Here are some tips to enhance your time getting sweaty in the sauna--

  • Before and after each sauna, drink 1⁄2 teaspoon Celtic sea salt in 12 ounces of purified water

Natural Ways to Detox in the New Year

Posted by Chrissy Weir on

No need to go on any crazy New Year Resolutions cleanses, these easy, natural detox solutions will have you feeling lighter and more energetic without starvation or any weird ingredients and scary side effects!

1. Drink double your weight in ounces of water per day.
Water is vital for maintaining energy levels and for flushing out toxins. For added cleansing help, add some lemon juice! Ditch the Junk

2. Ditch the Junk.
Try to incorporate fruit or veggies into every meal and snack. Meat and dairy should come from grass-fed, cows if possible & nourish your body with health fats from good sources like coconut oil, avocado's and wild caught salmon. Keep your grains whole forms and nix packaged food as much as possible.

3. Increase your fiber intake.
It’s important to get plenty of fiber so that things move along nicely. The last thing you want to do is go through the effort of eliminating only to get constipated and have these toxins sit in your body or get reabsorbed.

4. Sweat.
Moving your body is great for your health anyway, but it can also help you get rid of built-up toxins. But with the excess sweating, remember to drink lots of water to flush out toxins. Sitting in a steam room or sauna will also get you sweating out the bad stuff.
