Our bodies are meant to naturally cleanse themselves; however, in today’s modern society they have to process more chemicals than ever before, and this can lead to a toxic overload. Our bodies have to process air pollution, pesticides, and hazardous chemicals that end up in our soil, water, food supply, and ultimately our bodies.
Using cleansing herbs helps counteract this accumulation of toxins and wastes. Fortunately, there are herbs that can help support your body in the cleansing process. The following eight herbs have been traditionally used for centuries and are excellent for cleansing: blessed thistle, burdock, kelp, sheep sorrel, slippery elm, Turkish rhubarb, red clover and watercress.
When people say that they’re doing a cleanse or detox you’ll often hear them complaining about the difficult meal plan or extreme food restrictions; however, cleansing your body doesn’t have to be a chore. It can be as simple as drinking a cup of tea. Drinking a warm cup of cleansing tea supports your body, protects you from the build-up of toxins that accumulates over time, and promotes a healthier and more radiant you. We’ll drink to that!
Did you know? Every second, 310 kilograms of toxic chemicals are released into our air, land and water by industrial factories worldwide.
