How about a mini Detox?

No time for a full body detox? Feeling sluggish, a little run down? Do you feel like you ate a little more then you should have over the holidays? It may be time for a mini detox!

What is a mini detox?

You can think of a mini detox as detox-lite! It is a lot easier to do than your traditional full on detoxification or colon cleanse. Here is what to do:

1. Cleanse your mind.

Just two minutes each morning is all you need to cleanse your mind. As soon as you wake up, since you are already relaxed, sit comfortably, close your eyes or focus on an object and breath deeply and evenly. If you start thinking, tell yourself you will get back to those thoughts later and bring your attention back to your inhales and exhales.

2. Eat a lot of detoxifying foods.

Sulfur rich vegetables, such as broccoli and onions support liver detox enzymes, fiber rich foods such as lentils and fruit, help eliminate toxins and lean protein, like wild salmon, organic chicken and tofu is rich in amino acids, which prepare toxins for elimination. Some spices at every meal. such as curry and cinnamon, boosts metabolism which is a great way to help your body rid itself of toxins rapidly.

3. Dry brush your skin

Before you get into a warm shower every morning, “brush” your body using a natural bristle brush in light circular and upward strokes on your feet, legs, belly and arms. This stimulates your skin and lymphatic system – two of the most important detoxifying organs in your body.

4. Take artichoke leaf extract.

This detox supplement increases the formation and flow of bile and protects the liver cells from damage.

5. Drink Green Tea

3 times a day, drink a cup of organic decaffeinated green tea. The liver detox enzymes are stimulated by the properties of green tea!
