The following are lifestyle tips I suggest for brain health and detoxification.
Movement is essential for detoxing. Exercise to sweat, get blood and lymph flowing; at least 30 minutes, 3 days a week. Exercising reduces toxic load by flushing toxins out and improves lymph flow.
Sleep removes waste products from the brain. Make sure to get 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night. Listen to your body, if you're tired get the extra rest. Tip: sleep in a cool, dark, quiet room to enhance sleep quality.
Use personal hygiene, cosmetics, and household products that are natural and free from toxic chemicals. I frequently use an app called Think Dirty to check products for ingredients that are toxic. Products used daily are absorbed through our skin and breathed in through our lungs.
Optimal water in-take for your particular body weight; at least half of your body weight in ounces. Water is essential to improve digestion and flush toxins from our liver and kidneys. I recommend filtered or alkaline water. Avoid carbonated water as your main source of water intake.
Massage helps with detoxification by increasing circulation of lymph and blood. A detox massage is a form of deep tissue massage therapy that focuses on the body's muscle tissues, lymphatic system, and mental stimulation.
