Best Morning Detox Routine for a Healthy Life

  There is undoubtedly an overwhelming flow of advancements in medical fraternity that aims to heal and cure sickness; however, it seems to me that our society is sicker than ever. You have to understand, toxins affect us daily. These harmful toxins are present everywhere from the air we breathe, the food we consume, white goods we use, and so forth. The point is, living without a toxic buildup is impossible. But, we can surely develop an effective detoxification process to help our bodies’ release toxicity within.

Luckily, there are several known detoxification protocols who claim to provide you with the natural cleansing. If I were to recommend, I would encourage you to employ the below mentioned morning detox routine for a healthy life.

Start your morning with warm lemon juice

In order to clean the system and have healthy digestion of foods, it is strongly advisable to start your mornings with a glass of warm lemon juice. Unlike, regular lemon juices, this is a bit unconventional as it involves a few cups of warm water and not cold water. So start your day by squeezing the juice out of a lemon into warm water, and drink the lemon juice before having your breakfast. Stick to this warm lemon juice schedule for at least a month before you start seeing the results.

Exercise and Detox Yoga

It is a good idea to exercise for at least an hour every morning. We are not talking about just any form of exercises, but instead, exercises that make you sweat. Perhaps hitting the gym, walking uphill, hot yoga or boxing should be considered. 

Hop onto your yoga mat and start doing some detox yoga poses. By performing these yoga poses every morning, you are letting yourself have a wonderful start to your day. Yoga detoxifies and cleanses your entire system remarkably well.  You can start doing “Side Boat Pulses”, “High Lunge Twist Repetitions”, “Seated Twist”, “Shoulder Stand” and “Seated Heart Opener”.  All these detox yoga poses will help you eliminate toxins from your body and give you a thorough cleansing of your body from top to bottom.

Get your breakfast right

Breakfast is going to be the first meal of your day and it better be right.  Wholegrain is known to be the best to help in the detoxification process. Moreover, you can also think of adding asparagus in your breakfast menu since asparagus contains prebiotics and probiotics, which are pertinent to maintaining a healthy digestive tract.

In juices, you must include a green juice or a smoothie as it can help you in fetching essential nutrients required on a daily basis.

Detoxifying the mind

Enough said and done about detoxifying the body, now let’s focus on the mind. Just like the body, your mind too needs a lot of detoxifying and removing of clutter. One of the best ways to help your mind detoxify is by meditation. All you need is a 15-minute schedule in the mornings for meditation.  Or, you could even try breathing exercises. Acquire the right breathing skills and follow this technique consciously every morning. Breathing and meditation only for 15 to 20 minutes in the mornings will immensely help your mind.

Dry brushing your body

You cannot forget skin detoxification as the skin is the largest organ of the body. Dry brushing has gained a lot of popularity in the last few years. Dry brushing involves brushing your skin in a particular pattern with the help of a dry brush, generally before taking a shower.  You brush your skin toward the heart, start brushing from the feet and hands.

Dry brushing is known for improving blood circulation, stimulating the lymphatic system and for overall rejuvenation of the nervous system. In addition, it is also useful in treating or at least reducing cellulite.  

Clearly, in the beginning, our skin is not used to feeling the roughness of brushes. But, over time, it will get used to dry brushing and will start producing enormous results.


The process of detoxification can be overwhelming, and rightfully so! It takes time and efforts to cleanse the toxic build up of so many years. However, don’t give up and wait for the results to finally start showing. Your efforts for detoxifying the body and mind will, slowly and gradually produce impeccable results. Start slow and consult a qualified health care expert to guide you at every step of your detoxification process.
