Giant Sea Turtle, also called a Leatherback, is the largest of all living turtles.It can easily be differentiated from other modern sea turtles by its lack of a bony shell.
You may have heard of probiotics or perhaps you don’t know much, but these powerful substances help to naturally eliminate bad bacteria in the body. Knowing that they work in this way, it’s time to put probiotics to work for you.
Here are some things to keep in mind as you turn to probiotics for a natural cleansing process:
• You have probably heard of probiotics in certain foods such as yogurt and they are continuing to grow in popularity.
• In its natural form, probiotics are a natural and good bacteria that help to regulate and balance out the balance of organisms.
• The most notable application for probiotics is in the digestive system where harmful bacteria and other organisms can grow over time.
• You can turn to certain foods for probiotics and you can also find them in supplement form.
• They can be of great help in not only helping to regulate the bacteria that builds up in your intestines, but also in your ability to get rid of these harmful substances once and for all.
• Since the digestive tract is the most obvious area where these substances can build up, probiotics are an obvious and very helpful tool to assist.
• The use of probiotics not only helps you to keep the digestive system working properly, but also work as a cleansing agent.
• If you turn to them regularly then you can expect to have a fully functional digestive system and to ensure that the presence of these good bacteria will keep you from developing any health problems moving forward.
13. Try yoga for a new type of exercise and meditation:
We already know that exercise is good for our health and for our ability to cleanse naturally. Taking it one step further, yoga can be one of the most helpful types of exercise out there when it comes to the body’s natural ability to cleanse and get rid of toxins that have built up over time.
Yoga is not only a great form of exercise, but can also help you to meditate as well. So you get rid of stress as you work through the movements. This is good for the body and the mind as you have a chance to recharge.
These flexibility and balance type of movements can be instrumental to your ability to breath in good cleansing oxygen and breathe out harmful substances within the body.
As you move through these poses and breathe properly, you are relieving stress and helping the body to cleanse in a very natural and effective way. You are getting deep down into muscle tissue as you would with a massage, and you are also helping to breathe out toxins that have built up in your system over time. This is one example of how cleansing can help the circulatory system in a dynamic way that has many other helpful applications as well.
14. Learn to incorporate superfoods into each meal:
The great thing about superfoods is that they contain important nutrients and antioxidants which our bodies need to fight off infections. The presence of these antioxidants and nutrients in the body help to fight off harmful toxins and substances that may compromise our immune system and our overall health—so the inclusion of them in our diets is critical.
Superfoods are a delicious and nutritious group of foods including foods rich in Omega 3 fatty acids like:
You can also turn to fruits and vegetables that are bright in color as that means that their dark hue contains plenty of antioxidants. Options such as these make great choices for this reason:
Try to incorporate super foods into every meal and enjoy how beneficial they are. They not only make for healthy and low fat food choices, but they also help you to boost your antioxidant intake.
These substances can help you to not only cleanse and get rid of harmful substances that have built up, but also fight off any harmful agent that may be trying to attach your system. Something as small as a virus or as harmful as a disease is more easily fought off when you include super foods and their important antioxidant concentration.
15. Cut out simple carbohydrates, white sugar and flour, and any fried foods:
The white bread that you probably enjoyed as a kid is doing absolutely nothing for your overall health. The starchy sides at dinner like white rice or pasta are as damaging to your waistline and your health as the more extreme donuts, cakes, and cookies that you enjoy.
Many people don’t understand just how harmful products made with white sugar or flour can be, but they result in toxins in the body that you don’t want. These simple carbohydrates make you feel full and satisfied when you eat them, but behind the scenes you are experiencing a surge and then fall of your blood sugar level. This isn’t good for your appetite or your health!
The same dire consequences of simple carbohydrates are a major component of the very toxins that build up in your digestive system. These are not the types of substances or preservatives that you need, and that’s why fiber rich whole grains and complex carbohydrates are so vital to your health. They ensure that the digestive system works the way that it is intended to.
So as you move towards complex carbohydrates which are better for digestion, you also want to be sure that you get rid of the simple carbohydrates in the process. The rise and fall of blood sugar is not good for weight loss, and the deposit of preservatives and harmful substances result in toxins that can slow you down and ultimately make you sick in the process.
16. Learn to properly manage your stress:
What you know is that stress isn’t good for you. What you realize is that to properly take care of yourself and practice a truly healthy lifestyle means to properly manage your stress. What you probably don’t realize is that if you let stress get the best of you it can mean that your body is not operating at an optimal level.
You are not releasing good hormones when your body feels stress. As a matter of fact your body may result through weight gain, illness, and a complete lack of energy when stress is present. You are more prone to make improper health choices and more likely to feel depressed and ultimately become sick easier.
When you feel stress the body is holding onto the harmful toxins and therefore is slowed down. When you learn to manage stress properly you are taking a good measure at naturally cleansing the body. This is not only a great way to take care of yourself, but to ensure that none of the harmful substances take residence in your body and contribute to improper health in the long run.
17. Turn to home remedies for illness rather than antibiotics:
The very medications that are intended to help your illnesses or health conditions may be contributing to toxins in the body. Though antibiotics and other medications are intended to help you to stay healthy, they also contain harmful substances that can build up in your intestines and digestive system over time.
Though some medications may be very necessary, it’s always best to try home remedies whenever possible. If you can fight off a common illness using options like ginger, garlic, a smoothie, or other natural herbs or plants, then you have a good chance at achieving better health and performing a cleanse in the process.
The natural home remedies help to get rid of the illness in the way that your body requires. So as they are fighting off the substances or viruses that are making you sick, you are also getting rid of all other harmful toxins in the body. You feel great as you are fighting off illness through natural means and performing a cleanse in the process-and that’s good for everything!
18. Adapt to a truly healthy lifestyle and try to eliminate daily medication wherever possible:
The more that you can opt for natural methods for taking care of yourself, the better off you will be in the short and long run. A truly healthy lifestyle consists of eating the right foods, exercising regularly and challenging yourself, getting plenty of rest, learning to manage your stress, getting rid of the bad habits, performing a regular cleanse, and adapting to a positive and healthy mindset. This is how you achieve good health now and well into the future!
If you have medication that is life saving then that’s a must to continue on with. If however you take medication that could be replaced by natural and healthy home remedies and methods, then that’s another way to cleanse and to opt for better and healthier living. Getting rid of any substances that can be construed as toxins by the body, such as regular medications, is always a wise idea.
A truly healthy lifestyle that incorporates all of these elements will be instrumental in helping you to be your very best, and you will notice it right away. A cleanse is an important part of this. As you perform all of the other measures you are also helping the body with a natural way of getting harmful substances out through the very best methods as well.
19. Increase circulation by massaging pressure points and skin brushing:
You probably brush your hair and your teeth every day, but more than likely you don’t stop to think about brushing your skin. The truth is that brushing a fine bristle brush gently over all of your skin surfaces can be an excellent way to stimulate circulation. Here’s how it works:
• Fine a fine bristle brush that is gentle not harsh and begin at the feet with the slow and subtle brushing motions.
• Work your way slowly up from the feet to the legs and up the entire body.
• Take the time to really focus on areas that feel tight or that may be prone to circulation issues such as the ankles, knees, and even arms.
• Repeat the motion a couple of times each week to get the maximum benefits.
• While this often looked to as a method to help to eliminate cellulite, the truth is that this is good at stimulating circulation and ridding the body of toxins that may build up over time
Many people don’t take the time to focus on circulatory issues, particularly if they are younger. This is not a problem just for the older because circulation is important at any stage of your life. Be careful to ensure that you keep the circulation running in the body at all times and focus on areas where the toxins may tend to gather.
Another way to generate and promote good circulation is of course to focus on pressure points. This will help not only to ease tension as with a massage, but also to keep the circulatory system working the way that it should. As you focus on these pressure points such as the temples, the palms of your hands, the balls of your feet, and so on, you are releasing tension from the body.
You are also helping to gently and effectively release toxins from the body in the process of doing this as well. When you press gently on these pressure points you can feel it almost instantly with the release of tension.
It helps to stimulate your circulation as well and that means that the toxins are pushed to the surface and then flushed out. Be sure that as with massage of any type that you are drinking plenty of water to help flush out the toxins naturally. Partnering skin brushing with focus on the pressure points can be quite helpful with pushing the toxins out of the body and releasing any build up tension as well.
20. Promote elimination through proper diet and hydration:
The truth is that most of us don’t properly eliminate each and every day. Unless you are very regular with your bowel movements and even your urination, you are holding onto waste in the body that need not be there. So this is where you must really focus some concerted effort on elimination, and put major emphasis on the diet that you keep and how hydrated you are.
Start by taking a long hard look at your diet and then work your way out from there:
-Are you eating enough fiber each day?
-Are you eating the right foods such as fresh fruits and vegetables, lean proteins, beans and legumes, whole grains, good fats, and low fat dairy?
-How much water do you realistically drink in a day?
-Do you find yourself feeling unusually thirsty at any point?
-How often do you urinate throughout the day?
-How often do you have bowel movements?
Believe it or not, these are all important questions for your health and for learning to naturally and effectively cleanse. If you are dehydrated that’s not good for your overall health. Not only that but it also means that you are not getting enough water to flush out your digestive system properly and move the toxins out.
If you aren’t eating enough fiber or a mix of the right foods, then you simply aren’t evacuating enough. If you don’t have enough bowel movements, that waste material can end up being stored by the body and the end result is that it turns into toxins. This is nothing that you may want to think about, but it can contribute to an unhealthy and improperly working system in the body.
Start to look at ways that you can promote proper digestion and elimination. Drinking more water and ensuring that you are never dehydrated is one way—keep flushing out the bad toxins. Eating the right foods with a major focus on fiber is another way, and an important one that ensures that you move the waste material out of the body. Keep track of these things and make the necessary changes to ensure that urination and evacuation are happening regularly to keep things moving along properly.
21. Opt for a diet rich in whole foods that are free of additives and preservatives:
We’ve talked about just how important it is to keep a healthy diet and to focus on the right foods. Equally as important is to get the wrong foods out of your diet as well, and many people don’t recognize this. Though you may be prone to turn to “diet foods”, those that are low fat, low calorie, or packaged for your convenience, this may be your demise.
Rather than turning to prepackaged foods, you want to opt for whole foods that come from the earth and are natural. When you turn to packaged foods for convenience, they are normally loaded with additives and preservatives. Though you may be getting fewer calories and fat with these foods, their manmade ingredients are wreaking havoc on your body.
Any type of packaged food, whether it seems healthy or not, is made with additives and preservatives of some type. Just like pesticides, these can and will build up in your intestines as toxins over time. You will feel slowed down and may exhibit other symptoms that make you sick. It’s not a good scenario!
Get rid of the obviously unhealthy packaged foods that are loaded with fat, but take it one step further. Just because a food appears to be healthy or “diet ready” doesn’t mean that it’s good for you. If it’s loaded down with additives, preservatives, chemicals, or ingredients that you can’t pronounce, that directly translates to toxins in your digestive system. Get rid of them and you begin to really cleanse your system immediately!
22. Learn to meditate and incorporate this into your life each day:
We have seen just how helpful yoga can be for your body and mind, but take it one step further. Just as exercise helps you to get rid of the toxins, so too can meditation. It’s good for you mentally and that means exceptional benefits for the entire body as well.
• When you meditate you are slowly and gently detaching from everyday life, and this means that you are letting go of what is troubling you.
• When you can detach in this way, you are letting go of stress and anxiety.
• Over time this stress and anxiety would build up and keep your body from operating at full capacity, so releasing these elements helps you to be in better health.
• When stress takes over your life, you are not in your best health and your body is bogged down with toxins and anxiety that keeps you from being your best.
Learning to incorporate meditation into your everyday life can ensure that you let go of any built up tension, anxiety, and stress. This is good for your mental health of course, but it also translates to an immediate benefit to your physical well being in the process. You will love the direct and indirect benefits of meditation as part of a healthy lifestyle.
23. Eliminate common sources of toxins such as excessive caffeine, alcohol, tobacco, and processed foods:
The very things that you turn to for bad habits or use to help relax you can be contributing to your inability to cleanse. These substances or bad habits translate directly or indirectly to toxins in the body. The end result is that they keep you from being healthy and may actually make you sick.
The most obvious is tobacco in any form, but of course smoking being the most common type. Smoking offers only harmful substances into your body such as nicotine, which of course can contribute to long term health problems.
You might not realize it, but excessive alcohol or caffeine can act much in the same way. Having a bit of caffeine or alcohol isn’t the problem, but when you binge or drink too much of either, it’s not a good thing. Over time these can turn into toxins that the body can’t process. You will feel the dependence and the health problems will keep mounting.
The same goes for processed foods, fried foods, or others that are made with unnatural ingredients. Anything that doesn’t come from the earth or that has chemically enhanced ingredients isn’t good for your ability to naturally cleanse or feel healthy and strong.
Kicking bad habits is just as important in a healthy lifestyle as is adapting to the right ones. Just as you want to focus on eating right, exercising, and getting plenty of rest, you also want to be sure to get rid of the bad habits that are holding you back. If you can learn to manage your caffeine and alcohol intake, get rid of processed foods, and kick the smoking habit for good, your body will cleanse and feel the best it has in years!
24. Turn to natural herbs and holistic medicine to give your body what it needs:
There are so many wonderful natural herbs out there that offer unique and amazing benefits. Not only can they enhance and improve your health, but they can also help you to feel better and operate better in the process. You can turn to holistic medicine such as with acupuncture and find a whole new world of herbs and natural remedies to help whatever ails you.
Some herbs are easy enough to incorporate into your daily life as they are readily available. Options like green tea, garlic, basil, and even cilantro have some natural cleansing properties and you can easily add them into your favorite dishes or enjoy them on their own.
If you are not sure about the more holistic herbs then you should ask a professional. Using these natural herbs can offer great help with cleansing the body, but you do have to be sure to choose which ones are right for you and then use them properly.
Some of the herbs that offer great cleansing in the body include:
Be sure that you know what to choose and how to use it, but then know that these herbs will help to naturally and effectively cleanse. You may even see some of the results of that happening rather quickly, so don’t be alarmed if that happens. When you partner up these herbs with an already healthy lifestyle and other cleansing methods, you will be in the best shape yet.
25. Become a juicing expert and incorporate key nutrients into your day through this process:
There is certainly great merit in juicing for a variety of health reasons, and perhaps that’s why this has caught on as such a craze. You do want to be sure that you utilize the right fruits and vegetables to get the greatest benefits, but suffice it to say that juicing can work wonders for your ability to cleanse.
You want to choose ingredients that will not only help you to cleanse, but that also introduce nutrients into the body. As you evacuate the bad toxins that have built up through this type of natural cleansing, you ideally want to introduce nutrients to replace any that may be lost in the process.
As with anything else, be sure to take your time with this and never go to extremes. Try a new juice 1-2 times a week just to get used to it and to find what works best for you. Then continue to add on until juicing becomes part of your everyday life. A bit of experimenting can ensure that you get some wonderful health benefits and that you learn how to cleanse in the most effective way possible.
Here is a great sample recipe for juicing that can give you great cleansing, health benefits, and actually tastes good in the process.
Apple Fennel Cleansing Juice
1/2 fennel bulb
1/2 small red cabbage
Small wedge of lemon or lime
26. Perform a full body cleanse every month to get rid of any toxins that have built up:
Take the time to naturally cleanse on a daily basis using some of the most natural and common foods that you probably already have on hand. Items such as grapefruit, basil, garlic, onions, green tea, mustard greens, walnuts, and avocado will help your body to cleanse on a regular basis.
Take it one step further though as you get used to the idea of a full body cleanse and make this a regular habit. Perform a full body cleanse when you plan to be at home for a day or two and then see the immediate positive impact that this has as the toxins literally come spilling out of the body—don’t be alarmed with some of what you see!
There are many different ways to cleanse the body in this manner, but you want to go for the homemade option if possible. While there are many manmade concoctions and “proven” solutions out there, some of the best types come from your creation specifically. Do be sure to go with a trusted source or recipe, and there are some very common ones out there.
One very common recipe is the Lemon, Maple Syrup, Cayenne cleanse, which is as follows:
*Pour ½ tsp. of cayenne pepper into a 10-ounce glass.
*Add 4 Tbsp. of freshly squeezed lemon juice.
* Fill the glass with warm water and stir thoroughly.
*Add ½ tsp. of organic maple syrup to sweeten the mixture, if desired.
*Drink on an empty stomach each month to cleanse your colon.
*Cayenne pepper breaks down mucus in your colon, while lemon juice eliminates toxins.
*Do take the time to experiment with your threshold for cayenne pepper so that you don’t hurt your stomach.
*Be prepared that this can elicit immediate reaction and that it may be unusual for you to experience at first, but it’s a great cleanse.
*This is really not intended for weight loss, but rather for a good natural cleanse that your body needs no more than once per month.
Another possible cleansing recipe to try out is the Apple, Ginger, Psyllium Cleanse, and the recipe is:
* Juice enough apples to fill an 8 oz. glass.
* If you do not have a juicer, fill the glass with organic apple juice.
*Add 1 tsp. each ground ginger and ground psyllium husk.
*Mix thoroughly or blend on low until smooth.
*Psyllium binds waste materials together, while ginger flushes toxins from the colon so it’s a great combination.
*The nutrients in the apple juice will support your colon during the cleanse.
*Do be sure to drink plenty of water after this cleanse to keep the digestive system moving.
*You can enjoy some light eating after you perform this cleanse, but give it time to take effect.
A proper cleanse using these or other natural methods performed once a week can be the best thing you can do to get rid of toxins and keep things moving the way that they are intended to. Always go for natural for best effects!
27. Avoid second hand smoke or any other harmful toxins that you may come into contact with:
Quite simply put, if something doesn’t smell right to you then avoid it. Even if you don’t smoke, avoid second hand smoke or any other toxins that may be coming into the air. Some sources are rather obvious such as second hand smoke, and some may need a bit more investigation.
If you have to work with chemicals or other substances that may be harmful, be sure to at least wear a mask. Avoiding anything that you breathe in or ingest which could hurt you or turn into toxins is always wise. This is particularly important if you work in an environment that may contain such chemicals such as a factory or even a dry cleaners.
If at all possible, avoid the harmful chemicals such as second hand smoke—that’s the easy part! If you work in an environment or come into contact with harmful chemicals then protect yourself as much as possible. A mask that you wear or even short breaks from time to time can be quite helpful in ensuring you don’t breath in the source of toxins.
28. Learn to truly take care of yourself and listen to your body when something is or is not working:
The bottom line is that when it comes to cleansing and healthy and natural living, it’s all about taking care of yourself in the best way possible. You have seen all of the various methods and tools to do that, but sometimes you also have to listen to your body as well.
Learn to be in touch with what your body is telling you and then react accordingly. This will ensure that you not only keep yourself in the best health, but also that you perform a cleanse as necessary. Sometimes you can just feel it from a general lack of energy or lethargy which is unusual for you.
Symptoms that we tend to take for granted as everyday ailments can often be indicative of the fact that our bodies are holding onto toxins. This ultimately means that a cleanse is essential and we must learn to pay close attention to these symptoms and indications. We know our bodies better than anyone, and if something doesn’t seem right then it’s best to pay close attention to that.
If you are having frequent headaches, stomach upset, diarrhea, constipation, feel exhausted, experience cramping, difficulty focusing, lack of energy, or any other symptoms that don’t feel right, then always take the time to listen to your body. This will ensure that you know that something is amiss and can likely pinpoint that a cleanse is required.
You will get into these good habits in no time at all. You will learn which methods and tools work best for you to cleanse properly and take the measures to do so. You will also learn to be better at listening to your body and making the best decisions for your overall health. This is a very powerful step, and it comes from awareness and the initiative to act when something doesn’t seem right within the body.
