How to Rid Your Body of Toxins

A healthy detox plan should involve strategies to improve the health of the body’s essential organs, namely the liver, digestive system, kidneys, lungs, and skin. By supporting and improving the functions of these organs, you can improve your body’s ability to flush out toxins. As a result, you’ll look and feel refreshed and rejuvenated. 


Consuming a lot of sugar, processed foods, and alcohol can diminish the health of your body’s natural detoxing processes. So, focusing on proper nutrition, specifically by reducing your intake of sugar, processed foods, and alcohol is an excellent strategy for detoxing the body. Additionally, eating foods that are high in antioxidants as part of your regular diet can help prevent free radical damage and, in turn, oxidative stress in the body. Examples of antioxidant-rich foods include berries, vegetables, nuts, spices, and green tea. 

Water Intake

Water is a crucial component of a healthy diet to prevent a buildup of toxins in the body. Your body’s ability to complete digestive processes, absorb nutrients, and remove waste products all hinge on a healthy daily intake of water. 


Regular exercise helps to reduce inflammation in the body, which can support the body’s detoxification system and strengthen its ability to fend off disease. In particular, regular exercise is linked to a lower risk of conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure, and type 2 diabetes. 

Chelation Therapy

In chelation therapy, molecules of the amino acid EDTA are administered to the body through an IV. EDTA binds to heavy metals and flushes them from the body through the urine. This process reduces the toxic metal burden on the body. Given that heavy metals can cause substantial free radical damage in the body over time, chelation therapy can reduce inflammation to ease unwanted effects of the aging process and symptoms of chronic disease.
