3 Ways To Reduce Toxins In Your Body

reduce toxins
We live in a world filled with toxins. We hear about toxins in our food, water, and air, but we also hear about “toxic” relationships and “toxic” thoughts.

The cocktail of toxins we are exposed to everyday creates health issues that we are all experiencing to different degrees. Commonplace complaints such as headaches, low energy, bowel irregularities, allergies, depression, skin issues and more are largely caused by overloaded detox systems in our bodies.

But we can change this. Here are three ways to reduce toxins in your body:

1. Eat Whole foods.
The major source of chemicals and toxins comes from our food. Look for whole foods free of preservatives, conservatives, and coloring agents. And when available, choose chemical-free and organic.

2. Use chemical-free cosmetics, body care, and cleaning products.
Over the last few years, this topic has been written about extensively. We now have lots of companies that are creating chemical-free products. You can always check how clean your products are at the Environmental Working Group’s consumer guides here.

3. Filter your water.
Water is a major source of toxins today. A recent study showed that 41 million Americans drink water contaminated with antidepressants, hormones, heart medications, and other prescription and over-the-counter medications that have made it through the water-treatment system.

Add to that the chlorine, carcinogens from industrial and agricultural waste, and you’ve got some real messy stuff.

Filter your drinking water and shower water. The city or town-supplied water in our showers and bathtubs has equal potential to add to our toxic load, because we absorb more water through our skin via bathing and showering than through drinking.

Use the water-filter buying guide from the Environmental Working Group to help you find a filter that’s a good fit for you.

And if you really need to eliminate toxins, consider a cleanse such as the Clean Program (you can read about my experience with it here).

  1. Hi,

    My name is Laura and I’m from Spain and I am a Chemist. My comment is because I become to be a bit tired of the wrong use you do when you talk about “chemical-free”. Because all is chemistry or chemical, the water for example in its purest form is H2O, so it is not a chemical free.

    Why don’t you start to talk about manipulation? Or conservatives? Why don’t you give a proper use of the word “chemical”?

    As I said, I am a chemist, and I love environment, I don’t eat meat, I love my pets, I use my own urban garden to cook, etc.

  2. Thank you so much for these tips 🙂
    My family’s been filtering our water (both drinking and showering) for a long time now, and it makes such a huge difference!
    When I moved away from home for university a few years ago, I lived in an apartment that didn’t have filtered water, and I really noticed the difference it made to my skin, hair, and overall health!
    Great article! <3
