If your domestic supply is good, tap water is good too. Herbal teas are excellent, but read the label, some of them can be very powerful! Fruit and vegetable juices are fantastic but have them instead of a meal, not as an extra. Some of them are quite high in kilojoules. Some people take supplements when detoxification, others not. I like to take an herb called milk thistle. ” It helps the liver to cleanse and heal. Rapid detox can make you very sick and can happen if you go too fast in the detoxification of a bad diet loaded with fat and sugar chemical colors and flavors.

Try to eliminate the bad foods first and go to a healthier diet before attempting detox. However, if you have mild headaches or drowsiness, try to stick with it. It is a sign that the body is eliminating toxins. Brushing the skin (or dry brushing) can aid in the detoxification process, use a sponge or natural bristle brush and starting hands brush the skin gently. Always start in the extremities and work towards the heart or center of your body. Skin brushing helps circulation, remove dead skin cells and make you feel rejuvenated. The exercise also helps.

The exercise will make the body sweat, speeding up the elimination of toxic wastes. No need to run a marathon, do what you like but do it regularly. You can find your skin will get worse before it gets better, but soon you’ll see a clear and radiant complexion. Acne will improve, your eyes will look clearer and, as a bonus, you may find your appetite decreases and sugar cravings diminish. Pregnant women should consult their doctor before attempting detox. Young children or sick people should not radically alter your diet in any way. Consult a doctor first. Just as a thought. It is better to be in a healthy diet most of the time to be in a bad diet and regular detoxification. It’s what we do every day counts. Try using this detox time to rethink your eating habits and lifestyles. I wish I had better skin appearance? will give detailed information on all aspects of skin care.
