PURGE YOUR BODY OF TOXINS
To stimulate excretion of toxins, Dr. Crinnion recommends…
- Drink three cups of unsweetened organic green tea daily — it’s rich in antioxidant polyphenols, which help flush the toxins from your body.
- Eat organic brown rice several times a week — its fiber helps move toxins out in your stool. If you don’t like brown rice, take a rice bran fiber supplement.
- Include more chlorophyll in your diet. Known as “nature’s cleanser,” chlorophyll neutralizes destructive chemical pollutants and prevents the build-up of toxins. Good food sources include green, leafy vegetables… seaweed… and green drinks such as wheat grass juice “shots” available at health-food stores. Another option: Blue green algae supplements such as spirulina and chlorella, also available at health-food stores.
- The less sugar you eat, the better. It suppresses your immune system and your liver’s ability to purge toxins.
Sweat it out. With your doctor’s okay, take a sauna (about 135°F) several times a week to release toxins in your sweat. Enhance your ability to detoxify by using a loofah to remove dead skin cells and unclog pores.
