One simple way to remove contaminants every day is drinking purified Berkey water. It's one of the easiest way to introduce a detoxifying routine into your life. Ready to rid your body of toxins? Whatever your level of comfort is, there is a spectrum of strategies you can do to detoxify. Cleansing the body should be done with caution. Make sure to do plenty of research beforehand.
Detoxing can results in a few different desired outcomes. Sometimes it can be increased energy levels, weight-loss, improved hair texture, better skin, enhanced sleep, or bowel movement. A cleanse can be a great way to kickstart healthy living or achieving certain goals.
The digestive tract, made up of the liver and kidneys, and skin are the body's natural way of detoxifying. These organs and systems break down toxins and rid the body of them through urine, feces and sweat. The human body is amazing and can usually handle environmental toxins. However, it never hurts to give the body a little extra help by cutting out the heavy foods and drinks so that the digestive system doesn't have to work as hard.
One train of thought is a detox, a cleanse for the inside. Showers and baths clean externally, detoxes clean internally. Berkey Filters has products for both! check out our most popular model, the Big Berkey, for cleansing the water for your insides and Shower Filters for cleansing your skin and hair.
How to Detox?
Most detox diets recommend removing processed foods with solid fats and sugar added. Another key component is drinking a lot of liquids like lemon water and juices. On one end of the scale, a detox diet includes fasting and only water and pressed fruit and vegetable juices. On the other end of the spectrum, the detox can be lenient, only restricting food that is sugary and high in bad fats. Detoxes should be short and only lasts a few days.
Nutrient absorption is improved when fiber from fruits and vegetables is consumed. The probiotics found in those foods also help with digestion by boosting immunity and keeping appropriate levels of beneficial bacteria in the gut.
Since most tap water comes from municipalities or wells, there can still be harmful contaminants in it, even after being "cleaned." It doesn't make a lot of sense to do a full body cleanse if the water isn't free of toxins itself. Berkey water is better water. Don't derail an entire detox regime with detrimental H20.
Purified water ensures that what goes in is actually going to contribute to detoxifying. Berkey Water Filter Systems remove over two-hundred contaminants. The black filters do such a good job at keeping toxins out they are considered water purifiers, a higher classification above water filters. The best water to use for a detox is Berkey water. Drinking water from a Berkey is also an easy way to incorporate detox principles into everyday life.
Another way to rid the body of toxins that build up is by sweating it out. Getting a good exercise session in or sitting in a sauna is a great way to expel toxins through the dermal. Movement has been proven to have enormous health benefits. To maximize movement or exercise it is important to hydrate properly. Adults should drink about half their weight in ounces every day. Water is essential in flushing out built up toxins.
