3– Avoid toxic oils in your diet
The toxic oils in our daily food are one of the biggest sources of injection of toxins in our bodies which are very harmful to us. Now, what do we need to do? Should we stop using oils in our food? A hard step no? Relax! You don’t need to do that. All you need to do is just know which oils are toxic and which are not, and then replace these toxic oils with non-toxic ones. The highly toxic oils include peanut oil, vegetable oil, sunflower oil, cottonseed oil, and canola oil. You have to eliminate all of these oils from your diet in order to detoxify your body. Now, what do you need to replace these oils with? Use coconut oil, avocado oil, extra virgin olive oil, flaxseed oil and hemp oil. All these oils help to detoxify your body and let you live a healthy life.
4- Avoid white bread and white flour
White flour is harmful to your digestive system. It works like a glue for your body. It can make it difficult to have normal bowel movements. Again it’s not possible to completely eradicate flour from your diet just like oils, so what do we do now? We need a substitute which is healthy and non-toxifying as well. Kamut flour, Spelt flour, brown rice flour, buckwheat flour, cornmeal or quinoa flour are some of the good substitutes of white flour and white bread. This white flour and white bread are so into our lives that we feel like food is incomplete without them but we have no idea how dangerous they are for our body and digestive system in particular, therefore in order to detoxify your body stay away from the white flour and white bread.
