10 Natural Ways to Detox Your Body

naturaldetox

 

Cleansing and detoxing the body is excellent for boosting cell renewal and giving your body a fresh clean start. Even for those who eat clean and have general good health it’s important to detox every few months. Toxins can build up in the body from a many number of things foods, people, places, things, etc. Here are 10 of the most natural, effective, and easy ways you can get detoxed and feeling refreshed.

 

1. Replace each meal with a smoothie. Ya’ll know how I love my smoothies especially green smoothies. To me they are the easiest way to get the most leafy nutritious greens in your diet without eating large bowls of veggies all day. Plus they taste great and you can customize to meet your palette. You can find plenty of smoothie recipes here on this website or my e-guide Drink Yourself Beautiful which goes into more detail on the amazing benefits and simple formula.

 

2. Eat organic as much as possible. I know there are still debates out there about whether buying organic is actually beneficial or not. However there is no disputing that generic or regular processed produce is covered in pesticides and other harmful chemicals. If you haven’t already check out the Dirty Dozen for a list of foods that are safest to buy organic. By reading labels and buying organic whenever possible you make smart choices when it comes to your health. Plus this will also help you rid toxins from your body.

 

3. Drink more water. This is one we hear all the time but cannot be said enough. Our body is mostly water so it only makes sense to drink this as much as possible. Not only does water hydrate the body internally but it also aids in organs like your liver to flush out the bad stuff from your system naturally. Dramatically increase your water intake and you will start to notice a difference. Start by drinking a full glass of water first thing in the morning. You can add a squeeze of lemon to help detox. If you aren’t crazy about plain water try some of my infused water recipes.

 

4. Sweat it out! By incorporating more exercise in your weekly routine your body builds up a sweat which is another way it releases toxins and dirt. You don’t have to be a gym rat to be fit either. Take a yoga or dance class, go for a run outside with friends. Anything that you enjoy doing that gets your body moving. Exercise helps the body release toxins, increases metabolism, and helps with the cleansing process.

 

5. Eat more natural fiber. Fiber is a beneficial nutrient because it aids in the colon releasing waste. Our digestive track can hold on to substances which can lead to a build up.When you regularly eat fiber rich foods this helps your digestive track to work properly. For those who are trying to loose weight try upping your fiber intake. Fiber can be found naturally in things like apples, skin from sweet potatoes, berries, oatmeal, and brown rice.

6. Get more rest. A good nights sleep and do a world of good. Lack of sleep can catch up with you after a while. It can attack your immune system first making you more susceptible to getting sick. When you sleep at minimum 6-7 hours sleep this gives your body the chance to recuperate. Without proper rest your body can more easily gain weight, weakened immune system, and of course lack of natural energy needed to get through the day.

 

7. Toxins from the environment is something people tend to look over. If you live in a noisy crowded city chances are you have a lot of toxins running through your system. Breathing in all sorts of pollutants and germs can reek havoc on your immune system and internal organs. Everything from smog to poor air quality can affect your body in a negative way. Try using a humidifier at night. Open windows in your home to get more fresh air circulating.

 

8. Probiotics are a supplements that I have been taking for years. These are great because they supply your body with the good essential bacteria needed to support functions like  digestion, immune system, and even help eliminate bad bacteria from the body. You can find these in supplement form or in yogurt (dairy and dairy free).

 

9. Prayer and meditation. Toxins can build up in our minds as well. Hanging around negative people, watching television or movies with a lot of negative messages can change the way you feel about yourself and the world around you. Try detoxing from media and spending more time with God in prayer and meditation. This will help clear your mind and prepare to face circumstances in your life. I love to have my quiet time with The Lord as it replenishes my mind. I can always tell when I am in need of more of his presence.

 

10. Lastly for overall health slowly cut out things in your life that don’t serve your greater good. With food cut out processed artificial junk, white sugar, fried foods, etc. If you have negative people in your life you may want to think about removing them. Focus on building healthy relationships.

How to Cope with Stress During the Holidays

stressed-out-woman

 

 

Christmas is almost 1 week away with the new year coming in two weeks! Some of you may be feeling the pressure already. Although the holidays are supposed to be the most joyous time of the year often times it can be the most depressing time. I don’t just talk about healthy in our physical body but a healthy mind is also key. Here are some simple steps to help you deal with stress during the holidays.

 

First step is to admit there is a problem. Notice the physical signs of stress such as lack of energy, irritability, poor memory, feeling down, etc. These are all signs that you are coping with too much stress. The faster you realize and take notice of these signs the sooner you can correct it. If you are feeling some sort of way about the holidays be honest with yourself and admit how you are feeling. Take a journal and write your thoughts down. Talk to a trusted friend or family member. Nothing is wrong with going to see a therapist or counselor. It doesn’t make you weak or crazy. You’ll be amazed at what a few sessions can do.

 

Be realistic about what the holidays mean. As a Christian I look at the holidays as what they are; a celebration of Christ coming into the world. Some of us get so caught up in buying gifts, going to parties, and other holiday traditions. Those are great things to do which can bring a lot of joy but try not to pin your happiness on the success of the holidays. My point is your happiness should be bigger than the holidays. Don’t let two days out of the year be what determines your happiness and value. Be thankful for everything you have during this season including opportunities you’ve been given, home, family, friends, and look forward to the future. Put things into perspective.

 

Eat well! I talked about this last week on how certain foods can increase energy levels. It’s important not to deplete all of your energy prepping for the holidays. Be sure to eat three healthy meals per day with plenty of protein, healthy fat, and carbohydrates. I know this is easier said than done because most people who are busy and stressed tend to forget to eat properly. Not only does this do a disservice to your body but this also aids in your stress levels increasing. Do yourself and body a favor and don’t skip any meals.

 

Watch your alcohol intake. I know this one will probably not go over too well, but I had to say it anyway. The holiday season brings about more alcohol between the spiked egg nog to the champagne at New Years! It’s ok to have a glass every now and again to relax and have a good time. Don’t go over board with it! It gets out of hand when alcohol is relied upon as a stress reliever. One or two drinks a few times per week may be okay but when it increases to more than this it’s a problem. Any more than a few drinks can induce stress, add on extra pounds, and cloud your judgement leading to poor decisions.

 

Lastly focus on your achievements and all of the great things about the holidays. So what if everything isn’t perfect like some Christmas movie. Let us not forget what Christmas is really all about. Ask yourself these questions: What did you enjoy most this year? How are you going to give back to the less fortunate this year?
