(WellnessNova.com) - You’ve probably heard about how important detoxing is. Cleansing your body of toxins is one key to living a healthy lifestyle. But how do you go about it? There are dozens of ways to detox your body. We’re rounding up some of the most popular, healthy methods out there. If you’re looking to detox, give some of these a shot and see what works best for you.
1. Lemon Juice, Cayenne Pepper, and Maple Syrup
While it might not sound appetizing, this detox shot is popular among celebrities like Beyoncé and Jennifer Aniston. But you don’t have to be famous to feel its purifying effects! A shot of lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup is loaded with antioxidants, which neutralize toxins in your body.
How do you make it? Mix lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and a hint of maple syrup together. For about three days at a time you’ll drink this solution. For best results, use this method about three to four times a year.
2. Colon Cleanse
All right, let’s get this one out of the way. Colon cleanses might not be your first detox choice, but a clean colon is key when clearing your body of toxins and keeping a stable gut environment. Regular enemas (which you can administer yourself at home) and colon cleanses are a lot easier to perform than they sound and the benefits make this method more than worthwhile.
3. Detox Foot Spas
Who doesn’t want to hang out at a spa? Detox foot spas, offered at many spas and available for purchase, can supposedly detox the body by drawing out toxins through the feet, which are immersed in a small tub of salt water. It’s hard to say if this detox method is worth your consideration – many spas offer fake detox foot spas that don’t really clear toxins out of your body. On the bright side, this is probably the easiest and most relaxing way to detox.
4. The Apple Detox Diet
Apples aren’t just for teachers. The apple detox diet has become increasingly popular among people looking to detox the natural way. Like the lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup shot you’ll be detoxing your body three days at a time, eating organic apples such as red Delicious and Oregon Reds. Apples are full of fiber and water, which are perfect ingredients for helping your body process internal toxins.
5. Detox Pills
Many people prefer to detox with pills simply because it’s an easy, straightforward method. Pop the pill and you’re good to go. It might not be the most natural method but it can be a fast and easy way to give your body a much needed deep cleaning.
6. A Juice Fast
Have a juicer? You might be a fan of this nifty detox method. Everyday for 15 days juice up some good, organic fruits and veggies and drink a glass. This fills your body with healthy vitamins and minerals while flushing out unwanted toxins and harmful acids out of your body.
7. Sweating It Out (in a Sauna)
Saunas are one of the most popular detox methods around. They make you sweat fast and when you sweat, you’re expelling any toxin buildup in your body. Saunas are fun, easy, and available at public pools and spas all over the place, making them an affordable way to detox quickly.
8. Epsom Salt Baths
Draw a bath and jump in. Taking an Epsom salt bath is both one of the most effective and most popular detox methods on the market. Like sweating, Epsom salts also help draw toxins out through your pores by making you sweat.
9. Lemon Water
Don’t confuse this with the lemon juice, cayenne pepper, and maple syrup shot. By adding a little bit of lemon juice to your water throughout the day, you can help flush out toxins and metabolize fat. As you very well know, water helps cleanse the body. Lemon juice basically puts the natural cleansing properties of water into overdrive.
You may not think of exercise as a detox method but it really is. Not only are you forcing your body to sweat but you’re also boosting your body’s natural metabolism and inner cleansing processes, making it easier for your body to cleanse itself out.
Detoxing your body is a necessary part of living a healthy lifestyle. And there are a lot of ways to do it. Whether you want to incorporate a daily detox routine or go for a heavy detox a couple of times a year, cleaning toxins out of your body is key. Try these trendy methods and you might just find your next favorite.
