Toxins are, unfortunately, all around us. Many natural-health experts believe that it is the buildup of these toxins in our bodies that lead to ill health and conditions such as acne. Therefore, by removing these toxins, we can create both a healthy body and skin.
Here are a few ideas to help you remove toxins from your body:
1. Drink water
Drinking plenty of fresh, natural water will help your body rid itself of built-up toxins. Try to avoid drinking sodas and sugary juices, which can make the problem worse, and instead stick to water as your beverage of choice.
In addition, remember coffee and tea can dehydrate the body and undo all the good work, so drink an additional glass of water for each caffeinated drink you consume.
Exercise is one of the best ways to remove toxins from the body. We all need to move, but vigorous exercise will not only help you feel good, but you will also build a healthy body and mind. In the process, you’ll clean toxins out of your system when you sweat.
3. Use the sauna
Many believe that saunas have a similar effect, as exercise does, in clearing toxins. It’s not for everyone, but it may be worth a shot. Don’t use the sauna for prolonged periods, and ensure that you always check with your medical practitioner first as not everyone should be using saunas.
4. Eat fiber
Eating plenty of whole, natural grains and vegetables ensures that your body gets enough fiber. The toxins in your system will bind to the fiber, and be swept out of your body on a regular basis. Eating plenty of fiber is one of the best ways to rid your body of toxins and create better overall health. This means healthier skin too.
5. Eat fruits and vegetables
Both are high in fiber, which is great for the body, but also contain a high antioxidant count. Antioxidants help neutralize free radicals, and help the body relieve itself of toxins. Eating a lot of fruit and vegetables will contribute to better health too.
6. Try a home colon cleanse
Many natural-health experts believe that a gentle, colon-cleansing program can help rid the body of excess toxins. There are several natural and organic products on the market, which consist of taking a combination of powder drinks and tablets. This is a good option for anyone who is not sure about trying a full colon cleanse and would prefer a gentler at-home alternative.
7. Avoid junk
Junk can be found in fast food, pre-packaged foods, and microwavable meals. These types of foods contain added preservatives and chemicals which are harmful to your body, and may make skin conditions worse. Avoid these junky foods and instead opt for whole, natural foods as much as possible.
Getting rid of toxins from the body is possible. The key is to get plenty of exercise, hydrate yourself often by making water your drink of choice, and to eat as many whole and natural foods as possible.
