Detoxification of the body has been practiced for many centuries. Some religious groups and even Hippocrates recommended fasting for health improvement.
Many detox diets today can help you lose weight, but if you start a low-calorie diet, your body may starve and your metabolism will slow down, as this would lead to loss of important nutrients.
Other negative effects of the detoxification diet that may occur are dehydration, fatigue, nausea, dizziness, or damage to the colon.
Detox can help you lose any excess pounds, cure acne and other skin problems, and even more.
The liver is perhaps the most important organ in the body when it comes to detoxification. The liver is the first defense against toxins. It acts as a filter and prevents toxins from food to pass into the blood.
Here’s how you can get rid of toxins with olive oil and lemon in 7 steps. This is an easy way to purify the body and you can do it at home with common household ingredients. This will help your body get rid of toxins and pollutants that accumulate in the liver.
How to make liver detoxification in 24 hours
- Fresh apples
- Fresh lemons
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- measuring cup
- herbal laxative
- plum juice
Get ready for cleansing. Eat as many fresh apples as you can, drink water as much as you can and at least 4 cups of freshly squeezed apple juice for three days before the cleaning.
Wash thoroughly the lemons, squeeze the juice and pass it through a strainer to remove the seeds. You’ll need half a cup of lemon juice, so squeeze enough lemons to get this amount.
Measure half a cup of extra virgin olive oil, which has to be at room temperature.
Mix equal parts of good extra virgin olive oil and lemon juice. Drink one cup before bedtime.
Drink the mixture immediately as olive oil and lemon juice can start to separate. Try not to eat solid foods throughout the day. You can drink water, herbal tea, to eat soup or vegetable broth to calm the hunger.
Lie down for about 30 minutes. This will help if you experience nausea after drinking the mixture of olive oil and lemon.
The next morning, drink a cup of herbal laxative tea, then drink the plum juice or eat a few prunes to stimulate the bowel and remove toxins from the body.
