Figs:

If you have been having bowel function troubles, having a hard time to digest foods, and have been feeling sluggish, figs are going to help you a lot. This may sound gross, but figs actually will scrape the insides of the intestines as they digest, and this helps clear the intestines out and will help to improve the bowels, digestive system, and you will feel better and lose that sluggish feeling. Figs have been noted as one of the best detox fruits.

Grapefruit:

If someone is trying to lose weight with the detox, grapefruit and grapefruit juice can help with that. Grapefruit has been known to help burn calories faster. Grapefruit is good for a lot of things, but one should only eat ½ of a big grapefruit each day, as it can cause havoc with the liver as time goes by. If more than ½ of a grapefruit is eaten in a day and glasses of water are added into the diet, the liver will be flushed out better, so the grapefruit should not have the effects it normally would on the liver. Grapefruit juice does help to flush toxins out of the body.

    If you haven’t eaten fruit and vegetables on a regular basis and you start to eat a lot of fruit, your body will detoxify itself first. Even if you don’t change your use of stimulants!
    Fruit can be used to help your body detoxify. The best way of doing this is not to eat anything but fruit until noon. Till that time your body is still busy detoxifying from the night before. Now you know why people always drink freshly squeezed orange- or grapefruit juice in the morning.

    The strongest detoxifying effect is caused by the acid fruits. Especially (red) grapefruit and lemons are detoxifying. Citrus fruit is all acid fruit but also tomatoes and pineapples are acid fruits . Squeeze 3 oranges, two mandarins and half a red grapefruit for breakfast. It’s the quickest energy supply to wake you up in the morning!
    Be a little-bit careful with the acid fruits when you are ill. Your body is already very busy detoxifying and when stimulating this process it could cause an over-reaction of your body to clean itself even more and could make you even feel worse for that moment. So don’t go squeezing 20 oranges to get better.

    If you are really sick and don’t want to eat or drink, the best drink is a glass with the juice of half a lemon filled up with boiled water and a bit of cane sugar (not refined white sugar!) Because you only use half a lemon the detoxifying effect is not so strong but your body does receive much vitamin C.
