5 Simple and Safe Detox Methods

The human body functions on a natural detox system wherein the liver and the kidneys play a major role in ridding the body of toxins and unwanted substances. To enhance the process of natural detoxification in the body, a number of detox diets have been developed. However, these diets mostly focus on diuretics and starvation which can prove to be harmful to the body in multiple ways. It can also cause an electrolyte imbalance in the body.

There are, fortunately, some natural things—mostly lifestyle habits—that you can use to help detoxify your body without harming your body.

In this article, we go back to the basics of detoxing the body. Easy and simple things you can do on a daily basis to detox your body without adding unnecessary stress to it.

But do remember that it is imperative to consult your physician before starting any health regimen. 

Hydration: Everyone knows the importance of water in the human body. A great detox begins with drinking quality filtered water. Staying hydrated is not only important for the body to function properly but also to make sure that your kidneys are equipped with enough water supply to filter out the toxins present in the body. In an article published on detoxsafely.org, it is mentioned that if you are urinating at an interval of an hour, your body is hydrated enough to cleanse the kidneys.

But merely drinking water is not enough. The key lies in ensuring that you are consuming enough number of electrolytes when you drink water. Main electrolytes are potassium, sodium, magnesium, and calcium. To ensure that these electrolytes enter your body, consume a diet rich in vegetables. Inability to do so may lead to an electrolyte imbalance in the body.

Signs that your detox may be creating an electrolyte imbalance:

Irregular Heartbeat

Seizures

Nausea

Fatigue

Vomiting

Confusion

Irritability

Abdominal and Muscle Cramps

Headaches

Constipation or Diarrhoea

Numbness or feelings of Tingling

Drinking lemon: Most detox diets contain lemon water or lemon tea as a component primarily because of the high number of nutrients present in the fresh lemon juice. One cup of fresh lemon juice contains approximately 187% of daily Vitamin C, 4% of daily magnesium, 9% of daily potassium, 4% of daily fiber, and 8% of daily folate.

One of the healthiest ways of incorporating lemon into your diet is to consume fresh lemon juice in warm water in the morning right after you wake up. This drink rehydrates your body after sleep and also supplies key electrolytes such as potassium, calcium, and magnesium. Moreover, the acids along with the lemon juice enable your body to digest healthy food more slowly. The drawn-out rate of food absorption, in Dr. Axe’s opinion, means that your body has fewer insulin spikes during the day which will help in regulating your hormones and leads to a firmer energy supply.

In addition to all that, lemon is diuretic in nature that helps you flush out excess water from the body. The acidic properties of lemon help in ridding the urinary tract of unwanted elements. Also, the antioxidant nature of lemons improves the condition and radiance of the skin while boosting your energy and mood.

Exercise and Yoga: Exercising is a proven method of ridding the body of stress and supporting a healthy functioning of the body. Working out is the most efficient method of improving digestion and blood circulation.

Remove Junk Food from your diet: One of the simple ways of detoxifying the body is to not feed it any chemicals and artificial food and flavors in the first place. Consuming sulfur-rich foods such as onions and garlic which have high anti-oxidant properties is essential to help the body in fighting repel toxins and free radicals.

Getting enough sleep: Having a sleep routine is important to ensure the proper functioning of the body. It is during the sleep process the body rejuvenates and heals itself.

Who should opt for a detox cleanse?

As convenient as it might seem, not everyone can go for a detox cleanse. People who require a detox cleanse might experience one or more of the following symptoms:

  • A persistent Headache
  • Food Allergies
  • Constipation
  • Acne and other skin issues
  • Hormonal imbalances
  • Weight Loss
  • Regular use of NSAIDs

Though these symptoms can be linked to an electrolyte imbalance and you may need a detox cleansing but the similar symptoms may be linked to some other health conditions as well. It is crucial to get in touch with your physician before deciding to do a detox cleanse on your body.

Some steps that can be taken in the detoxification is to include fruits and vegetables in your diet for their rich content of micronutrients and phytochemicals. One of the best ways to detox the body is to give it natural filler. To detoxify the body through the liver and the kidneys, it is important to keep the digestive system running properly and therefore the last thing you would want to do is to starve yourself. If a detox encourages the mass-evacuation of the digestive tract, then it should be avoided at all cost.
