Body detox typically implies following a specific diet or using special products that claim to rid your body of toxins. Thus it improves health and promoting weight loss.
Fortunately, your body is well-equipped to eliminate toxins and doesn’t require special diets or expensive supplements to do so.
Try the following to detox your body at home
Ghee: One of the most healing foods is often misunderstood to be fattening. Ghee flushes out the old bile from liver and scrubs toxins off our intestines and can extract stubborn fat-soluble toxins out of our body when used in oil pulling.
Jamun: As an ultimate sugar detox, jamun can stabilize the sugar rush in our system. It is a natural blood purifier and cleanser too.
Aloe vera: This succulent plant is highly alkaline and just what you need if you’re a frequent traveller or cannot do without eating out. One teaspoon of aloe vera gel mixed in coconut water, had on an empty stomach beats the benefits of a fancy imported alkaline water ioniser.
Curd: Our homemade probiotic, curd helps in growing gut-friendly bacteria. Our gut is the first line of defence against harmful toxins or bacteria. So maintaining a healthy gut is essential in helping the body naturally detox.
Khichri: This is the only wholesome meal that is allowed during the Ayurvedic therapy: panchakarma. It is a detox meant for the body, mind and consciousness. It is easy to digest and provides full nutrition too.
