Detox or detoxification is the medical concept of cleansing the body of toxins. A real detoxification is the removal from the human body of poison, drugs, alcohol, heavy metals and other toxic substances: such medical treatments are conducted in medical institutions. Now a popular word – detox - names a variety of programs to cleanse the body of toxins, diet, rational nutrition, etc. After an active alcoholic celebration of New Year's holidays and eating salads, generously dressed with mayonnaise, it's high time to remember the methods of detoxification.
Habits that help to cleanse the body
Surely, each of us heard that morning should start with a glass of water on an empty stomach. Take the rule of drinking clean water (you can drink it with a lemon, not cold - 20-30 degrees), as soon as you wake up. This simple ritual will help to "start" the digestive organs and cleanse the body at the cell level. Breathing exercises will strengthen metabolism and oxidative processes.
It would be better if you attend several yoga classes and learn how to do pranayama - breathing exercises correctly. If you do not want to breathe – then you can walk. It is desirable to get up early in the morning before the work or even to go there on foot if it is not too far.
