4 Simple Detox Rituals
These simple rituals make it easy to take on as habits to do regularly, they are not complicated and are not time consumers either. Each one feels refreshing also! Give them a try.
- Dry Body Brushing: Using a dry body brush to brush your skin, drains lymphatic system, aids in breaking down toxins and several other health and beauty benefits you can read more about it in my dry body brushing post. I take my dry bristle brush with a handle brush my body starting at limbs and working my way to my heart, it feels really good to dry body brush my entire body before I hop into the shower…
- Detox Baths: 2 cups of baking soda, 2 cups of Epsom salts (I keep a large bag of baking soda and Epsom salts under my bathroom sink). The baking soda alkalizes the water which is important. Also, drink a glass of water with 1/2 of a freshly squeezed lemon before you get in the bath. This alkalizes your body, helping your body release toxins when the Epsom salts pull them out from your body… Make your bath as hot as you can handle and when you sit in your bath for at least 20 minutes, it is great if your face feels sweaty… That is a great detox bath and soothes your achy muscles also and a great source of absorbing magnesium which many people are deficient in.
- Sweat: Regular sweating helps release a lot of toxins. I am into burst workouts, where you go all out for 30-60 seconds then rest for 2 minutes for about 15-20 minutes total. Saunas and steam rooms are good also, and an infrared sauna is the best. Some people get infrared sauna’s for their home, they have good 1 to 2 person’s ones for around $1200 or get infrared mats, I have the infrared vita mat which I love to lay on at night.
- Morning Lemon Water: Right when I wake up, I take my green tea extract supplements, cell pro7, with a tall glass of room temperature water with 1/2 lemon squeezed in it. The water can be room temperature or warm, I find that room temperature is easiest! I am all about ease.
How Toxins Affect Your Body & More Ways to Detox
Our world is so full of toxins and many of us are overloaded with them causing all kinds of problems from fatigue and foggy brain to inability to adapt to stress well and many more issues. It is a good thing to not only reduce the number of toxins we breathe and put on our skin but also to help our bodies release toxin build up. For years now I have been told I have heavy metal toxins in my blood, I am sure this has contributed to my health battles with cancer, fatigue, and inability to handle stress well at times. Doing research all the time on how to improve my health is a lifelong journey and fun passion for me. One of the things I finally did recently was a thorough gut cleanse through Gut 5 in Thrive which taught me a lot about how to detox and helped regain balance in my gut.
Being in the health blog world, I learn so much, and one of the things I am really excited about is doing a True Cellular Detox designed by Dr. Pompa, which has been proven to rid the body of heavy metals amongst other things better than anything else because it gets to the cell and uses true binders that bind to the metals and takes them completely out of the body, this detox is good for mold, metals or hidden infections that cause problems that the conventional doctors can’t find a root cause. MTHFR Gene mutation if you have it and I do, also means that your body does not detox easily, so I for sure need help with detox and taking on some of these habits I have listed above and doing some of these detox programs have been good for me. I love to share what I learn so that if someone is trying to figure out what is wrong with them or want to feel better and any of this helps them figure it out, then that just makes me smile because I know what it is like to not feel well and what a relief it is to get solutions that work.
