In our daily life we are usually surrounded by multiple chemical elements that contaminate our food and have an impact on our organism. Therefore, we tell you how to learn to avoid them and eliminate these substances from your body in a natural way.

We are surrounded by heavy metals that, accumulated in our body in excessive amounts, can cause serious damage to our health. Also, once they enter our body, it is quite difficult for us to eliminate them. For this reason it is important to avoid exposure to them.

As a first step, we should try to control all metals and chemicals that may be toxic and that may be present in our food, water, cosmetics, medicines, cleaning products, and even in the air we breathe.

These can come from:

  • Pipelines 
  • Energy-saving light bulbs or mercury thermometers when broken
  • Certain types of fish (such as oily fish)
  • Cooking utensils containing aluminum
  • Vaccines
  • Pesticides
  • Food additives
  • Ingredients of personal care products
  • Medications 
  • Untreated water

The sources of metals and toxins are present all around us, and are part of our daily life, which makes it very easy to become contaminated. It is therefore necessary to be informed in order to know how to identify and avoid them, as they can have serious consequences. For example, kidney or liver diseases, nervous system alterations, joint diseases, endocrine disorders, allergies and intoxications, among other health problems.


How to cleanse our body?

Many times, resorting to the popular "Detox" treatments implies continuing with the ingestion or application of some of these toxic substances, that is why it is essential to resort to natural products that manage to clean our body without damaging it.

For example:

  • Cilantro: apart from being used as a condiment, cilantro contains a large amount of vitamins, especially vitamins A and K, and to a lesser extent vitamins B, C and E that carry metals out of the body. 
  • Garlic: already known for its uses to combat multiple diseases. In this case its depurative components are responsible for cleansing the body of any toxic substance.
  • Citrus fruits: oranges, tangerines and lemons help to eliminate the remains of heavy metals from the body, carrying out a great decontaminating action.


In addition, you can try these small home remedies:

  • Beet juice: blend 3 small beets, 2 large peeled carrots and 2 sliced apples. Drink one glass per day of this preparation, preferably on an empty stomach. 
  • Tomato juice: blend 2 medium tomatoes, 1 red apple, 1 medium carrot, the juice of 1 orange and 1 lemon, 2 tablespoons of honey and water. Drink the preparation at any time of the day.
