Detox & Cleanse Series: Water
Have you been waking up feeling fatigued, even with a full eight hours of sleep? Or how about feeling irritable for no particular reason? Maybe you’ve lost your radiant skin, lustrous hair and strong nails. These are a few signs that your body may need to detox.
There are many harmful substances that we are exposed to that we are, either directly or indirectly, affected by. These can be harmful to our health, and can possibly reduce our vitality and spark. Fortunately for you, through the course of detoxification and cleansing, you can get rid of accumulated harmful substances such as toxins that stress our systems.
Firstly, What Are Toxins?
Have you ever heard people talking about body cleanses or detox diets? They tend to talk about the dangers of “toxins” a lot, but never go into a lot of detail about what they actually are. So here’s our explanation; Toxins are potentially harmful substances that we come into contact with every day. These can be pesticides on your produce, impurities in the air, and those unpronounceable ingredients in processed food, or ammonia in your cleaning products, to name just a few.
Your body is filled with toxins that you encounter every day, especially in our modern world. So if you’re regularly punishing yourself with environmental toxins and not getting enough nutrients or hydration, your body’s natural detoxification system can be affected and not in a good way.
It can naturally get rid of all the unhealthy stuff inside, but if you eat a lot of junk food, you’re not going to be able to get the other harmful junk (toxins) out. In return you will put your liver and kidneys under a lot of pressure that would then prevent them for doing their job efficiently – and that’s where detoxing and cleansing come in.
Detoxing & Cleansing Explained
A detox is the process in which a person makes lifestyle changes to clear their body of toxins. These lifestyle changes typically involve staying away from certain harmful things and improving the body’s processes. While a cleanse diet doesn’t just eliminate junk from your diet – they also focus on fueling your body with nutrient-rich foods that support the body’s natural detoxification processes.
Cleanses and detoxes are trendy, popular, and promise to clear out horrible toxins from your body and make you healthier. One way of differentiating the two is that detox diets generally focus on “out with the old” in the short term and cleanse programs address the “in with the new” attribute. Good cleanses can help you form new eating habits that support your body and help you stay healthy (and non-toxic!) for the long haul.
There are many ways to start detoxing your body and they don’t have to be costly or time-consuming, in fact, it’s possible to start doing something about your health today with just water.
The Water Detox
Water is possibly the most valuable means for detoxifying your body. The body’s most basic functions require water. Your body needs water to produce saliva, help with perspiration, and remove waste. However, when doing so, it is important to remember to eat healthy as well. Detox waters can help you out in many ways. They can help you lose weight, give you more energy, improve your bowel movements and your immune system.
It also helps to cleanse your body, as long as you’re maintaining a healthy diet consisting of real and organic foods. In order to see and feel a huge difference in your health it’s best to eliminate alcohol and sugar from your diet and stock up on veggies, fibre and protein as well as healthy fats.
