Herbs that help you Detox your Body... | Roshni Sanghvi

How often should you include them?

This makes a good click- baity title, but you do not need to go out of your way to try ‘detox tea’s, and ‘detox- diet’s’. That is not how the body works. As long as you keep the liver healthy, it will do its job in helping you stay ‘detoxed’.

But here is the thing…

Knowingly or unknowingly, we have several hormone disruptors in our environment that we are constantly in touch with.

For example, you regularly use things like toothpaste, floor cleaners, and hand sanitizers. Additionally, even the food we eat might contain high arsenic and mercury content several times.

Both arsenic and mercury are carcinogenic, and hence it's recommended to keep detoxing them from the body.

Here are some herbal additions necessary for a healthy lifestyle.

Activated Charcoal

Activated charcoal binds with the toxins in the body and flushes them out of the system.

In hospitals, it is also mainly used as a hangover cure as alcohol contains sulfur which is a toxin, and when you consume alcohol, it certainly causes havoc in the system.

I recommend using this no more than once every week and no more than 1/2 tsp in the night and 1/2 tsp the following day.

Charcoal also binds to essential minerals of the body and will flush them out, so do not overdo this. Therefore, avoid taking this within two hours of consuming any medications, too, as it reduces the pill's effect.

Milk Thistle

This unique herb has a different way of functioning. Milk thistle is known to help in repairing and rebuilding your liver. It also boosts the production of new liver cells in your body.

Milk thistle helps the liver process the toxins out of your body by helping the liver function better and efficiently.

If you are someone trying milk thistle for the first time, I recommend trying milk thistle herbal tea. This tea works excellent and has nothing to do with dairy milk.

However, few people should be cautious while using this herb. People who are on diabetic medication or those who have chronic diabetes should avoid taking milk thistles.

The herb is so beneficial that it might lead to Hypoglycemia which is a condition with deficient blood sugar levels. Additionally, someone using blood thinners should also avoid taking milk thistles.

Trust this helps!

Roshni Sanghvi.
