Ribwort plantain is one of my favorite herbs for detoxifying and energizing. This common field grass has been used for centuries for a variety of purposes and is known strong healing properties, and also is very good at stimulating the digestive system. You can prepare an infusion and take it first thing in the morning before breakfast. For a well rounded detox regimen, you can follow it up with one of the most cleansing fruit juices out there, Pomelo. In general, it’s a smooth move to incorporate fresh squeezed juices with no additional sugar added into your diet, especially in the morning. It’s a great way to jump-start your metabolism and help those pounds melt off.
Another fruit known for its cleansing properties is Pineapple. Try including it one or two times a week as a dessert or between meals to help brighten skin, aid digestion and cleanse the liver.
As far as vegetables are concerned, the more the merrier, but make a special effort to include the following on a detox diet. Among the most effective detox vegetables are Watercress, Cabbage (raw in salads dressed with lemon, like watercress), Bok choi, dandelion greens, celery and a fruit usually included in the vegetable group, the Tomato! But without doubt the most detoxifying and purifying the blood is the artichoke. All this, with a good vitamin supplement and a daily dose of Propolis, will definitely help you turn over a new leaf this fall. Since your feeling extra vigorous, why no take a getaway, rent apartments in Berlin and seek out the farmer’s markets full of top quality organic produce!
