Forget "cleansing." Instead use these simple tricks to boost your natural filtration system.
What do the healthiest people have in common? For starters, they limit the junk that enters their body. This means cutting back on irritants to the gut (alcohol, coffee) and foods that trigger inflammation, like sugar and processed foods, according to integrative medicine physician Frank Lipman, MD, founder and director of Be Well, a wellness company. But even if you don’t eat perfectly 24/7, you can do simple things to help the liver—your body’s natural filter—do its job. “Boosting liver function helps to decrease the accumulation of toxic products in the tissues,” Dr. Lipman says. Here are cleansing moves you can do on the regular—no juice-fasting or salt-cave-dwelling required.
