Want to Detox? Simple Tips, Part 2
Published: 02/03/2013

Yesterday’s Daily Tip covered ways to minimize your exposure to harmful toxins that can accumulate in your body. Today we go over some ways to eliminate toxins that may have accumulated. To reduce your body’s toxic load:

  • Drink plenty of pure water.
  • Have regular bowel movements – eating a diet with plenty of whole grains and fresh, organic fruits and vegetables can promote healthy digestion.
  • Breathe clean air deeply.
  • Sweat – a sauna, steam bath or vigorous exercise can help promote sweating.
  • Try milk thistle (Silybum marianum). This herb may have beneficial, detoxifying effects, and supports optimal liver function. Look for extracts standardized to 70-80 percent silymarin, and take two capsules twice a day or as the label directs.
