Detoxify your body with healthy fruits and vegetables

See also

Detoxify means to remove addictive substances and/or toxic chemicals from your body. These toxic substances can be heavy metals, pesticides, herbicides, alcohol, over-the-counter, street or prescribed drugs.

Toxic substances can be obtained by breathing in the chemicals, absorbing the chemicals through showers or soaking in bath water that has toxic substances in them, through eating processed foods, smoking or taking drugs.

It is a good idea to detoxify your body every three to six months for best results. When you detoxify, your body will start to show signs of healthier looking skin, hair, nails and eyes, it will energize your body and increase your stamina, and help rid your body of harmful toxic substances.

Some good vegetables used in detoxifying your body are: green leafy vegetables such as lettuce, mustard greens, and cabbage. Some good fruits for detoxifying are lemons and berries just to name a few.

You can choose how long to detoxify your body: one day, three days or even a week at a time. The longer you stick with the detoxification process the more toxic substances will be removed from your body.

To speed up the process you can use a mild herbal laxative safely for up to five days while on this healthy fruit and vegetable diet. Before you start this or any detoxification process you should always consult your doctor and ask any questions about the safest detoxifying foods, products and laxatives to use if any.

Some people will have headaches, fever, chills, upset stomach, overall ill feeling to name a few symptoms while detoxifying. This is because your body is being forced to expel the toxic substances.

There are over-the-counter detoxification products you can buy but eating fresh fruits and vegetables are the healthier road to take. You will not only look and feel better you might just lose a few pounds while your at it.
