SKIN: Choose herbal deodorants (if needed) instead of anti-perspirants. which inhibit sweating and therefore prevents toxins leaving the body through the skin.
LUNGS: Deep breathing exercises daily and aerobic exercise (walking, running, biking) 3-5 times/ week
LIVER: Limit alchohol, caffeine, nicotine, dyes and preservatives. Eat beets, and artichokes as they nourish the liver.
BOWEL/COLON: Limit processed foods and eat plenty of raw fruits, vegetables and salads as well as other natural high fibre grains like quinoa and brown rice.
KIDNEYS: Drink 1-2L of filtered water daily.
LYMPHATIC SYSTEM: Dry skin brushing before bathing, deep breathing exercises (moving the diaphragm) and regular massage therapy all stimulate circulation and lymphatic drainage.
STRESS MANAGEMENT: Prayer, meditation, mindfulness, breathing exercises, talking with trusted friends and simply taking "quiet time" can help reduce stress and emotional toxicity.
