To boost the function of the body, you need to occasionally cleanse it and eliminate all the accumulated toxins. This refreshes the body, clears the skin, and rejuvenates the look.
Detoxifying the body with the help of natural juices is the best way to purify the system, and improve overall health. This will supply the body with the needed minerals and vitamins, boost the immune system, and help the digestive process.
Yet, note that you should consume organic produce only. Vegetable juices detoxify the body and improve the function of the liver, gut, kidneys, lymphatic system, lungs, and skin. They are rich in fiber so they help weight loss, regulate blood sugar levels, and energize the body.
Soup cleanses prevent diseases, fight inflammation, rejuvenate and clear the skin, and strengthen the immunity. Usually, these practices last for 1-3 days, and you should consume 5-6 soups daily
Here is how to do a healthy three-day soup cleanse:
Prepare a vegetable, miso, or bone broth, and add medicinal spices like garlic, cinnamon, ginger, turmeric, or cumin. Then, add greens like leeks, kale, spinach, zucchini, or starchy vegetables like beets, sweet potato, plantain, acorn squash, butternut squash, and parsnips.
Increase the protein intake by adding lentils, nuts, and beans, and you can also add olive oil, coconut oil, ghee, or avocado. Then, just blend all this away.
