A detox can be the perfect way to kick off a new healthy lifestyle, encouraging you to break old habits and reset your mindset to mark a fresh start.

Detoxing is all about getting rid of toxins from your body – if you’re drinking too much alcohol or consuming too many unhealthy foods, you’re more likely to have a high amount of potentially harmful toxins in your body.

Cleansing yourself of these toxins can be good for you both physically and mentally, helping you to become much more mindful of what you’re eating.

Why Detox Your Body?

After a period of over-indulgence, whether it’s a holiday, celebration, or simply a change in your usual routine, you can be left feeling sluggish and bloated. These feelings can be the result of too many toxins in your system. However, detoxing can help to remedy this and kickstart your metabolism.

Embarking on a detox can help if you have an imbalance within your digestive tract that’s causing reflux, heart burn, or bloating. The quicker you remove the toxins, the quicker your metabolism will be reawakened, leaving you with significantly more energy.

Ultimately, a detox is designed to leave you feeling healthy and renewed, and that’s exactly what our guide will help you to achieve.

How to Detox Your Body at Home

A few ways you can support your body during a detox at home include:

  • Drink hot water prepared with fresh lemon juice or slices instead of tea or coffee
  • Drink green tea
  • Drink plenty of water to keep yourself well hydrated
  • Reduce your consumption of refined sugar and other processed foods
  • Support your digestion with microbiome supplements

Cleanse Enhancing Diet

This should comprise 20% protein-rich or acid-forming foods, such as wild-caught fish, whole grains, legumes and grass-fed beef; the remaining 80% of your diet should consist of starchy, alkaline-forming foods and ‘neutral’, bulk-forming foods.

Recommended alkaline-forming foods include almonds, quinoa, brown rice and buckwheat, while some of the bulk-forming foods that can help to enhance your diet are organic onions, ginger, garlic and chives.
