Here are 5 simple tips that you can use to help reduce toxins and cleanse your body of unwanted pollutants found in our everyday environment.
#1 - Open Your Windows
Our bodies require fresh air on a daily basis, so open your windows to release toxic chemicals and carbon dioxide. You can also sleep with the bedroom window open at night, but if you're concerned about intruders, simply leave a tiny sliver open in the sliding window and get a window stopper.
Easy Tip: To make this a daily habit, open the windows the first thing you do when you wake up. This will develop into habit so you'll never forget. The fresh cool air will also energize your morning.
#2 - Get a Plant for Indoors
Having plants indoors will help to absorb the carbon dioxide that we breathe and converts it into oxygen for us. It's a natural recycling process that's good for our lungs and for plants as they receive nourishment to grow.
#3 - Cleanse Your Pores
The largest organ on your body is your skin and is the primary method that we use to eliminate toxins. Take a hot bath or relax in a steam room to help open up your pores, thus allowing accumulated toxins to escape. If you the type that's always on the go and don't have time to fill an entire bath tub with hot water, you can switch to showering using bamboo charcoal soap, which has been proven to naturally open up your pores and draw out toxins.
#4 - Reduce Your Sugar Intake by Half
We all have a sweet tooth, and while we don't advocate cutting out sugar entirely, what we do recommend is reducing the amount of sugar you take in. The reason is because sugar has been known to feed cancer cells, cause digestion problems, allergies, increase weight gain, and much more.
Easy Tip: When you order your next sugary drink, simply cut the sweetness in half. For example, if you order a Chai Tea Latte from Starbucks, ask for 1/2 the normal pumps. You'll still be able to enjoy your favorite drink, but more importantly, you'll reduce your risk of cancer and digestive problems.
#5 - Use Eco & Human Friendly Cleaning Products
Read the labels on your cleaning products and make better choices. If it says "Danger", "Warning", "Poison", or "Poisonous To Your Health", you should avoid using it at all costs. While cleaning with these harmful products, it will get your home clean, but the residue they leave behind will be absorbed into your body, thus slowly and silently deteriorating your health.
Easy Tip: Buy cleaning products that say "Non-Toxic" and "Biodegradable", which means that these are natural ingredients that will break down in nature.
