How To Detox Your Body – Part 2

2009 December 13

With the right detox diet, you can get rid of all of those toxins and start fresh, feeling rejuvenated and more energized than you have in many years. However, you should be careful to note that cleansing needs to consist of a product like Acidophilus, which promotes the growth of good bacteria in the digestive system. If you gut your intestines with a complete detox program, you need to get those good bacteria back just as quickly as they left, because they need to be there.

There are many things that you need to think about when it comes to a detox diet and how to detox your body, including whether you prefer the supplement products like natural cleansers or if you want to do a raw diet for 10 days (fruits and vegetables galore). You also need to make sure that you drink plenty of water during this process because all of the detoxifying can dehydrate your body if you don’t.

Detox diets however, need not be complicated. While there are tons of products on the market that claim to be colon cleansers or that they will detox your system, sometimes all you really need to do is change your diet significantly and you will get all the benefits of detox. When my wife and I started eating a completely raw diet, that was all we needed to do and both our systems started to detox at the same time. While this may not happen to you, when we detoxed we felt kind of sick for a few days and had runny noses, slight weakness and just a general feeling of laziness. For many people this is typical and you will read about this in many raw food books and magazines, however, you may not experience this at all.

In any case, if you are unsure of what to do or fell at all uneasy about doing a food detox diet, take the time to talk to your doctor or a health care professional such as a chiropractor before you do this, to determine if a detoxification program is a good choice for you.
