How To Do Detox

  1. 1
    To start off the best and foremost detox method is drinking water
    Water not only cleans the system of toxins it helps maintain osmotic balance and pushes out impurities in the form of urine. It cleanses the system from the inside making it cleaner and fresher. The main toxin is blood urea nitrogen that is flushed out via the kidneys with the help of water. Lemon water, orange or lime juice helps in cutting down fat. Adding flavor to the water makes it easier to drink 8 cups a day.

    A fruit week detox is helpful as fruits are not only healthy and nutritious but provide the body with a fresher and better healthier choice of food
    Eating only fruit for a week will not only detoxify the body but doesn't let you starve. It may also help reduce the likelihood of stroke and can be carried out by eating a variety of fruits or one fruit only.

    Detox can also be achieved by eating organically grown produce and meat that has no signs of genetic modification or added chemicals to sustain better growth
