Full Body Detox: 11 Ways to Rejuvenate Your Body

Your body is well-equipped to eliminate toxins. Your body has a sophisticated way of eliminating toxins that involves the liver, kidneys, digestive system, skin, and lungs. That said, you can help detox your body naturally with simple lifestyle adjustments.

Still, only when these organs are healthy can they effectively eliminate unwanted substances.

Detoxification — or detox — is a popular buzzword.
It typically implies following a specific diet or using special products that claim to rid your body of toxins, thereby improving health and promoting weight loss.
Your body doesn’t actually require special diets or expensive supplements to eliminate toxins.

But some strategies, alongside our Bioresonance frequency therapy, can help rejuvenate your body’s natural detoxification system.

Read on to learn 9 tips as well as common misconceptions about detoxing:

1. Limit alcohol

Your liver metabolizes more than 90% of the alcohol you consume.
Liver enzymes metabolize alcohol to acetaldehyde, a known cancer-causing chemical.
Recognizing acetaldehyde as a toxin, your liver converts it to a harmless substance called acetate, which it eliminates from your body.
While observational studies have shown that low to moderate alcohol consumption benefits heart health, excessive drinking can cause many health problems.

Excessive drinking can severely damage your liver function by causing fat buildup, inflammation, and scarring.
When this happens, your liver cannot function adequately and perform its necessary tasks — including filtering waste and other toxins from your body.
Limiting or abstaining entirely from alcohol is one of the best ways to keep your body’s detoxification system running strong.

2. Focus on sleep

Ensuring adequate quality sleep each night is a must to support your body’s health and natural detoxification system.
Sleeping allows your brain to reorganize and recharge itself, as well as eliminate toxic waste byproducts that accumulate throughout the day.
One of those waste products is a protein called beta-amyloid, which contributes to the development of Alzheimer’s disease.

With sleep deprivation, your body does not have time to perform those functions, so toxins can build up and affect several aspects of health.
Poor sleep has links to short- and long-term health consequences, such as stress, anxiety, high blood pressure, heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and obesity.
You should regularly sleep 7 to 9 hours per night to help promote good health.
If you have difficulties staying or falling asleep at night, lifestyle changes like sticking to a sleep schedule and limiting blue light before bed are useful for improving sleep.

3. Drink more water

Water does so much more than quench your thirst. It regulates your body temperature, lubricates joints, aids digestion and nutrient absorption, and detoxifies your body by removing waste products.
Your body’s cells must continuously repair themselves to function optimally and break down nutrients for your body to use as energy.
However, these processes release wastes in the form of urea and carbon dioxide, which can cause harm if they build up in your blood.

Water transports these waste products, efficiently removing them through urination, breathing, or sweating. So staying properly hydrated is important for detoxification. 
The adequate daily water intake is 3.7 liters for men and 2.7 liters for women. You may need more or less depending on your diet, where you live, and your activity level.

4. Reduce your intake of sugar and processed foods

Research links high consumption of sugary and highly processed foods to obesity and other chronic diseases, such as heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
These diseases hinder your body’s ability to naturally detoxify by harming organs that play an important role, such as your liver and kidneys.
For example, high consumption of sugary beverages can cause fatty liver, a condition that negatively impacts liver function.
You can keep your body’s detoxification system healthy by consuming less junk food.

You can limit junk food by leaving it on the store shelf. Not having it in your kitchen takes away the temptation altogether.
Replacing junk food with healthier choices like fruits and vegetables is also a healthy way to reduce consumption.

5. Eat antioxidant-rich foods

Antioxidants protect your cells against damage caused by molecules called free radicals. Oxidative stress is a condition that results from the excessive production of free radicals.
Your body naturally produces these molecules for cellular processes, such as digestion. However, alcohol, tobacco smoke, a low nutrient diet, and exposure to pollutants can produce excessive free radicals.
These molecules cause damage to a range of cells. Research suggests that free radical damage plays a role in conditions such as dementia, heart disease, liver disease, asthma, and certain types of cancer.
Eating a diet rich in antioxidants can help your body counter oxidative stress caused by excess free radicals and other toxins that increase your disease risk.

Focus on getting antioxidants from food and not supplements, which may, in fact, increase your risk of certain diseases when taken in large amounts.
Examples of antioxidants include vitamin A, vitamin C, vitamin E, selenium, lycopene, lutein, and zeaxanthin.
Berries, fruits, nuts, cocoa, vegetables, spices, and green tea have some of the highest amounts of antioxidants.

6. Eat foods high in prebiotics

Gut health is important for keeping your detoxification system healthy. Your intestinal cells have a detoxification and excretion system that protects your gut and body from harmful toxins, such as chemicals.
Good gut health starts with prebiotics, a type of fiber that feeds the good bacteria in your gut called probiotics. With prebiotics, your good bacteria can produce nutrients called short-chain fatty acids that are beneficial for health.
Antibiotic use, poor dental hygiene, and diet quality can all alter the bacterial balance in your gut.

Consequently, this unhealthy shift in bacteria can weaken your immune and detoxification systems and increase your risk of disease and inflammation.
Eating foods rich in prebiotics can keep your immune and detoxification systems healthy. Good food sources of prebiotics include tomatoes, artichokes, bananas, asparagus, onions, garlic, and oats.

7. Decrease your salt intake

For some people, detoxing is a means of eliminating excess water.
Consuming too much salt can cause your body to retain excess fluid, especially if you have a condition that affects your kidneys or liver — or if you don’t drink enough water.
This excess fluid buildup can cause bloating and make clothing uncomfortable. If you consume too much salt, you can detox yourself of the extra water weight.
While it may sound counterintuitive, increasing your water intake is one of the best ways to eliminate excess water weight from consuming too much salt.

That’s because when you consume too much salt and not enough water, your body releases an antidiuretic hormone that prevents you from urinating and therefore, detoxifying.
By increasing your water intake, your body reduces the secretion of the antidiuretic hormone and increases urination, eliminating more water and waste products.
Increasing your intake of potassium-rich foods — which counterbalance some of sodium’s effects — also helps. Foods rich in potassium include potatoes, squash, kidney beans, bananas, and spinach.

8. Stay active

Regular exercise — regardless of body weight — is associated with a longer life and a reduced risk of many conditions and diseases, including type 2 diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and certain cancers.
While there are several mechanisms behind the health benefits of exercise, reduced inflammation is a key point.
While some inflammation is necessary for recovering from infection or healing wounds, too much of it weakens your body’s systems and promotes disease.

By reducing inflammation, exercise can help your body’s systems — including its detoxification system — function properly and protect against disease.
You should aim to do at least 150–300 minutes a week of moderate intensity exercise — such as brisk walking — or 75–150 minutes a week of vigorous intensity physical activity — such as running.

9. De-Stress

Stress is an important health concern which has adverse effects on physical and mental health. Chronic stress can lead to a multitude of health problems, including a low immune system, which may make us susceptible to illness and infection.

By understanding our stress factors and learning how to manage the stresses of everyday life is vital for maintaining a healthy lifestyle with a functioning immune system.

10. Digital Detox

The constant barrage of digital devices can take a toll on entrepreneur’s focus, productivity and even their self esteem. Comparing ourselves against everyone on social media and constant notifications interrupting our day can be unhealthy toxins in our lives. It may be time to consider a digital detox. You don’t have to give up digital completely to gain some relief and better productivity. 

11. Some more awesome detox tips

Eat sulfur-containing foods. Foods high in sulfur, such as onions, broccoli, and garlic, enhance the excretion of heavy metals like cadmium.
Try out chlorella. Chlorella is a type of algae that has many nutritional benefits and may enhance the elimination of toxins like heavy metals, according to animal studies.
Flavor dishes with cilantro. Cilantro enhances the excretion of certain toxins, such as heavy metals like lead and chemicals, including phthalates and insecticides.
Support glutathione. Eating sulfur-rich foods like eggs, broccoli, and garlic helps enhance the function of glutathione, a major antioxidant produced by your body that is heavily involved in detoxification.

Switch to natural cleaning products. Choosing natural cleaning products like vinegar and baking soda over commercial cleaning agents can reduce your exposure to potentially toxic chemicals.
Choose natural body care. Using natural deodorants, makeups, moisturizers, shampoos, and other personal care products can also reduce your exposure to chemicals.
While promising, many of these effects are only evident in animal studies. Therefore, studies in humans are needed to confirm these findings.
