Detox Made Easy – 5 Easy Steps for the Newbie Cleanser That Work

The key to a healthy body is ensuring your inner terrain is clean and toxin free. Did you miss the boat this New Year when it came to detoxing your beautiful body?
Cleansing in the winter can be too hard for many. When spring is in the air and the idea of shedding some winter layers is an exciting proposition. If spring is a time for purging, and creating a fresh clean space around us then perhaps we should be thinking about purging on the inside too.
Don’t wait for your body to CRY out for help. Take the time to nurture your body now.
Cleansing can add years to your life, hmm, cleansing for longevity. I like that! Cleansing creates a more youthful glow – hmm, loving the idea I will look younger not older as time inevitably moves on.
Cleansing when done correctly reverses symptoms of dis-ease and dis-comfort, leaving you feeling bouncy like the Energizer bunny!
If you want clear skin, no more aches and pains, proper digestion, regular pooping, fresh breath, no body odor, depression lifted and of course weight loss then a detox is for you.
Just the word DETOX can have you running out the door but ask yourself this for a moment – how do YOU clean up internally?
While you may not be ready for a full on cleanse, these top 5 tips will start you on your journey.
1) WATER – If cleansing is about getting rid of the acid/toxins then you must flush them out. Drink good pure alkaline water. Aim for at least 4 liters of water a day. Peeing every 30 minutes indicates you are releasing toxins.
2) GREENS – Vegetables purify the blood, build a lean body and are a source of vitamins and minerals. Look for a good quality dehydrated, raw, green vegetable powder. Just one scoop has nearly 5lbs of vegetables. Imagine what effect that is going to have on your elimination process. (Find one that does not contain fruit, mushrooms or algae). Barley, Wheat Grass or other vegetable mixes are a super option. A big squeeze of fresh lemon or lime adds a refreshing zing and helps alkalize too.
3) RAW & STEAMED – The simple introduction of all raw and steamed foods for 2 weeks will start a detox. Eat salads with greens like spinach, dandelion, baby beet leaves, mache, frisee, and then add avocados, tomatoes, celery, fennel scallions, and anything else you fancy that is raw. Make vegetable smoothies and lightly steamed soups to create a wonderful rest for the digestive system. Start your day with a breakfast green smoothie like my Goddess of Green. If you think you are going to be hungry, go for some raw nuts and seeds or raw nut butters. Almonds and hemp seeds are best.
4) LAXATIVE – The colon and kidneys are just 2 of 5 exit points one excretes toxins. An all natural laxative is essential for keeping things flowing if you know what I mean. Magnesium and unrefined salt are two incredible ways to encourage the body to purge. Extensive studies have shown that unrefined sea salt like Celtic Salt filled with a high concentrate of important Trace Minerals will help to lower blood pressure, and provide energy to all cells.
Steer clear of table salt. It is poison to the body. Flushing the colon with 2 tsp of unrefined salt in just 4 – 6oz of pure water flushes within the hour and keeps the flushing for a good hour. Drinking at least 1 – 2 liters of alkaline water before flushing maintains hydration. This should never be tried without proper hydration.
5) SWEAT BABY! Every pore you own is an exit point for acids. Go for a power walk, jump on the bed with your children or go and dance with the vacuum cleaner – Move your body in a way you love and feel the difference.
Incorporating these key points, as an introduction to a detox will change the way your body process everything and probably have you wanting more.
