Serious physical conditions appear on a daily basis to those around us. Naturally, detoxing our bodies is now receiving some well-deserved attention.
The goal of a detox is to clean out and therefore improve our digestive system, raise our (natural) energy levels and recover holistic health. Your immune system, concentration, memory and likely even sleeping habits, will all benefit greatly from a detox program, if done correctly. Here are the most popular ways to go about it.
Most detox diets concentrate on raw fruit and vegetables, combined with extensive amounts of water and vitamins. You are much more likely to be successful if you apply these changes in moderation, rather than by abandoning your old eating habits cold turkey. In fact, sudden changes in person’s diet will lead to extreme cravings and may not bring the expected results. Highly processed food, with solid fats, can be gradually tapered off until the body feels comfortable consuming fresh produce only. This type of treatment will bring fantastic results! Just go slow.
Due to poor diet and unhealthy lifestyles, hardened matter tends to accumulate in the large intestine. This can inhibit natural excretion and also result in painful medical conditions such as diverticulitis. Thankfully, natural remedies are available to remove these toxic particles from your colon and greatly improve all body function. Natural colon cleansing requires a short period of fasting, followed by a strict vegetarian diet (usually including flax seeds) and salt water flush to the colon. The process is fairly quick and typically doesn’t create any side effects. Instead, the feeling of cleanliness and well-being is the most common consequence.
The most effective way to detox requires the attention of the professional staff at a detox center. The process starts with a full evaluation of the patient’s health history, including both a physical and mental status. Each aspect of the program is closely monitored and tailored to the specific needs of the participant. A daily calendar is created for each individual and it is followed consistently. Detox centers typically combine natural remedies with modern science, but they maintain a limited use of medication, to avoid any side effects. Post-treatment care is usually offered to ensure full safety.
Harmony in your body can be achieved by using herbal extracts to detoxify your system.
There are literally dozens of herbs you can look into, based on what you need. For instance, laxatives and diuretic herbs, such as Psyllium seeds or AlfaAlfa, will quickly improve bowel movements. Dandelion leaves help with liver function. Pumpkin seeds remove parasitic organisms from the colon. Urinary tract function can be improved by the use of Cranberries and Irish Moss. Antiseptic properties of Witch Hazel bark tea are proven to help infections. Blood purification can be achieved by the consumption of Fennel Seeds, Ginger Root, Echinacea and Papaya.
Once detox is complete, going back to old habits is not advised. This is because sticking to a well-balanced diet and exercise program will help you avoid the need for frequent detoxification in the future. It will also strengthen your immune system. No matter what your lifestyle was before, you should now strive to be on your way to a long and productive life without the burden of pollutants. Instead, benefit from a natural lifestyle!
