You’re designed to thrive. Knowing and putting to use some simple ways to detox your body makes it possible for you to refresh your brain. You can have a clearer mind, a healthier body, better moods, and improved relationships.
Our bodies are under a constant assault from chemicals, bacteria, stress, and viruses whose toxic effects may directly impact our brain functioning. When under attack, the body tends to become inflamed. Inflammation makes it more difficult for the body to deliver nutrients and oxygen to the brain, as the body’s organs become slowed down, or stop working well.
Ways to detox your body and refresh your brain:
- 1. Drink plenty of pure water and add fresh lemon juice
Just like clean water on the outside washes away dirt, sweat and dead skin, pure water on the inside helps the body wash away toxins that build up in the blood stream and organs.
How much water should you drink? Divide your body weight in pounds by half. The number you get is the minimum number of ounces of water that you should drink to keep yourself well hydrated. So, if your weight is 200 pounds, 1oo ounces of water per day is the amount of water needed to stay hydrated. But, be careful not to drink too much water, which can be fatal.
Drinking pure water is important. You want it to be clean, not adding toxins while you’re trying to detox.
Squeezing fresh lemon juice into a warm glass of water in the morning produces a more potent cleansing effect when you drink it. Lemon juice provides a dose of Vitamin C, helping the liver with detoxification, and along with warm water helps stimulate the colon to clear the waste out.
- Breathe deeply
Deep breathing produces increased blood flow to the body’s organs, including the brain. Deep breaths help these organs to clean out waste and take in a fresh supply of oxygen and nutrients.
To breathe deep, stand straight or sit up with your shoulders back. Just place your hands on your belly, breathe in slowly through your nose while counting to 5 and feel your abdomen expand. Then exhale slowly while counting to 5 and feel your belly go down. Repeat this 5 to 10 times. Be careful not to hyperventilate. If you’re prone to dizziness, sitting may be best.
Vigorous activity also stimulates deep breathing, such as running, swimming or brisk walking.
- 3. Replace animal meat and milk with plant foods high in fiber
Think of food fiber as a scrub brush for your insides. Many people eat too little fiber, in turn increasing the risk of a long list of illnesses, such as: heart disease, stroke, high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, and certain diseases of the stomach and intestines.
Meats and milk give us no fiber, and often carry toxins and proteins that put the human body under stress, causing it to break down.
A broken body ultimately produces a broken brain.
Certain foods high in fiber have detoxifying properties. Detoxifying foods high in fiber include: apples, artichokes, avocados, basil, beets, broccoli, carrots, cilantro, fennel, ginger, kale, parsley, pineapple, radishes, onions, and lettuce. But any whole food high in fiber is good for the body. Go for foods that are not genetically modified, that are organic or that are clean of pesticide residue.
- Invigorate your immune system with hydrotherapy
This one’s my favorite. Hydrotherapy is the use of water for healing. Exposing the body to cold water invigorates the immune system by increasing the number of natural killer cells in the blood stream, which attack and destroy viruses. Hot water opens the pores, allowing the skin to cleanse itself of waste and toxins.
Hot-cold contrast showers provide a simple way to use hydrotherapy for detoxing. I do this every morning. It’s my routine for waking up! Try standing in water as hot as you can endure without burning yourself for 2-3 minutes. Next turn the cold water on as low of a temperature that you can endure for 30 seconds. Do this 3 times. Then, after doing this the first time, lay in bed for an hour afterward with enough covers to avoid getting chilled. As your body adapts, you won’t need to lie down afterward.
- Practice and attitude of gratitude
Practicing and attitude of gratitude can produce a more positive outlook, boosting the immune system. The immune system fights invaders that can make us sick and cause disease. Make a habit of ending each day by telling someone, or writing in a journal, 3 things that you are thankful
3 cups watermelon, organic, seeded, diced
7 strawberries, organic
1/2 lemon, peeled, juiced
1 cup purified water
Blend watermelon, strawberries and lemon. Pour into a large glass jar, pour water into jar. Top jar with lid, shake well, or stir. Serve over ice.
