What is detoxification?
Through detoxing you clean your blood from the unwanted things. The cleansing processes happen through your liver, skin, kidneys, lung, colon and lymph. By consuming the proper type and quantity of foods drinks and some other methods, you eliminate the toxins from your body naturally. (Detailed explanation here)
What is the first step?
In my opinion, the first step of detoxifying the body is to reduce the amount toxins you take in. It is prevention through a healthy lifestyle.
Have you ever thought about how much junk you eat? Processed foods, sodas and millions of other foods and beverages contain tons of toxic chemicals. They are also rich in saturated fats, especially trans fats, refined sugar, and bad carbs. These all acts as toxins.
Smoking, drinking too much alcohol and caffeine also cause the same harmful effects and dehydrate your body.
The solution is simple. Consume as less processed foods and turn to organic ones. Cut off those bad habits of smoking and alcohol consumption.Related: Find the best healthy eating tips here.
On top of that, we use chemicals everywhere else. We use cleaners containing toxic components to get rid of bacteria in the house, but these things are as harmful to us as well.
Besides we use various skincare and hair-care products that are also rich in unnatural components. Just think of the shampoos, toothpaste, perfumes, etc. you use. All the unhealthy elements of these products are inside you. Hence, try to use less of these products and find natural alternatives.
To sum up, the best cure is prevention. Since most of us do not usually pay attention to these factors, a detoxification program is strongly recommended.
The best is that you do not need to change your lifestyle drastically during the detoxifying process, and there are various ways to do it.
Furthermore, it only lasts for a few days and besides the health benefits, you may also lose weight. Now let’s see some of the best methods on how to detox your body.
Drinking fresh juice made from organic fruits and vegetables is surely the most enjoyable way. But be careful, I’m not talking about the juices you can buy from the stores, you have to make your juices. Those products contain various additives. Hence they are useless, the worse they do just the opposite.
There are tons of detox drinks for weight loss recipes online so you will certainly find some that you can enjoy.

On top of that, by consuming juices for some days you can lose weight fast as well.
How long should you do juice fasting?
Not more than 1-3 days depending on your health, but always consult with your doctor before, especially if you want to do lengthier fasting. You should not do juice cleansing 3-4 times a year.
Personally, I prefer this method for cleansing my body. I love smoothies and juices, so it is easy to follow.
Here are some 3-day juice detox recipes
It is a rather radical detox diet, and it must be done for just a day. Since you do not consume any solid foods at all your digestive system has an entire day to rest and recover.
The water cleans you entire digestive and circulation system from the toxins and the other unhealthy build-ups. It is a fast yet efficient method.
Personally, I do not do this type of detox program because it is too radical for me, and I cannot fit it into my active lifestyle.
Instead of that I pay attention to the amount of water I take in daily, which is about 8 glass per a day or more, to keep my body hydrated. I also drink herbs, particularly green tea.
