(NaturalNews) It's spring and people are ready to rejuvenate, and with this often comes the plans of a detox. Although spring is a good time to consider this important practice, many people go at it with reckless abandon that compromises their results. So before you go on a 21-day juice fast, consider these important activities to get the most out of your detox.

Support your liver

Your liver is your largest internal organ, and is responsible for filtering our blood of toxins and removing any that do get into our bloodstream. When its function is compromised we accumulate toxins more quickly due to its inability to manage and dispatch toxins out of the body appropriately.

Therefore, it makes sense to specifically stimulate and detoxify this organ during a detox so it can properly handle its humble but vitally important job of removing toxins from our body. Key foods and herbs that stimulate liver function include:

• Herbs like milk thistle, dandelion, burdock root, artichoke, and turmeric
• Foods like garlic, grapefruit, avocado, walnuts, and green vegetables
• Fermented foods like sauerkraut and kefir

Support your kidneys

Even though the kidneys are relatively small, they actually process about 20 percent of our blood to filter out waste and extra water. The processed blood returns to the body and the eliminated waste is stored in the bladder until it is excreted from the body through the urethra.

When you decide to detox you increase the amount of waste products to remove, and if your kidneys are not up to the challenge, you could create other problems such as bladder and kidney infections.

Key foods and herbs that will ensure proper kidney support include:

• Herbs like uva ursi, corn silk, juniper berries, golden rod, and horsetail
• Unsweetened cranberry juice
• Apple cider vinegar
• Magnesium

Promote bowel movements

Frequent bowel movements are crucial to a proper detoxification process. Failure to move them properly allows toxins to reabsorb into your intestinal wall, which then makes it into your bloodstream and consequently other areas of your body.

As a result, you need to ensure you are properly moving your bowels through a variety of foods, herbs, and nutrients that stimulate and lubricate the digestive system, including:

• Plenty of fresh spring or filtered water
• Variety of leafy greens and fresh produce
• Aloe vera, garlic, ginger, fennel, broccoli, cauliflower, cabbage, and kefir
• Bentonite clay, activated charcoal, or diatomaceous earth for toxin binding and removal
• Magnesium
• Vitamin C

Open up your pores

Your largest detoxification organ is your skin. If you find that it is dry, irritated, or blemished, it is a strong signal that toxins are being forced out due to overloads in your other primary detoxifiers like your liver and kidneys.

Opening your pores creates another gateway for toxins to leave your body. There are a few ways to do this, including:

• Dry brushing
• Exercise
• Infrared sauna
• Hot baths (add magnesium and essential oils for better results)

Encourage lymphatic flow

Your lymphatic system performs the important function of cleansing the fluid that surrounds your cells in your body by removing impurities and waste products. This not only helps protect your body from toxins, but it also allows your cells to perform their best.

Your lymph system doesn't have a natural pump, so it requires movement in order to stimulate it and keep it from becoming stagnant. Some of your best options to do this include:

• Rebounding
• Massage
• Acupuncture
• Exercise
• Dry brushing

Now go ahead and do your detox more efficiently.
