Cut Back On Salt, Sugar, And Processed Foods
Eating more salt and drinking less water can cause fluid retention and bloating owing to the body releasing an antidiuretic hormone. This hormone makes you urinate less and thus keeps your body from detoxifying naturally. When you increase your intake of water, the secretion of this hormone decreases and you’re able to eliminate water and waste products from your body.
Excess intake of sugar and processed foods is linked to obesity and chronic diseases like heart disease, diabetes, and cancer. Sugary and processed foods not just hinder your body’s ability to detoxify naturally, but also harm organs like kidneys and the liver.
Replace salty, sugary, and processed foods with whole foods, fruits and vegetables. Opt for foods rich in antioxidants and probiotics.
