Today there are toxins everywhere around you from the air you breathe in to water you drink to hygiene products you use. There are chemical toxins everywhere around including pesticides, surfactants, carcinogens, reproductive toxins, hormone disruptors and more. Earth’s Wisdom wants to introduce you to the most natural ways of detoxifying your body.
1. Sweating with Exercise
Arsenic, mercury, cadmium and lead exposures are widespread today. These are toxins that produce health risks. Sweating has long been considered as a form of detoxification and cleansing. Studies on individuals with high exposure to these toxins have shown that sweat concentrations were more than urine and plasma concentrations, with levels more during endurance-related exercises than intensive activities. Thus sweating with higher amounts of endurance-related exercises is a natural way to detox.
Our respiratory system is full of air purifiers that help lungs to keep out dangerous substances from entering the body. These include hair in nostrils, microscopic hair-like structures known as cilia in respiratory passages and mucus secreted by bronchial tubes and trachea that stop bacteria, viruses and dust from going into the lungs. Still, if any impurity passes through, it is caught by mucus and then coughed out.
You can make this whole system work more efficiently with the breathing techniques in yoga which are natural detox methods. Another breathing technique called qigong in Chinese healthcare system has been found by studies to help in detoxification of heroin addicts.
Cilantro is very effective when it comes to flushing heavy metals from the body. A study has shown that mercury deposits were totally eliminated after oral consumption of a 100 mg tablet of cilantro four times a day. Also it has been found that cilantro consumption can accelerate the removal of mercury, aluminum and lead deposits.
Ginger is used for a variety of diseases from stomach pains to cancer. But it’s not widely known that it has some fantastic detoxifying properties too. While it doesn’t detox body by itself, it promotes stomach health, supports digestive system and reduces inflammation.
5. Bentonite Clay
The idea of consuming clay may be a little disgusting; however natural clay is fantastic for internal detox. Bentonite clay is made from volcanic ash and widely found in Italy and Northwestern United States. This clay works like a sponge while passing through your body and soaks water and expands, thus forming a sponge-like porous structure that takes toxins in.
6. Lymphatic Drainage Massage
A lymphatic drainage massage is usually associated to decreasing the size of lymphedemas. However its main purpose is detoxification and disposing of metabolic waste from the body. Majority of lymph nodes are present between skeletal muscles. When the muscles move, a pumping action takes place and thereby the lymph fluid moves across the body. Key pressure points are used in lymphatic drainage massage to make muscles work in a particular way or work harder than usual to enhance the movement of lymph fluid across the body.
Most people know about the positive effects of probiotics on the body but rarely know about their natural detox properties. Various probiotic strains are best for particular functions. E.g. probiotic strains in kimchi have been found to help in breaking down pesticides that enter the body through air and food. Another probiotic strain, lactobacillus bacteria found in our EARTH'S WISDOM probiotic, bind to heavy metals without damaging their cells and prevent damage to our body caused by those heavy metals.
Fiber is also known more for promoting the health of digestive tract but not known as a natural detox. Fiber frees your body from toxins by binding to them and carrying them out of the body with itself.
All in all, if you are wondering how to detox your body, solutions are around you and they are so easy. With these natural detox methods, you can get rid of toxins without even realizing it.
