When we talk about toxins in the body, most people first identify the chemicals and contaminants they have been taught are harmful. These can include things like cigarette smoke, pollution and other environmental toxins. But the substances that can create toxic buildups within the body go far beyond these dangerous pollutants.
Did you know that even the water you drink can deposit toxins in the body? As our health experts covered in one of our Hallelujah Diet video blogs, processed food, undigested fats and impure water can create a toxic buildup within the body over the course of several years. This inner pollution can become harmful to your body's lymphatic system, blood and nervous system. Reducing the buildup of toxins in the lungs, heart and vascular system and removing waste is the equivalent to washing your face or combing your hair each day. Taking care of what's on the inside is just as important as practicing hygiene for what's on the outside.
To keep your health in check and your body systems operating properly, make it a habit to remove toxins regularly. Consider the following:
While detoxifying the body of harmful waste is important, increasing your nutritional intake is just as critical. This is best accomplished by following a primarily raw, plant-based diet such as the Hallelujah Diet. Rich in wholesome, raw vegetables and some fruits, supplements and vitamins, a diet based on Genesis 1:29 can help you consume and retain the nutrients vital to energizing, nourishing, strengthening and healing.
"Replenishing the body with nutrients is a key part of removing toxins."
Most individuals, when first starting off on this diet, will be low in folate, potassium, magnesium, vitamin C, vitamin K, chromium and iodine. Consuming the raw plants of the earth is the most effective way to get these nutrients back. Flushing out the poison is more effective when your body is getting all of the vital minerals and vitamins it requires.
According to Mind Body Green, regulating your digestive system is one of the most effective ways that you can promote your body's detoxifying process. Moreover, healthy and regular bowel movements – between two and three times per day – are important for the overall health of your body. If you have trouble managing, supplemental magnesium has been shown to improve regulation. In fact, Hallelujah Diet has an entire selection of digestive products and supplements that may be beneficial for you.
Can you remember the last time you were sweating excessively from a workout or physical activity? If so, that's great because that means you were simultaneously ridding the body of toxins through the skin. Not only were you getting your regular exercise, but detoxifying the body as well. Sweating is one best ways to eliminate the toxic buildup of contaminants in the body, the Global Healing Center reported.
Best of all, exercising is something you may already be doing anyway, making it a win-win.
Focus on Fiber
As Natural Health 365 explained, dietary fiber is the No. 1 tool used by the body for removing toxins and heavy metals effectively and naturally. Proper detoxification is done with healthy amounts of fiber, which most people on the Standard American Diet fail to acquire. Natural options for upping your fiber intake include beans, ground flax seeds and lentils.
At Hallelujah Diet, we offer a number of different fiber cleanse products, all created with 28 intentional herbs that remove toxins and cleanse the colon. Through this process, optimal bowel function is restored. Together with the Hallelujah Diet, a fiber cleanse can eliminate harmful toxins in the body while replenishing essential nutrients to help you feel your best.
