While there is a time and place for stringent detoxes, Dr. Holly Lucille explains there are also simple ways you can perform daily detox activities.Toxic exposure is at an all-time high.In fact, recent research uncovered that blood from current babies' umbilical cords has been found to contain more than 300 chemicals.While there is a time and place for stringent detoxes, Holly Lucille, ND (aka: Dr. Holly), explains there are also simple ways you can perform daily detox activities.  Dry skin brushing. Supports your lymph system, which essentially removes all the "junk" from your body. Brush towards the heart for five minutes with a natural bristle brush; aim for twice a day (but at the very least, a few times a week). Epsom salt bath. Easy, cost effective, relaxing. Two cups of salt and try for 20 minutes.  Oil pulling. Not only effective for decreasing plaque and other bacterial organisms, but it can also help whiten teeth safely and naturally. Journal for a few minutes each day. Emotionally and mentally cleansing.  Warm water with fresh lemon juice in the morning. Helps you stay hydrated and stimulates digestion. Dehydration can manifest as both hunger and fatigue.  Reduce exposure to toxins. Try to eat organic, local and seasonal as much as possible. The Environmental Working Group (ewg.org) is a great resource.  Use healthy spices and herbs.  Increase fiber intake. Fiber binds to toxins and helps to eliminate them.  Cleanses can be effective at times, but make sure you're doing it in a healthy way. You might want to enlist the help of a healthcare practitioner who is skilled in detoxification to guide you and help personalize the approach.Dr. Holly also discusses her podcast, Mindful Medicine (also on RadioMD).
