For our own body to perform to its maximum potential, toxins need to be flushed out.

Foods for Natural Detoxification

Some of the worst culprits for causing build up of toxins in our system include:
*Salty foods which cause fluid retention and puffiness.
*Foods that contain refined sugar causing increased blood sugar levels.
*Alcohol and caffeine which cause dehydration and lead to sluggish Liver function.

For our own body to perform to its maximum potential, toxins need to be flushed out. Fluid intake alone will not help. To purify our system, it is essential to restore essential Vitamins and Minerals. This can be achieved by following a regimen of fruit juices combined with healthy and balanced diet. Select foods with high water content like cucumber, celery, lettuce, etc. Grapefruits are good metabolic stimulants; grapes are high in potassium (essential in maintaining normal Kidney functions), bananas and avocados digest slowly, thus helping to maintain blood sugar in healthy range.

Foods to include for detoxification:
*Fruits like grapes, apples, grapefruit, citric fruits, berries, bananas, etc
*Fruit juice like watermelon juice, orange juice, amla (Indian gooseberry) juice
*Vegetables like carrots, bitter gourd, tomatoes, spinach, cucumber, onions, broccoli, cauliflower, etc
*Clear vegetable soup
*Beans and lentils like chickpeas, kidney beans, black eyed beans, etc
*Sprouted pulses
* Flaxseed and sprouted fenugreek seeds
*Oats
*Brown rice
*Live natural yoghurt
*Fresh buttermilk
*Virgin olive oil and natural vinegar
*Garlic, ginger and fresh herbs like parsley, mint, coriander, etc
*Spices like cinnamon, cumin seeds, ground black pepper, etc
*Green tea or herbal tea containing basil, lemon grass,etc.
*Water - at least 2 liters a day.
