Cleansing Time | Blog – Health Space Clinics

Now that Spring is here, it's time for a spring clean for the body.

A dietary cleanse aims to remove toxins that have built up in the body, due to a poor diet with high amounts of processed foods, toxic environment from chemicals in cleaning and beauty products and too much alcohol, sugar and caffeine.

A few essential things to do to achieve a optimal cleanse over a 2-3 weeks period:

  • Eliminate certain foods: processed grains, processed sugar, caffeine, colours and additives
  • Reduce red meat consumption
  • Eliminate the toxins from your home: by chemical free products for your personal care and cleaning products
  • Rehydrate with plenty of water and herbal teas, at least 3 litres per day: Choose teas that will benefit your digestive systems and liver function like Dandelion root, St Mary's and green tea.
  • Load up on lots of fruits and vegetables
  • Exercise 30 min every day doing something that you enjoy.
