How to Cleanse Your Body the Healthy Way

Ever heard of going on a cleansing diet? Usually when someone says they're going on a cleanse, it means trading their usual meals with a juice cleanse for a week or so. It's all meant to seasonally clear your body of toxins to help improve your overall health.  

But keep in mind: our body already naturally detoxifies itself. It's well-equipped to flush out most of the toxins that enter our system may it be via the food we eat or pollution we’re exposed to. Cleansing then isn't just completely cutting yourself off from junk food or sticking to a liquid diet. It's more of supporting our body's natural detoxification process by fueling our body with nutrient-rich and proper exercise on a long-term basis. 

If you've been planning to go on a cleanse yourself, check out our list of simple ways you can do just that in a healthier and natural way. Read on! 

1. Start with your water

Make it a habit to start your mornings with a tall glass of water with juice from half a lemon. The acids from your lemon water help your stomach break down food, which helps improve your overall digestion. This is particularly helpful as we get older since the amount of acid in our stomach declines with age. 

2. Cut down on your sugar

This one you've already probably heard of. Usually, it demands totally cutting off added sugars from your diet – all desserts, sweetened beverages and processed foods. But making such a drastic change in your diet could be too tough to commit to, especially if you're aiming for long-term results. 

The key is to set smaller goals. Try listing down everything you consume which has a lot of sugar (think: soda, powdered juice, cakes and sweets), and then scope the internet for a sugar-free substitution for each. Making subtle dietary changes this way makes it easier for you to start the foundation for a healthier diet and lifestyle. 

3. Get physical

Sweating it out with regular exercise helps enhance your digestion, regulate your stress and energy levels, lubricate your joints and overall strengthen your immune system. Try scheduling at least 30 minutes of exercise into your daily routine – it can be a sport you like or a simple no-equipment exercise you can do at home. 

4. Exfoliate

Yes, cleansing your body can also mean a good session of top-to-toe exfoliation! Exfoliating helps flush out deep-seated toxins from your skin and helps refresh your blood circulation. Plus, it gives your skin that healthy natural glow!
