**How else we can help our bodies in detoxing**
Diet is just one component of any well-designed cleanse. In addition with an eating plan, there are other important steps:
1) Enhance Circulation: A lack of physical activity can result in poor circulation of blood and lymph fluid, which can have a negative effect on health and impair detoxification and immune function. The best way to get blood flowing is to exercise. Contrast showers anddry skin brushing are also great because they can be integrated into your regular shower.
2) Promote Elimination: When toxins that are stored in our cells are mobilized, they travel to our blood and must be eliminated from the body through feces, urine, or sweat or they can be reabsorbed and recirculated in our systems. Sometimes our organs of elimination are sluggish because we don’t move (and therefore don’t sweat), are constipation, or don’t drink enough water. Ways to increase elimination include: foods that prevent constipation, herbal laxatives such as senna tea or cascara, increased fluid intake, colonics, or enemas.
3) Improve Digestion: Promote the growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines, so that it can keep potentially harmful bacteria in check, otherwise “bad” bacteria can produce toxins that damage the intestinal lining, are absorbed into the bloodstream, and injure cell membranes in the body. The cleanse can often provide the nutrients needed to promote the growth of beneficial bacteria. Probiotics can also be supplemented.
Most detox diets call for the removal of foods people are often sensitive to, such as wheat and gluten. A properly chosen diet supports the liver by providing it with protein, antioxidants, vitamin, and other nutrients so that it can detoxify efficiently. Supplements can also be taken, such as protein powder and vitamins, antioxidants, herbs for the liver, or detox teas.
4) Mind/Body Wellness: Stress can impair the body’s detoxification systems and lead to digestive ailments, impaired immunity, and have wide-ranging effects on health. A detox diet is a time not just to let the body heal, but to allow the mind to rest. Try to incorporate mind/body practices into your detox, such as diaphragmatic breathing, progressive muscle relaxation, ormindfulness meditation.

Why not incorporate more of these healing foods into our diets. By juicing or making smoothies will only make it easier to do so. Give these foods a try and eliminate the processed & fast foods we seemed to be stuck on that only create toxic build up, which is what we need to get rid of.
