As people live their lives, toxins inevitably accumulate in their bodies. To keep the body clean and healthy, it is important to occasionally resort to special detox techniques. Although there are plenty of fad diets and techniques that purportedly cleanse the body of all toxins, the best way to detox is to use completely natural methods that are gentle and safe for your body.
Choose a Healthy Diet
Diet is one of the primary culprits that encourage toxins to build up in your body. To deal with this problem, there are plenty of simple changes you can make to your diet, including the following:
- Eat more fiber. All the extra fiber found in foods like rice, beets, and broccoli will help rid toxins from your body.
- Consume fewer processed foods. Processed foods – just about anything that comes in a box accompanied by a powdery mix, for instance – contain all of the unnatural, chemically-enhanced ingredients that are responsible for many of the toxins that work their way into your system.
- Avoid alcohol, caffeine, and sugar. Although you don’t need to completely eliminate these things from your diet, consuming less of them will help the body rejuvenate as you wash away toxins.
Drinking lots of water is a necessary part of keeping the toxins and salt in your body in check. Water is essential to every metabolic process that occurs in your body. Drink enough water to keep your urine pale yellow – if urine is too dark, you need more water.
Sweat It Out
Sweating is one of the best ways to get rid of toxins, so techniques like exercising and using steam therapy are an important part of any detox. As you sweat, any excess salt in the body will be purged through your skin. After a steam therapy session or a workout, be sure to rinse off thoroughly to make sure that you truly rid yourself of all of those toxins.
Floatation therapy is also useful as a part of a detox regime because the Epsom salts in the tank draw out toxins. Even better, floatation therapy offers a wide array of other health benefits on top of detoxification. To enhance the detoxification encouraged by floating, be sure to shower immediately after exiting the tank to wash away the Epsom salts as well as the toxins.
