Wellness Wednesday: New Year Detox

After indulging in holiday treats and beverages, part of your New Year’s resolution may be to detoxify your body for a fresh start to 2015.

If so, we’ve made it easy for you with a few detox tips* and a purifying juice recipe.

Detox Tips

  • Drink plenty of water. Proper hydration is one of the fastest and easiest ways to aid your body in flushing out all the “gunk” and excess bloat.
  • Eliminate stimulants and inflammatory foods for 5 to 7 days – including caffeine, sugar, alcohol, wheat, dairy and meat
  • Eat your fruits and vegetables. Packed with antioxidants, they help rid the body of free radicals.
  • Cook with fresh green herbs like parsley, basil and oregano. These herbs have phytonutrients which help with detoxification.
  • Improve circulation by consuming garlic, onions and cayenne peppers
  • Drink ginger infusions by soaking a piece of ginger in hot water
  • Sleep well to regenerate your body
  • Finish your detox with a purifying juice
