First of all, there are many different ways to detox your body .. but there might be just a few which are really suitable for you! So always be aware of the signs and reactions your body shows after trying many different styles! But why should we do a detox in the first place? Is our body not able to do this all by itself? Yes it does mostly! But our world changed and so did our body and its needs.

So if you need a detox and how often, mainly depends on your lifestyle. How healthy do you really live? Do you try to cook by yourself? With healthy fresh ingredients? Do you invest into good oils? Do you drink lots of coffee? Do you regularly overindulge when it comes to sweets or wine? Do you smoke? Do you practice any kind of sports? Do you move enough? Do you give your mind some rest?

Without sounding like a hysterical health nerd, I love chocolate by the way and coffee and wine but next to all those factors which we are able to actually control, there are some we can´t.

Toxins are nowadays nearly hidden everywhere. In the food we eat, in the air we breathe, in the household cleaners we spray, the electronics we use.. and this list goes on and on. And to look within us, we produce our own toxins as well. Stress hormones, emotional disturbances, anxiety and negative emotions all the same toxic waste. Living toxic free is nearly impossible which is why our body has built some mechanisms to deal with such toxic overload. With crying, sweating, urination and emptying our intestine our body is able to get rid of the waste naturally. But there are some tips and tricks how we can all support and speed up our inner body functions.

Scrap your tongue! Sounds funny but it`s actually the most effective way to remove bacteria, food debris, fungi, toxins, and dead cells from the surface of your tongue.

When we sleep, our digestive system remains awake, removing toxins from our body by depositing them onto the surface of our tongue. If we don’t scrape away these toxins, they get reabsorbed by the body and can lead to respiratory difficulties, digestive problems, and a compromised immune system.

Use a neti pot. This little wonder lamp may look weird at the beginning.. but it actually can have a big impact on your health. Cleaning your nostrils regularly with this little pot, can help you a lot when you are suffering from chronic respiratory congestion, frequent colds and sinus problems. On the mental side it helps to balance your chakras.

There are tons of you tube videos out there how to use your neti pot correctly.

Hot lemon. Having a cup of hot lemon water is the perfect “good morning drink”. It aids the digestive system and makes the process of eliminating waste products easier. It prevents from constipation and diarrhea and even supports weight loss. It balances the pH level in the body and helps reducing inflammation in joints. On top lemons are pure vitamin C bombs which makes them to great immune boosters and helpers for rejuvenating the skin from within.

1 cup hot water, squeeze in half a lemon and add a pinch of cayenne pepper to speed up metabolism.

Spice it up! Cinnamon tastes not just yummy but also lowers blood sugar, fights bacteria, boosts memory and digestion.

Sprinkle some cinnamon on your fruits, in your müsli and on top of your coffee!

Apple vinegar cocktail. Apple vinegar works as a natural antibiotic which cures diarrhea and brings your intestine back into balance. It lowers cholesterol, helps to flush out toxins, increases metabolism and even calms sore throat. 

Sip a glas of water mixed with 1-2 tbsp of apple vinegar and drink it before a heavy meal.

Drink! Studies have shown that people who drink enough water are more resistant against sickness, have less problems with their digestive system and are skinnier!

Tea support. dandelion, artichoke, thistle, nettle.

Foot reflexology. Is maybe one of the best massage therapies to control your inner body functions. It sets free energy blockages, stimulates all! your organs, releases stress and pain, promotes digestion, improves blood circulation, boosts your immune system and many many more.

Keep breathing! Kapalabhati is one of the most powerful breathing techniques which improves not just the circulation, slows down the ageing process and helps relax your muscles and nerves. It also oxygenates your body while strengthening the muscles of your stomach and abdomen, improve the digestion and circulation and rejuvenates so tired cells. It is the best way to prepare yourself for meditation and to strengthen your third-eye chakra (seat of your intuition).

Do yoga!Twist! When you are in a twist you are compressing your whole digestive organs while placing them under weight which leads to a lack of circulation. When you release though, there will be a big rush of fresh blood streaming to your digestive tract which will in turn help to increase its function. This helps to clean your cells and gets rid of built up waste.

Dr. Schüssler mineral salt. Nr. 6 Kalium Sulfuricum, Nr. 8 Natrium Chloratum, Nr.9 Natrium Phosphoricum.

Take 3 – 6 times daily 1-3 tablets. Take each tablet individually and let it slowly dissolve in your mouth.

Bath & Liver Wrap! Enjoy a home spa once in a while. Take a bath with some sea salt and some drops of peppermint (stimulating) or lavender oil (calming).

Rest and have a liver pack afterwards.

Prepare a hot water bottle. Take a small towel, soak it in warm water and put it on your right ribcage underneath your right breast. The towel should be that long that it reaches also a good part from your back ribcage. Then wrap a longer towel around your whole chest and put the hot water bottle on top of the right side of your ribcage. If this feels to hot put a blanket in between. Cuddle on the coach for at least 20 min. together with a cup of liver tea and a good book 🙂

Brushing your teeth vs. cravings. Brushing your teeth tricks the brain into thinking something sweet has been ingested. So stave craving while having clean and healthy teeth!
