If you have these symptoms? Follow these steps and protect your health.
1. Detox shakes
Prepare a good detox smoothie to eliminate toxins and increase the body’s natural cleansing mechanisms. A glass of shake everyday day is ideal, but if you don’t get it, don’t worry two or three natural shakes a week will be enough.
As for ingredients, the ideal is to keep in mind that the greener, the better. Cucumbers, celery, spinach, kiwi, avocado are foods that are easy to digest and high in fiber, useful to facilitate bowel function. Of course, depending on your taste you can add other detox foods such as bananas, apples or grapefruits. Wild berries are also very versatile for smoothies and help control blood pressure.
If you are looking for a healthy and rich detox smoothie here is an example, place in the blender: natural orange juice, ginger, carrot and turmeric. The flavors of these ingredients complement each other perfectly in a purifying shake for body and mind.
2. Eat healthy
The basic principle is simple: prioritize meals based on vegetables and fruits and of course, eliminate pre-cooked foods from your diet. Soups are a classic. Buy cleansing foods such as cucumber, squash, leek, celery, broccoli, fennel and apples. With these ingredients you can cook excellent purees of detox vegetables; and if you want to give it more consistency you can use legumes.
3. Sleep Enough
It is very important to sleep in a proportionate way and in regular cycles, ideally between 7 and 8 hours a day. In this way you will have more energy and good humor to face the day, and you will also notice the freshest eyes. In fact, little sleep causes eye irritation, dryness, photosensitivity and concentration problems. And, above all, if you wear contact lenses, remember to take them off before going to sleep.
4. Do exercise weekly
We know that the easiest is to stay on the couch with a blanket on top; but it is worth making an effort and doing sports to feel better.
Combine cardio with weights to strengthen your body and be happier, as you release endorphins, strengthen the immune system, and reduce the chance of getting bad.
5. Drink a lot of water
We should not forget to drink water in spring, since we do not feel so much the need to quench our thirst as in summer.
Drinking purifies and stimulates diuresis, promotes skin and promotes good mood. In addition, it moisturizes the eyes avoiding dry eyes. However , if you feel dry eyes, you can also use any good eye drops.
If you want to get warm and not drink only water, we recommend you make tea with purifying herbs such as green tea.
Things not to do on a detox diet
We recommend reducing the consumption of alcohol, caffeine, refined sugars and dairy products. Of course, tobacco is not a friend of detox diets.
