I want to cleanse the body

Each of us sooner or later asks the question – is it necessary to make special efforts to cleanse our body? Environmental pollution, the abundance of additives in food, unpleasant statistics of dangerous diseases and other factors make us understand this topic.

In principle, the human body, as a complex self-regulating system, is able to independently clean itself of toxins. It is for these purposes that we have the lymphatic system, liver, kidneys, intestines and skin, which throw away everything that can harm the body. But the natural forces of the body are not always able to cope with this task – either in connection with the above factors, or simply because of age. Cleaning systems are overloaded, organs become clogged and cease to function normally. As a result, there are constant headaches, an earthy complexion, digestive problems, it is not clear where the allergy came from and other troubles. Slagging can cause more serious problems, which become more severe as the body becomes contaminated, including pathological changes in cells and the formation of tumors.

Therefore, it makes sense to periodically cleanse your body of “biological debris”, helping it to maintain the ability to self-repair. In this case, cleansing, as a rule, is accompanied by weight loss, and excess fat is also unnecessary slag to the body.

Of course, the most powerful way to cleanse is therapeutic fasting, but it should be carried out only in a clinic under the supervision of a doctor and, as a rule, it is used by people who are desperate to recover from serious diseases using traditional medicine methods. Radical cleansing methods also include cleaning the intestines with sulfate solutions (usually performed before surgery), the so-called cleansing the liver with vegetable oil with lemon, cleansing the intestines with enemas or hydrocolonotherapy. But these methods are either difficult or very controversial, in addition, they can disrupt the intestinal microflora. But in ordinary life, you can apply not so radical methods of cleansing, which, along with regular physical activity and a healthy diet, can become the key to maintaining your body in perfect condition for many years.

Before describing several methods of gentle cleansing, it is necessary to dwell on some very important general recommendations.

General recommendations for cleansing the body:

During body cleansing, you need to increase the amount of water used, because only water helps to eliminate toxins from the body.
Nutrition with any form of cleansing should remain complete, not impoverishing the body.
The most important rule not only during the period of purification, but also in everyday life should be the absence of constipation, because it is in the intestine that the whole body begins to slag. Use any means to fix this problem, if any.
Any cleansing should be carried out no more than twice a year, best in spring and autumn.
To achieve maximum effect during a course on cleansing the body, sign up for a massage, be sure to do morning exercises, and generally try to lead a more mobile lifestyle.
It is better to prepare for body cleansing in advance. About a month before this, it is better to exclude fatty, fried, very salty, spicy and other especially unhealthy foods from the diet. For two weeks, it is advisable to abandon meat and animal fats. Ideal to switch to plant foods and dairy products.
Cleaning is recommended to begin (and ideally end) with a one-day fasting with plenty of fluids or a fasting day on raw fruits and vegetables, kefir or cottage cheese.
Choose the most comfortable cleansing methods. Remember that any procedures that require a person to give up their usual lifestyle are stressful.
Before you start cleansing, be sure to consult your doctor, especially if you have any chronic diseases. It is important to exclude possible contraindications. For example, intensive cleaning is contraindicated in pregnant and lactating women.
Soft ways to cleanse the body:

As a rule, mild cleansing methods involve the use of various liquids according to a certain scheme – decoctions and infusions (oats, herbs, rose hips, etc.), freshly squeezed juices, thawed or mineral water, etc., as well as single products – rice, buckwheat, olives et al. Here are some of them:

1. Cleansing with a decoction of oats

Decoction of oats removes heavy metals, frees the body from toxins, including nicotine, regulates the activity of the gastrointestinal tract, and also positively affects renal and cardiac activity. In addition, a decoction of oats is also an incredibly healthy vitamin drink. To prepare the broth, you need to take 200 g of oats (only not oatmeal), pour 2 liters of water, bring to a boil and cook for 40 minutes with stirring. Then the broth should be filtered and taken for several days in a glass of 4-5 times a day.

2. Cleansing with infusion of herbs (herbal preparations are great)

Our health and life expectancy largely depend on the quality of food. It is difficult to overestimate its significance for humans. A balanced rational diet, including proteins, fats, carbohydrates, fiber,…
