Apple Cider Vinegar Cleanse 


A natural remedy utilized for centuries, apple cider vinegar has proven antibacterial properties, and has shown extensive promise in fighting against cancerous cells.

Lemon Water


Simple enough, lemon water is a tried-and-true measure to take when looking to rid the body of toxins and impurities. Lemons are alkalizing, meaning they create alkaline on body fluids helping to restore balance to the body’s pH levels. They are also high in Vitamin C, which is crucial in boosting and maintaining a healthy immune system. Simply squeeze one whole lemon into a glass of hot or cold water and enjoy in the morning, to cleanse toxins from the day prior. 

Load Up Tea in the Afternoon


Herbs and teas found around the globe have profound natural effects on the body: such as ginger tea for digestion and stomach health, dandelion tea for hydration and digestion, and green tea as a metabolism booster. Reach for any of these, and other varieties of teas, to feel their effects and keep you from taking in bloat-inducing foods mid-afternoon.

Light Meals While Detoxing


If you’re focused on detoxing your body, starchy, carb-heavy, and sugary foods wont help. These types of foods add density to your body that can slow down the detoxing process and introduce new bacterias and properties that you’re trying to cut out. Instead, take a week to explore bountiful and vegetable rich soups that nourish and hydrate the body while clarifying out unwanted toxins with the help of choice herbs and spices. 

Sweat!


Sweat is a natural and free way to rid the body of toxins, utilizing the best innovations nature can offer. Our body sweats to cool its internal and external system when partaking in strenuous activities, but that sweat also pulls out a multitude of toxins and impurities living in our skin and cells. Get sweating today to reap the benefits of its clarifying properties and refuel with a rich meal and electrolytes when you’re all done.
