Following up from our article in January, I would like to dwell a little deeper on the topic of detox. Detoxification is the process where the body gets rid of unwanted toxins because of environmental pollution, or consumption of excessive junk, refined and processed food. A detox diet is a great way to take pressure off your organs and this means better digestion and lymphatic function. Here are 5 easy ways to detox at the comfort of your own home.
- Eat The Right Foods
Opt for fresh fruits and vegetables, and go organic if possible. Pesticide sprayed fruits and vegetable can be harmful for your body. Natural fats like extra virgin olive oil and coconut oil provide energy for detox and biotransformation process.
2. Drink Plenty Of Water
Make sure you consume 4-5 litres of water a day to remove unwanted toxins. Water helps in weight loss and helps keep your skin clear and boosts your energy levels.
3. Start Exercising
All you need to kick start your exercise regime is merely 20 minutes, 3 times day with no equipment at the comfort of your home. See this link for some exercise inspiration.
4. Try Intermittent Fasting
Eat your dinner earlier and give your body about 13-15 hrs of zero food consumption and you will be amazed how light your gut feels.
5. Support Your Gut
Consume foods rich in pre and probiotics such as miso, kefir, yogurt, kimchi, kombucha.
