    Living a Detox Lifestyle *Part I*

    May 5, 2008

    The following suggestions will help you keep your body less toxic:

    Notes on Plastic

    Heating foods in plastic releases harmful chemicals. You should never heat food in plastic…use glass or ceramic instead.

    Skin Brushing

    To aid in lymphatic drainage, use a dry, natural fiber shower brush or loofa to massage your entire body before you shower or bathe. Start at the toes and gently scrub using circular motions toward your heart.

    Clean Water

    Public tap water is often contaminated. Drink and cook with only pure filtered water and consider adding a filter to your shower.


    One of the best ways to increase your metabolic activity is to simply use your body. Daily exercise has innumerable benefits including building lean muscle mass, which helps you burn more calories at rest. Consider jumping on a mini trampoline for 3-5 mins a day to give a boost to your health and vitality. Sweating also releases toxins, consider using sauna at your local gym.
