Going through a body detox or even changing to a detox diet lifestyle was much more rare in the past. Now, people are learning for themselves what they can do to heal their bodies after their doctor tells them there is no cure.
Having learned about the self-healing power of the body, getting out of the way and allowing it to cleanse becomes a priority.
Is there a recommended time frame to do a body detox diet?
You want to consider planning for at least 3 weeks. This will give your body time to complete the all-important first cleansing cycle. It will also help you to form a new habit that will help continue to help you in months to come.
A healthier you in just 5 key steps:
1 — No cleanse will work without good hydration. Dehydration is the result of not drinking enough water. Sounds simple, but most people don’t get enough water. You need to drink half your weight in fluid ounces, it’s best to use filtered water.
2 — Your body ph is on the alkaline side and your body detox diet is not complete without adding a lot of organic green vegetables. In contrast to the acid forming processed foods, you will find vegetables are almost always alkaline.
3 — Consume raw foods as much as you can. Studies have shown that the white cell count in the blood goes up whenever cooked food is eaten, demonstrating that the body perceives this as a threat. Work with your body during the body detox diet.
4 — One way to accelerate the cleanse is through juice fasting. Again, green vegetables are best and avoid sugary juices. Drinking only juices once a week is much easier on the body than a long fast.
5 — It is essential to move your body. You can do this by taking a walk or by doing resistance training. It’s not just a detox diet. Now, you will push out the toxins when you perspire and exercise.
Have you heard that toxins can be stored in the body for many years? It is time to get them out. So how does the body do this?
The incredible human body knows very well how to cleanse itself. The problems come when we don’t allow it to finish. By labeling skin rashes or runny noses as “illness”, we then proceed to do anything to have it stop.
Make it easy for yourself through the body detox diet. The more you help by moving and sweating, and drinking lots of water, the more comfortable you will feel throughout the process. And the quicker you will start to feel wonderful.
