If you think about it, our bodies have to put up with a hell of a lot of abuse by us! We subject our bodies to all kinds of toxic elements, including tobacco and alcohol. Our poor old bodies do their best to stop irreparable damage from occurring.
But, in some cases, it can be too late. Smoking is one of the leading causes of lung cancer, while liver disease is often caused by excessive drinking. Even if we don’t smoke or drink, we can damage our bodies with the food that we eat.
Eating junk food is always going to be more appealing than making a healthy meal at home. The only downside to eating junk food is that the lack of nutrients found in fruit and vegetables can cause our bodies to shut down. Cholesterol can cause problems with our blood supply and hearts.

I know that all sounds scary. The truth is; you are in control of what you give your body. Today’s handy guide will show you how to give your body a break with these amazing and natural detox tips. Are you ready? Good. Let’s get started!
Drink Plenty of Water
It’s no secret that we all need to stay hydrated to survive. A lot of the food we eat contains salt, even “low-fat” ready meals from supermarkets. To counterbalance our salt intake, we must drink plenty of water each day.
If you feel dehydrated, your body is telling you that it doesn’t have enough water. Leading health experts recommend up to seven servings of water a day. One telltale sign that you aren’t drinking enough water is to look at the color of your urine when you pee.
Anything other than a pale yellow color means that you aren’t drinking enough water!
Limit your Caffeine Intake
How much coffee do you drink each day? Did you know that more than two cups of coffee a day is bad for you?
Excess caffeine can cause your central nervous system to become over-stimulated. It can cause scores of medical problems. In some extreme cases, death can also occur! It’s also worth pointing out that tea contains caffeine, although not as much as coffee.
Drinking a cup of coffee can make you feel alert and give you a much-needed energy boost. Just plan your coffee drinking in advance and drink in moderation to ensure a healthy body.
Ditch the Booze
Beer, wine and spirits are social drinks. Some might say that certain alcoholic drinks offer health benefits. In reality, the downsides far outweigh the benefits. Become teetotal and ditch the booze from your life.
Get a Medical
For added peace of mind, you should consider paying for some Bluecrest health screening. A medical will help you to find out if there are any medical issues you need to be aware of. That way, you can adjust your lifestyle to suit.
Eat Healthy Food
It’s no secret that fruit and vegetables contain many health benefits. They offer nutrients that our bodies need, and can even help to make us feel better when we are ill.
