The Skinny On Detoxing

Detoxing is an important function that your body naturally does but sometimes, a little extra help is necessary because of the manydifferent toxins our bodies are exposed to.
Various chemicals are emitted from an array of sources inside and outside our homes, succumbing our bodies to toxins that can potentially be detrimental to our health. Toxins can be emitted from unsuspected sources, such as foods and clothes, resulting in long-term accumulation, which can manifest into ailments ranging from headaches and stress to chronic illness.
The liver is a major component to the body’s ability to detox. As its role is to filter blood, the liver depends on a good diet and healthy lifestyle to properly function. The process of detoxification becomes harder when the toxins broken down by the liver are fat soluble. While most toxins are fat soluble, detoxification relies on good liver health supported by essential vitamins, amino acids, minerals, and antioxidants. With good liver health, toxins can be broken down easier and some health problems may be prevented. Plenty of water and regular exercise are also essential in helping to maintain healthy liver function.
Also, by eating a diet rich in fruits and vegetables and leading an active, healthy life that ultimately supports liver health, and using The Detox Tea Room’s 3-Step or 2-Step teatox, can help you do what’s best for your body. The Detox Tea Room’s 3-Step or 2-Step teatox effectively supports the liver’s ability to properly detox…

 

Here are 5 things to think about while detoxing
and to have a healthier lifestyle.

1. WATER

Drink more water. Your body is made up of 70% water and needs approximately six to eight glasses a day in order to stay hydrated and to help to flush out the toxins. Add a squeeze of lemon for an extra cleansing boost.

2.  GO ORGANIC

Eat organic food to minimise your intake of toxic pesticides. Organic food provides pure nutrients so your liver can cleanse. Organic fruits and vegetables also contains higher amounts of Vitamin A, Vitamin C and sulfur – which also help boost the cleansing effects of the body. They have powerful antioxidants that help drive toxins out of the body.

3.  EAT NATURAL

Avoid processed foods, alcohol, and caffeinated drinks while also eating less dairy, meat and sugary foods. Eat foods rich in fiber to help support your body’s natural digestive detoxification. Eat lots of vegetables and whole fruit – especially leafy greens, avocados, berries, apples, pears and plums. Also, cruciferous vegetables are amazing detoxifiers! Cauliflower, broccoli, cabbage, brussel sprouts and other vegetables from the same family provide a compound called sulforaphane, offering potent antioxidant activity that is anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer, helping to rid the body of harmful toxins and combat their negative effects.

4. EXERCISE

Exercise promotes detoxification via our perspiration. Exercise daily for improved circulation. As you exercise, blood circulates throughout the body bringing fresh oxygen and nutrients to your organs and muscles, while toxins are released through the pores in your skin. Exercise promotes detoxification and boosts your body’s systems.

 5.  CUT OUT SPECIFIC CAFFEINE/ALCOHOL

Cut down on caffeinated drinks and alcohol as these can all dehydrate the body.  Over time these can turn into toxins that the body can’t process and will inhibit your body’s ability to naturally cleanse. By cutting down on these things, it will lead to a healthier lifestyle. Change it up, with the Detox Tea Room’s 2 or 3-STEP 30 DAY TEATOX PROGRAM which provides important antioxidants that the body needs and aids in the elimination of toxins in the body – in a natural way.
