Most detox treatments rely on the consumption of diuretic foods or drinks that promote the elimination of toxins through the urine. Yet the mere act of sweating performs exactly the same function.

Thanks to perspiration, toxic substances escape through the pores. Research shows that sweating may be more effective than kidneys in eliminating wastes caused by modern lifestyles and exposure to toxins such as heavy metals, chemical residues, tobacco or pollution.

Sweating plays a vital role in the temperature regulation of the body. Without us realizing it, our body generates 0.5 to 1 liter of sweat a day. This amount can be tripled through regularly physical exercise.

Some professional athletes may lose up to 12 liters in a single competition.

After having sweated, the only thing left to do is taking a good shower. This itself will help you get rid of all unwanted substances that clog your body and you will eliminate bacterias responsible for bad odors.

Your skin will regain a healthy appearance and you will feel better in your head and in your body.

In the list of activities that produce sweat, running ranks first. No need to register for the next marathon but only 2 or 3 sessions for 30 minutes each week will do the trick.

If you are not used to running, get advice from a coach or club to make plan for a suitable training program. You will quickly become hooked because running gives an incredible feeling of euphoria thanks to the secretion of natural hormones such as dopamine and endorphins.

If you prefer indoor activities, you can practice squash or register for a Bikram yoga class, also called "hot yoga". The peculiarity of this type of yoga is that it takes place in a room heated at 40°, perspiration guaranteed!

 

Sweat yes, but not just any way

Everyone does not sweat the same way. So do not be discouraged if you do not feel like eliminating anything in the first few sessions. You will find that the more you exercise, the more you will lose water.

If sweat helps eliminate a lot of toxins it will also drain minerals essential to your health. It is therefore necessary to think of hydrating well after exercising. Regular consumption of mineral water rich in bicarbonate is recommended.

If you are regularly involved in physical activity, your body will acclimate itself and your sweat will be less loaded with sodium. You will preserve the minerals more easily while eliminating a maximum of toxins
