(NaturalNews) Springtime represents a great opportunity to detoxify the body. Don't ignore the dangers of heavy metal toxicity or environmental pollution which threaten human health. Everyone ought to consider the health benefits of a good detoxification program - especially for those suffering with chronic fatigue, weight gain and mood swings.
Are you low in energy? Let's be perfectly clear - this is not healthy. Poor sleep habits, toxic food and relationships will quickly drain the body of its energy reserves. If you suffer from headaches, bowel irregularities, or any chronic degenerative disease - you need to detoxify the body. This week - on the NaturalNews Talk Hour, a free weekly program - you'll learn how to regain your health and vitality naturally.
What is the definition of a 'good' detoxification program?
A healthy detoxification program needs to carefully help the body to mobilize, neutralize and remove accumulated waste - that has been stuck inside the body. Keep in mind, the quick removal of toxic debris is the key to a good detoxification program - especially if you want to avoid unwanted (negative) side effects. The efficient removal of toxins can't be overemphasized - especially if you're suffering from disease. And, of course, working with a well-trained, medical expert is a wise choice.
Typically, you'll want to make dietary and lifestyle changes designed to reduce your toxic burden, minimize stress to the digestive system and improve your elimination pathways such as, bowel movements, breathing, sweating and urination. To improve your results, try to avoid food chemicals, refined foods, processed sugar, caffeine, alcohol, tobacco and any pharmaceutical drugs - if possible.
If you're looking to increase your energy and rejuvenate the body - look into the benefits of juice fasting, raw (living) foods, herbs and nutritional supplements like rhodiola and vitamin C. And, of course, don't miss the next NaturalNews Talk Hour with Jonathan Landsman to improve your health.
Some of the best foods to eliminate unwanted toxins
Organic beets have a unique mixture of phytochemicals that help purify the blood and cleanse the liver. In fact, my favorite 'liver cleansing' smoothie includes, one beet, one apple, half a cucumber, the juice of two lemons, the juice of one lime and two tablespoons of olive oil. It's delicious!
Blueberries can help block toxins from crossing the blood-brain barrier into fatty tissues of the brain. Of course, cruciferous vegetables like cabbage, kale and broccoli can help to neutralize toxins by helping the liver to produce adequate amounts of enzymes for detoxification. Even carrots - which are loaded with beta-carotene - help the body to remove heavy metals.
In terms of nutritional supplements, be sure to consume an adequate amount of vitamin C, alpha lipoic acid and glutathione - to name just a few. Naturally, back to healthy food items, lemons, onions and sea vegetables, like wakame and arame, will bind to radioactive waste and heavy metals - helping to remove them safely from the body.
