One way of revitalizing yourself is to start a detox program. The whole idea is to remove the toxins from your body caused by substances such as alcohol, tobacco and food consumed during the festive period. A detox program helps your body by cleaning out the toxins that you have absorbed by passing them from your skin, liver and kidneys, which act as cleansing filters. The whole idea of a detox diet is to strengthen the organs your body uses to carry out detoxification on a normal day-to-day basis and release the toxins that have become stored up.
Which Is The Best Way To Detox? You may find that the detox program you decide to use could have a number of different elements to it i.e., diet, nutritional supplements and herbs, exercise and possibly a number of alternative treatments. You may even decide to purchase a detox course from any good pharmacy or health shop.
The best and probably the most cost effective way of being able to remove the toxins from your body is to start eating more fresh fruit and vegetables and also drinking plenty of water. Wherever possible the fruit and vegetables that you eat should have a good source of fiber. Also try and drink at least 2 liters of water each day. If you find that water is a little bland, then try adding lemon juice or even flaxseed, both of which act as fairly effective laxatives.
When preparing the fruit and vegetables that you are going to eat, make sure that you prepare them as simply as possible, try not to add too many spices or oil to them. A good way of preparing vegetables for such diets is to steam them, thus retaining many of the vital nutrients you require to assist your body during the detoxification period.
By following these simple rules, you will find that your body can more effectively absorb the nutrients that it requires and will assist with the effective removal of the toxins that have absorbed during the festive season. You may also find that your body has more vitality and stamina and there may well be an improvement in your digestive system as well. Finally, you may also find that you are more focused and able to deal more effectively with the stresses and strains of every day life.
