More and more people agree that, after years of visiting numerous doctors, they cannot say why a series of conditions that almost always come together, such as: episodes of mental confusion and fatigue; chronic digestion problems; inflammation and pain in muscles and bones constant, are always present, however, the following cleansing steps can help you remove all that in a holistic and functional way.

The problem that lies in these health representatives is that they cannot see the body as a whole, and they separate it.

They end up assigning your case to several doctors who, again, it is not usual for them to see your problems as a whole and follow the constant that yours is stress or poor digestion and treat you in a fragmented way.

However, there is a medicine called functional medicine that is currently becoming more and more known because it recognizes this series of ailments as a whole and treats them in the same way: our body is inflamed, our body hurts chronically, it has intestinal problems, it is in You are constantly fatigued, depressed and anxious and you need to perform cleansing steps in unity to regain health .

All this, in a feedback with the daily stress compromising our glands and other systems of our body that need to be seen jointly and not separately, and above all treated in a way that helps this cycle to be healed as a whole not only to through medications, but in a holistic way with special diet, supplementation and exercises.

These conditions have a particular variant: they almost always lead to autoimmune diagnoses that can compromise the thyroid, joints, organs and mental health.

But once treated with functional medicine, all of this can be reversed without the need for lifelong medications that contribute much more to your decline due to how highly damaging they are.

5 cleansing steps to maximize health without drugs

If you’re looking to change your diet, digestive health, and long-term immunity, the following total body cleanse is the way to go.

Follow the principle that all diseases originate from the improper elimination of toxins through the digestive system if you want to maximize your overall health.

Here are 5 cleansing steps to maximize adrenal, immune, digestive, and thyroid health.

1. Eat real, whole foods

One of the most important cleansing steps you can offer your body is, eat real food if you want to maximize your health. A clean diet consists of foods that are organic – as much as possible -, grown without hormones and pesticides, are not processed, and do not contain refined sugars.

Read the labels of everything you buy, if it has more than four ingredients and contains things that you are not familiar with, it is not worth eating. If it’s done in a lab, it takes a lab to digest it. If it has a longer shelf life than you, please don’t eat it.

Buy outside the store, where you can find fruits and vegetables, nuts, whole seeds. These are wonderful super foods that will give you natural energy.

Challenge yourself for a week on a purely plant-based diet that is gluten , caffeine and alcohol free Keep a journal of how you feel. You will feel lighter, more radiant and less tired. [1]

2. More alkaline to maximize health

To function optimally, the human body must maintain a pH of 7.35 to 7.45. However, the Standard American Diet (SAD) is very acidic.

Animal protein, gluten, sugars, fried foods, processed foods, foods grown with hormones, antibiotics and pesticides, emotional and environmental stress are all acidic. They all break down into acid in the body.

An alkaline diet fights inflammation . Start small: drink a green juice a day, it will fill you with energy. A diet rich in organic alkaline vegetables, green juices and smoothies, and supplements such as chlorophyll, chlorella, and spirulina will support strong immune and digestive health.

Drinking hot lemon water throughout the day stimulates the gastrointestinal tract and peristalsis – waves of muscle contractions that keep things moving.

An alkaline diet is one of the cleansing steps that are necessary in your goal of improving your health. Lemons and limes are rich in minerals and vitamins and help loosen the ama, or toxins in the digestive tract. Contrary to belief, lemons are a very alkaline food, as citric acid does not create acidity in the body once metabolized. [two]

3. Opt for natural and organic skin care

Like everything you consume, everything you put on your skin either gets assimilated or eliminated. Creams and perfumes with chemicals are very taxing on your big body, and many of them contain hormone-like substances that can disrupt human hormones and cause a number of health problems.

4. Detoxify your home

Ingredients in common household products have been linked to asthma, cancer, reproductive disorders, hormonal disorders, and neurotoxicity, and we are routinely exposed to these ingredients, increasing our risk for these health problems.

Chronic exposure adds to the body’s “toxic load,” which is the number of chemicals stored in your tissues at any given time.

The toxins and gases in cleaning products mistreat the skin on your hands and cause headaches, and bathroom cleaners with ammonia and bleach can cause nausea and dizziness.

Triclosan, an ingredient in antibacterial hand soap, is an endocrine disruptor in the human body and is released into the environment when you wash your hands with it. When triclosan is broken down, it turns into dioxins that are known carcinogens.

There are three simple ingredients that are going to change the way you approach cleaning – vinegar , baking soda, and borax. You can even get creative with essential oils like tea tree and lavender that have antiseptic properties and are great for freshening the toilet, shower, countertops, and floors.

5. Sweat

Make it your priority to sweat every day. You can do yoga, detox baths, saunas, and jogging or cycling. The Yoga detoxifies the lymphatic system, strengthens the immune system and supports digestive health. When you are on your mat, you realize everything about his body.

You are constantly cleansing your body as you squeeze out toxins. By taking deep breaths , you clear your lungs ; focus on the mind and the body relaxes and lets go of tension.

Stress charges our immunity and digestion, so a regular practice of yoga or other exercise that you like to do and helps you relax, provides a great benefit for the body.

Detox bath in your cleansing steps

End the weekend with a relaxing detox bath with Himalayan sea salt, baking soda and fresh ginger root. The Ginger improves the detoxification process because it has anti – mucous, it is a natural decongestant, and opens the pores.

Adding sliced ​​fresh ginger root to hot bath water will make you sweat profusely while in the bath, which is exactly what we go for to clear congestion.

That is why a detox bath with ginger and Himalayan sea salt is a remedy to remove a cold or infection from your system.


After your bath, take out your mat and do some restorative yoga poses for another 30 minutes while you continue to release toxins through sweat. After the sweating is over, rinse off.

Sitting in a sauna bath also helps to relax the muscles and flush toxins through the skin. Infrared sauna sessions improve circulation and internal congestion, promote the elimination of heavy metals, radioactive particles and other toxins and improve oxygenation of the blood.

Remember to drink plenty of water after sauna or detox bath sessions to help replace fluids lost through sweating.

Final words

Be aware of what you are putting in and on your body, what you use to cleanse your living space, make room to sweat out remaining toxins, and cleanse stress through breathing exercises.

Work on incorporating each of these steps into your life, and remember, small, gradual steps are the way to go.

Before you know it, you’ll be a bright, clean green machine. This discipline will become second nature. And never, never, never give up.
