Detoxify the Body – Look and Feel Younger

Stress, in the form of erratic and irregular, diets, refined and denatured foods, sedentary and deskbound routines, no exercise, exposure to environmental chemicals and pollutants, and emotional upheavals is fairly common these days.

While the body does have an innate mechanism to flush out built up toxins, it can not eradicate a never-ending and ceaseless attack by refined foods, aerated drinks, caffeinated beverages, fatty food, processed and denatured foods, an inactive lifestyle, air pollutants and psychological stress. As a result, over a period of time, the body gets packed with lethal toxins, and the gastro-intestinal system can not do away with these poisons effectively.

This build-up of toxins can have serious ramifications on the body. They assault the immune system, weaken it, and increase the susceptibility to infections. They also cause a range of abdominal disturbances ranging from dyspepsia, constipation, flatulence and bloating, poor assimilation of nutrients, obesity, weariness, depression and reduced concentration levels. Sooner or later, grim consequences, such as, ulcers, diabetes, hypertension, atherosclerosis, and cancer develop.

Foods that detoxify the body

Thankfully, there’s an array of natural healing foods that helps the body purge out the deadly toxic wastes, and also supports and encourages the body’s organs of elimination in the detoxification process.

  • Garlic: Garlic is truly an incredible medicinal herb. The compound allicin in the herb is responsible for all the remarkable health benefits that garlic offers. Garlic has a strong anti-microbial activity. Allicin has proved to be effective not only against influenza, colds, intestinal bacteria and parasites, and Candida yeast, but also against powerful pathogens. It detoxifies the body, throwing out all accumulated waste matter, and leaves you feeling revitalized.
  • Fennel seeds: Fennel seeds are a great source of dietary fibre. They are an intestinal anti-spasmodic and help relieve intestinal cramps and spasms, especially, spasms associated with dyspepsia. Additionally, fennel seeds expel wind and prevent abdominal bloating. Fennel is also high in anti-cancer compounds, thus, thwarting an attack by the free radicals.
  • Sweet Potato: Sweet potatoes have a distinctive root storage protein, which exerts strong anti-oxidant effects. These proteins, along with the high vitamin C and carotene content, make the sweet potato a valuable food to boost anti-oxidants in the body. More over, research claims that this root vegetable erases wrinkles and makes you look years younger.
  • Broccoli: Broccoli is the most nutrient-dense detox foods. Chockfull of antioxidants, this cruciferous vegetable wields a favorable effect on the gut. It checks a wide range of gastric disorders such as gastritis, peptic ulcers, acid reflux, and dyspepsia. It helps rid the body of H. Pylori, a microbe that is responsible for the occurrence of peptic ulcer and stomach cancer.

Benefits of Psyllium Seeds for detoxifying the body

Psyllium seeds are powerful natural laxatives. They add bulk to the feces and speed up their expulsion from the gut. Normal peristalsis, regular bowel movements and a healthy intestinal tone is restored. Psyllium seeds tackle excessive flatulence, abdominal distension, obstinate constipation and ineffectual and unsatisfactory bowel motion successfully. They are a potent, water soluble, high fibre, source, that has been decidedly beneficial in cleansing old, accumulated built-up wastes from the bowel. Also, psyllium seeds help eradicate candida toxins from the body, by binding to the toxins and excreting them out.

Benefits of detoxifying foods

Incorporating these foods in to the daily diet will have numerous health benefits. A detoxified gut, promotes cleansing of the kidneys, the liver, and the blood stream. Also, the immune system gets revved up, reducing the body’s vulnerability to infectious agents. What‘s more, the body feels rejuvenated, renewed and a lot younger.

If you still have a few more questions, take a look at our FAQ’s below:

  • Research studies on addiction treatment have shown that some alcohol and substance addiction treatment and follow-up procedures are more successful than others. At Detox of South Florida, we emphasize on using the best approaches in alcohol or drug detox.

  • Our goal is to ensure that all our patients regain their physical and mental states of health. Our treatment is therefore tailored to address each patient’s unique conditions. The treatment involves a combination of detoxification procedures such as opiate detox, alcohol detox, and heroin detox, just to mention a few, with other intervention procedures such as group and individual therapy, relapse prevention education, after-care planning, and in-house completion programs aimed at ensuring long-term sobriety and prevention of relapses.

  • Every patient has his or her unique type and level of addiction which is why the treatment period will normally vary from one individual to another. While some patients go through a 30-day rehab program, others will require a 60-day or 90-day program to recover from alcohol or drug addiction. The time it takes to recover will depend on the assessment report provided by the assigned medical professional who evaluates your case.

  • As the best rehab in Florida, we believe a relapse should not be viewed as a failure but rather as a sign to help you get back on track by making necessary adjustments to your treatment.

  • Our rates generally depend on the services provided. The overall cost will be determined by factors such as professional treatment fees, facilities, food, and utilities.

  • Unlike other addiction treatment centers across the country, at Detox of South Florida, we take your treatment and recovery process very seriously. Your treatment against addiction is a comprehensive process that may be affected by unwarranted interruptions. All visitations must, therefore, be approved well in advance by the treating therapist. We do this to ensure that your safety, focus on recovery, and stability are maintained at all times. The only visitors allowed are significant members of your family and close friends.
