28 Simple & Natural Ways to Detox your Body

Forget all the rules that you have heard through the years about how much water is enough. Eight glasses in the minimum, so it’s time to dramatically increase your intake if you want the best health benefits. Water should be your drink of choice and should be your choice with meals, as well as before and after. You will see some of the health benefits readily and enjoy some of the longer term ones down the line.

5. Replace the morning coffee with green tea:

A little caffeine is okay, but you do want to be careful about how much you take in throughout a day or week. You also want to be careful about where you get your caffeine from and how much you take in at any one time. Though an occasional cup of coffee is fine, if you are after detoxifying the body, then you want to change things up a bit.

Green tea offers important antioxidants that our body needs in the most natural form. It offers a slight caffeine boost that can help to get you jump started n the morning, just as coffee does. So if you choose to replace your morning cup of coffee with a cup of green tea you still get a caffeine boost and some actual health benefits as well.

Learning to detox the body doesn’t have to be complicated, but it does mean that you will have to make healthy choices that really work for you. This means that you will have to make some adjustments, but they are well worth it.

If you can lean to embrace green tea as one example you are getting a healthy boost of caffeine that naturally helps with detox and gives you some very important antioxidants you need to stay healthy in the short and long term.

Switch from Coffee to Green Tea

6. Get in more exercise and sweat it out:

We all know that exercise is an essential part of a truly healthy lifestyle and that it helps with weight loss—but there is much more to it than that! When it comes to naturally and effectively cleansing the body, exercise can be a great option to turn to. Though many people don’t think of exercise in this manner, it can be what helps you with the cleansing process dramatically.

When you are exercising you are not only helping the body to shed fat and excess weight, but you are also helping to get rid of toxins that may build up. As you sweat these toxins can come out and therefore the cleansing is taking place. Not only that but you are also helping with digestion, circulation, and to keep the organs functioning as they should with a challenging fitness regimen.

The perspiration, the breathing, and the movement all help the body to achieve fitness and also to get rid of the bad and potentially harmful substances that have built up over time.

If you opt to make exercise a regular function in your life, then you can assist the body in the cleansing process on a regular basis. So sweat it out at the gym, not only because it makes you feel good and releases the best hormones, but also because it can help you to naturally cleanse in the process.

7. Try acupuncture for a truly balanced body:

This is one of the best forms of cleansing, but few of us know much about it. Acupuncture is a part of holistic medicine that may help to naturally heal some of your biggest health problems, while also helping you to cleanse any blockages of toxins in the body.

Here’s how it works:

-You may have heard of it but felt unsure about trying it. Even if you have never heard of it, welcoming acupuncture into your life can be a real lifesaver. Not only can this ancient practice help you with ailments or medical conditions, but it can be an excellent way to naturally cleanse the body.

-This practice has been around for centuries and is a main component in Eastern world medicine. As a patient lies down, small needless are placed at the surface of the skin in areas that may be blocked or causing pain or discomfort. Though it may not sound like it, this can be a very relaxing process and show results almost instantly.

-It’s important to go to a licensed acupuncturist who really knows what they are doing, and when you do you will love what this does for you. Many have sought out acupuncture for everything from fertility issues to sinus problems to injuries.

– It works by helping to release zones in the body that may be blocked due to toxins or other harmful substances that can contribute to health problems.
This is a holistic practice and highly effective. You will feel better almost instantly and when it comes to a natural cleanse, this can be one of the best tools out there.

-Take the time to find somebody that you trust and then welcome acupuncture into your life for an excellent way of cleansing, purifying, and getting rid of what ails you in your health and your life.


8. Eat more fiber in its most natural form:

You’ve probably heard it time and time again that you need to be eating more fiber in your diet. Not only is this part of a healthy diet that will contribute to weight loss, but it’s also an essential way of cleansing the body in its most natural form. Fiber can be an excellent supplement for a variety of reasons, and cleansing is just one of them.

Our bodies, particularly our digestive tracts, tend to hold onto substances that enter after time. This may be toxins, preservatives from foods that we eat, or just waste that is not being properly disposed of by the body. Whatever the cause, the end result is that you may feel bloated, weighed down, unusually tired, and therefore health problems may result out of this.

    Quick question on #26, you list these recipes here and say it’s good to do this cleanse once a month but my question is: Is this recipe a full day cleanse? Is this, something you should be making and drinking all day every hour/every couple hours or just drink once during the day and eat normally the rest of that day per month?

    • Live Peachy says:


      The article isn’t terribly clear as to what kind of cleanses they are. The first one does specify once a month on an empty stomach, I would assume you should wait a few hours at least before resuming your usual diet. The second one specifies plenty of water following the cleanse, and allows for light eating a while afterward. However, being unclear or not, I would still consult with a nutritionist about taking on any kind of cleanse as they may have better recommendations to suit your personal needs.

      Hope this helps!

      • teasa says:

        I agree with so much of these natural remedies. I’m sick tho with sle lupus. And now in process trying to quit smoking. However I’m unsure what you mean by cleansing the colon. So many has recommended organic coffee enimas. Being on fixed income some things are hard to do. But am taking garlic. Started lemon water again. N few others u named but what about colon tho,? What do you suggest. Thank you and god bless

  2. Rachel McCabe says:

    Since the ‘Monsanto Protection Act’ I have been boycotting any unknown foods in my family’s diet. I feel great! I have no more symptoms of IBS and increased energy. My husband, not so much. He is so use to toxic foods that his digestive tract is on the frits with the introduction to pure foods. Do you have any suggestions on how I can help him? A cleanse or detox of some kind?

    • Janice says:

      This is from a healing response. Unless it is truly bad he should just get through it. Of course by now it’s a moot point. This happens when people go to an all raw food diet as well. Hope he is feeling better now.

    This is one of the best detox pages I have read thank you for sharing I look forward to reading more of your articles.

  6. Andrea says:

    It is not a good idea to recommend people choose home remedies for illness rather than antibiotics. If someone needs antibiotics, they have a bacterial infection. Home remedies are great for a lot of things, but they cannot replace antibiotics. Some bacterial infections can lead to death if left untreated.

    • Nola says:

      Antibiotics are sadly overused in this country. In many (if not most) cases, an otherwise healthy person can fight off an infection without them. The article doesn’t advise that no one EVER use antibiotics. They should be a last resort, though. Every time you use them you weaken your body’s natural defenses and throw it out of balance. Most people could take the time to truly learn their body’s signals instead of running to a clinic for antibiotics “just in case”. Yes, there are times when they are necessary, but if you know your own body you will know when you are out of your league dealing with an infection.

      I’m not a medical professional, but I am 41 years old and haven’t had antibiotics in almost twenty years. I don’t get flu shots, either, and I work with thousands of people every flu season. Our bodies are stronger than we think!

    • Julie says:

      I think a home remedy before antibiotics is a good idea. If it works then you don’t have to take the antibiotics and risk building immunity to them. Obviously if the home remedy dsnt work then people would notice a still present infection and hopefully seek alternative treatments.

      • kledja says:

        Personally i have never taken an antibiotic in my life, usually if I am feeling sick I have a ginger and lemon tea for a couple of days and then am perfectly fine.Even when I have a headache I drink iced water with a slice of lemon in it and then I have a couple of hours of rest.Nothing works better then home remedies.
        Great tips for detoxing. Thank you

    • dee says:

      That is absolutely not true! I have cleared out bacterial infections naturally with Pau d Arco. I have shared this with my family and friends with great results.

    • Ra says:

      Allicin (derived from Garlic) has been known to rid the body of MRSA; a dangerous and antibiotic resistant form of Staph. There have been patients cured of MRSA in England by using Allicin. Even antibiotics can’t do that.

  7. Kathy says:

    Very balanced, well-written, and multiple options. Something here that will undoubtedly work for everyone! Thank you!

  8. body detox says:

    Thank’s for sharing. Personally I think one of the best way to detoxify the body is a raw food diet, because of the enzymes in raw foods. Raw foods have all the nutrients we need to remain physically fit, energized and disease-resistant. A raw food diet strengthens the immune system, preventing illness.

  9. typodrive says:

    Generally good tips, except green, black and white teas should be eliminated from all diets because they are naturally extremely high in fluoride even though they contain also antioxidant components which can be obtained elsewhere. For instance, one cup of black tea contains over eleven times the EPA’s recommended daily dosage of fluoride where fluoride is actually not necessary for any biological functions in the body. Fluoride is actually a very potent poison and should be avoided, especially by children. Check it out.

    • Phoenix says:

      you’re saying these teas should be completely eliminated? I disagree. it would take a gallon a day for ten plus years to develop something like skeletal fluorosis. tea is absolutely more beneficial than no tea.

  10. Damien says:

    I’ve either studied too much or the internet is full of the same information,
    but I really want to see information about health that I don’t know.
    I would like to see more specialized information, such as the science and history behind it. There are quite a lot of sites giving lists of things to do and not do, and a lot of people who still have trouble are not getting anywhere because that isn’t enough.

    I am sure this is very useful for many people out there though. 🙂

    • sue says:

      Check out most health food stores that deal with organic foods, candida cleansing, and escential oils. There’s plenty of info at these places

    • Gracie says:


      I completely agree with you 100%. Provide the research data; show/prove where you derived your recommendation and then defend it. This helps one to truly understand the entire picture and not just what you’re suggesting or recommending. Substance and validity are the meat and potatoes or as I would say; the nucleus foundation for a healthier way of life.

    This is one of the best detox pages I have read but the important thing is five times prayers that have good affects on health. if you touch your forehead on earth all the tension which mixed from electrical charges attract by earth which perfect earth . thank you for sharing I look forward to reading more of your articles.

  12. pam says:

    Some good ideas. I like the idea of fasting. I might try it some time.

  13. James Dazouloute says:

    Great great tips about Detoxifying the body. And I love the tip that you share about “Sweating It Out”. Because you have to get rid of the toxins in the body by flushing them out by any means. And when you are exercising at an intense rate and turn down the AC, then you give your body a chance to perspire and sweat out the toxins. Great share, James.

  14. moody Farrag says:

    read this might help.

  15. Destiny says:

    While I enjoyed getting the recipes, there are a few things wrong with this post. First of all, organic foods are grown with pesticides too. Sometimes more pesticides than conventional foods since they are not genetically enhanced to be more resistant to pests. I think you’re just confusing what “organic” actually means. It’s not that organic doesn’t use any of those things (pesticides, preservatives, etc) just that it hasn’t been genetically altered.

    Also I agree with Andrea about the antibiotics. You can be the most healthy person on the planet but you can still get sick. Yes, if your diet is better your immune system is better but that doesn’t mean you’re completely impervious to disease. If you get a bacterial infection you should take antibiotics. Simple as that.

    Also (and this isn’t related to the post directly but a previous comment), the fluoride content in tea is no reason to stop drinking it. Here’s a website that sums up what researchers have concluded about fluoride in black tea (http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2010/07/100714104059.htm). So unless you’re literally drinking 1-2 GALLONS of tea EVERY SINGLE DAY for 20-30 YEARS, then I think you’re fine.

    • Barb says:

      Organic means that the product is grown without pesticides. Farmers use all natural products with the food; such as: oregano with chickens, diatomaceous earth with garden vegetables, etc.

  16. canie says:

    Antibitotics is fine for those who have severe infection . But i took antibiotic and im damage by it . I must listen to my body rather than people told me or my doctor i have simple infection , but have lot of health problems now because of that drug . Thanks for this i must apply this for my evryday lifestyle

    • Louiise says:

      I agree with you Canie. I’m 23 years old and I’ve have more than 10 rounds of antibiotics in the last 6 years. I recall an average of 2 a year and since this January I’ve already had 4, all of which were a very high dosage of 3 pills a day for 10 days because I am now immune to the “regular” kind. I can’t get rid of a common cold, it lingers for weeks, my immune system is shot and useless. There have been times when I severely needed antibiotics, but I’d say no more than 5 out of the literally countless time were actually necessary.
      I’m very grateful for this site as it has multiple ways to rid of toxins and really, we should be doing (arguably I’m sure) all of them. Thank you for sharing!

  17. Cassandra says:

    Wow! I really enjoyed all of the information that you shared. I took plenty of notes and now I am excited to begin my journey. Thank you!

  18. Denise says:

    The only issue I have sometimes with trying to detox/cleanse is keeping on track, if I do it by myself, through diet, etc. I prefer getting packs, you know the ones that are delivered to your house with instructions and everything you need. I’m not sure what you think of these, but I’ve had 3 so far and to be honest they work really really well for me, maybe it’s because they are more difficult and in a concentrated amount of time. My favourite so far is the one from ninedaycleanse dot co, it’s pretty straightforward and works with my body really well, I even lose weight from it!

  19. Kyle says:

    Can you smoke marijuana? or would it be alright to cape or eat edibles? Or does THC count as a toxin? The other effects for the body seem like it would be beneficial.

    • Louiise says:

      Kyle, I don’t know much about marijuana, but I do it – smoke, eat, vape, capsule whatever. There is tar residue which isn’t very good. Vapour I’ve been told 1 ups smoking. Etibles are a completely different high than smoking and I would assume if it’s made with “organic” (I quote cause some people rather focus on controversy than helpful tips) ingredients it’s much better. Those all have THC and get you high. There are however CBDs they don’t get you high in forms of capsule, etible and syringe – others? I don’t know. CBDs aren’t 100% THC free but very close and not noticeable in your every day tasks. CBDs are very well known in the cancer community for replacing chemo. I’m not saying chose it over chemo, but if I ever got cancer I would. However, I don’t know enough to give you a yes or no answer, but personally speaking if you’re doing a cleanse and you’re cutting out all other food? Cut out everything questionable which would include marijuana. Because why not? And residue or tar is a toxin. And I’m pretty sure cleanses aren’t longer than a week so hopefully you can go that long without it. In the case you can’t, arguably, It is a plant and natural and organic and green 😉 – Just be wary of the way it is made, who makes it, all that crap. A certain kind of shatter has too much butane and gives my boyfriend wicked migraines – again watch how it’s made. Cheap food makes you feel like shit, so does cheap shatter product. Hope this helps..??? Go for green!

  20. jess says:

    Actually for the lemonade detox it’s not just any organic maple syrup it’s Grade B maple syrup that has to be used. The reason for that is because of the nutrients Grade B maple syrup has to offer; that the body will need due to the fasting. You can find it at your nearest whole foods market.

    Thank you so much for the comprehensive article. There are many raw fruits, vegetables and herbs one can ingest for detoxification… but here is a little thing that my mom does every day before she eats or drinks anything in the morning: she pours boiled water on a bunch of parsley (as much as you can fit in a mug, including the roots) and drinks it. And this is a great and simple cleansing recipe…

    Hi there
    I am on 2 types of antibiotics for a nasty flu which I’ve have for 6 days. I would like to do a detox but am wondering should I start while on the antibiotics or wait until they are finished.

  26. Elise says:

    Great, very informative article! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

  27. Katie says:

    Getting a massage does not flush out toxins.

  28. Elizabeth says:

    Thank you for posting this information. I have been asked to assist in creating a ‘wellness retreat’ for my church involving juicing and detox. I like your cleanse drink recipes however I am alergic to fresh Cayenne Pepper. I can use it once it has been heated through. So my question is, in the Lemon, Maple and Cayenne drink would it affect the result if I heated the Cayenne through first?

  29. Michela says:

    Great article. A great way of maintainng your immune system high is to keep your intestine as clean & healthy as possible. I do a detox diet once a year with a powder made out of 120 nutrients and pysillium as the main one. Moreover one glass of lukewarm water with fresh lemon juice (organic lemons only) every morning before breakfast helps a lot too! 🙂

  30. Erum khan says:

    I strongly agreed to your views Musharraf.

    Of all the detox reports I have read this makes the most sense. I do need to do a really good detox and I need to lose some weight. So I will try some of your solutions in hopes that it helps. I am a prediabetic so I hope this helps.

  33. Chris says:

    I have a hookworm Paracite in me. Will this detox help. I cannot afford the 90day cleanse I also have auto immune desiese scleroderma / Lupus I think I’ve had it for yrs but didn’t know. I’ve had 2 iron infusions in the past. And recently GYN dr told me I was anemic again w/ auto immune I also have raynauds in my hands Which they ulserate I think that’s how it got into my system Now it’s bad. I won’t get into other issues I’m embarrassed to have at least I can be honest w/ O You seeing me.

  34. Chris says:

    Any kind of thought is appreciated

  35. Benedicto says:

    Brilliant stuff, am already trying it.

  36. Lion says:

    For antibiotics try oil of oregano. This is the best bacteria and viruses natural remedy by far.

  37. Kelly says:

    So its basically having a healthy shake in the morning and then eating healthy the rest of the day. And to stay away from red meat. Im assuming that chicken and turkey are fine? Lots of fruits and veggies

  38. Kathreen Miller says:

    Very informative and amazing write up. Colon clease should be done to remove toxins from the body. It helps in healthy living. This topic is a great help thanks a ton.

  39. Great article. I think it’s really important to choose a detox that involves food. The problem with liquid-only detoxing is that it damages your metabolism. So when you start eating normally again, you are much more likely to gain the weight you lost. To anyone who’s trying to lose weight,

  40. cindy longbrake says:

    i have interstitial cystitis , how would I detox with that ?

  41. Alishia Mason says:

    I’ve been researching about eating healthy and living a better life. I’ve read repeatedly about drinking several glasses of water a day. My question is: if the faucets in the home have calcification on them, does that get into our body? I learned the HVAC and water heater need to be cleaned every 6 months or at least yearly. Also, to have a water purification and water softener system. Many articles I’ve read suggest “detoxing” several times a year, too! Although some doctors suggest doing it weekly. If you’re doing a detox smoothie once a day, and drinking lots of purified water would that be enough? I noticed some herbs are specifically for detoxing certain parts of the body, but are not sold regularly in the healthfood stores or produce markets. Do you suggest any full body detoxification programs for general health and weight loss?

  42. Alishia Mason says:

    Correction: To drink several glasses of purified water in the morning.
