Everyday, people are talking about saving the environment, about enforcing stricter rules on companies releasing toxins and pollutants into the air, and how these things are affecting our world today. Yet rarely do we ever think about how these pollutants are affecting our own bodies.
Think about it, if we rally for tougher carbon-emissions, and stricter control over the chemical levels in our water we think that we’ve done our environment a world of good, and we have, yet daily our bodies are waging the same war to stay clean. This is why it is so important to do a detox-diet a couple times a year.
A detox-diet, and the supplements it comes with, can gently aid your body in its natural cleaning process. Not only will you feel better physically, especially if you’ve been suffering from headaches, bloating, lack of sleep, and other mysterious ailments not directly linked to any disease.
There are a few things you can do in order to make your detox-diet the most effective it can be. First of all, follow the directions exactly. Some will call for a strict regime of fresh fruits and veggies – foods that will help your body process impurities. Also, be sure to drink lots of water in order to help flush out toxins. Coffee, tea, sodas, and so on, don’t count. What you need is pure water.
After you’ve finished the detox-diet, help your body avoid getting into such a dire position, by changing your diet. Keep those fresh fruits and veggies coming daily. Choose lean beef, poultry, and fish, over other kinds of meat. Switch your breads and crackers over to whole grain brands, and choose brown rice over white.
Do your best to avoid fast-food and the frozen food aisles of the grocery store because these foods contain such high amounts of chemicals, sugars, and sodium. Help your body fight off environmental pollution and improve your health by trying out a detox-diet.
