Cleansing and detoxification of the body will stimulate your immune system and help you to stay healthy during the holiday season. Most people are familiar with the basics of detoxification involving healthy juices, smoothies, large amounts of water and a healthy diet. Although it sounds simple, most have problems with maintenance plan and schedule a healthy diet. Below is a detoxification program that everyone can adhere to.
With the implementation of the program take 1 to 2 weeks before the holiday season, clean the body, induce the immune system and prepare for the increased calorie intake. If you already eat organic foods, this program will definitely suit you. Try to include as many items from the list and you will feel better. Besides you will prepare the body, detoxification will give strength to the holidays as soon as possible after the return to everyday life. For better results, this program can be implemented for more than two weeks.
Start each day with one to two glasses of water with a pinch of sea salt and lemon juice. Water plays a crucial role in detoxification.
Before showering make a dry body pilling. Start from the legs to the heart. This will stimulate the lymphatic system to remove wastes from the body, will release the skin from the dead cells and open the pores.
During showering alternate cold and hot water at intervals of 30 seconds. The shower should last a maximum of 5 minutes. This way showering is excellent for stimulating the lymphatic system work and strengthening the nervous system.
Before use of cosmetics and perfumes see their ingredients. Most of them contain toxic properties. During detoxification, follow these instructions and use organic cosmetics.
Limit your intake of coffee to one cup a day and make sure it is from organic farming. If you need to consume large amounts of caffeine, try to replace it with tea with jasmine or green tea. It is desirable to consume teas without caffeine. An ideal choice for detoxifying are ginger tea and peppermint.
For complete detoxification is necessary to pay attention to nutrition.
Eat organic foods. Choose good quality fruits and vegetables, chicken, home-grown and wild fish. During the implementation of the program pay attention to the quality and not the quantity of food.
Avoid gluten, dairy, soy and corn. These foods can cause inflammation and mucus produced in the organism. Also consider removing all grains from your diet for the duration of the program.
From the diet completely eliminate industrial sugar. The need for sugar satisfy it with fruit. Also make sure to choose fruit trees. Choose fruits with low glycemic index: berries, apples and pears. Sugar in any form weakens the immune system.
In daily diet include healthy juices too. Make a tasty juice of dandelion, turnip, ginger, red pepper, garlic and lemon. Try to avoid fruit juices. The juice can be consumed in the morning for breakfast or as an afternoon snack.
Get moving. Choose your favorite form of movement, such as walking, cycling, pilates or yoga. The lymphatic system has no pump that would assist in eliminating waste, so we must help the movement. Enter the gym or select fast walking, and you spend at least 20 minutes a day.
Focus on your breath. Every inhalation and exhalation can be a form of detoxification. Each day set aside at least 5 minutes of deep breathing from the diaphragm. Find a comfortable position and focus on slow, deep breaths and breaths more easily.
Make a diet rich in fiber. If you have problems with digestion, try to encourage it with flax and chia seeds soaked in yogurt.
Sweating is extremely important for detoxification, so treat yourself to a steam or infrared sauna.
Leave early to rest. The body regenerates while we sleep it is important to sleep 7 to 9 hours. Keep in mind that the body recovers mostly between 10 o’clock and two o’clock in the morning. Do you have trouble sleeping, turn off all the lights an hour before going to bed, take a shower, drink tea and take a breath a couple of times with lavender essential oil.
Also there are a number of herbal and nutritional supplements that can help with detoxification. Feel free to insert the feeding, but before that check their origin and quality.
