Natural Remedies for Detoxification

Doctors all around the world are raving about the health benefits of detoxification.  Ridding the body of toxins and other waste that could potentially be causing harm to your body is highly recommended.  With so many detoxification programs available, it can be difficult distinguishing which one is safe and effective for your life style.  Before you choose any one “program,” consider detoxifying your body naturally.  The following are natural remedies for helping get your body back on track.

  • Eliminate the “bad” from your body.  If you want to get rid of the toxins in your body, you must give up the bad habits that are putting the toxins there in the first place.  Caffeine, alcohol, saturated fat, and refined sugar are all major contributors to the toxin level in your body.  If you are looking to detoxify, get rid of the bad habits first!  You won’t be able to fully detoxify until you are eliminating the source of the toxins.
  • Reduce your stress level.  Stress has a huge impact on the wellness of your body.  To naturally detoxify, you must reduce your stress level. While is virtually impossible to live stress free, you can take steps to maintain a safe stress level. Too much stress is bad for your body and will not help you get rid of the unwanted toxins. Consider using yoga or meditation as a way to get your stress level down.
  • Drink more water.  Water is the cleansing agent for your body. If you aren’t drinking enough water, you can’t eliminate the toxins from your body.  Drink the recommended 8 glasses of water daily to help your body get ready for the detoxification process.  The more water your drink, the healthier your skin and body will be.  Carry water with you at all times of the day in an effort to detoxify.  Stay away from sodas and sugared drinks during the process.  Focus on putting the “natural” into your body and eliminating the unnatural.
  • Get your sweat on! Sweating is a great way to get rid of toxins that are built up in your body.  Begin an exercise program that will encourage you to sweat. If exercising isn’t your thing, consider sitting in a sauna for 10 minutes a day. This will help open your pores and release the chemicals that are built up under your skin.  Sweating is a healthy part of a daily lifestyle. The more you sweat, the better off your body will be.
  • Drink green tea.  Green tea is very healthy for your body and will get the detoxification process rolling.  It is full of antioxidants that will serve to help eliminate unwanted toxins.  It is also known as an energy booster.  Get a two for one deal by drinking plenty of natural green tea. If you don’t have a taste for the actual tea, find it in capsule form.  There are too many great benefits to not add green tea to your daily diet.
  • Eat a healthy diet.  A diet rich in fruits and vegetables will also help you detoxify. Not only through the nutrient rich food, but also through the high fiber.  Fiber helps keep your bowel movements regular and allows waste to flow freely through your body. Toxins are released into your body when you are backed up for a period of time. Eating a healthy diet is essential to detoxification.  Many people choose to go on an all fruit and vegetable fast in an effort to get rid excess waste in the body.  If you choose to do an all veggie and fruit fast, do not do this process longer than a few days as you will quickly lose muscle and other nutrients that are essential to a healthy body.  Be very cautious when choosing to fast in the detoxification process.
  • Don’t use chemical based household cleaners.  Using these products can actually put chemical into your body that you are trying to get rid of.  For the best results in detoxifying, stay far away from chemical based household cleaners. Opt for natural cleaning products.

If you are looking to take advantage of the detoxification process, use the tips above to help you get started.  Detoxification can improve your health. Get started today!

A Closer Look at Depression in Men

3 Comments

Under the bravado and macho exterior of our male population lies a hidden truth, that men too fall prey to bouts of depression. This mental health problem affects an average of 1 in every 7 American men, yet this problem has remained to be unrecognized and unaccepted in the realm of male machismo. But with the revelations in light of Heath Ledger’s death, Owen Wilson’s attempted suicide, along with a long list of depressed celebrities, depression has become an open problem and a source of great concern.

Depression in fact affects both men and women at any given age, though how they respond and manifest this disorder may differ as men often exhibit the physical symptoms of depression while women delve on the emotional aspects. Recent depression news revealed that 40% of middle aged men are suffering from depression, significantly higher than women who are pegged at only 25%. Depression in men is also harder to recognize as men are not prone to be expressive of their emotions and as such it is essential that we learn to diagnose these depression symptoms to help the men that we love recognize and seek immediate help to counter this disorder.

Depression in men, especially when left undetected, can lead to a string of other social and health problems ranging from loss of work, to divorce, as well as cardiovascular problems and suicide. As a matter of fact, 80% of all recorded suicides are men and most likely caused by undiagnosed depression.

Identifying Male Depression

Men and women exhibits depression in a highly different manner, while men resort to acting out their moods, women turns to verbal outbursts. According to the latest research, the most common signs of depression in our Adam population includes increased anger and irritability, reduced ego, constant blaming of others, paranoia, restlessness, compulsive behaviors, insomnia, feelings of self disgust, becomes overly conscious and controlling, turns to alcohol and substance abuse for temporary relief and violent behavior.

Overcoming Depression

As men are more likely to deny that they have a severe mental condition, it can prove to be much more difficult and complex to diagnose and treat, experts say that it take 3 health professionals to cure 1 depressed man. Medical experts also agree that men do not respond well to traditional anti depressants and medication of which may even lead to more serious depression issues. Most experts suggests regular exercise, healthy diet and a strong social support system to help ease the treatment and recovery process for depressed men.
