The importance of cleansing your body (and where to start)
Chemicals and toxins bombard our bodies daily. They are in the foods we eat, the products we use in our bodies, the cleaning products we use in our homes and offices and they are created through the constant stress we put ourselves under on a daily basis. All these toxins affect your health, so it’s time to take stock and eliminate them from your life!
Imagine a swimming pool if you will. In a swimming pool, you can see all the dirt and debris that collects in the filter; this garbage can make the water dirty and harmful to swim in. Your body also gathers waste and garbage. However, unlike a pool filter, you don’t get to see the impact of the impurities that are taxing your body until it’s too late.
The good news is that you can undo the harmful effects of toxins on your body by cleansing your system. Cleansing can have a wide range of benefits; you can feel healthier, boost your immune system and energy levels, improve your complexion and speed up weight loss. It can even offer a reprieve from some conditions. Ready to give your body the clean it needs? Here are four tips to start the cleansing process today.
1. Eat more whole foods
To start, look at eating more whole foods, that is more fruit and vegetables. Think of food as the fuel that drives your body. The food you eat will either fuel or fatigue you. Think you don’t have time to prepare meals from scratch, as Edward Stanley famously said, “Those who think they have no time for bodily exercise will sooner or later have to find time for illness.” Which would you rather make time for?
2. Increase your water intake
In the cooler months, it can be easy to forget to drink water regularly, but water is crucial in maintaining body functions and regulating your temperature. While you may not be losing water through sweat as much in the summer months, keep in mind your body also loses water through breathing and digestion. Water also helps to flush toxins through your system. When you cleanse and detox, toxins are pulled from your organs, cells and fatty tissue, and water ensures that it exits your body faster.
Exercise is a simple and effective way to eliminate stress toxins. Keep it simple, go for a walk, aim for 10,000 steps. If that’s not possible, move your body for twenty minutes. Go fast then slow and repeat. These activities not only release hormones that reverse the toxins of stress, but they also release the hormones that make you feel good.
4. Limit the environmental toxins you are exposed to
Think about all the chemicals we use on a daily basis. From our soaps, shampoo and conditioners, cleaning products it’s no wonder more people have allergies and illnesses. There are many useful natural alternatives and simple homemade ideas that can help you eliminate the number of environmental toxins you are exposed to.
5. Consider nutritional cleansing
Did you know there are specific supplements that eliminate toxins and cleanse all your systems? I prefer to work with herbs, vitamins, and ionic minerals for cleansing. Ionic minerals offer some of the best results as they provide an assortment of over seventy minerals.
