How To: Weekend CLEANSE
For a Gut and Liver Cleanse
For a daily routine, drink warm water with lemon as soon as you wake up.
Also try wellness shots like freshly squeezed pineapple-ginger, ginger turmeric, honey ginger, or just a ginger shot. Ginger is great for immunity. These are some of our favorites for a quick, potent dose of nutrients. Try having one every day for a week.
It’s more than just brushing your teeth and flossing, which you should! (Btw- have you ever tried a water flosser? It’s a game-changer to flossing. We highly recommend this one.)
Oil pulling has its benefits. It has a detoxifying effect by pulling oil-soluble toxins out of your body. Specifically, it pulls these toxins through the delicate blood vessels in your mouth’s soft tissue. It isn’t studied much, but it has zero side effects, so it’s totally worth trying. It is said by Dr. Sands in a Poosh article, that it’s “effective in reducing gingivitis” which causes staining, irritation, or dry mouth. Dr. Sands even mentions it can prevent your cavities from getting worse, and new ones from forming.
So how do you do it? Swish about a tablespoon or two of coconut oil in your mouth for 15-20 minutes (but spit it in the trash, because it’s not good for plumbing!) It’s recommended you do this first thing after waking up, before brushing or flossing.
Boost in Focus
Start with putting yourself in a routine of journaling and/or a gratitude journal. Although you can spend the weekend journaling in a deeper sense, daily journaling is a very positive habit and is a great stress reliever.
Spill it all out on paper, visualize and brainstorm your week, month, and year’s focus. When it’s on paper, you see it clearly as opposed to jumbled up in your head causing you to be overwhelmed.
For Circulation and Lymphatic Flow
Try these activities – daily morning stretches, yoga or Pilates.
What are the positives of lymphatic flow?
- it protects your body from illnesses
- maintains your body fluid levels
- allows for absorption of digestive tract fats while removing cellular waste – literally what we imagine as detox
Try dry brushing, a face gua sha, or a body roller.
