Cleansing and Detoxing

Tags: ,

Fall is a particularly good time to pay attention to cleansing the body. People have cleansed throughout the ages to remove buildup of toxins and impurities in the system which constantly drain our immune systems. There are countless ways to cleanse, but here is just a sampling of ideas to consider:

Digestive Cleansing
This is one of the ways to rid the body of the accumulated junk in your digestive track. Digestive cleanses may involve fasting, wheatgrass juice, or juicing, cayenne pepper, enemas and colonics. Each of these is intended to assist the body in the process of elimination. Often the results of digestive cleansing include feeling more clear-headed, lighter, more aware, less fatigued, and energized.

Tongue Cleaning
Ever notice that slimy white film on your tongue? That’s the mouth’s elimination system and one of the causes of bad breath (the rest of it is coming from your digestive system). A tongue scraper can be used to scrape off coated tongues first thing in the morning.

Detox Bath
Use a combination of epsom salt, sea salt and baking soda to help pull out toxins from the skin. This one can be especially beneficial to ease emotional imbalances.

Skin Brushing / Dry Brush
Brushing your skin with a dry body brush is one of the best ways to clean your skin. It may feel kind of odd but it is more effective than brushing your skin with a wet soapy brush or sponge.

Water Flush
Most of us know that it’s important to stay hydrated and drink lots of water. Practice of drinking 2 litres of warm water first thing in the morning to flush your system.
