People nowadays are too much inclined towards detox methods, routines, and diets. Although the majority of them promote weight loss, the health experts are not supporting their usage. The diet regimes which are low in calories actually slow down the metabolism and cause severe side-effects and deficiencies, such as dehydration, nausea, fatigue, colon issues, and dizziness.
The human body is made to cleanse itself on its own. This detoxifying method is based on the kidneys’ synergy and the synergy between colon and liver as well. Kidneys flush out the toxins through the urine and purify the blood. The colon gets rid of the toxins even before they harm the body. The liver is in the first line of defense by acting as a natural filter and it prevents them to enter the bloodstream.
The human body has to receive all of the needed nutrients. For that reason, we suggest that you try the following amazing 48-hour colon cleanse diet plan which involves eating foods that boost your natural filters function. You need to prepare and consume the following snacks and meals for 2 days in a row:
