So you probably know that detoxification is important. But do you really know why? Or how to detox your body? When the body experiences too many toxins for the liver to clear out they begin to get stored in your fat and muscle. This causes toxins to circulate through the bloodstream and creates inflammation throughout the body. Inflammation is the leading cause of many diseases so it is crucial to focus on detoxification and lowering inflammation in the body. Here at Blooming Botanicals we love doing Functional Medicine Detoxes as a full body, mind and spirit reset. We will admit there is a time for these, but we also believe detoxing can be really easy and simple to get started! Check out our top ways to start detoxing today.

How to detox the body: Our 5 favorite ways.
6.7 million people a year die from air pollution. Using an efficient air purifier will not only detoxify your home but the air you breathe throughout the day. Not only can an air purifier remove dust, pollen, pet dander, and mold spores from the air, it can greatly reduce allergies and asthma. This is especially crucial for those living in extreme climates or urban areas where opening the windows for fresh air is few and far between. Getting an air purifier was a game changer for us. After loads of research we chose to go with the Air Doctor brand and couldn’t be happier!
A high quality water filter can remove bacteria, parasites, heavy metals and hundreds more harmful contaminants, leaving you with water that is delicious AND healthy! When we recently moved we found that we could taste the chlorine in the water. If we could taste that, what else was in there? It was like Christmas morning when we finally received our water filter and we’re never looking back. We went with the Berkey system for it’s easy of use and movability.
Recent studies show that CBD can help the liver process waste more effectively. The liver is the organ of detoxification, keeping it working properly is the key to maintaining overall health. Whether you’re looking to increase detoxification or simply support the body in maintenance after a detox program, CBD can be a great supplement to look into. Finding a CBD company that pairs its CBD with other beneficial ingredients, doesn’t add fillers or flavors, has transparent third party testing and uses high quality raw CBD material is key. Rest assured you’re covered on all of those things with Blooming Botanicals.
The skin is the largest organ of elimination, acting as a filter to the kidneys for removing toxins from the blood. What we put ON our skin matters and this begins in our shower with clean water. Use a shower filter to remove toxins that may be absorbed into the skin. This one is new to us but one of the easiest, and most affordable, option for simple detoxing. We found the Aqua Bliss to be a great option at an affordable price.
By adding minerals like magnesium and sulfate to your bathwater, it sparks a process called reverse osmosis, which literally pulls salt out of your body and dangerous toxins along with it. Taking magnesium baths can aid in the detoxification process in a soothing and enjoyable way. Likewise, It is crucial to always rinse off after a detox bath and be sure to replenish fluids and electrolytes to avoid dehydration.
In conclusion: How to detox your body.
We believe that detoxing your body can be simple, fun and very effective without being hard or restrictive. Starting small and choosing one thing to change at a time is the key to success!
Before starting any detox program, it’s crucial to consult with a healthcare professional, especially if you have underlying health conditions or are taking medications. A registered dietitian or a healthcare provider can provide guidance on safe and effective ways to support your body’s natural detoxification processes through dietary and lifestyle changes.
Remember that the human body has its own built-in mechanisms for detoxification through the liver, kidneys, and other organs. Supporting these natural processes with a balanced diet and a healthy lifestyle is often more sustainable and safe than extreme detox programs.
