Trying out the foot detox at work. I am all about detoxing lately. Especially after very stressful summer😬 I figured I need to detox all that stress...ha! According to the color of the water this correlates with joints and muscles...yep I feel it!
What are toxins? These can range from chemicals in the foods we eat (think pesticides and GMO) to the products we use on our bodies (fragrance is a classic example of this- did you know that “fragrance” consists of a lot of different chemicals that do not have to be disclosed in products and can be under the label of fragrance?) to EMF radiation from our wireless devices.
No one is immune to the toxic load of modern life but there are ways to help support the natural detox pathways in the body which can lead to some major benefits- increased energy, better skin, improved sleep, weight loss, reduced inflammation. Who doesn’t want that?
Here are some ways to support detoxing:
👉Infrared sauna - these do not get as hot as regular saunas, instead these heat the tissues from within-
👉Exercise - besides making you sweat, exercise also increases lipolysis (breakdown of fat tissue) therefore releasing toxins stored in the fat tissue.
👉Activated charcoal to bind toxins- just don’t take this with other supplements as it can also bind to the good stuff too. This is a good one to take when doing saunas or exercising.
👉Glutathione to protect your cells- this is a powerful anti oxident that also supports liver enzymes that break down toxins- opt for a liposomal glutathione supplement that makes it through the stomach.
👉Cryotherapy to support mitochondria- these work well to reduce inflammation in the body. These also help burn fat.
👉Ionic foot detox bath- this is said to pull toxins out of the body through the feet. The ions in the foot bath water hold a charge that binds the toxins similar to magnets. The color of the water represents the areas detoxing.
👉Dry brushing- doing this daily helps support the lymphatic system and flushing out toxins. Always brush towards the heart.
