Healthy Aging- Detox Time

3. Detoxing Your Diet for Healthy Aging

For healthier aging, detoxing your diet can be very beneficial. Detoxification means clearing the body of toxins, allowing the liver to clean itself so that it can function more efficiently and provide support to the other body organs. In doing this we would like to eliminate the toxic foods from the diet.

The following are things to reduce and/or eliminate to help you detox:

  • Refined, processed sugars/carbohydrates
  • Trans and hydrogenated fats
  • Pesticides, herbicides, hormones and antibiotics (GO ORGANIC)
  • Artificial flavors and colors
  • Preservatives and chemicals
  • GMOs and most all processed, pre-packaged and fast foods.

 

Helpful ways to eliminate such things:

  • Shop at your local farmers markets and health food stores
  • Buy as much organic as possible and look for products to be labeled certified free GMO
  • Consume more of a plant based diet as much as possible
  • When buying fish, look for wild caught instead of farm raised
  • Chose grass fed beef rather than grain fed
  • And try to prepare most all your foods from scratch.

 

Some foods you can add to your diet to help you detox:

  • Apple cider vinegar
  • Greens such as kale, collards, spinach, and Swiss chard
  • Beets
  • Hemp, flax, chia, almond, avocado or coconut oils
  • Lemons and limes
  • Garlic
  • And lots of purified clean water!

 

In detoxing your liver, it helps your body get its’ balance back. A good, healthy liver performs over 500 crucial roles in the body including one of the most important for our survival: purifying and clearing waste products, toxins and drugs from the body. You might be thinking, “If this is the livers main function, why can’t it filter out all of these foods I’m eating?” This is because we eat an excess of the standard American diet and our bodies can’t keep up. Day after day, meal after meal and snack after snack, our liver is on overload and it becomes stressed and worn out. By allowing our bodies to detox, we take care of our liver and it is the starting point to Healthy Aging.
