This time of year, people are already planning their post-holiday detox and cleanse. While I fully support all plans to detox, there is no need to wait or to only do it once a year. There are simple ways to detox your body every day, on the go or at home. Don’t let your body get so bogged down by toxins that you need a deep cleanse (that then might come with some unpleasant detox symptoms). An easy and delicious way to detoxify from anywhere is with teas. I’m recommending Pukka Tea, more on that below. Hover over the image below to shop Pukka Tea!
This past long weekend, I took the kiddos up to Big Bear Lake for a much needed break. I’ll tell you something – detoxing is not just about the physical body. We also need to detox mentally from stress and exhaustion. I shared on Instagram last week that I’ve been feeling a little off… in a funk basically. It was the culmination of a lot of things, but mostly being stuck inside the house too much, homeschooling, momming and working. I’m the type of person who gets sad when stuck indoors for too long. I knew the prescription I needed was a few days in a cabin in the woods.
I first headed to Walmart to stock up on all of our needed supplies, Pukka Detox and Pukka Turmeric Glow teas at the top of the list.
A few cold mornings with Pukka Detox Tea, a few days of outdoor exploring and a few nights of board games by the fire was just what I needed. I felt completely restored afterwards and my peace is back. I came back home ready to dive back into homeschool, back into work and back into all the house projects we currently have going. So remember to not ignore your need to detox mentally and spiritually – it is key!
Let’s dive into the physical detoxing tips! All of these can be part of your daily detox routine whether you are at home or traveling, so no excuses. Add one in at a time and experience the release and peace that comes from detoxifying your body. Of course, the first tip is to stop re-toxing your body. Toxins are all around us unfortunately, but you can control what you eat (no more processed foods) and what you put on your body (check out those ingredients in your beauty products).
ways to daily detox at home or on the go
Oil pulling is the simple process of swishing oil in your mouth for about 20 minutes. The chemical reaction between the oil and your saliva literally pulls bacterial toxins out of the depths of your mouth. It not only affects the health of your mouth, but your entire body! Use organic coconut oil and if you don’t like the taste, just add a drop of therapeutic-grade essential oil. The clove essential oil is ideal as it has been shown to slow decalcification!
hydrate and flush
Start the day by flushing your body with plenty of filtered water. Add lemon juice (or therapeutic grade lemon essential oil) and apple cider vinegar to stimulate the liver and gallbladder. This will get your digestive system moving.
Dry brushing is one of my favorite practices as it increases circulation, which is invigorating! I like to dry brush in the morning before my shower. It helps the body detoxify by stimulating the lymphatic system (the sewer system in your body that holds toxins) and gets them dumping out toxins.
hot cold showers
Contrast showers are considered hydrotherapy and they are a very powerful detox tool. For every 2-3 minutes of hot showering, turn the knob to COLD for 30 seconds. Then return back to hot and repeat. This type of showering stimulates the lymphatic system and gets it filtering out toxins. It also improves circulation and wakes you up better than a shot of espresso!
break a sweat
When your body sweats, it is also pushing toxins out. High intensity workouts are ideal, but any quick burst of exercise that gets your heart pumping helps! Other great options: infrared saunas, hot yoga, steam rooms.
I drink tea from the moment I wake up to the moment I go to sleep. Teas are a powerful resource for healing and detoxification. Choose quality teas with 100% organic herbs. This is key. You don’t need to slam the tea all at once, either. It is most beneficial to sip on tea throughout the day.
why Pukka Tea
Pukka Tea is a 100% organic herbal tea that offers powerful healing and detoxification. They have 7 families of teas: energy, digestive, turmeric, cleansing, immunity, relax and women’s. I suggest trying a few teas as I love them all! I’m focusing on Pukka Detox today, but I use the full range of teas now that they are available at Walmart, a convenient place for me to shop.
Pukka teas are not only better for you, but they are also better for the planet. Pukka’s mission is to connect people with the power of plants to make a positive impact on their health, while improving the health of our planet. Their practices are sustainable and their focus is always on reducing the carbon footprint.
For daily, delicious detoxing, I love Pukka Detox. I also recommend Pukka Turmeric Glow as turmeric is the king of reducing inflammation. The build up of toxins in our bodies, in our lymphatic system and digestive system causes inflammation. And since it is believed that inflammation is the root of all disease, we need to be ingesting as much anti-inflammatory herbs as we can! I suggest both of these teas, throughout the day while focusing on a detox plan. Pukka Three Ginger is another awesome option (tastes SO GOOD) for anti-inflammatory help.
I like to end my day with Pukka Relax, which calms and soothes after busy days with chamomile, fennel and marshmallow root. I could go on and on about all the teas, but why not just try them for yourself!
