You know green tea and berries are packed with antioxidants. You know that working up a great sweat is an amazing way to burn out some toxins. You know the best way to keep your body functioning as effectively as possible means not eating too much junk, sleeping well, and laying off the sauce. But this is life, not a commercial for a multi-vitamin, and sometimes what we know is best for us takes a backseat to what we want (or need) to do in the moment.
So, if you are feeling sluggish and moody because of an influx of toxins in your system, here are two insanely powerful solutions to help you wring your body clean, and help you sleep better, feel better, and live better. Check them out.
Heal with Himalayan Bath Salts
Himalayan bath salts detoxify and re-mineralize your body, soothing away muscle aches and even joint pain. We’re talking Epsom salts on steroids. Himalayan salts contain 84 essential minerals including bromide, calcium, magnesium and potassium, which is incredibly important for your blood after a night of excess.
In fact, natural health experts say that a bath in these salts is equivalent to a three-day fast, and the experience is so intense that it is recommended that you take a rest after you get out of the bath. Your body is detoxifying and reabsorbing at such a high rate that many people experience an increase in their heart rate while in the tub. For this reason, Himalayan bath salts are NOT recommended for pregnant women or those with heart problems or high blood pressure.
TIP: If you are planning to use these salts as more than a scrub (i.e. are planning to bathe in them) and you are unsure how they will affect you, we recommend starting with a foot soak and going from there.
TRY TULSI TEA!
Also known as the ‘Queen of Herbs’, Tulsi tea is an ancient India herbal medicine that can soothe nerves, promote feelings of calmness, promote cardiovascular health, get rid of headaches, aid in digestion, help you lose weight, protect against certain kinds of cancer, detoxify your system and cleanse your liver – which you’ll need after a night of drinking. Don’t get us wrong, green tea is great (and certainly more common) but if you can get your hands on Tulsi, it can help you rest and rejuvenate.
