A healthy summer detox is one of the best ways to replenish your body, prepping you up for this year’s festivities. With the harvest of fresh and organic fruits and vegetables, you have much to work with in creating a simple detoxifying program that cleanses your body, mind, and spirit. You will feel lighter, your skin becomes healthier, and even your brain power improves.
A summer detox focuses on several key elements:
- Easing digestive problems, boosting energy, and cleansing the liver, which is your body’s main tool for detoxification.
- Improving the quality of your skin, concentration, and mood.
- Flushing out the toxins from your body and filling it with needed nutrients
- Reducing headaches and pains
Here are five steps to a simple but nourishing summer detox:
1. Salt Baths
Also known as “halo therapy,” salt is a great way to cleanse the body of bacteria and mucous. It also helps in relieving respiratory problems. Consider a dip in the sea or a salt room as part of your detox routine.
Healthy juices enable you to deeply cleanse the body, filling it with needed vitamins and minerals. Moreover, the liquids flush out the toxins and impurities, making you feel lighter and healthier inside. You can find plenty of healthy juice recipes on the web to experiment with your juicer at home.
3. Fruits & Vegetables
Not only are they delicious, organic fruits and veggies give you more energy, nutrients that improve the skin, brain, and your overall mood, and they cleanse the liver for optimum performance. Stock up on lemons, leafy vegetables, garlic, and broccoli sprouts on your next grocery visit.
4. Hot Water
A hot bath or a sauna can do wonders as it increases blood flow and encourages your body to sweat out the impurities. You can complement this with aromatherapy, such as grapefruit and rosemary oils for purification and better circulation.
Known for its wondrous absorbing abilities, charcoal can remove impurities in the environment, especially the air and water supply. Edible charcoal powder can also be bought to absorb intestinal toxins in your body.
Depending on your needs and how much your body can take, a summer detox can last for 2 weeks to a month.
