Try to drink eight to ten glasses of pure water a day! It's not hard... just three to four glasses in each part of the day. You can try room temperature water to start and then switch to ice water in the afternoon. You can even add a few slices of lemon or squeeze some lemon in your water to add some tasty natural flavor. This has more benefit than taste because lemons contain a high acid content which helps the digestive system move. If you have kids, you can toss in those reusable frozen-shaped ice cubes that kids love. Or, you can give them a goofy straw that they can only use when drinking water. Use fun and easy ways to get your kids to drink water to flush away their toxins too!

Think all you have to do is just drink the water?

There are also other ways water can help you remove toxins. Water is also useful externally: baths and saunas can help detoxify. Hot water increases blood flow and capillary action near the surface of the skin, causing the faster release of toxins. The heat also increases sweating and opens up pores. Be sure to bathe in pure water and be mindful that hot water and the detoxification effect can cause dizziness. A hot bath can lead to increased body temperature and cause blood vessels to dilate, which lowers blood pressure then leads to dizziness. Also, there are a number of substances you can add to your bath to help the detoxification process. Exercising is also an excellent way to get your bowel moving to excrete toxins. Exercise helps to decrease the time it takes for food to move through the large intestine, this will avoid hard stools which are harder to pass. Aerobic exercise accelerates your breathing and heart rate. This helps stimulate the natural contraction of intestinal muscles which will help move stools out quickly.

Why not make simple flavorings of your daily drinking water a habit, as well as add certain bath salts to help make your detoxifying process with water more enjoyable! If you’re thirsty, drink water instead of those sugary drinks we are so familiar with. Water is the number one way to maintain health and to excrete toxins from our bodies. Lastly, simply exercising 10 to 15 minutes several times a day can help your body and digestive system function optimally. Let us begin paving the way to a healthy and happy lifestyle!
