How to Detox Your Body
Ways to detoxify your body and
how to improve your detox regime
This site gives you useful tips on how to detox your body the right way.
When you start detoxing your body consider integrating the 4 steps I have listed below.
Adding those steps enhances your cleansing experience.
Step 1 - Do not put in more Toxins
Before you start any body detox regime you should first look at where you can lessen toxic chemicals entering your body.
There is no point doing a cleansing and filling up the body with unhealthy substances at the same time.
Eat more fresh food, salad, steamed vegetables instead of fried and other heavy meals.
Water is very important for the body. It helps to purge out unwanted matter. Drink enough pure and clean water.
Do not drink tap water that is treated with fluor, chlorine or other toxic chemicals.
Be conscious of what you use as your body care products, like body creams and shampoo etc..
The skin absorbs toxins too. Read the label and avoid products with endless synthetic chemicals and fillers in it.
Household cleaning agents are other toxin-bombs. Choose eco-friendly products instead. They are better for you and the environment.
Step 2 - Stress produces Toxins too
It is often overlooked that too much stress can impair the natural cleansing process and when your body
is stressed it also produces Body Toxins. Getting around stress is not always easy but luckily there are
many useful treats that help to keep stress at bay.
Anything that has a calming effect is beneficial. Massage, Yoga, Meditation or breathing excercises
like alternate nostil breathing, all helps in reducing stress.
If you drink lots of coffee, cut down with it. Instead drink teas that have a calming effect like Camomile,
Lime-tree and Rhodiola.
Step 3 - Go with the Pace of Your Body
As a build up of toxins does not happen overnight neighter does cleansing it out. If you want to cleanse
thoroughly it needs some time. If you push your body too much you may experience unplesant detox symptoms.
Start slowly with one detox program at the time.
Step 4 - Let your Body Recharge and Rebalance
When you sleep your body works on recharging and rebalancing it's system. Make sure, you give yourself enough rest.
Not every person requires the same amount of sleep. Do you constantly have difficulty in the morning getting out of bed?
Still feeling tired? Give yourself half an hour more night sleep or have an extra afternoon rest. Listen to your body!
Below is a summary on how to detox your body with all the various types of detoxification available.

It gives you an overall view with a brief description helping to find the right one for you.
Saunas / Dry Sauna / Infrared Sauna / Steam Sauna
Sweating is a great way to detox your body. Saunas have a long tradition. Sauna stimulates and increases
the natural detoxification process through the largest detox organ, the skin. Many health professionals
recommend saunas. The health benefits of sauna are scientifically proven.
Colonics or Colon Hydrotherapy / Enema / Coffee Enema
The practice of colon hydrotherapy uses water to cleanse the entire colon. It helps to flush out old and clogged up
debris and faecal matter. Colonics is carried out by a certified colon hydrotherapist and the session takes around
half to one hour. The client lies on a table and the water is applied into the anus.
Enemas can be easily self-applied at home. The system is more or less the same as colonics except that, the enema
reaches only the lower part of the colon. Some herbs like chamomile can be added to the water. Coffee Enema is said
to help in detoxing the liver.
