10 Tips for Optimizing Your Cleanse

A new year naturally encourages us to cleanse and start fresh. Gyms fill up, resolutions are made and we all feel a sense of empowerment to feel better.

Our dispensary staff have created a short list of simple things you can do to enhance your cleanse or just to help get you started.

1. Lemon water in the morning

Squeeze the juice of half a lemon in to a cup of warm water. This activates the liver, it acts as a diuretic to help eliminate toxins, and alkalines the body.

2. Dry skin brush

This accelerates toxin elimination, enhances lymphatic flow, and stimulates circulation.

3. Epsom salt bath

This will assist your body in eliminating toxins, as well as absorbing the minerals and nutrients from the bath.

4. Light to moderate exercise, saunas

Exercise stimulates blood flow and circulation. Perspiring helps to eliminate toxins.

5. Green Drinks

The juice from green vegetables alkalinzes the body and can support liver and kidney function.

6. Drink plenty of filtered water and add electrolytes

Being properly hydrated aids in the elimination of of toxins. Electrolytes are required for proper cell functioning.

7. Massage

This encourages movement of circulation and the lymphatic system.

8. Castor oil packs on the abdomen

By positioning the pack over the liver, it will help with lymph fluid production. The lymphatic system then helps collect and eliminate cellular waste. More on this in an upcoming blog.

9. Deep breathing exercises

Deep rhythmic breathing acts as a pump for the circulation system and aids in relaxation.

10. Yoga/Meditation/Stretching

These activities aid in stress relief, improving immunity and can physically aid in eliminating toxins.
