how to cleanse body after quitting smoking

Water

The power of water is often underestimated but it flushes out nicotine from your body speedily!

Water is the body’s natural cleansing agent. It breaks down chemicals and carries them out of your body.

Drinking lots of water daily will help hydrate your body and boost kidney activity and therefore, accelerate the elimination and flushing out of toxins from your body.

I recommend at least 6-8 full glasses of water daily.

You could also add a splash of lemon or lemon juice to cleanse your system of cigarette smoking and other chemicals from smoking.

Garlic

Garlic is wonderful in cleansing your body of nicotine and harmful substances.

Garlic Cloves contains allicin, which helps in clearing the lungs.

You can cook with crushed garlic cloves, sauté with it and add to food, such as vegetables and meat.

If you don’t like the taste of garlic, you could use odourless garlic supplements which are available at local health stores and pharmacies.

Ginger Root

Ginger has many benefits and is a natural way to clear out the lungs.

Ginger root can be purchased from the produce area of most supermarkets.

Ginger root can be used to create a fresh natural ginger tea.

It can also be added to your foods and salads.

Ginger is also available in tablet or capsules form at your local health store

Teas

Green tea contains powerful antioxidant properties that detoxify your body from years of smoking. And help to repair the damage caused by free radicals in cigarette smoke.

It is best to drink 3 or more cups of green tea a day.

White tea, lemon tea and peppermint tea and other herbal teas are also very effective in cleansing your body as well.
