A detox plan ought to include a complete avoidance of any drinks that contain alcohol, caffeine and other such stimulants. That’s because all those drinks have, to varying degrees, substances within them that we class as toxins. That word is banded around a lot these days in health circles and it basically means something poisonous that’s produced by a living cell or organism. The degrees or severity of toxicity may also vary widely.
To anyone on a detox plan that might seem a boring fact but, by being on one it’s meant to help your body concentrate on the job in hand, that of ridding you of all those toxins. Ordinarily your body is already well equipped with the means to expel toxins through such internal organs as the liver and kidneys. There’s no denying that it does a fairly good job of that, but why not give it a periodic boost.
The end result of a detox plan is supposed to be worth it, in terms of the way you feel and look even. Having had experience of one recently I noticed that I had more energy during the day and my skin looked clearer. I was pleasantly surprised when friends and family made complimentary remarks, who previously had never commented on my appearance.
The advice to drink water when detoxifying yourself is based on a lot of common sense. It’s a liquid in which some substances are easily dissolved, and in this case many of the toxins we are aiming to expel are soluble. So, drinking at least the recommended eight glasses a day is undoubtedly going to help in the elimination process.
But to expand a bit more on that last point, what is also going to help when on a detox plan is in making sure that the water you drink is as pure as possible. That’s because there have been too many scare stories in the press and news about various, unwelcome contaminants in our domestic supplies.
Let’s face it, why go to all that trouble of detoxification when you are introducing more toxins into your body when drinking unfiltered water!
