Methods for cleansing the body

Juice fasting

The founder of this method was the American Norman Walker. Juice fasting involves the use of exclusively freshly squeezed fruit and vegetable juices (especially cabbage and beetroot - they contain natural organic chlorine salts, powerful purifiers), as well as herbal infusions. The intensity of detoxification is less than with water starvation, but still remains quite high. The constant use of only concentrated juices can lead to irritation of the intestines, and the lack of fiber (there is no plant fiber in the juice, only in the pulp) - to a deterioration in digestion.

Raw food

A raw food diet is the next method of cleansing the body of toxins and toxins, and over time it even becomes not just a diet, but a way of life. A raw food diet (as you can guess from the name) consists in the use of exclusively raw foods - they are low in calories, high in fiber, they need to be chewed for a long time, the stomach fills up quickly. But this diet has many subtleties. For example, vitamin A contained in carrots is absorbed only together with fat, therefore, carrots should be eaten with cream or vegetable oil and it is better to rub them through a grater; Plants like spinach and sorrel are rich in acids that interfere with the body's ability to absorb calcium, so it’s better to douse them with boiling water before making a salad. And be sure to include in the diet vegetables and cereals rich in protein: nuts, lentils, beans, peas, cauliflower, wheat.

Elimination diet

This is the most gentle and pleasant diet that eliminates toxins and toxins.… According to the elimination diet, you should completely avoid indigestible and allergic foods (eg tomatoes, grapefruit, peanuts, chocolate, coffee) and eat mostly organic vegetables, fruits, brown rice, beans, fish. Moreover, it is better to buy food in farmers' markets, and not in supermarkets. This diet is followed by many doctors, including the famous Dr. Alejandro Jünger. The disadvantages of the elimination diet are the high cost of quality products (important for women living in megacities) and the need to prepare breakfasts, lunches and dinners on their own.
