Are you feeling sluggish? Do you have blemishes on your skin? Do you feel bloated or is your digestive system wreaking havoc on you? If so, it is time to rid your body of environmental pollutants, heavy metals, pesticides, radiation, plastics and GMO foods, while bringing your body back to a place of balance. When toxins accumulate in the body this can leave you feeling tired, irritable, depressed, bloated and carrying excess weight. The onslaught of toxins being poured into our air, water and soil has undoubtedly affected our health. Now it is time to live a life of purifying the body.

1. Drink more purified water: Water is one of the most vital ways of self-purification. It helps every single cell get rid of waste, and allows us to excrete toxins through our urine and bowels, as well as through our skin by sweating.

2. Support your liver and gallbladder with beetroot

3. Bathe in bentonite clay: It is considered to be an excellent way to remove pesticides and heavy metals from the body.
