Did you know that at any one time you have many toxins inside you, attacking your body? Marijuana toxins are simply plant substances that are poisonous to the human body. Still, over-smoking weed will have you feeling sluggish – or worse – unable to pass that vital drug test!
To Detox Weed Is To Rid The Body From These Toxins.
With weed, the cleansing & detoxification process happens primarily in the blood but also involves the elimination of general marijuana toxins from internal organs such as the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph, skin, and even your brain!
The detoxification process is more than just cleansing. It greatly enhances the body’s ability to naturally heal.
[showmyads]Marijuana detoxification involves both the removal and elimination of toxins while providing nourishment to the body from the inside out. In this way, the body renews its ability to protect itself from disease and maintain optimum health.
There are a number of ways to detox weed from the body if you have been smoking too much lately. Some of these include diet, exercise and detoxification procedures such as homeopathic remedies, ozone therapy, acupuncture, massage and thermal chambers or taking a sauna.
Different individuals may need one or more or a combination of dieting & lifestyle practices. Many also need the aid of detoxification procedures. Cleansing the body should be done daily and the intake of detoxifying foods help greatly.
Here are the top 10 best foods to help detoxify toxins from the body:
Green leafy vegetables contain chlorophyll that cleans the digestive tract from environmental toxins such as smog, heavy metals and herbicides or pesticides. They are also good in purging and cleansing the liver. Green leafy vegetables can be eaten raw or they can be added to broths or juices.
Cruciferous vegetables such as broccoli, cabbage, cauliflower and watercress contain phytochemicals such as sulphorophanes, indole-3-carbinol and D-glucarate that have specific effects on Phases 1 and 2 detox. These substances are released when the vegetables are chopped, chewed, fermented, cooked or digested.
Apples are rich in fiber, vitamins and minerals and other phytochemicals such as D-glucarate, flavanoids and terpenoids. All of these substances aid in the detox process. Phlorizidin, a flavonoine, helps stimulate bile production. This aids the liver in getting rid of some toxins through the bile. Pectin, a soluble fiber, helps detox metals and food additives from the body.
3. Citrus and tangerines
These include oranges, lemons and limes. They are a good source of Vitamin C that helps in washing out toxins from the body by converting them into water-soluble substances. They also help in the enzymatic processes of the digestive tract and aid the liver in its cleansing processes. Some citrus fruits contain flavonoids, D-glucarate, vitamins and minerals.
4. Sesame seeds
They protect the liver from the damaging effects of alcohol and other chemicals. Sesame seeds contain the amino acids methionine and tryptophan that aids in a speedy and more efficient functioning liver and kidney.
Onions and garlic contain sulfur compounds, the compounds that give them their strong pungent odor, which stimulate the liver to produce detoxification enzymes that help to filter out toxins from the digestive system. Ginger relieves bloating, nausea and diarrhea and aids in a more efficient digestion. It is recommended to add these spices in salads, sauces, spreads or to any dish.
6. Green tea
Green tea is a healthy way of getting more fluids in the body. It not only washes out toxins but also increases liver function as it contains the antioxidant, catechins.
7. Omega-3 oils
Avocado, hemp, olive oil and flax seed oil are good sources of omega-3 oils. By lubricating the intestinal wall, omega-3 absorbs toxins and eliminates it from the body.
8. Whole grains
Whole grains contain both soluble and insoluble fibers that thoroughly cleanse our colon and encourage good bowel function. For those on detox diet, non gluten grains such as brown rice, millet and buckwheat are recommended.
An ancient spice that is native to Southeast Asia, turmeric has a peppery, warm and bitter flavor and mild fragrance. It contains curcumin that inhibits Phase 1 detox and stimulates Phase 2 detox.
It helps detoxify the body as it contains probiotics that reduce intestinal inflammation and fungal infections. These probiotics also have the ability to eliminate bacteria that may cause damage to the lining of the stomach and liver.
This list is a good place to start but don’t be limited. There are more foods that help aid in ridding the body of toxins. Do more research and remember that knowing the right foods for detoxifying the body from poisonous substances such as toxins will help keep you disease-free and in optimum health.
