Once you’ve improved your diet by incorporating as many of the above cleansing foods as possible, consider some other ways to cleanse.
Take a Cleansing Bath
A 20 to 30 minute bath can do wonders. To warm water, add 1 cup of Epsom salt and 1 cup aluminum free baking soda. The combination of the warm water, Epsom salt and baking soda draws out toxins. Our skin is responsible for about 10 percent of toxin elimination.
Avoid GMO Foods
The harmful effects of genetically modified (GMO) food are becoming known far and wide. GMO foods are largely untested and have many potential side effects for your body. A good cleansing tip is to avoid any foods containing corn or soy, as these are nearly always GMO.
Take A Deep Breath
Oxygenate your cells and enable your system to remove waste products with deep breathing. Deep breathing can also reduce stress and help with the symptoms of depression. Start by spending 2 to 3 minutes deep breathing each day and you will immediately notice a difference. Learn more: Proper Powerful Breathing.
Avoid Processed Foods
