Why this simple natural detox drink recipe actually works

Detoxing is an important part achieving optimal health.

If you are having health issues then detox is very important.

It can also help to jump start a clean real food diet for weight loss.

It’s a good idea to do a slow gentle detox,especially if you have a health condition.

This simple and natural detox drink is a perfect addition to your detox plan along with whole, clean, organic foods.

How Does Detox Work?

Detox is the process of removing toxins from your body or helping your body and its systems to more easily remove the toxins.

We are exposed to toxins everyday in our environment, the food we eat( especially if it’s not organic).

The air and chemical products we use in our homes and on our bodies are often very toxic.  

It’s impossible to avoid them but we can help our body to eliminate them in a more efficient manner.

Our liver/blood as well as the kidney and lymphatic systems are the primary detoxers but the skin, intestines and lungs also help us to detox.  

Consuming foods that cleanse the blood, stimulate the liver and kidneys and unblock the lymph, lungs and skin are the key to a healthy detox.

Exercise is the best lymph and lung and skin stimulator so along with this detox drink make sure you are moving everyday.

What is the best daily detox drink?

The best detox drink will include some of these ingredients-

Lemon stimulates the liver and gall bladder

Apple Cider Vinegar helps digestion and moves things along faster.

Honey Manuka honey is the best honey for healing but raw organic honey will also work well. Honey is antibacterial and can help stimulate your liver.

Watermelon  is great for kidney function because it contains citrulline, which is an amino acid that stimulates the kidneys and liver to eliminate ammonia.

Cilantro  Is great because it binds to heavy metals in the blood and cleanses them from the body.

Dandelion is the best liver and gall bladder stimulator.
