• Spring Cleaning Your Body

  • Winter is almost gone and spring is almost here. What does that mean? It’s time for a little spring cleaning! This time the cleaning wont be done around the house, but in our bodies.

    We are going to talk about three ways to cleanse your body of toxins and restore healthy balances.

    Restoring Your Body’s Health

    Detoxing your body results in over all health and a cleansed body. Detoxification can also restore your body back to natural balances and help you to lose weight more efficiently and in a healthy manner.

    1. Water – We’ve heard this a thousand times but it’s always true. Drinking water throughout the day is essential for flushing toxins that would otherwise be stored in your kidneys. Depriving your body of water can lead to a laundry list of health problems such as: kidney stones, poor health, poor circulation and dehydration. Water helps your body to properly carry out functions like digestion, absorption and circulation as well keeping you well hydrated.

    2. Herbal Cleanse – Many herbs have been used for centuries to restore balance and health to the body. Here are a few that work wonders for the body and would be good to add to your diet.

    • Cleavers: Infused cleaver is most often used to cleanse the blood and strengthen the liver. In doing so your whole system will be revitalized and circulation will be improved. The cleansing properties can also be used to treat skin conditions such as psoriasis.
    • Milk Thistle: The active ingredient, Silymarin, in milk thistle works to prevent liver damage and help this organ to generate new cells. Many physicians prescribe milk thistle as a treatment for those suffering from liver damage. Milk thistle is most effectively taken in 200 mg capsules.
    • Green Tea: The American Association for Cancer Research found that the catechins in green tea lead to more production of detoxification enzymes that protext the body from toxins and cancer causing chemicals. Drinking a cup per day is great for your health.
    • Turmeric: This is another herb that is well known for its liver benefits. Turmeric increases the flow of bile which helps in the removal of toxins from the body.

    3. Saunas – This is one detoxification method you will love. Saunas are incredibly beneficial to the body. The intense heat will cause you to sweat and clear out around one-third of the toxic material your kidneys remove from the bloodstream. Saunas are effective in removing a number of things from the body such as: solvents, organic chemicals, PCBs, pharmaceuticals and heavy metal toxins. Next time you go to the gym, don’t forget to take advantage of the sauna!
