Start the new year fresh and clear of toxins
Christmas and New Year holidays is right around the corner, ‘tis the season to overdo it with delicious food, scrumptious desserts and plenty of alcohol. With all the party cocktails, buttery rolls and cookie swaps, you might start to feel bloated and tired, gain a few extra pounds with a tinge of guilt.
For a fresh and smooth start of the new year, we need to eliminate the toxins our body has accumulated during the holidays. A physical detox and mental cleanse will help to bring back your glow!
1. Go to bed before midnight
The liver does most of its job to detox between 11pm and 1am, so go to bed early and detox while you sleep. By turning in early, you are making it easier for your body to detox naturally, which helps combat skin problems too.
2. Eliminate unhealthy food
You already had your fair share of unhealthy food and alcohol during the holiday season, now you need a few days to get rid of the intoxicating aliments. Avoid high-gluten foods like bread and pasta, pre-packaged foods, animal protein, dairy, alcohol, caffeine, unnecessary over-the-counter medications, fast food, sugar, artificial sweeteners and salt.
3. Drink lots of water
Upon waking up, immediately drink a glass of warm cup of water with a slice of lemon each morning. This will help to hydrate and alkalize the body, eliminates mucus toxins, kickstarts the bowels to promote healthy digestion, lowers blood sugar and breaks down fat. You need to drink at least 2 litres of water a day, this will help cleanse the system and brighten the mood. It works to flush away toxins and improve brain functionality.
4. Eat the right food
Increase your intake of fruits and vegetables. This will help flush toxins away. Cruciferous vegetables like broccoli, brussels sprouts and broccoli sprouts contain antioxidants to support detoxification and balance the endocrine system. If you must snack, stick with the under-five ingredient rule; it’s important that you can understand and pronounce every ingredient you find on the package. Stay away from highly processed foods.
5. Eat healthier fats
Healthy fats like omega-3 which are usually found in salmon, as well as olive oil, nuts and seeds, help your body to absorb essential vitamins and maintain an ideal hormonal balance.
6. Start a juice cleanse
A juice cleanse is a tasty and restful experience, it gives your digestive system a chance to reboot and flush unwanted toxins. You can easily begin a juice cleanse at home which saves you a lot of money. Use a juicer instead of a blender, and try a 3-day DIY juice cleanse, which means no coffee and no solid food. The idea is that you drink six juices a day, with as much water and green tea as you want.
7. Dry skin brushing
Try skin brushing to stimulate the lymphatic system and support detoxification. Your skin is your largest organ, so taking care of it is very important. Dry skin brushing with a soft, natural bristle brush before bathing can help to remove dead skin cells, and stimulate the lymph system, glands and hormonal system which enhances the detox. Always brush upwards towards the heart and be gentle with the strokes. Dry skin brushing will improve skin condition externally and health condition internally.
