4. Target specific organs: If we listen to our bodies we can often tell where the issue is. While a full-body cleanse has its benefits, targeting concerns can help alleviate symptoms faster.

Before you know it, you might become an herbalist.

5. Vegetable juice: When most of us think detox, we think of juices and smoothies. Guess what, there’s truth to that. The best thing you can do for your body is provide it with a multitude of fresh fruits and vegetables in al their variety. Leafy greens are notorious for their cleansing properties, but not everyone wants to eat them. Try out some fun recipes to make it delicious. Our favorite: apples, carrot, lemon, ginger, turmeric, beetroot, kale and cilantro.
