Detoxification 〰️ The science of how your body gets rid of waste & toxins
Our bodies do this every day. But our bodies can become overburdened by our modern and industrialized world and way of life.
The Environment Working Group (EWG) found an average of 91 toxic chemicals in the blood and urine of adults. ⚠️ In another small study they found that newborns had an average of 200+chemicals in their umbilical cord blood 😩. We know that many of these toxins have a direct link to various issues and diseases but there is a lot we still don’t know and most chemicals haven’t been fully assessed for safety. Research and regulation changes take time.
Scary stuff right?! 🙅♀️ Fortunately, there are things that we can do to lower our toxic burden and improve our body’s ability to naturally detoxify.
I’m not a fan of long juice cleanses, fad detoxes & starvation. Your body needs specific nutrients and protein to detoxify properly! 🥦🍖🥑
Tips to support natural detoxification:
✔️ Reduce exposure to toxins (found in cosmetics, products, certain foods, & more)
✔️ Adopt a cleaner lifestyle
✔️ Hydrate! 💧
✔️ Eat a cleaner diet that is rich in nutrients to support detoxification
✔️ Get your gut in good shape
✔️ Improve your body’s ability to detox by supporting cellular repair, liver function, sweating, and digestive function
✔️ Poop every day 💩
✔️ Get moving!
✔️ Rest & relax ~ Work on your nervous system, mindset and perspective
Cleaning up our diet and lifestyle can not only be beneficial for our bodies, but also for our environment and future generations 🌎
