Although modern medicine tends to cast a cynical eye at detoxification practices such as fasting and colon washing, nobody can deny that the human body is exposed to a lot of toxins, and that bioaccumulation is real. Relief from such toxins can only bring benefits.

Unsurprisingly, the most common organs targeted by detox protocols are the ones directly responsible for dealing with the toxins that enter the body: the liver, the kidneys, and the intestines or colon.

Here are some science-supported ways you can clean up your body and feel better, stronger, and healthier through the consumption of detoxifying foods:


The liver is The Great Detoxifier. It is the part of the body that takes all those noxious chemicals and fats that we ingest, and then turns them into something that can be excreted by the body. [1] But that doesn’t mean the liver can’t use a little detoxifying itself.

Alcohol, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) and diabetes are just some of the liver’s top enemies. These can all cause injury and inflammation to the liver, preventing this organ from doing its job properly.

One lesser-known natural food item that can detoxify the liver from the effects of alcohol, NSAIDs, and diabetes is bitter gourd. This fruit reduces liver oxidation and inflammation caused by alcohol consumption, [2] stimulates the scavenging of liver free radicals caused by diabetes, and increases glutathione levels, which alleviate liver inflammation caused by NSAIDs. [3][4]

Other natural food items that have been scientifically proven to detoxify or rejuvenate the liver include lemons, [5] avocados, [6] apples, [7] dandelion leaves, [8] and garlic. [9]


The kidneys are blood filters. It is their job to collect and eject toxins from our blood. But the kidneys themselves can be vulnerable to toxins such as drugs, microorganism infections, and even excessive calcium or blood sugar. [10]

For detoxifying the kidneys, few natural food items are as well known as cranberry juice. Research has proven that cranberries do help clear the kidneys of viral infections [11] and calcium deposits. [12]

You probably didn’t know that onions have been reported by scientific research to show effectiveness in counteracting kidney toxicity from cadmium intoxication. [13] They are also useful support for renal Toxoplasma gondii infections. [14] Red onions are considered healthier than white overall and this is a valuable health switch to make.


After our food has been mashed up into liquid form by the stomach, the small intestines absorb the food nutrients and send them out to the bloodstream to be delivered to the rest of the body. The unusable parts – the wastes – are then pushed into the large intestines / the colon.

In other words, the colon is like the body’s trash can. Imagine how disgusting it can get if it isn’t regularly emptied. A lot of bacteria-filled waste material can be left behind to wreak havoc in our body. Lentils have shown effectiveness in helping eliminate this material from the colon, and that makes them an excellent colon detoxifier. [15]

Now if you feel like washing out the colon for good measure, there’s no need to go for a colonic irrigation. (In any case, many doctors do not recommend colonics anyway, because it heightens our risk of bowel perforation, infection, and electrolyte imbalance.) [16]

Instead, try drinking pineapple juice! This vitamin and fiber-rich liquid is so good at clearing the bowels, it has been consumed to help clear the colons of patients who are about to undergo a colonoscopy procedure. [17]

Finally, don’t forget to encourage the healthy growth of beneficial microorganisms in your colon. One proven way of doing that is by eating globe artichokes. [18]

Indeed, though modern medicine may pooh-pooh the benefits of faddish “detoxification” methods, we find rich scientific evidence supporting common-sense ways of detoxification: eat healthy food and avoid unhealthy ones.

Some foods, though, have been proven healthier and more powerful detoxifiers than others, and since we can only eat so much, it is good to know which foods confer the greatest benefits.

After all, with all the toxins around us in our modern world, our body can use all the help it can get…

The Role of Gut Health in Detoxification

The health of your gut plays a crucial role in the body’s detoxification processes. A balanced gut microbiome helps in breaking down toxins, absorbing essential nutrients, and eliminating waste efficiently.

Gut Microbiome and Detoxification:
Function: The gut microbiome assists in metabolizing toxins and preventing their absorption into the bloodstream. A healthy gut flora supports the liver and kidneys in detoxification.
Foods for Gut Health: Incorporate probiotics like yogurt, kefir, and fermented vegetables to promote beneficial bacteria growth. Prebiotics, found in foods like garlic, onions, and bananas, feed these good bacteria.

Fiber’s Role in Detox:
Benefits: Dietary fiber aids in the elimination of toxins by promoting regular bowel movements. It binds to toxins in the digestive tract, ensuring they are expelled from the body.
Sources: Include plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and legumes in your diet to ensure adequate fiber intake.

Hydration and Gut Health:
Importance: Staying hydrated is essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system. Water helps dissolve waste products and pass them smoothly through the intestines.
Tips: Drink at least 8 glasses of water a day, and consider herbal teas like peppermint or ginger to soothe the digestive tract.

Focusing on gut health not only supports overall wellness but also enhances your body’s natural detoxification processes. By maintaining a balanced diet rich in probiotics, prebiotics, and fiber, and staying adequately hydrated, you can optimize your body’s ability to detoxify effectively.

The Importance of Hydration in Detoxification

Hydration is a cornerstone of effective detoxification. Water plays a vital role in flushing out toxins, maintaining cellular health, and supporting various bodily functions.

Hydration and Kidney Function:
Role of Kidneys: The kidneys filter blood, removing waste and excess substances, which are then excreted as urine. Adequate water intake ensures efficient kidney function and toxin removal.
Signs of Dehydration: Dark urine, fatigue, and dry skin can indicate dehydration, which hampers detoxification.

Water as a Detoxifier:
Transporting Nutrients: Water aids in the transportation of essential nutrients to cells and the removal of metabolic waste.
Aiding Digestion: Proper hydration helps break down food and ensures smooth movement through the digestive tract, preventing toxin buildup.

Daily Water Intake:
Recommendations: Aim for at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day. This amount can vary based on activity level, climate, and individual needs.
Hydration Tips: Start your day with a glass of water, carry a reusable water bottle, and infuse water with natural flavors like lemon or cucumber for added detox benefits.

Hydration Beyond Water:
Herbal Teas: Teas like dandelion, ginger, and green tea not only hydrate but also provide additional detoxifying properties.
Hydrating Foods: Consume water-rich fruits and vegetables such as watermelon, cucumbers, and oranges to boost hydration.

Maintaining proper hydration is essential for supporting your body’s natural detoxification processes. By ensuring you drink enough water and include hydrating foods and teas in your diet, you can enhance your overall health and well-being.

😳 What Tinnitus Does To Your Brain Cells (And How To Stop It)

After 47 years of studies and countless brain scans done on more than 2,400 tinnitus patients, scientists at the MIT Institute found that in a shocking 96% of cases, tinnitus was actually shrinking their brain cells.

As it turns out, tinnitus and brain health are strongly linked.

Is because they are using something called "the wire method", a simple protocol inspired by a classified surgery on deaf people from the 1950s...
