Adopting a body detox diet to heal yourself of life-threatening illnesses is much more common than you think. Although you don’t have to wait until your doctor says there is nothing more he can do for you, you will find solutions when you start searching.
The crux of the matter is that your body, with its trillions of cells, is self-healing. When you cleanse and stop overworking it with the standard diet, it quickly responds.
How long should a body detox diet be?
Ignore any cleansing information that suggests anything less than 3 weeks. You want to allow for a complete cleansing cycle, and begin to form positive new habits.
5 simple steps to a healthier you:
1 — Solve the dehydration issue. Most people are dehydrated most of the time. And yet, there is a simple solution. Drink half your weight in fluid ounces each day. Use filtered water for best results. We’re talking water here, not sodas or sugary drinks.
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 — You can deepen your cleanse with juice fasting, though it’s better if you’re in it for the long haul. It’s much easier on your body to do the juice fasting once a week than for extended periods. And no sugary juices; use cucumber, celery, and sprouts in the juice.
5 — Moving beyond a detox diet, well, you need to move. Resistance training with weights is one of the best ways to move your muscles, build strength and eliminate the toxins. But even getting out and walking is great. Get hot and sweaty and help your body eliminate the toxins.
When you are cleansing, your body will be eliminating toxins that have been stored, sometimes for years. Think of all the ways you eliminate.
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.
If you fight your body’s process, it will be more difficult. Move through the body detox diet quickly and effectively by following these simple steps and your body will do the rest.
