On an every day basis, you can make changes in your diet and environment to help detox your body of contaminates, help your immune system ward off diseases and give you more energy. There are certain things that you can’t change ? the city in which you live may have polluted air quality or you may not live near an organic market place to purchase fruits and vegetables or have the opportunity to grow them yourself.
But, there are things you can do to improve your health and help your body to perform at its optimal level. Detoxifying your body in a healthy manner simply means that you eat healthier and remove as many potential toxins from your life as possible. It’s not a quick process, but a continuous one that you can work a bit on every day and that will eventually provide visible results.
Eating healthy and organically grown foods that are free from pesticides and harmful chemicals is a good way to begin to detox your body. But what about all the other contaminates in your home ? where you live and breathe most of the time? For example, how much plastic do you have in your home and use on a daily basis?
Did you know that the PVC (polyvinyl chloride) used to make plastics is actually contaminating your home and your body with toxic chemicals? You may eat on plastic plates or drink from plastic cups. Perhaps you use a plastic shower curtain, tablecloth or store your clothes in plastic covers. This is one contaminate that you can get rid of by purchasing items made with cotton or polyester materials that are much safer for your home and for you and your family.
We’re a nation of pill-takers ? and even over the counter medications such as pain relievers that contain acetaminophen can damage organs (such as the liver) that you use to filter contaminates from your body. Eliminating or removing as many pills as you can
from your life will help to detox your body the natural way.
Use plants to freshen the air in your home. Those great-smelling air fresheners aren’t so great when they enter your eyes and the rest of your body. They’re filled with pollutants that can make you sick. You might also want to purchase an air filtrating system for your home ? and open the windows to let in natural air when you can.
Cleaning your home with natural products such as baking soda and vinegar ensures that you won’t be breathing the harmful chemicals found in aerosol products. When you garden outdoors, don’t use pesticides on your plants to keep bugs or diseases away ? Instead, find a proven organic method that works on the plants you’re growing. There’s a lot of information available online that can help you make the right decisions.
When you detox your body, you’re turning back the hands of time. Living a modern lifestyle has left your body with residue that can not only harm, but also age you. A good detox plan can slow the aging process and even return your skin, hair and energy to a vital and glowing living thing.
