How to Detox Your Body Naturally Daily

Just like cars, generators, motors and other machines need to be serviced every now and then to ensure they don’t break down, the human body also needs to be detoxed often to get rid of toxins. Toxins sometimes seem farfetched but the truth is that there are toxins everywhere – our food, water and even the air we breathe. This makes it necessary to detox often to keep the body healthy. 

Detoxing isn’t rocket science. You don’t have to wait for that time when you can take 30 days off food for a cleanse. Here are daily habits you could start to help remove harmful toxins from your body. 


Drink Plenty of Water

You must have heard the importance of water to the body over and over again but that’s because it is very true. Water is important for the health of all your vital organs because it aids in every metabolic process in the body. Water also flushes your body of toxins through elimination. Drink between eight and 10 glasses of water daily. 

Start your Day with Lemon Water

The citric acid in lemon aids in detoxification. The atomic structure of lemon juice is similar to the digestive juices found in the stomach, which aids the liver in producing bile. More bile keeps food moving smoothly through your gastrointestinal tract. Just squeeze the juice from half a lemon into a glass of lukewarm water. If you want, you can add a little raw honey too. Drink it first thing in the morning on an empty stomach, and wait 30 minutes before eating your breakfast.

Drink Detox Smoothies

Green smoothies are smoothies made from fruits and vegetables like spinach, kale, beetroot, apples, oranges, pears, pineapple, avocado, cucumber, ginger, etc., are wonderful healthy addition to your daily diet. They are detoxifying because they help stimulate the digestive tract to eliminate toxic waste from the body. If you can’t afford to do this daily, try doing it at least three times a week.

Drink Green Tea

This is very easy to achieve. If you are a coffee lover, just switch from coffee to green tea. Green tea is rich with antioxidants that support detoxification as it contains ingredients that eliminate harmful toxins from the body. Green tea also contains a class of micronutrients called polyphenols that promote the production of fat-burning hormones that are inhibited by toxins. You can take 2 to 3 cups of green tea daily. 

Exercise

Yes working out is also an amazing way to rid your body harmful toxins. Sweating aids in removing excess body salts and other nasty poisons from your body. Exercising is the best way to produce sweat. When you exercise for at least 30 minutes a day, you power up your lungs and get that breath flowing. This in turn pumps toxins out on a continual basis, and it also makes your heart stronger. If you cannot come up with your own fitness routine, you can get fitness equipment to help you work out better. Exercise mats are also great for aerobics. 

Long Sleep

Now this is the easiest part. You just have to be disciplined enough to get your body to sleep in good time. Your body cleanses itself while you sleep, with the liver doing its job when your body is in rest mode. Even the brain performs the vital function of eliminating toxins during sleep. This is why you feel rejuvenated after a restful night with six to eight hours of deep sleep.

Now you know!

Why Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme Resigned From House on the Rock Church in Abuja

I have been in pains!

If you follow me on Instagram, you will notice, I put up my pastor and coach's picture last weekend because I was heart broken.
He is Pastor Goodheart Ekwueme, the outgone (as much as I hate to use that) resident pastor of my local assembly in Abuja. I and all those who knows him, are going to miss him soooooooo much, it hurts.

Jenny Chisom's 12 Codes of Conduct for Men That Rivals Any Male Code

It's been a tough past week so I am grateful for Sunday heralding a new week.
I have been burdened to create a Code of Conduct for members of the League of Extraordinary Men (LExM) on Facebook. So while I couldn't attend service, I sat down and wrote this down on my note pad, then typed it.
This came in a bid to begin to restructure the group to ensure it is serving the right purpose and the right men.

Violence Against Men, Mnombo Madyibi and The VAPP Bill

Quite some fuss has been on about this man in picture MnomboMadyibi who was allegedly hit with a bottle of wine and also suffered attempted suffocation using a red and white teddy bear. But as expected it did not get as much attention like if the switch was fixed (the experience being that of the woman).
We must know that if men keep being treated like non humans, even the violence against women we usually fight for, will only increase astronomically, since after all a woman must live and find her fulfilled being married to a man or at least living and being in relationships with them.
