Natural and Practical Ways to Detox & Cleanse Your Body by Donatas

Detoxing is obviously a subject of huge importance for us at The LifeCo. In fact, performing regular body cleanses and detoxes are the core principle of my beliefs on health and healing.

What exactly is a detox? Simply put, a detox is a process in which a person makes lifestyle changes to clear their body of toxins. These lifestyle changes typically involve abstaining from certain harmful things and optimizing body processes. Some changes are temporary, such as following a cleansing diet, others are permanent.

Here are some different detox options that you can easily incorporate into your life:

Clean, Raw and Alkaline Food Cleanse
This is a cleansing method and sometimes prolonged diet that consists of uncooked plant-based foods such as fruits and vegetables combined with adequate amounts of raw nuts, seeds, and sprouts. Phytonutrients, micronutrients, fiber and enzymes cleanses vital organs such as the liver, lungs, skin, colon, kidneys and other systems in the body. It also eliminates acid and balances the alkaline pH level of the blood.

Master Cleanse
This detox consists of a liquid shake such as fresh lemon juice, cayenne pepper, organic grade-B maple syrup and water or the same mixture with added psyllium husk powder for deeper colon cleanse. Both methods aid cleansing of the liver and colon, resulting in good bowl movement, liver function and beautiful skin.

Liquid Cleanse
A liquid cleanse is an excellent way to cleanse the body while still maintaining energy levels. It involves the consumption of fresh organic vegetable juices, miso or liquid soups, green or berry smoothies, and a lot of water.

Liver Cleanse
Regimes for cleansing the liver incorporate bitter greens and chlorophyll juices such as wheat grass and dandelion greens. Other liver-happy foods include carrots, celery, limes, lemons, and beets. Spices that offer cleansing effects on the liver include turmeric, rosemary, cayenne and cumin. Foods to avoid during a liver cleanse are coffee, milk, and sodas.

Juice Cleanse
Juicing is mainly consisting of freshly squeezed vegetables combined with fruits. The best cleansing vegetables are dark leafy greens, parsley, basil, celery, cabbage, cilantro, cucumber, carrots, beets, ginger root, turmeric root and fruits such as green apples, fresh cranberry, lemon and pineapple. If possible use organic and local produce using a slow and cold press juicer.
