Want to cleanse the body even further?
Follow these other beneficial practices:
1. Use herbs that help your food digest quickly. When cleansing the body, the digestion has to work as well as the elimination process. Use a combination of dry ginger, black pepper, cumin, coriander and turmeric while cooking your food so when you eat, the herbs mix in your food and help your digestive fire (Agni) stay at maximum strength.
2. Fast for 1-4 days a month on vegetable juice and soup. Taking 3-5 cups of vegetable juice, herbal teas and or soups gives your system a break from digesting solid food that takes much longer to digest. During a 1-4 day liquid fast, the body has the opportunity to let go of harmful toxins that have built up in areas such as the organs and tissues. The mind also can become lighter and more stress free during a fast.
3. Take 2-4 tablespoon of aloe vera juice twice a day on an empty stomach. This will help support better digestion, as well as calm down any excessive heat in the system such as acidity or heartburn.
