Detoxing, why and how do you do it?

Our body has to deal with a large amount of toxins (toxic substances) on a daily basis. Detoxing , also called detoxing , means to rid the body of these waste products. When you are completely healthy, the body does this on its own. However, it can sometimes be useful to give your body a helping hand. This can be done, for example, through food or supplements. But how does that work, detoxification? And how can we give our body a helping hand? We will go into this further in this article.

A comprehensive detoxification system

Over the years, the amount of toxins that our body has to deal with has increased (unnoticed). Not only natural toxins from food, but also artificial toxins for example, additives in food, medication or the air (particulate matter, perfume, paint, etc.) penetrate our body. Our body is happy a comprehensive detoxification system to deal with that and to clean up this waste, so that we don’t get sick from it. The kidneys, liver and intestines together form a well-functioning system, which has a day job to ensure that our body does not get sick. at a A surplus of toxic substances makes us sick, for example the development of allergies, skin problems, fatigue or even cancer.

Lend a hand

Because the amount of toxins in our body can be very high, it makes sense to give your body a helping hand every now and then. U.S body’s own detoxification system After all, it has an extremely important function and we have to take good care of it. By consciously detoxing your body you can prevent a lot of complaints and illness. A detox so every now and then is a good plan. This allows the kidneys, intestines and liver to relax for a while. But how do you do that, detox? The good news is that it is completely not difficult or expensive and that you can just do it at home. As a (small) addition or adjustment to you daily routine and diet .

Healthy food and water

Maybe an open door, but the first step is eating healthy and drinking lots of water. By healthy eating we mainly mean omitting processed food and alcohol. This is an easy way to get fewer toxins right away. As mentioned, processed foods contain additives, which we ingest in addition to the natural toxins and which the body has to clean up again. The liver must also work hard to break down alcohol. Drinking water is necessary so that our body has enough water to work and to remove waste products. When fewer toxins enter our body during a detox, it also has time to to get rid of excess toxins .

Detoxifying Foods

If you have already started eating healthy and drinking water, you can also do even more with nutrition to support your body. There are different foods , which help us to maintain our health and which naturally have a purifying effect to have. Apples and bananas are examples of everyday fruits that support our gut. Bananas are also a source of essential minerals, such as selenium and potassium, which our brains need. Cabbage and many green vegetables do well as detox foods, which digestion improves. Garlic and artichoke are also popular detoxifiers. Garlic has antiviral, antibacterial and antibiotic properties and artichoke is packed with antioxidants and fiber and stimulates liver function. Perhaps the best-known foods for a detox are ginger , lemon and turmeric. These three products are powerful detoxifiers with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. In another article you can read more about ginger, turmeric and lemon as detoxifiers.

Other forms of detox

In addition to detoxing through foods, there are a number of other ways you can do that. For example, think of (juice)cures , (deslagging) clay or activated carbonas well as supplements. Most detox methods are harmless And you really can’t go wrong with nutrition. Some of these methods, such as clay (products) and activated carbon, do associated with risks and may, if used incorrectly or for a long time, even make the body sick. Clay products can contain aluminum and other harmful substances. Long-term use of activated charcoal can lead to a deficiency of enzymes and vitamins that bind to activated charcoal. Too much acid (such as lemon juice or (apple) vinegar can also cause tooth erosion. So always pay close attention when using these types of products and always consult a doctor if in doubt.
