Why Should We Cleanse & Detox Our Body?

Updated: Feb 10, 2022

Everyone deserves to know the truth of how to cleanse their bodies and what foods they should eat to detox their bodies.


Here is the real truth.

How often do you ask yourself a question about whether you are healthy enough? There are lots of foods on the shelf that contain artificial chemicals like preservatives, colours, flavours, etc., and these are the elements that your body does not need. These elements could cause an unhealthy buildup of toxins in your body, which can gradually induce chronic disease from within, including joint pain, muscle fatigue, inflammation, headaches, insomnia, high blood pressure, diabetes, high LDL in the blood, and more. These unwanted toxins can be found anywhere, including in the food you consume each day as well as in elements from the environment. Pollutants are one of the main environmental toxins that your body is exposed to each day that are harsh and harmful. Once you inhale or absorb these pollutants, they will stay in your body. Your body relies heavily on organs like the liver, kidneys, lungs, skin, and lymphatic system to eliminate these trapped toxins to keep you up and running each day, so it is important to make sure they are all happy, healthy, and in working order.


It is your responsibility to look after your body by enhancing your body’s natural detoxification system.


Tip #1 - Eat Antioxidant-Rich Foods


Antioxidants are vital to your body. It is a chemical substance that can prevent or slow damage to cells caused by free radicals, unstable molecules that the body produces as a reaction to environmental pressure or impacts from other sources. Your body will produce these molecules naturally for cellular processes such as osmosis, energy production, cell diffusion, cell transport, aerobic or anaerobic respiration, etc., and these molecules can be produced to an excessive level if you have an unhealthy diet or poor living habits like being addicted to alcohol, tobacco smoking, junk food diet, UV exposure, environmental pollutants, or poor quality of sleep. When your body produces excessive free radicals, the chance of having damaging cells in your body will be relatively increased and can be implicated in a number of serious conditions, causing heart disease, asthma, cancer, and so on.

Eating a diet that is rich in antioxidants can help your body prevent damage to cells and also fight against oxidative stress caused by free radicals and other unwanted sources of toxins so that you can lower your risk of disease. So, antioxidants are essential to help neutralise free radicals in your body as well as boost vitality and overall wellness.


Tip #2 - Reduce Your Intake of Sugar and Processed Foods


Sugar and processed foods are the main causes of public health crises. Have you ever considered the health implications of eating too much or too frequently? High consumption of sugary and highly processed foods could cause a higher chance of getting diabetes, obesity, and other chronic diseases. These diseases could slow down the recovery rate of your body and decrease the detoxification process from within, as they tend to damage your organs like the liver and kidneys. So, excess junk food consumption can cause harm to organs that is important to detoxifying.

Want to be better? You can reduce or limit the amount of sugary foods or junk food by leaving them on the store shelf and not putting them in your kitchen, which could take away the temptation when you do not see them. Or, try to replace junk food with healthier choices like plant-based or natural wholefood products as a healthy way to reduce consumption.

Tip #3 - Drink More Water


Water is one of the most important elements that all living organisms on the Earth must have, including humans. About 60–65% of the human adult body is water, so what happens if you run out of water? The answer is pretty obvious. You must ensure your body is sufficiently replenished and fuelled every day so that your brain can function properly at its optimal level. Water also acts as a regulator to help maintain your body temperature, lubricates joints, aids digestion, assists nutrient absorption, detoxifies your body by removing waste products, repairs body cells and breaks down nutrients to give you the amount of energy you need at every moment.

Water acts quickly and efficiently during the detoxification process because it helps remove waste products from your body through breathing, urination, and sweating. The recommended daily water intake for men is 3.5–4 litres and 2.5–3 litres for women. You may need more or less depending on your diet and your activity level, but you must ensure you have enough water in your detoxification system to remove waste products from your blood to stay healthy.


Tip #4 - Having Lemongrass Beverages as Part of Your Diet


Lemongrass not only gives you soothing effects, but also offers amazing health benefits. It is a great source of antioxidants as well as rich in vitamins and minerals. With its unique antimicrobial properties, it can help lower inflammation in the body. Lemongrass is prescribed to help tackle digestive issues, ease nausea, constipation, bloating, and enhance the stomach to keep the digestive system on track. As lemongrass is rich in potassium, it helps to increase the production of urine in the body, which could lower blood pressure and boost blood circulation.

As lemongrass is a herbal formula, people tend to smell it immediately to reduce stress and anxiety, which explains why there are lots of essence oils on the market made from lemongrass blend. Another feature of lemongrass is that it is rich in flavonoids. A flavonoid is known for having antioxidants and anti-inflammatory benefits that protect heart health as well as manage high cholesterol issues. Therefore, having lemongrass as part of your diet can act as an additional protection layer for your health.


Tip #5 - Having The Right Choice For Natural Detoxification


You Are What You Eat! So you have to know what foods you are eating. There are some green foods that can detox your body naturally, including asparagus, broccoli, grapefruit, avocado, kale, artichokes, collard greens, beets, spinach, and others. Some of these health foods could lower your risk of getting cancer and provide energy for biotransformation processes in order to assist the entire detoxification process through excretion and elimination. A healthy diet usually consists of a diet that contains plenty of nutrient-dense, lower-sugar, high-fibre, and plant-based foods along with excellent sources of nutrients and healthy dietary fat.

So, it is essential to have a healthy diet regularly as it tends to contain a high level of nutrients with various vitamins, minerals, and enzymes to break down the fat in your body to help promote weight loss and help your body expel harmful toxins.


Remember Toxins May Be Stopping You From Keeping Fit


Detoxification starts in your liver! While it’s a complicated process, your liver essentially does this in two phases, and then your kidneys, lungs, and even gut play a different role in detoxification. Toxins can impact these organs both acutely and cumulatively. More dangerous are the persistent, low-grade toxins such as residue you consume regularly on conventionally grown fruits and vegetables and processed foods that contain high levels of artificial chemicals. Remember, reactions are not immediate, and therefore, you might not see the connection significantly between chronic low-grade toxicity and your struggle with keeping your body fit.
