Pure water
One of the easiest things to do to get your system detoxifying more effectively is to drink lots of water. Ideally the water should be as pure as possible, so buy a bottle, and get a filter or a rainwater tank. Drink at least two litres of water per day, more if it is hot or when you are exercising. A good rule of thumb is that if your urine is not almost clear, then you need to drink more. Water in alcohol, tea, coffee, soft drinks and ice blocks doesn’t count. The only changes we would recommend you make to your water are to add a little lemon, ginger or mint- otherwise, just drink it straight!

Cleaning products
Your home and work can be major sources of toxins. Try to eliminate or minimise your use of cleaning products (vinegar, bi-carb soda and other natural products are a suitable alternative), antiperspirants with aluminium, pesticides, herbicides, petrochemicals, paints, solvents and hair spray. As much as possible, also try to avoid pollution from cars and factories, as well as mould, dust and animal dander (if you are sensitive).

Avoid toxic emotions and stress
Lots of people have found that how you feel and how you think influences your health profoundly. Try to avoid being around negative, energy draining people. Choose to be positive, optimistic and focused on improving your health. If you have a major stress in your life, enlisting the support of others to help can be useful. If you have lots of little stresses, practicing a relaxation technique like yoga, tai chi, meditation or prayer may be helpful. Ask your practitioner for other suggestions on managing stress and natural supplements that may be helpful.
