A lot of people start to think about detoxifying their bodies at the beginning of the New Year. Might it be a New Year´s resolution to start in a healthy and powerful year, out of motivation to start something new or simply because you want to change certain habits to achieve a strong mind and body.
Whenever you think the time is right to give your body a detox here is some information how to start, what to consider and what should be implemented along the way.
Clean, vital and nutrient-rich diet
The first step to prepare your body for detoxification is to adjust your diet to a natural and nutrient-rich one. While detoxifying your body needs a lot of strength and power to eliminate toxins. You want to make sure to create a clean base and to nourish your body with nutrient-rich food at the same time to support and strengthen him whilst running through that process.
This can be achieved through nutrition, which is mainly alkaline and easy to digest. Your gut already starts to clean itself in a gentle way and your digestion will start to improve. A good digestion is necessary to eliminate toxins through your stool and urine and to keep in the good stuff like minerals, amino acids, vitamins and trace elements providing you with energy and help to got through the process.
There are different Detox programs. You want to choose the one, which suits you the best. Already a 2-day-detox can help to increase energy, eliminate brain fog and to give your digestive system a break to activate the body´s healing power. Other detox options are juice cleansing, fasting, intermittent fasting, alkaline diet and gut cleanse programs.
Important is to find and choose a program which is effective and thus not harm you, which you won´t give up on and which is easy to integrate in your daily life. If you choose a program, which is short but intense you should take some time of work. Your body needs a lot of rest and gentle care while detoxifying.
A person who does not like juice for example, who might suffer under fructose intolerance and needs solid food to keep up the energy level should not consider a juice cleanse program or fasting. It would rather harm then help him and he might struggle to keep up with the program. He rather considers intermittent fasting or a nutrient-rich diet high on alkaline.
If you are not sure which program is right for you, get the help of a dietician or nutritionist. We design individual programs according to your current health situation, needs and the goals you like to achieve.
After preparing your body with an alkaline, natural, vital and nutrient-rich diet you can start with the detox program. This process can take between 2 days and several weeks. After the detox is completed you should keep up the good work and continue feeding your body only natural and nutrient-rich food. Now since your important organs (gut, liver, pancreas, gallbladder, kidney, skin) experienced a reset they are able to function better. They will eliminate future toxins with ease and they will make sure to place vitamins, minerals, amino acids and trace elements in the organs and liquids where they are needed. After these 3 steps you will benefit from the following.
- Immune boost
- Increase your energy levels
- Get rid of brain fog
- Lose that extra weight
- Improve digestion
- Reduce inflammation process
- Improve your sleep
- Clear up and rejuvenate your skin
- Activate your body’s healing power
To support the detoxification consider the following
- Helps to eliminate heavy metals
- Sweating eliminates hormone-disrupting BPA, which accumulates in your fat cells
- Don´t forget to drink a lot of water and get plenty of salt, preferable Himalayan pink salt to reintroduce electrolytes which you lose whilst sweating
Exercise to flush toxins
Exercise increases lipolysis (the breakdown of fat tissue)
Bind the toxins
It is very important to bind the toxins, which started to circulate in your body. You do not want to shift them in other parts of your body. Your body will flush them out through your stool and urine.
There are different ways to bind toxins. You can either use Bentonit & Psyllium husk or activated charcoal.
There are recommended supplements they help to support the detoxification process, protect you from heavy metal damage, support liver enzymes and help binding and eliminating toxins.
Sea salt bath or footbath
Sea salts are great for removing toxins from the body. It is alkaline and will help to lower acidity in the body.
Dissolve one pound of sea salt and one pound of baking soda to a regular sized tub of water (more if the tub is large) as hot as you can stand it. Stay in the bath until the water has cooled which will be about 45 minutes. If the bath is too hot, you can add some cold water if this is the only way you can manage to stay in for at least 30 minutes. Don’t ever add more hot water after entering the bath, however.
Do not rinse or shower but simply towel dry after the bath is complete. This bath will likely make you tired so do it in the evening before bed if possible.
If you do not have a tub you can easily dissolve the salt in a bucket or larger bowl. Place your feet in it and leave them there for about 30 minutes.
Dry skin brushing is a swift and powerful way to enhance the detoxification process. It is easy, pleasant and yields tremendous benefits.
Not only does it improve the appearance of your skin by eliminating dead cells and helping new skin to regenerate, it also stimulates blood circulation, the lymphatic system, and greatly enhances toxin elimination.
All you need is a natural bristle brush. Start with brushing your feet and soles, moving upwards the thighs in small circular motions.
For the upper body part, put one arm up and brush down towards your armpit and then move to the other arm. When brushing your torso brush towards the heart. Brushing over the top of the breast insist on the armpit, where there is a concentration of lymphatic nodes. Finish off with small circular brushing around the neck and shoulders.
Brush your abdomen from the right side to the left, in the natural directional flow of the intestines, and go around in circles to gently massage the colon. I insist on the hips and thighs as skin brushing is an excellent treatment for cellulite.
As a general guide, it is more beneficial to brush from the extremities towards the core of the body.
