Home Remedies To Detoxify Your Body

It is a good idea to stay home while you are doing a detoxification program because the first few days of the cleanse can leave you feeling weak, dizzy or sick. Detoxes are performed for such varied reasons as to improve elimination and digestion, kick starting a diet or purging toxins from your body. At-home remedies are less expensive than commercial juices or tonics, and typically consist of water, fruits and vegetables.

Cabbage Soup

The Cabbage Soup Detox is also known as the Cabbage Soup Diet, for people like to use it to jump start a weight loss program. The soup is made with such vegetables as onions, green peppers, tomatoes, carrots, mushrooms, celery and cabbage. You consume as much soup as you want for seven days, along with water, and that is all that you eat during that time span.

Master Cleanse

The Master Cleanse is also known as the Lemonade Cleanse or the Lemonade Diet. Individuals on this diet drink an herbal laxative tea in the evening, perform a salt water flush every morning by drinking warm water mixed with sea salt and consume eight to 12 glasses of a lemonade that is made with fresh lemons, distilled water, cayenne pepper and organic maple syrup. The detox is followed for 10 to 14 days. Its purpose is to cleanse the complete digestive tract and remove toxins from the body.


Drinking freshly juiced fruits or vegetables (or a combination of both) can flush impurities and heavy metals from your system. Carrots, spinach, wheat grass, grapes, grapefruit and blueberries are some foods that work well for this purpose.


To cleanse your body after a night of drinking too much or to knock caffeine out of your system if you've gotten the jitters from consuming too much coffee, drink a glass of water on the hour for eight hours. You will also flush your kidneys at the same time.

Coffee Enemas

Performing an enema with coffee instead of water has been recommended to cleanse the liver and provide relief when someone feels sluggish. Organic coffee should be used since additives that are put in commercial coffee can be harmful when absorbed through an enema.


Sweat helps purge impurities in your body, which can improve the appearance of your skin, and promotes weight loss. It also helps when trying to get a bug out of your system if you are feeling under the weather. If you dress in layers to encourage your body to sweat, make sure that you keep yourself hydrated.

Fruit Fast

Doing a fast that primarily consists of consuming one type of fruit purges the body of fats, preservatives and other unhealthy elements. One such fast is the Cleansing Apple Fast, where organic apples, apple juice and water are the only nutrients that are consumed for three days before gradually reintroducing other foods.
