A reader recently asked a good question, she said,” I’m thinking about starting a detoxification as I have been eating out a lot and often have to eat out with smokers for business and since lately I have had a bloated stomach and have also been feeling loaded down with fatigue what should I do to detox myself from this?
Well, of course the first thing to do would be to avoid smokers altogether but since most of the time you do not have a choice a detoxification will be beneficial. There are various ways you could detox and set your body systems going right again. It could be done with herbs, with fruit and vegetable cocktails, nutritional supplements or through hydrotherapy.
Supplementing your diet with dandelion and milk thistle may be helpful in your detoxification program. These herbs have the power to regenerate new liver cells through protein synthesis and repair damage and can also help eliminate toxins and protect the liver.
The herb dandelion enhances the flow of bile and thus dramatically improves conditions such as bile duct inflammation, liver congestion and gallstones. Numerous scientific studies have shown that the herb milk thistle improves liver function by cleansing the liver of dangerous toxins, as well as stimulating the formation of new liver cells.
Since you are exposed to cigarette smoke, you should eat more fruits and vegetables that contain lots of antioxidants such as beta-carotene, vitamins C and E, selenium, zinc and alpha lipoic acid.
Spirulina also aids the body to eliminate heavy metals from the bloodstream, strengthen the immune system and improve gastrointestinal and digestive health. Most notably, spirulina is 65-71 per cent complete protein, with all essential amino acids and other nutrients in perfect balance.
You will also improve digestion and digestive health with probiotics and digestive enzymes. Recent clinical studies have shown that probiotics have potential in the treatment of clinical conditions as well as the management of early allergic diseases by reinforcing gut mucosal barrier functions and inhibiting the growth of many harmful bacteria.
I hope that this answer not only our readers question but also many others out there as well and by paying attention and following these simple suggestion you should be able to feel a whole lot better soon.
