Slimming down isn’t the only reason you should take care of yourself. Eating diuretic, fiber-rich foods does much more than just help you get a nice body.
Your bowels play an essential role in keeping your body healthy. As you know, your intestines’ job is to eliminate toxins and harmful substances.
Having toxins in your body is like throwing rice into a motor. It may still work for a little bit, but moving with a foreign object inside will make it start to break down and eventually break.
Sometimes, the breakdown can be fixed, sometimes it can’t. Therefore, you must detox your bowels and thus keep things out that will slowly poison you without you even realizing it.
We suggest using these drinks to help you out. They’re gentle and very effective.
They don’t contain chemicals that could cause side effects in other parts of your body. In addition, they’re cheap and easy to make, so you can use them any time you want!
The ingredients are also widely available. Try them!
Detox your bowels with hot beverages
Besides being wonderfully relaxing, chamomile supports proper excretion if used daily.
It doesn’t work to just take it when you don’t feel good or have heartburn. It’s best to enjoy it after every meal. This way, you’ll be combining the food you eat with the power of chamomile and your intestines will be able to process your food better.
You can use the normal, conventional tea bags, but ideally you should use dried chamomile. You can find it in natural supply stores. That’s because the former is processed while the second is organic.
