Food Matters 3 Day Detox Cleanse-January 9th
Dry Skin Brushing
Dry skin brushing is another economical and easy way to detoxify. Dead skin cells are sloughed away, the lymphatic and immune systems are stimulated while toxin harboring cellulite is reduced.
A wide, long-handled natural bristle brush is all that’s needed. Begin with dry skin and brush in upward strokes toward the heart. The feet are a good place to start. Brush the legs, arms, back and abdomen. It takes only 5-10 minutes to brush the entire body. Make sure to enjoy a hot shower afterwards, drink a big glass of water and breathe deeply. Your happily purified body will thank you.
Green Detox Juice
This recipe makes approximately two 8 ounce servings.
- 5 stalks of Kale or Spinach
- 3 Apples
- 1 Lemon
- 1 Cucumber
Instructions: Wash all the ingredients and run them through the juicer. (If you’re using a slow-juicer, run a bit of water through the juicer last, in order to catch all of the last bits of flavor.) As with any juice, feel free to substitute any ingredients you don’t like for those that you do!
