Components of a Healthy Home and Healthy Cleanse

We all have our guilty pleasures when it comes to food and drink, especially around the holidays. And while most of these might not be immediately harmful when taken in moderation, they can build up and have a cumulative adverse effect on our health, such as making it more difficult to lose weight and making our bodies more susceptible to disease and other ailments.

To avoid this, it's very important that we maintain a healthy lifestyle. We can help this process by occasionally undergoing a healthy cleanse to rid our bodies of toxins and other harmful elements, give the gastrointestinal (GI) tract a rest, lose some weight, and make a break from unhealthy habits.

What Is a Healthy Cleanse?

We interact with over a hundred thousand toxic chemicals in our surroundings every day. Apart from what we ingest, we can also encounter toxins in household cleaners, personal hygiene products, and even the air we breathe. In fact, experts estimate that the average person carries a minimum of 700 known toxins in the blood, skin, tissue, liver, digestive system, and other organs on any given day.

Our body has a remarkable ability to cleanse itself naturally, especially if we are taking good care of it. However, very few of us have perfect diet and lifestyle habits to begin with, and harmful chemicals are prevalent in almost everything we are exposed to on a daily basis, so most of us need a little help. This can come in the form of small changes to our diet and lifestyle over time. A short-term dietary cleanse can help set us on the right path toward new, healthier habits in the long term.

Components of a Healthy Cleanse

1. Lifestyle Changes Minimizing exposure to harmful toxins should always be your first line of defense. Make a habit of reading the labels in all of the products you use and research about the effects of each ingredient on your body. It's also important to lessen stress, as this has been proven to cause physiologic effects that may lead to organ dysfunction. Getting a good night's sleep is likewise essential—especially during a healthy cleanse—as insufficient rest impairs your lymphatic system, which causes toxins to build up.

2. Proper Diet A diet consisting of whole foods, including cruciferous vegetables, berries and other fruits, and garlic, can help your body detoxify through various pathways. Your digestive system is critical in the natural detoxification process of your body, so you should support it by eating gut-friendly foods that are rich in fiber, probiotics, and prebiotics. Choose organic plant foods and the highest-quality animal foods whenever possible, and don't take the value of hydration for granted. Keep in mind, however, that water itself can be a source of contaminants—something a good filtration system can help address.

3. Exercise An efficient way to get rid of toxins in your body is to sweat it out by exercising. Regardless if you're into running, yoga, or high-intensity training, exercising regularly can help release toxins stored in your body's subcutaneous fatty tissue, allowing it to be eliminated through the cleansing organs. Exercise also helps improve digestion and other critical bodily functions, making your body more efficient in getting rid of contaminants.

4. Supplementation Giving your cleanse a boost by using high-quality natural supplements will make the process far more effective and help you achieve your best possible results.
