Seven day plan for Detox

1 Start the morning with lemon juice. Squeeze the juice of one half lemon into a cup of hot water. It helps to cleanse and kick start the digestive system. Even before breakfast have a cup of lemon water.

2 Exercise. Try to exercise for an hour during this detox time. The idea is that you must sweat, pant and puff is good. Examples like jogging, walking uphill, hot yoga, boxing. When exercising vigorously lymph flow and circulation is increased. That means toxins is removed from the body by sweating.

3 Raw foods. When following a detox the idea is to eat food raw. As it is loaded with nutrients and enzymes. Food is most nutritious when it is uncooked and raw. So why not consider salads every day.

4 Drink. Try for 3 liters daily. It helps in removing toxins from the body. It cleans the kidneys. Try for spring water, Filtered water. Herbal detox teas. Vegetable juice. Or if you want you can make your own drink by mixing Dandelion root and nettle, cleavers, calendula, burdock and red clover. Add a teaspoon of these mixed herbs to boiled water in a cup. Leave for 5 minutes. Strain and drink.

5. Mind detox. Detoxing the body is good. But why not consider clearing the mind too. Meditation is a good way to clear your mind. How to meditate? Place your hand palms on your lower belly. Breath in through your nose. Slowly count to 3 or 4 counts. With every breath your tummy should rise. Breath out slowly. This will allow your tummy to drop. 15 minutes a day will be good for mind detox.

6. Brushing body. By following the body brushing technique you improve circulation. That in turn will improve skin detoxification. Use a loofah or a body brush to brush. You should use firm circular strokes before taking a shower. By starting at your feet and hands. Going upwards to your legs and arms. (Also please note to avoid any sensitive areas like throat face sore places and any type of rash. It will only make the skin feel bruised and aggravate it.) Now take that refreshing shower. But remember to end your shower with a 1 minute burst of cold water. That will improve blood circulation.

7. Chewing. When eating remember to chew every mouthful 10 to 12 times. It improves digestion. Also you will avoid overeating.
