Summer is a perfect period to naturally clear your body from toxins. An effective detox will boost up your body metabolism and improve your overall health.
- Consume less sugar
First thing you may start with is decreasing the amount of sugar you consume. That also includes molasses, honey and any artificial sweeteners. Eating more sugar you make your body to produce more insulin. That makes your pancreas work harder. Later your love to sweets can lead to diabetes, cancer, feeling chronically fatigues and gaining excessive weight.
- Make sure to consume much water
Doctors suggest drinking a tall glass of water with juice made from half of a lemon each morning. Lemon plays a great role as it promotes digestion and helps to rehydrate the system.
- Move your body regularly
Regular workouts/exercising encourage circulation in lymph and blood systems. Moving regularly will also reduce tension, improve digestion, lubricate joints and generally strengthen your body. That’s a fact that people who exercise regularly have far less toxins in their bodies than those who don’t move enough.
- Drink tea
Ashley Karr, a research psychologist and wellness coach says that tea is not only full of antioxidants. It also hydrates and fills you up (especially herbal tea). That means you will be less likely to overeat or eat junk food. And you should remember that caffeine in tea differs from caffeine in coffee. The first one is gentler for your system.
- Eat organic food
Researchers also suggest reconfiguring your diet making it more vegan. Consider consuming the great variety of veggies and fruits along with the beans, whole grains, legumes and a little amount of seeds and nuts. Whole plant foods should become a priority when you compare it with processed foods. The last lack nutrients your body requires. Otherwise, dark green vegetables for example are very low in calories and really full of micronutrients, so you can eat a lot of them.
- Exfoliate your body
Exfoliating your body and doing oil massages will help you to remove toxins from the skin and refresh the overall blood circulation.
- Fight with environmental pollutants
There are a lot of allergens and pollution in the air all around you. Being everywhere these can trigger allergy symptoms such as puffy, yucky, red eyes. Some doctors suggest flushing the nasal passages with a NetiPot. This will help to decrease or completely eliminate side effects of air pollutants and promote better natural breathing.
- Sweat it out in Sauna
Sweating in sauna can speed up your weight loss especially that one gained after pregnancy. Use sauna regularly, as there is no anything more detoxing than sweating it out.
