What does it mean to detoxify your body? Let’s start with the meaning of the word detoxification.
Detoxification, or “detox” for short, is the body’s process of removing unwanted toxic substances acquired from environmental pollutants or excessive consumption of junk, refined and processed foods.
Detoxification is not a food, or diet, or a pill - it is an ongoing, VITAL process that your body does (on its own) in order to survive. It happens 24/7, 365 days of the year. Not just for a few days or weeks prescribed to “do a detox”.
Your main detoxification organs are the liver and kidneys. The bowels and urinary tract are extensions of these organs as wastes exit your body. The skin (via sweat) and the lungs (via breathing/expelling CO2) are also considered detoxification organs. All together, these organs are pathways that toxins take to move through and exit your body.
There is a multitude of research showing that being exposed to toxins can contribute to resistance of weight-loss, chronic illnesses like cancer and diabetes, and trigger or aggravate autoimmune conditions.
While the liver possesses the capability of clearing out toxins at regular intervals, there are tips you can follow naturally to ensure that you have a healthy gut and glowing skin almost every time.
1. Eat fresh and clean
Go organic and say yes to a healthy life.
The most important cause of toxin accumulation is consumption of highly fried, processed, refined & packaged foods. Excessive oil, salt and sugar act as toxins and can lead to various health issues in the future. It’s important to remember that pesticide sprayed fruits and veggies can be equally harmful to your body. Opt for organic fruits and vegetables rather than consuming fast foods and processed foods. Cabbage, broccoli, kale, cauliflower and brussel sprouts are types of vegetables which assist in detoxification.
2. Increase your Fiber
You can keep your digestion running smoothly by eating foods high in fiber such as beans, berries, avocados, squash, peas and flax or chia seeds.
3. Drink plenty of Water (EarthWater)
There is nothing better than water to detoxify your body. Water is not just essential for survival but is important for removal of unwanted toxins. Water not only removes the impurities efficiently but helps n weight loss, improved skin and can help boost energy levels.

4. Start exercising
We all need to exercise and starting out with as little as 15 minutes per day will help you say yes to a healthy body in the new year. We need exercise in order to detoxify. When you exercise there is sweating and sweating is a means by which the skin eliminates toxins. Exercising will not only help you in staying fit and healthy but will help you get rid of unwanted toxins. Some ways you can exercise at home is to do sit ups, squats, march in place or forward lunges. Start the new year and new you off right and as Nike says “Just DO it!”
Resting is a way to assist the body in resetting itself. Taking a time out can help reduce stress, boost your immune system and help reduce inflammation. Getting away from work or the stressors of life from time to time can help boost your immune system.
