3-Day Detox Plan To Remove Fat And Excess Water In Your Body

3-Day Detox Plan To Remove Fat And Excess Water In Your Body

Putting simply, Detox stands short for “Detoxification”, which is a term for eliminating toxins from your body. It is simply a strict kind of diet, dedicated to removing toxins from your bloodstream. Now, it could be that you just said that “it sounds difficult”, and in most cases, not wrongly. Yet, here we have a much more of a “humane” detox plan for you, one that you should not be fretting in trying it out for yourselves.

Oh and if you’re not sold just yet, we should also mention that this plan also helps in removing future fat and any excess water from your system!

Step 1: The Preparations

Just as in any other kind of diet, making preparations is an important part of the process, the groundwork if you will. When it comes to detox diet you should stop consuming any kind of dairy product for at least 2 days prior the detoxification process.

For most, if not all of us, it is hard on our bodies to digest dairy products, something that could very much thwart your detoxing process, which can be very frustrating to realize only when you’re just about to complete your three day diet plan.

Step 2: Diuretic Drinking

The night before you begin your detox plan, you should drink a home grown diuretic drink (tea is highly recommended). Two measures of Dark Forest tea should do the trick. Doing so will help you cleanse your digestive system of any kind of poisons, ensuring that you’ll still be able to achieve some success behind the bathroom doors.

Step 3: If Life Gives You Lemons…

The following morning, be sure to drink lemon water before you drink or chuck down those cereals as a power of habit. The lemon juice should be consisted of two lemons and a half cup of water.

We know, it sounds delicious already.

Step 4: Finally, Juice

You should be thrilled to hear that after drinking that lemon water and eating your breakfast, all that is now required of you is to drink one and a half cups of pineapple/grapefruit juice. The reason is that both posses a plentiful amount of antioxidants, which will serve you respiratory system quite well.

Sounds extremely easy after drinking that lemon juice, doesn’t it?

Step 5: Another Serving Of Juice

If you’re still thirsty, you’re in luck, since you should also drink between one and one and a half cups of carrot juice, between breakfast and lunch. The reasoning this time is that carrot juice is beneficial to your respiratory tract.

Step 6: And… More Juice

Well, you couldn’t expect any different than more drinking, could you? Drinking is known to be a substantial part of a detox plan. This time, you will be drinking one and a half cups of some juice that’s rich in potassium, during lunch. You can find a high concentration of potassium in beets, avocado, bananas, and more (google will name you all the rest).

Potassium will serve as a beneficial factor in cleaning your body.

Step 7: Detox From Mucus

Guess what? Instead of juice, we’re back to tea again! You should drink mucus-cleansing tea one hour before dinner time. Ingredients that should make their presence inside the tea are: peppermint, rose hips and ginger. This should help you prevent mucus build up as well as congestion.

Step 8: Juice Up For Bedtime

Just in case that you were missing juice, you should drink 340 ml of cranberry juice before heading for bed. Cranberry juice will help against bacteria in your lungs.

All of these steps should be repeated for the next two days as well. So drink well, and happy cleansing!

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

11 Hidden Benefits of Using Oil Diffusers

Affordable, relaxing, and healthy, oil diffusers are gaining popularity with people everywhere due to their extensive benefits. Oil diffusers work through the simple process of oil diffusion, which uses heat to turn oil into a vapor that is then spread around a living space. Diffused oil can have several relaxation and health-related benefits, including safe scent-dispersion, mosquito and mold defense, stress relief, and more!

Read on for 11 hidden benefits of using oil diffusers.

1. Safe Scents That Make Sense

Unlike candles or air fresheners, oil diffusers release cleansing molecules into your air that work to purify it, not overload it with unhealthy chemicals. Electronic diffusers also do not pose the fire risk that candles do. Plus, they contain the added feature of interchangeability, which means you change oil types for different scents and health benefits.

2. Stress Relief

Several lab studies have confirmed that diffusing essential oils like lavender have been shown to reduce stress and help relieve anxiety in medical patients. Preliminary studies have also shown that oil diffusers can help alleviate symptoms of depression.

3. Improved Sleep

Diffused oil has relaxing properties that can help people of all ages fall asleep quicker and sleep more soundly. Electronic diffusers not only have the option to mix and match different oil blends (Try a lavender, Bulgarian rose, and Roman chamomile blend to help with insomnia), they also run at a gentle hum that helps relax an agitated mind. Many also come with an auto shut-off feature to help conserve oils once you have fallen asleep.

4. Appetite Control

Much like gum, oil diffusers can help stimulate the senses in a way that works to curb appetite. New research has shown that diffused peppermint oil can help curb appetite by inducing a satiety response within the body. Diffused peppermint oil has also been shown to increase energy.

5. Bacteria and Mold Killing

When essential oils are diffused in the air, they break down free radicals that contribute to the growth of harmful bacteria. Eucalyptus, thyme, and tea tree oils are especially good for this purpose. Diffused oil is also highly effective when it comes to combating fungal yeast threats, as the oil help makes the air inhospitable for yeasts such as mold. Pine and red thyme essential oils are best for combating mold.

6. Decongestion and Mucus Control

Ever tried Vick’s Vapo-Rub? Its decongesting powers come from active ingredients made from the eucalyptus tree. In principle, oil diffusers work the same way as Vapo-Rub, except they diffuse their decongesting vapor all around the room, not just on your chest or neck. Oil diffusers have been known to cure pneumonia in lab mice.

7. Mosquito Repellant

Nobody likes mosquitoes — but when the trade-off means using repellants full of DEET, a toxic chemical that can be especially harmful to children, mosquito control can often seem like a lose-lose. However, scientists have shown that oil diffusers can be used as a safe and highly effective mosquito repellant. Studies have shown that a diffused oil mixture containing clove essential oil and lemongrass essential oil repelled one type of Zika-carrying mosquito, the Aedes aegypti mosquito, at a rate of 100%.

8. Pain Relief

While applying oils directly to areas of your body may be the most effective way to alleviate pain, diffusing essential oils can also be an effective means of pain relief. When we inhale healthy essential oils, they enter our blood stream and can help internally relieve persistent pain from headaches, overworked muscles, and sore joints.

9. The New Anti-Viral

Research into the anti-viral effects of oil diffusion is now just gaining steam. A recent study showed that star anise essential oil was proven in medical experiments to destroy the herpes simplex virus in contained areas at a rate of 99%. Another study showed the popular DoTerra oil blend OnGuard to have highly-effective influenza-combating powers.

10. Improved Cognitive Function

Diffusing essential oils has also been shown to improve cognitive function. Many essential oils have adaptogenic qualities, which can work twofold in soothing us when we’re stressed, and giving our bodies a pick-me-up when we’re feeling down or sluggish. By working to level out an imbalanced mood, diffused oils also help us to focus. There are also several essential oils which have been shown to help balance the body’s hormones. With prolonged use, these oils can work to repair the underlying causes responsible for hindering cognitive function.

11. Money Saving

With ten clear benefits of oil diffusers already outlined, there is one more that should now be obvious: using an oil diffuser will help you to save money. As an anti-viral, bug repelling, and stress-relief solution rolled into one safe product, an oil diffuser used with the proper oils will save you money on products you might otherwise be buying to help cure those pesky headaches or get your kids to fall asleep on time. If you’re wondering just how affordable oil diffusers can be, check the buyer’s guide to the best oil diffusers — you’ll be sure to find one that fits your budget!
