The easiest tips to detox your body and mind

The easiest tips to detox your body and mind
- Eat less refined processed foods which contain trans-fats, sugar and additives such as artificial colours.

- Eat more raw fruits and vegetables, whole grains, and vegetable protein like beans, lentils and quinoa. By eating organic you reduce your exposure to pesticides and unnatural ingredients.

- Drink at least 8 – 8 oz glasses of water a day. Water is essential to all the processes in the body.

- Some great dishes ideal for a detox diet might include: kale salad, beet salad, quinoa salad, spinach stew, or brown rice balls. Leafy and green vegetables like kale, spinach, and broccoli are jam packed with vitamins and nutrients to help restore vitality, and have even been shown to be effective at protecting you from certain cancers.

- Start each day with morning lemon drink. Just squeeze half a lemon into a glass, and fill with warm water. Warm lemon water stimulates your liver to detoxify your body - your skin will look better, you'll feel great, and you might even lose some weight!

If you want to try specific cleanse or detox program, you should consider what the best course is for you. Detoxing can cause some unexpected symptoms, like headaches, moodiness, or flu-like symptoms. It's a healing crisis – your body’s initial reaction to a change which should disappear in a few days. Detox your environment and lifestyle as well. Take more walks outside, spring clean your house with non-toxic cleaners, start a new hobby – all of these things will detox your mind and your body.
