When most people first hear the word “cleansing” or “detoxifying” the body, they immediately think of starving or painful detox symptoms. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth, which is why we decided to dedicate an article on showing you the best and most painless methods to detoxify your body without enduring and going through painful or unpleasant side-effects.
The first and most important thing in the world is water, and without it our bodies can’t function for long. However, when we consume water on regular basis, not only does this enhance our immune system and helps our body develop further, but it also helps fight off various health conditions, regulate weight, and most important of all – flush out all the accumulated toxins and harmful waste from your body.
While cleansing the body is highly important, keeping your mind in focus, disciplined and your thoughts in order is the second most important thing. Therefore, we suggest you try out meditation, for focus and relaxation and to flush out all of the negative and toxic emotions and thoughts.
- Juicing Dandelion Greens
Juicing is another powerful method of detoxification. It involves flooding your body with micronutrients and flushing out the waste. Dandelions are a natural diuretic meaning that they help the kidneys filter through excess water and salt, while cleansing the liver. Therefore, add dandelion greens to your juice or smoothies and you are good to go.

Dry brushing is a process of running a dry brush in specific, continuous and circular motions across your skin towards your heart. When this is combined with rebounding (physical aerobic activity) it makes for the perfect light detoxification method.

Therefore, instead of eating waffles or cereal, try drinking warm lemon water or some green tea or a smoothie even.
