Detoxification made easy

Whether pesticides, fast food, medicines or cosmetics – our bodies have to process a lot. Around the clock, intestines, kidneys, liver and skin do a lot of hard work. A detoxification cure allows the stressed organism to breathe deeply.

You do not need a doctor's prescription for this short-term therapy if you are otherwise healthy. You simply prescribe it yourself. You start your personal detox program comfortably at home and easily integrate it into your everyday life.

Detoxification cure at home: Preparation is the most important thing

How does a detox at home work?

The nutrition plan is the starting signal for your detoxification cure. First it's about the intestine. It must first be emptied. This is followed by the so-called juice days. During this phase, digestion and metabolism should be stimulated. An irritated intestinal flora is given the opportunity to regain its balance. The name says it all, because only liquid foods such as water, juice and tea are allowed during the juice days.

Afterwards, the detoxification cure for the body relies on a diet rich in fibre consisting of fruit and vegetables. Only gradually do solid foods return to the plate. It is important to integrate this food gradually and carefully.

How long the detoxification lasts is entirely up to you. From weekly cures to regular detox days to the purification month – everyone detoxifies in their own way.

Detoxify body according to plan – these foods are taboo

A detoxification cure means renunciation . Just acidic food and luxury foods have lost nothing on the nutrition plan. Say goodbye to them:
  • Coffee
  • Alcohol
  • Cigarettes
  • white flour
  • Cheese
  • Sugar
  • Meat
  • Abstinence brings the acid-base level back into balance. If it is unbalanced, it punishes us with hyperacidity. We feel weak, tend to have impure skin, gain weight more quickly or suffer from persistent muscle tension. Migraine, dental problems and cellulite may also be symptoms. If the disturbed acid-base level returns, the symptoms often disappear by themselves.

    Helpful tips for your personal detox at home

    The following tips can be very useful for your detox diet:
  • Drink at least 2 liters daily, in the best case water and tea.
  • Eat green vegetables. Broccoli, courgettes, spinach and green asparagus are real vitamin wonders.
  • For candy lovers: Replace chocolate and gummi bears during the detox with protein-containing snacks such as nuts and legumes.
  • Include relaxing baths and massages to the detoxification cure.
  • Make sure you get a good night's rest. Ideal are seven to nine hours sleep per day.
  • hen you exercise in the fresh air, you support the cleaning process.
  • Reduce stress factors.
  • Get calm and relax during yoga, Pilates or meditation.
  • Avoid physical exertion such as endurance sports, saunas or sunbathing.
  • Let the detoxification treatment end gradually

    Just as important as the preparation is the follow-up. Especially after pure juice or smoothie cures you have to slowly get your body used to the normal diet again. Give it time. With small light meals you let the detoxification cure gently conclude at home. A good choice is vegetable soups, semolina porridge, rice pudding or fruit salad.
