We are exposed to toxins from the environment all the time, even in the simplest of our daily routines. Common pollutants are found in the water we drink, the food we eat and the air we breathe. Too many toxins put our body in a sub-healthy state, and may even lead to the development of diseases. If you have the symptoms below, they are signs that there are too many toxins in your body!
- Sleep disorders, insomnia
- Skin rash, Eczema, itch
- Bad breath, body odour
- Weakened immune system
- Allergic to environmental factors and chemicals
Here are 5 simple ways to detoxify your body:
Exercise accelerates perspiration, this helps to expel some toxins from the body through the skin.
2. Stay Hydrated
Drinking sufficient water can dilute the toxins in the body and help reduce the burden on the kidneys. This can promote metabolism and increase the elimination of toxins. It is important to drink enough water daily so that toxins from the body can be excreted through the urine.
3. Eat more Fibre
To ensure good intestinal health, the most important thing is to adjust your diet and lifestyle habits. It is recommended to include more fresh fruits, vegetables and whole grain foods to your diet as they are rich in fibre and vitamins.
4. Take Probiotics
Probiotics can promote peristalsis (contraction and relaxation of muscles) of the intestinal wall, this inhibits the growth of harmful bacteria in the intestine and accelerates the elimination of harmful substances. Probiotics are best taken in the morning, on an empty stomach.
5. Soak in a Bath
A good soak can flush the acidic wastes that accumulated in the subcutaneous tissue of our skin and metabolise carbon dioxide and harmful substances retained in the body. However, this is not recommended for elderly with thinning skin and reduced elasticity.
