People often feel tired easily especially to working adults. Due to overloaded work and stress, you are becoming unhealthy; your immunity gets low, you'll have poor concentration, headaches and many more. Detoxification is good for the body to help you reduce all of the sickness mentioned above, usually the common health problems.

Detoxification can be with the help of detoxification products but it can also be a detox diet. Controlling the food you consume everyday is essential to your daily dietary. Eating and drinking healthy is a gentle cleansing method to a detox diet. Drinking filtered water or mineral water and taking organic food are recommended to help cleansing better.

Fruit juice, vegetable juice, thin vegetable soups, steamed vegetables, cooked pulses, oatmeal, brown rice, cottage cheese, bio yogurt, fish and chicken are the food that gives you a balance diet and it's all up to you on how much you want to consume them. You can still take your normal calories to complement the detoxing process as well losing some weight!

During the process, remember to drink plenty of water advisable at least two to three litres and what's more important is to exercise more and sweat all the way to a healthier life. While you're at it, remember not to take caffeine, table salt, additives, artificial sweeteners, food additives, alcohol and sugar.

Organic food is recommended during detoxification as they consist of no chemicals compared to non-organic. Chemicals like food additives, colorings, flavorings, preservatives, waxes, fertilizers, pesticides and herbicide residues is consumed and is estimated that the total of chemicals consumed in a year can be up to 6kgs.

After about a week of detoxification, nutritional supplements can be used to support the detoxification process. Nutritional supplements like vitamins and minerals and essential fatty acids like evening primrose or the omega-3 fish oil can be added to balance the process.

After a total of two weeks since you start detoxification, you can now slowly add in your favorite food so that you can still enjoy throughout the process. After a period of time, you'll slowly adapt to it and following that, you'll lead a better and healthier diet and lifestyle. Eating healthy with balanced diet means you'll have to have more grains, vegetables, pulses, white meat and fish. It's still best to avoid sugar, salt, caffeine and alcohol.

Once you are used to living and eating healthy, maintaining it is as easy as snapping your fingers!
