Top 6 Winter Detoxification Strategies
Winter forces millions of Americans to adjust their lifestyles. They spend around 90% of their time indoors eating different foods with varying GMO and fat contents. Unfortunately, these adjustments expose you to more pollutants because outdoor air is 2 to 5 times fresher than indoor air. Further, your body undergoes notable changes since hormones, circulation, and metabolism need to adapt to a colder environment.
So, how do you protect yourself and your family from toxins this winter? By embracing detoxification as a part of holistic treatment for anxiety. Creating a more balanced environment of hydration, eating healthily, and establishing an anxiety-free lifestyle would also be necessary.
Here are six practical detoxing strategies you can begin at home to fight toxins. Afterward, consider booking a free consult with Dr. Peter Amato of Inner Harmony Wellness Centers. He’ll discuss how he can naturally test your toxicity levels and elevate your detox program through various modalities and targeted all-natural treatments.
Detoxification and Mental Health: Here’s the Scientific Connection
Let’s start by establishing the scientific link between detoxification and holistic anxiety and depression treatment. According to Psychology Today, detoxification is essential for all holistic anxiety and depression treatment programs. It includes mental health recovery, PTSD, depression, and addictions. Science shows that stressed and depressed people suffer inflammation and metabolic byproducts that are difficult to excrete. These accumulated toxins affect one’s physical health and disrupt efficient brain function.
Top 6 Detox Strategies
So, how do you protect yourself and your family from toxins this winter? Here are practical detoxing strategies to fight toxins.
- Mind your diet
We start our journey to depression and anxiety-free winter where it matters the most—food. You are what you eat, and successful detoxing depends on your diet. However, consult a doctor before commencing any intensive detox plan, especially if you have obesity, diabetes, or high blood pressure. Here are practical guidelines for detoxing diets:
- Get most of your nutrients from soups, cleansing broths, juices, or raw veggies.
- Take more eggs, whole grains, raw nuts, and vegetables.
- Eat three smaller meals daily with a 200 to 250-calorie intake.
- Avoid milk, cheese, and yogurt during detoxification.
- Skip sugars, desserts, and simple cereal carbs.
- Suspend coffee, alcohol, red meats, and chicken.
- Create a 30-minute movement and exercise daily plan.
- Reduce exposure to electromagnetic fields
Your winter indoor stay exposes you more to TV and other electromagnetic fields-emitting devices. Reduce this exposure by turning off wireless services when cell devices aren’t necessary. Also, remove all unnecessary gadgets from your bedroom, where you spend 1/3 of your time.
- Minimize indoor combustion
Winter increases fireplace usage and candle-burning. Try your best to reduce exposure to fireplaces and candle-burning. If you can’t avoid candle-burning temptation, use unscented beeswax candles or those scented with 100% natural essential oils.
- Avoid artificial scents
This holiday season attracts many scented products in homes to create a festive atmosphere. However, most synthetic fragrances have many unsafe chemicals. Excessive exposure to these chemicals means more toxins entering your body.
- Improve air exchange
Always ventilate your kitchen while cooking. Open windows while burning candles, using artificial scents, or warming yourself around fireplaces. You may also use high-quality air purifiers.
- Deal with the dust
Lastly, deal with the dust in your home this winter. You can vacuum and wipe surfaces with wet microfiber cloths to reduce dust exposure.
