Natural Internal Cleansing
Natural internal cleansing is a practice more people should turn to for better health. In the modern society our bodies are bombarded with toxins from the air, water, chemical products and more. It is not easy to stay to a strict diet year around, but if you can do a natural internal cleanse even once a year you will help yourself greatly. There are a ton of gimmicks and fads out there, so I just wanted to list safe known ways to do a natural internal cleansing.
You hear it all the time I am sure, but water really is one of the best ways to cleanse internally. We are all made of between 55 and 75 percent water, and every system in our body relies on water to keep things going smoothly. You lose water through urinating, bowel movements, sweating and even breathing (your lungs exhale between 2 and 4 cups of water a day). Usually your body is a good indicator of when you get thirsty and need to drink water. Although when you get older it is harder for your body to tell, so there is the old 8 glasses of 8 ounces of water a day rule.
Eat more dietary fiber! Fiber is a great natural internal cleanser; there are two different types of dietary fiber. First is water soluble fiber and that helps prevent cholesterol and fat from being absorbed into the body. Second are water insoluble fibers that help with digestion. They help prevent irritable bowel syndrome, constipation and diverticulitis. Studies show people that consume high fiber diets get rid of waste faster than those on a lower fiber diet. High fiber makes everything work smoother internally; it also grabs and releases toxins on the way out. Fiber is also great for weight loss and cholesterol. Highest fiber foods are:
Herbs are a great source of cleansing and many cultures and nutrition experts recommended herbs. They are great for cleansing the liver, the main filter for the body that neutralizes chemicals from the environment, creates bile and filters blood. Some good herbs for detoxing are:

-Milk Thistle is great in protecting the liver from free radical damage and helps with treating alcohol damage, hepatitis and cirrhosis.
-Dandelion is great for the brain and liver.
-Burdock is high in antioxidants and great for detoxing & cleansing.
