Detoxification and Cleanse

Detoxification and cleansing means to remove toxins from the body. Our body is a natural waste management system that eliminates waste through our urine, sweat, feces, and breathe. Our organs and circulation rely on our bodies’ waste management system to run efficiently and properly. Drinking alcohol, breathing polluted air, eating processed foods with additives and sugars, overeating, sleep deprivation, stress, and heavy metals can all cause the toxins in our bodies to build up making our organs imbalanced. 

Detoxification and cleansing are not part of traditional Chinese medicine. The TCM approach is more of a gradual and lifelong approach of healthy living which includes eating fresh fruits and vegetables, drinking water every morning, limiting alcohol, reducing sugar, avoiding junk food, and sleeping better. Regular exercise and meditation also help cleanse the body and reduce stress. 

In TCM, herbs are nurturing formulas focused on removing toxins and stagnation in the channel/organ system and nurturing the balance of organs. Jia wei xiao yao san or xiao yao san are both formulas which address liver stagnation. 

Suggested natural approaches to cleanse and detox are exercise, healthy eating, meditation, and avoiding alcohol and sugar. Eating foods rich in fiber is also recommended to purge the body of toxins and help the digestive system to work well. Foods such as kale, broccoli, almonds, beans, berries, apples, flaxseed, and chia are all high-fiber foods. Drinking a hot cup of water with lemon in the morning can help jump-start your body. 

Detox herbs include burdock root, echinacea, triphala, ginger, neem, dandelion, milk thistle, black walnut, wormwood, stinging nettle and cilantro. Antioxidant-rich foods and herbs are also a great way to detox because they help clear the body of free radicals caused by toxins. Berries, broccoli, garlic, green tea, and tomatoes are some antioxidant-rich choices. Vitamins A, C, E, selenium, manganese, beta-carotene, lutein, and flavonoids are a few of the supplements which provide antioxidants.
