Detox, you might have heard about this word many times. Have you ever wondered what this detox thing is? Generically, it is the removal of toxins from our bodies. Now the question arises what are toxins? Toxins are harmful substances that accumulate in our bodies due to our unhealthy eating. These toxins can cause a lot of ailments in our bodies. Detox cleanses our internal organs and helps us live healthy life. You don’t need any pills or supplements to get the toxins out of your body, you can do it naturally at your own home. Here in this blog, we will discuss how you can naturally detox your body. Read till the end to know more:
Eat fiber-rich food
Fibers help to flush out toxins from your body. Soluble fibers will absorb water in your belly and make you feel full while insoluble fibers will help move the waste from your digestive system, improving the bowel movements so that your body can get rid of the stuff it doesn’t need. To increase your fiber intake, you can add cabbage, radish, apples, strawberries, banana, broccoli, carrots, beetroots, chickpeas, oats and quinoa,etc.
Keep processed foods at bay
If you really want to remove toxins from your body, stay away from fast and processed foods and drinks. Sugar in these drinks does more harm than good. They have a lot of calories with zero benefits. So, it is better to avoid them.
Good bacteria in our gut has a huge role to play when it comes to removing toxins from the body. So eat fermented foods like dhokla, idli, etc to get a balance of good bacteria in your gut. Include probiotics like curd and yogurt to maintain the gut health.
Drink warm water
Water is the panacea for almost all our ailments. Drink warm water with a few drops of lemon juice. It will help you to cleanse your colon and get rid of the toxins.
Lessen Caffeine intake
Another way to cleanse your body is to lessen or minimise the intake of caffeinated drinks like tea and coffee. Instead, you can drink green tea, cinnamon tea, or ginger tea. These will aid you in detoxification.
Don’t underestimate the power of 8 hours of sleep. Just like your body, your mind also needs to cleanse itself from the hustle-bustle of your full-day thoughts. So taking a sound sleep will not help you detoxify your body but as well as your brain.
