Body have its own  system of filtering and eliminating toxins from your body. The major organs in this detoxification system are the liver, kidneys and colon. In detox process, you assist the three major organs involved in detoxification by taking in nutrients that nourish them and by eating foods that have “detoxifying” properties. Start detoxing process by eliminating in your alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats, all of these act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Than start eating  foods that help in detoxifying your body.

Fiber

All the detoxification in the world will not work if bad stuff doesn’t come out of our bodies eventually. For that, enough fiber is needed. Most health research points to about 20-30g of fiber per day being a good starting point. Again, this works out to about 5-8 servings of vegetables and fruits. For general health the total fiber amount tends to matter more than the actual type of fiber. However citrus pectindoes have a special benefit for clearing heavy metals which are found in most polluted areas.

Water

Requirement of water differ according to environment and person to person, a petite lady in an air-conditioned office would require less water than a muscular large framed man working outdoors.  So the indicator that you are probably getting enough water each day is 4-6 colorless urinations per day. Aim for that and that should be enough to keep your detoxification system humming.

Sea Weeds

Food and marine scientists worldwide are working to improve the image of seaweeds, seaweed acts like a filter in the body to detoxify and cleanse the system. It is also believed to help regulate metabolism and purify the blood.

Fasting

Fasting can assist your body in a re-boot of your metabolism, allow time for your digestive system to empty and rest, as well as break unwanted cravings and addictive behavioral patterns.

Use Herbs

Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle, and drinking green tea.

Use Lemon in Water

Drink a large glass of water with juice from half of a lemon in the morning. Lemon helps re-hydrate the system and promotes digestion, which will help the flow of waste out of your body.

Exercise Regularly

Yoga or jump-roping are good. Plan one hour every day, also try Qigong, a martial-arts based exercise system that includes exercises specifically for detoxifying or cleansing, as well as many other exercises with specific health benefits.
