Drink More Water
Drinking more water is the number one way you can clean out your body and get rid of toxins while doing so. The more water you drink, the more you will excrete it through sweat and urine— leaving your body cleaner and healthier than before. As a suggestion, try carrying around a water bottle with you wherever you go. Remember that you should be drinking at least eight 8-ounce glasses of water a day.
Stop Drinking Alcohol
If you are a regular drinker, this tip is going to be especially difficult to accomplish. However, alcohol can do damage to central organs like your liver. To help cleanse your liver and get it functioning properly, stop drinking alcohol altogether.
Eat More Vegetables
When was the last time you ate a vegetable that wasn’t covered in butter or salad dressing? To help clean out your body and get rid of toxins, consider loading up your plate full of vegetables. Filled with vitamins and minerals that your body needs for fuel, eating a diet rich in vegetables will make you feel like a new person. If you fill up on vegetables, you won’t have as strong of a desire to eat things like cookies, candy, and chips.
Detoxing your body doesn’t have to involve crazy things like cayenne pepper and lemon water. By simply drinking more water, stopping alcohol use, and eating more vegetables, you can cleanse your body and restore it.
