04 May DETOXIFY YOUR BODY WITH OUR TOP 7 TIPS
Our bodies are soooo smart, telling us so many different things including when they are feeling bright and energised, and when its time for a bit of R&R to detoxify and cleanse!
Here are a few signs that may remind you that its time to detoxify and cleanse your body!
- Sweet Cravings
- Bad breath
- Excess sweating
- Gas or bloating
Can you relate to any of these symptoms? Fear not! There are some seriously simple ways to detoxify your body. Such as:
Eating plenty of veggies:
Broccoli, cabbage, bok choy, cauliflower and brussel sprouts help to eliminate harmful toxins from the body.
There is a reason you get called ‘intoxicated’ when you have had a few too many glasses of bubbles – its because alcohol essentially is TOXIC! Don’t get me wrong we love poppin’ bottles with the girls, but if you are looking to detoxify your body, you should really look at laying off the grog for a little bit.
Get your antioxidant on:
Take your supplements, carrots, sweet potatoes, berries, onions and DARK CHOCOLATE – who said detoxing is all bad?
Try intermittent fasting:
Intermittent fasting is a proven way of detoxifying the body. Try skipping breakfast and having your first meal of the day at lunchtime.
Cut out carbs and refined sugars:
This includes soft drink, baked treats and lollies and replace these with whole foods such as raw nuts, wholegrain foods, avocados, organic chicken, fish and free range eggs during the period that you are detoxing for.
Start your day with warm water and squeezed lemon:
This helps flush out the toxins and alkalizes the bod. Another option is apple cider vinegar and water to start your day off right.
Drink green and herbal teas:
Peppermint, green and dandelion teas are all easy ways to detoxify your body and clear out toxins whilst sitting at your desk.
