Imagine waking up without an ache or pain, cruising through your day with energy and ending it by enjoying a refreshing nightís sleep. Then, imagine waking up to do it all over again. Think itís impossible? Think again. The key is eliminating toxins from your body and your life. Toxins can leave you feeling sluggish, achy, heavy, and out-of-shape. They can also be a factor in the development of chronic diseases like cancer, arthritis, allergies, and many other serious conditions. Here’s where to start:
1.† Eat an organic diet as much as possible.† Most foods contain harmful pesticides and genetically-modified organisms.
2. Try to make a large component of your diet raw vegetables and juices.† Itís easy when you eat a large salad daily and drink a freshly-made juice.
3.† Engage in periodic cleanses or detox programs:† one day a week, a weekend every month, or a longer detox in the spring and fall.
4.† Sauna to help eliminate toxins through the skin in sweat.† Of course, consult your physician prior to starting a sauna regime.
5.† Stretch daily: yoga, tai chi, and qigong, are excellent.
