Detoxing can be hard on your body and cause a wide variety of alarming side effects. After all, the substances being removed are usually pretty horrible, consisting of toxic chemicals from Teflon, vaccines, pesticide residues, pharmaceutical drugs, chemotherapy residue, heavy metals, aluminum, radiation, and even by-products from GMO foods. There are numerous detoxing agents and methods available — some more costly than others — and some producing very intense experiences with potentially dangerous side effects.However, there are several ways to remove these noxious substances gently, with kindness to your system. These techniques may take a bit longer to achieve completion; however, if you have the time and are sensitive, or just don’t like pain, one of these methods should work for you.

Pectin

Fruit pectin is probably the most gentle method of detoxing contaminants. Pectin comes from the fibrous portion of the fruit and is most commonly found in the pith of limes, lemons and other citrus fruit as well as in apples. Other sources of pectin are bananas, grapes, carrots, and cabbage. Pectin helps to release heavy metals, chemicals and other substances into the blood stream, where it binds to them and flushes them from the body. Simply eating fruit high in pectin will help to cleanse your system, or you can add a pectin product to a glass of water, organic grape juice or fresh veggie juice to speed the detox process. Beware of pectin sold in grocery stores, as some brands may contain MSG. Check health food stores for the best products.

Cilantro

The delicious culinary herb cilantro, happens to be one of the most effective and gentle detoxifiers of mercury, heavy metals and other toxic contaminants. You can buy cilantro juice at health food stores or simply include the fresh herb in your diet as pesto or seasoning to control the amount consumed and limit unwanted side effects. It’s inexpensive and works without the addition of man-made chemicals. Cilantro also possesses antibacterial and antifungal properties, quickly reducing infection and inflammation as it works to clear your system.

Chlorella

Chlorella is a single cell algae sea vegetable that grows in fresh water. Some of the best cholrella reserves have come from Japan; however, use caution when buying Japanese chlorella due to possible exposure to radiation from Fukushima. Chlorella is an easy-to-digest superfood best known for being able to remove mercury and other heavy metals from the cells. Too much chlorella can produce side effects — mostly in the digestive tract — where it works best to bind to mercury, eliminating it. Start with the lowest quantity and work up slowly for a gentle detox.

Wheatgrass

Juicing fresh produce and grasses such as wheat or barley grass provides an excellent way to remove toxins from the system. Wheatgrass is high in nutritional content, and provides vitamins, minerals and all nine essential amino acids. Wheatgrass can be a powerful detox, so start slowly with only a small amount of juice to keep it gentle — 1/2 ounce a day — and work up to avoid symptoms.

Using gentle detoxing products requires that you repeat treatments over a period of time until all symptoms have cleared. Side effects may include nausea, vomiting, muscle aches and pains, dizziness and fatigue. Additionally, detoxing can cause a flare-up in your condition temporarily. It’s just the toxins leaving your system and should pass shortly. If side effects are severe, reduce the quantity of whatever you’re using to detox. If the symptoms continue, stop and consult your natural health practitioner for further instructions.

Your body is one big detox machine. Every single body system has a detox organ, and when your body is functioning optimally, you will be removing toxins from your body at all times.

Your detox organs include your liver, your colon, your lungs, and even your skin. If you feel like enhancing your bodies ability to remove wastes, without taking on a full blown detox, here are some quick tips for ways to help detox your body every day.

1. Drink lukewarm water with lemon juice first thing in the morning. This will cause your gallbladder to spasm, pushing bile through your liver, which will kick start your bowels to release. This is an awesome way to kick start your main internal detox organs, first thing. Bonus points for drinking at least another liter or more throughout the rest of your day.

2. Have a green drink – green juice and green smoothies will both help to oxygenate your system, flood your cells with nutrients, and nourish your organs. Green juices and smoothies will help your red blood cells work better (by providing them with oxygen, they will more effectively be able to carry nutrients to your cells, and toxins away from them). There is no end to the benefits of green drinks, and they are something that you can enjoy on a daily basis to give your body a boost.

3. Dry Skin Brushing – A dry skin brush is inexpensive, and to brush your whole body can take as little as 10 minutes. You will be stimulating your lymphatic system as you brush, which is a very important detox system. Your lymph system deals a lot with killing off pathogens, and the better it works, the better you will feel.

4. Do 20 minutes of physical activity. Getting moving will help to cleanse the skin through sweating, it will help to move your lymph fluid, and it will even help to stimulate your bowels. All of these things help you to get those toxins out of your body faster. This burst of activity will also set you up with happy chemicals called endorphins that will make you feel better for the rest of your day.

5. Stress less – I know this may not seem like it has anything to do with detox, but stress is one of the most taxing things for our bodies. Also keep in mind that when you are stressed, your body will be in fight or flight mode, instead of being in healing, and therefore cleansing mode. Take time to sit and breath deeply. Write in a journal. Go for a walk in nature. Sit and meditate. Do whatever you need to do to take your stress levels down at least once a day and you will feel better for it!
