In the busy world today, people come in contact with an endless amount of impurities, toxins, poisons, pollutants, and other more. These chemicals land on our skin, absorb into the fabrics we wear, and are breathed into our lungs. As inevitable as this may seem, there are a few ways that we can reduce the exposure to these environmental impurities, and one of the best ways is taking a detox bath. Following are 3 top benefits of a detox bath.
How to get started
An important part of doing a detox bath is to be hydrated. This will make it possible for you to be able to reap all of the benefits of the bath and be sure that your body is hydrated enough to be influenced by the heat of the water. Next, select your water additives. You can always add Epsom salt, apple cider vinegar, essential oils, baking soda or anything else that may have benefits you are looking for.
Bathing for cleanliness is only a small portion of the health benefits from this ancient innovation and pastime. For thousands of years, mankind has known that one of the most relaxing and soothing experiences is that of taking a warm or hot bath. Heat loosens muscle tissues that have been clenched by stress, as many people subconsciously carry stress in shoulders, backs, legs, and neck muscles. I also like the feeling of simply being still and relaxing.
Stimulate the Elimination of Toxins
In daily modern life, the most common position for people is sitting. This means that toxins and other wastes can easily build up in the body causing blockages and other unpleasant ailments. In order to have a healthy body, it is important to work on clearing out your lymph system. One way this can be accomplished is through heating the body, thus making it easier for the lymph system to flow more freely.
Due to the acidic content of modern foods, swelling or inflammation in adults has reached epidemic levels. A long soak in warm or hot water can provide some relief by greatly reducing inflammation in joints and other tissues. A gentle, but firm rub while submerged can go a long way to improving circulation and arterial health.
When I am doing either my Seasonal Clean Eating Reset or the NeoLife 3 Day Detox, I notice the sugar cravings are gone in 1-3 days. It’s amazing how powerful sugar is and that we can take control of it.
