respiratory muscles and reduces your risk of anxiety while making strenuous activity easier.
When you first thought of detoxing, you may have thought it would be a lot more complicated and difficult to help your body. Incorporating all of these natural ways to become your healthiest self will make a difference in the simplest ways.
