Unfortunately, stress has become, over the last few decades, a protagonist on our lives` scene. The other roles are played by a more and more polluted atmosphere and processed food and beverages. How can we protect our organism against these factors that cannot be denied, so that it stays healthy and undamaged for a longer period?
Experts recommend us a detoxification diet at least once a year. Inspired from ancient traditions like ayurvedic and Chinese alternative medicine, detoxification is the cleansing process that helps our body eliminates toxins.
Basically, detoxifying means cleaning our blood of the impurities and toxins accumulated. In the detoxification process, these impurities are carried out to the liver, where they are prepared for elimination.
Detoxification also helps our bodies to prevent early signs of aging, to fight diseases and infection and to lose weight. Moreover, it improves our emotional state and our power of concentration, which implies that we will feel better with ourselves, we will be able to focus better on everyday life requirements, and we will be more effective at work and more cheerful at home.
Unexplained fatigue, all kind of allergies, mental confusion can be fought throughout a good detoxification diet, which implies – as a first step – eliminating from our daily menu substances like nicotine, alcohol, caffeine, refined sugars and saturated fats. Afterwards, we should think about replacing chemical household cleaners and personal hygiene products with natural alternatives.
Depending on what your body needs, there are many detoxification recipes and diets available, some of them involving consuming only liquids for a couple of days or drinking only fresh squeezed fruit and vegetable juices. You can also add supplements, herbs, a program of exercising and hydrotherapy to your detox program.
Even though you might sometimes find it difficult to stick with a detox program, the final results are truly worth it.
