By definition, natural drug detox means helping a body to clean itself helping it with mild, non-aggressive means and methods that speed up removal of toxins. Normally such detox is being used when a person is either at home after actual active detox in a treatment facility or is required to go through drug testing and needs to get clean within a certain, often quite short, period of time. Beside various foods and liquids and their mixes that accelerate one’s metabolism allowing to get rid of toxins in less time, there are also plenty of special products, manufactured of herbal and other natural ingredients to not cause any harmful effects on one’s health and also remain undetected in a person’s system while establishing and supporting necessary balance of various vitamins, minerals and other substances.
Use of any drugs whether they are prescription, recreational or over-the counter ones, leads to their accumulation in a body. Active abuse or consumption of higher dosages than prescribed by a specialist ends up with drug addiction, as well as heavy or extreme level of intoxication of one’s system. In cases when a person has serious addiction and heavy toxins exposure, it is necessary to undertake a controlled detoxification with help of doctors and means that alleviate withdrawal symptoms. Natural drug detox is a measure that will not do much good here, unless there are no much more serious detox methods involved. However, if one’s level of toxins exposure is light and withdrawal symptoms do not cause any particular problems and discomfort, establishing a healthy diet with high levels of nutrients, vitamins and other substances that restore balance of our system can be quite a useful thing to do to speed up the pace of drugs leaving one’s organism.
There is a number of foods, herbs, liquids, mixes and even special detox products a person could use to get detoxified faster and smoother. Also, they can increase one’s chances for passing a drug test, though certain things work for certain types of test (urine, blood, hair etc.), and also do not guarantee 100% success. Though no detox means actually guarantee success alone, everything always goes in a combination of definite measures, foods and products. Anyway, these things do help in reducing level of toxins in one’s system, what results into both better state of one’s organism as toxins harm it less time and more chances to pass testing if this is the challenge a person is facing.
- B2 and B12 significantly help in getting through urine test by giving it yellower color that can otherwise be affected either by drugs themselves of methods one has used to get the sample ‘cleaner’, like dilution. In cases of manipulating with a sample it often changes its natural color or composition and balance of substances that are supposed to be there (e.g., creatine). B-complex helps in restoring balance of necessary substances in a whole body, but has to be taken regularly some time before testing. However, one should always consult a doctor provisionally to find out whether taking any vitamins will not be harmful and disrupt the balance of their system instead of restoring it.
- Omega-3 oils that can be found in avocado, olive, flax seed oil etc. can absorb toxins by lubricating intestinal walls and further removing them from one’s body. Those can also be found in drug stores, but overdose, as in all other cases, is dangerous.
- Vitamin C is considered to be one of the best detox vitamins. It works by transforming toxins into digestible things that eliminate the harm that the former are doing to one’s body and also speed up the process of leaving a person’s system. Those can be found both in drug stores and in such natural foods as kiwi, black currant, strawberries, papayas, citrus fruits, guava, melons, broccoli etc.
Water definitely goes first here. It quickly and successfully flushes toxins out of a system, making a person to urinate often. Professionals recommend drinking from 9 to 12 glasses per day. However, those numbers are still approximate and depend on a person’s state of physical health. In some cases that much water may be harmful or even dangerous to one’s life, so it is necessary to be attentive to yourselves. Lemon water helps to detox either, but smaller dose (3-4 glasses) is good for this purpose. Juices are a great way to go as well (freshly squeezed are the most preferable, of course). While being much richer with vitamins and minerals (by drinking fresh juice you can get a few times more of these as you could if you tried eating fruits or vegetables), they do not put extra stress on your digestive tract. Also, smoothies can be of use here, too, as they are pretty close to juices. Green, ginger and herbal tea are options to consider as well.
These can be added as a good food supplement and assist in cleaning one’s body from drugs and other toxins. Depending on one’s personal taste, garlic, licorice root, black walnut, dandelion can help.
Fruits, vegetables, berries, yogurts, nuts, seeds etc., plenty of food is helpful in smooth natural body detox. When you choose the best ones for you, pay attention to how much protein, fiber and nutrients they contain. The more, the better.
Special Market Products
Designed for various purposes, these products provide significant help in cleaning one’s body from drugs or at least masking their presence for the short time, if a test is ahead. Normally composed from natural ingredients, such as various herbs and nutrients that enrich our system, they make either immediate effect or an effect-within-a-short-time, if speaking about complex detox programs. One can also choose a product for certain type of test and acting within certain time in order to meet the challenge as prepared as possible.
However, if you have received a note that you’ll have to face drug testing in a short time, natural detox alone will hardly work. But there is no need to panic, as combination of some natural home remedies with market products manufactured specifically for this purpose will be quite a good way to go with. You just have to carefully consider your odds and make a choice that would suit your case best.
