The liver is by far the most important detox organ in the body, since day and night it is busy identifying, neutralizing and removing toxic substances. If you want to support the liver function, it is important to eat lots of raw green leafy vegetables (or drink them through green smoothies), since it contains a lot of chlorophyll, which supports the natural cleansing of the liver. In addition, you can take superfoods that are high in chlorophyll, such as wheatgrass powder , chlorella and spirulina , and other liver cleansing foods such as lemon, lime and celery.
The best way to clean your kidneys is to drink 2 to 3 liters of (spring) water throughout the day, so that your kidneys are thoroughly flushed. In addition, it is good to eat some extra acidic fruit (orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit). If you want to treat your kidneys extra, drink organic coconut water that is bursting with vitamins and minerals. In our blog ‘ Coconut water – the healthiest water that exists! ‘you can read why coconut water is so good for your body.
Heavy metal detox
Most people have a lot of heavy metals in their body, such as mercury, aluminum and cadmium. These heavy metals are stored in fat cells, where they can sometimes sit for years and eventually make the body sick. It is therefore wise to rid your body of these highly toxic substances once or twice a year. The best way is an extensive detox treatment (for example the 21-day cleaning of Blessed Herbs ), but you can also support your body daily in the removal of heavy metals with Oxy-Powder (Global Healing Center), chlorella and spirulina. In addition, it is of course wise to get into contact with heavy metals as little as possible, but unfortunately you can never completely prevent it.
Your body thrives best in a somewhat alkaline environment. Unfortunately, the body of most people is far too acidic, due to excessive consumption of processed foods, grains and meat. You can make your body more alkaline by doing a pH detox, where you only eat raw food for a week or more, so only uncooked / uncooked vegetables, fruit, raw nuts , seeds and sprouts. You can measure your pH value yourself with these handy pH test strips .
