Detoxification Herbs: Natural Body Cleansing Treatments

At Detox of South Florida we want our patients to live a healthy fulfilled life. Sometimes we want to write an article not strictly about alcohol rehab or drug addiction. Sometimes we want to write an article on living a healthier life apart from discussing addiction. So without further preamble here is out Natural Detoxing post.

Natural detoxification can be enhanced by the use of detoxif herbs. Each herb has specific benefits for different parts of the body. Numerous detoxifying herbs taken together will work synergistically for the best results. However, taking any one of them alone will also be beneficial for cleansing. Choose the herbs that best fit your situation.

Beneficial Detoxification Herbs

Detoxifying herbs can help cleanse the digestive system, intestinal tract, blood, and internal organs. They can be used during a pre-cleanse phase, or during natural body cleansing therapy. Always consult a qualified herbal or medical practitioner before taking detoxification herbs on your own, and never attempt to detoxify while pregnant or nursing.

  • Red Clover – Mild stimulant, antispasmodic, cleansing. With chaparral leaf, it’s one of the most widely used detoxification herbs. Well tolerated by children and the elderly, and wonderful for cleansing the respiratory system. Drink 1-2 cups of red clover tea per day for best results.

Herbal Detoxification Tea

Most all of the detoxifying herbs can be prepared in tea form, if done correctly. However, one of the most effective herbal detoxification tea recipes includes red clover and chaparral leaves. These herbs have a long history of use together as natural detoxifiers.

To make the tea, combine up to nine parts dried red clover with one part dried chaparral leaf. Add one teaspoon of this blend to a cup of boiling water and steep for 10-15 minutes. Strain, and sweeten with honey. Drink 1-2 cups daily as part of a natural body cleansing.
