Detoxification: Top Ten Ways to Support Detox on a Raw Foods Diet

Aid your body with the process of detoxification by using these simple, yet highly effective methods of supporting your body’s natural detoxification process.

  1. Breathe: Deep full inhalations and exhalations bring in extra oxygen and clear out more carbon dioxide and other toxins.
  2. Drink Water: And lots of it! Water keeps you hydrated for efficient cellular functioning and helps the body flush out toxins easily and efficiently.
  3. Exercise: Even moderate exercise such as walking moves lymph through the body, increases circulation and makes sure you follow suggestion number 1, breathing fully and deeply.
  4. Sweat: Water in, sweat out. This is a successful formula for supporting detoxification as well as healthy, glowing skin.
  5. Stretch: Keep muscles, ligaments, tendons, and joints active. Squeeze out toxins and invite fluid replacement with a regular stretching.
  6. Drink Green Drinks: smoothies or juices that are made from leafy greens, veggies and fruits are a delicious way to consume more alkalizing minerals and help your body detoxify.
  7. Dry Brush: Before you shower, brush the body lightly in small circles with a natural bristle brush moving from the extremities toward the heart. Mildly stimulate the skin, do not hurt or redden this sensitive organ.
  8. Contrast Hydrotherapy: Alternating a hot and cold water rinse at the end of your shower, ending with cold stimulates and promotes healing.
  9. Drink a Detox Tea: Inform your naturopathic provider of your Detoxification plan and get their recommendation.
  10. Sleep: Getting plenty of rest is always important, but especially so when your body is packing up and shipping out stored toxins. Make time to nap if needed.

These are the easiest and most basic ways to support your body in the process of successful detoxification. In addition to aiding your body in removing toxins you are supporting the body with what you consume when you choose a raw foods detox diet plan. The additional antioxidants, phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber have massive benefits for detoxification as well as regeneration and healing.
