things can detox body naturally

Drink Plenty of Water

Water is important for the health of all your vital organs, as it aids in every metabolic process in the body.

Water also flushes your body of toxins through elimination. In fact, water helps your body better eliminate feces, which contain a good amount of toxins. When you keep the bowel and digestive system healthy, it helps your body get rid of harmful toxins each time you use the bathroom.

keep yourself hydrated

Aim to drink between eight and 10 glasses of fresh water each day. However, you may need less or more, depending upon your climate and activity level on any given day.

For better detoxification, each morning on an empty stomach, drink a glass of water that has been stored in a copper vessel to keep your digestive system working properly.

Always check the color of your urine to find out whether your body is well hydrated. If your urine color is clear, it means your water intake is sufficient.

Start your Day with Lemon Water

To reduce the amount of harmful toxins in your body, start each day with a glass of lemon water.

The citric acid in lemon aids in detoxification. The atomic structure of lemon juice is similar to the digestive juices found in the stomach, which aids the liver in producing bile. More bile keeps food moving smoothly through your gastrointestinal tract.

The lemon even alkalizes the pH level of your body, thus making your body resistant to many diseases.

As a bonus, lemon water is a great replacement for the caffeine to which so many of us are addicted.

To make lemon water, squeeze the juice from half a lemon into a glass of purified, lukewarm water. If you want, you can add a little raw honey too. Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and wait 30 minutes before eating your breakfast.

You can also enjoy a healthy green smoothie daily prepared from vegetables like spinach, kale, apples, beetroot, etc.

Try Dry Brushing

As the skin is one of the major detoxifying organs of the body, dry brushing is a simple and easy technique that aids in sloughing off the dead cells and the toxins that accumulate deep within your skin.

Dry brushing also activates the sweat glands, which excrete toxins via sweat from your skin.

Take a natural bristle brush or just a dry loofah sponge and stand upright in your bathroom.
Slowly start dry brushing, starting with the extremities and working your way in.
Continue dry brushing for 10 to 20 minutes.
After that, take a long, warm bath and finally rinse yourself under a cool shower.
Nourish your skin with a good moisturizer.
You should dry brush 3 to 5 times a week.

Use Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic technique that aids in removing harmful toxins from within the body. Apart from detoxifying your body, it also stimulates the body’s metabolism-regulating hormones and induces weight loss.

Wait 30 minutes before eating anything.
Do this daily in the morning, on an empty stomach.
