Detoxification is more than a short-term, extreme elimination solution, true detoxification is a lifetime way of living in a world full of toxins.
Although there is little we can do to completely escape or eliminate toxins from our lives, there is a lot of we can do help lessen the impact.
Short-term detoxification is great, but establishing a long-term plan should be part of your solution. The primary resource we have is our food. What we put into our bodies makes the biggest difference in the battle for health.
Eating organic, natural and raw foods is perhaps the number one way to reset your bodies’ health. By maintaining a strong, healthy body, you’re bodies’ natural elimination system can function better, thereby removing more of the unnatural, and harmful toxins from your system.
Some of the most beneficial foods include leafy greens, such as kale, arugula, spinach, chard, alfalfa, to name a few. The natural chlorophyll these greens provide helps the body remove environmental toxins.
Kale is delicious in soups, salads and smoothies.
Fruits and vegetables that are high in vitamin C are vital in helping the body ward off, or destroy diseased cells. Research has shown vitamin C to be a natural antibody to cancer cells, and an antioxidant.
Dr. Linus Pauling recommends 1,000 mg. of vitamin C per day.
By establishing a long-term, healthy eating strategy, you’ll be creating a positive environment for your body to naturally detoxify itself on a daily basis. Check back for more information about how we can change our health through proper eating.
