What is detoxification?

Detoxification (detox for short) is the physiological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from the body.

It is mainly carried out by the liver… but the skin also plays a key role in detoxification!

Health Benefits Of Detox:
– Boosts your energy
– Rids the body of any excess waste
– Improved skin
– Assists weight loss
– Better overall health
– Improved immune response
– Clearer Thinking
– Healthier Hair
– Lighter feeling
– Anti-aging benefits
– Improved sense of wellbeing

#1 – Make These Simple Dietary Swaps For Natural Detoxification

Instead of Coffee (Produces a “false” sense of energy)
Try Water (Assists the body to remove toxins)

Instead of Soft drinks / Alcohol (They disturb the balance of the body)
Try Fruit & Vegetable Juice (Great source of vitamins, minerals and micronutrients)

===

Instead of Sugar (Linked to numerous diseases)
Try Brown Rice Syrup (Lowest GI (glycemic index) and healthiest sweetener)

===

Instead of Refined Salt (Increases blood pressure and clogs arteries)
Try Sea Vegetables (Highest source of calcium and minerals)

===

Instead of Meat (Difficult to digest and has many saturated fats)
Whole Grains (Perfect dietary compliment to produce nutritional balanced food)

===

Instead of Dairy Products
(Excessive source of saturated fat)
Almond/Rice Milk
(Easier to digest)

#2 – Drink “Detox Water” – especially as soon as you wake up!

How To Make An Amazing Detox Water

Ingredients:
2 lemons
1/2 cucumber
10-12 mint leaves
3 quarts water

Method:
1. Wash all produce carefully. Slice cucumber and lemons. Place in the bottom of the pitcher with mint leaves. Add water.
2. Chill overnight or for at least 8 hours.

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Chill Time: Overnight or 8 hours
Yields: 10-12 glasses
Great first thing in the morning or during a spa session!

#3 – Try Skin Brushing

Skin brushing… supports the skin in performing its natural detox function.

It stimulates the lymph, exoliates the skin, opens pores and draws blood to the surface.

Skin brushes – such as the one shown – have natural bristles and are available for a few dollars.

Tips:

When kin brushing, brush “towards the heart” – up the arms and legs rather than down.

Use clockwise circular motions on the stomach (up the right and down the left – this is in the direction of digestion).

Avoid the face.

Pro Tip: Try skin brushing before a sauna.
– these two work very well in combination.

Don’t forget to stay hydrated!

#4 – Eat Cilantro (aka Coriander)

Did You Know?

Cilantro (aka. coriander, Coriandrum sativum) has been found by scientific research to increase elimination of highly toxic mercury from the body?

A groundbreaking study conducted at the Heart Disease Research Foundation, New York, USA in the mid to late 1990s discovered this remarkable effect of cilantro.

It’s often advised to do a gently kidney cleanse first to help heavy metals be eliminated, rather than just “mobilized”…

Seagreens, alpha lipoic acid and modified citrus pectin are often included in this protocol to assist with elimination.

Start gently and stay hydrated (lemon water is good!)

#7 – Sleep Well!

(stay with us – 2 more important tips to come after this…)

SLEEP WELL! Deep sleep is when your body goes into “full detox mode” and performs restorative processes…

So do everything you can to ensure your sleep is deep and restful…

… including turing off devices earlier – because blue light form device screen stimulates “daytime hormones” and keeps the brain awake!

#8 – Liposomal Glutathione

(- now we are getting serious! Ready?)

Liposomal Glutathione

Investigate this supplement!

Glutathione has been nicknamed “The Master Antioxidant”.
It plays a key role in detoxification processes in the liver.

Many people report a greatly increased sense of wellbeing
after taking glutathione.

However in its natural state it is not easily absorbed via digestion.

Glutathione IV (intravenous) is sometimes seen in health clinics.

However this is of course not ideally suited to home use!

Another simple option for supplementation is Liposomal Glutathione.

This is a form that is more readily absorbed.

Take with food – this will also assist with absorption!

Start slow: If you are highly toxic, you might get a “detox reaction” after taking a full capsule.

Begin with a small amount (1/4 or 1/2 capsule) and see how you get along.

You might notice a stronger / worse smell than normal from your urine or excretion the next day.

This would indicate that the glutathione is doing its job and getting the nasty stuff out!

Note that glutathione should not be taken on an ongoing / daily basis (unless medically advised). This is because continual supplementation may affect the body’s systems that make it, causing them to slow down.

Pls note – as with everything we publish – none of the above is medical advice or a recommendation for self-diagnosis or self-treatment.

#9 – and finally… Get lots of fresh air!

In our quest for energy efficiency,
modern homes are more “airtight” than ever before.

While this might be good for saving on energy bills,
there is a SERIOUS health consequence…

Our homes are full of manufactured products
that gradually but continually “off gas”
a cocktail of chemicals…

– some of which are super toxic!

For example formaldehyde, a known carcinogen, is emitted by plywood, memory foam and countless other consumer goods.

Add in artificial fragrances (many of which are toxic), paint fumes, PVC, chlorinated water, cleaning products…

And yes, you are breathing all of this continually!

Not good! In fact, the situation has gotten so serious that indoor air quality has been rated by the EPA as one of the top 5 health risks to the public!!!

So our final tip for detox is…

get some fresh air!

Open windows if possible…

Get some FOREST TIME if you can…

you could even take in a MOUNTAIN or two…

Let’s detoxify! <3

Live well, healthy and long… HH&H
