The Ultimate Guide To Detoxing

October 25, 2019

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to undergo a detox, you might have images of feeling weak and nearly fainting if you are committing to a three day fast of nothing but warm water, apples and nutmeg. This isn’t a detox, but rather a way of making yourself ill. Detoxification is a process that needs to be done carefully. Done right, and you will emerge from your detox feeling refreshed, more content and feeling more positive about what your future holds. Done poorly, and you’ll be reaching for the nearest hamburger. Detoxing doesn’t have to be food related, although it often is. Take a look at this ultimate guide to detoxing.
Food
You don’t necessarily need to be overweight to undergo a detox. Those people who eat too much sugar, have way too much fat in their diet, or generally never see a vegetable pass their lips may need to have a look at detoxing. By removing certain trigger foods out of your diet, you can shift a few pounds, but you are also giving your body the opportunity to remove toxins. Hydration is key to any detox. You need to increase your fluid intake to prevent feeling weak or having headaches. Cutting out sugar or carbs can take a while for your body to adjust to. Reintroducing these food groups slowly is also crucial to ensure a more healthy detox. There are plenty of charlatans out there telling you that cabbage soup or beetroot water will cure skin ailments or insomnia. Ignore them, and do a detox to cleanse and rejuvenate.
Lifestyle
Many of us have vices, but that doesn’t mean we need to live with them. If you have struggled with alcohol or drugs in the past, head to a substance abuse treatment center to touch base and talk about any issues you might be having. If smoking is your enemy, consider quitting and replacing the nicotine with another healthier pastime like chewing gum or heading outside for walks in the fresh air. If you are more addicted to shopping and you find yourself buying clothes to get your thrills even though you can’t afford them, it’s time to sit down with a debt solution manager and try to clear some of your store cards and credit cards. Detoxing parts of your life is an easy way to feel lighter and brighter.
Social Media
In the twenty first century, most people have at least one social media account, whether this is Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. The fake imagery and supposedly aspirational lifestyles projected from these platforms are so heavily filtered that they are impossible to attain. This means that young people become stressed and anxious because their self confidence takes a hit. If you can relate to this, it’s time to go social media cold turkey. Forget about heading online to scroll mindlessly through your Facebook feed and watch your favorite box set instead or head to the movies with pals. Get back to real life and enjoy the great outdoors or speaking with pals over a telephone line!

Detoxing can be good for the soul. Use this guide and do it the right and healthy way.
