Your body detoxifies itself constantly, all day long. Essentially, detoxification is the process by which your body gets rid of matter and toxins it doesn’t need or want. Your body has several systems that do this, including the colon, liver, kidney, lungs, and even skin. But, like all of your body’s systems—from your immune system to your digestive one—your detox system can use a little boost sometimes. When you talk about a detox program, it will typically involve A) limiting the amount of toxins you introduce into your body and B) Improving the function of organs that remove toxins. Detoxification habits aren’t something you only need to do a couple times a year. While some more intense regiments should be done sparingly (like juice cleanses) there are gentle ways you can help your body eliminate toxins every single day. Here are simple ways you can detox daily.
