Today, more than ever, we must detox. The good news is there are plenty of ways to support detox that are both simple, affordable and even relaxing. The presence of toxins in the body leads to acne, fatigue , headaches, and even cancer. Usually people treat these issues with medication when all that may have been required is a thorough detox, supplemented with Spirulina.
Spirulina is loaded with minerals, enzymes, antioxidants and amino acids. Taking a bath with spirulina helps to nourish and soften the skin.
This is one of the best natural methods known to alkalize the body. Spirulina boosts the elimination of toxic components from our bodies. Many studies found that spirulina was able to remove heavy metals from the system.
Spirulina contains chlorophyll which is used for “detoxification” by helping remove toxins such as heavy metals and other pollutants from the blood
Using a powerful mineral base such as Epsom salts in a bathwater medium creates a process called reverse osmosis. This process pulls salt and harmful toxins out of the body and allows the magnesium and sulfates to enter into the body.
Add these ingredients to a detox bath:
½ cup spirulina, mixed in a pitcher of warm water
½ cup sea salt
7 drops essential oil (I like to use a mixture of lime, bergamot and grapefruit). (where to find)
CAN EVERYBODY TAKE SPIRULINA?
Though high quality spirulina is free of side effects, it does contain iodine. This means that people who are sensitive to iodine should avoid taking it. Additionally, people with hyperparathyroidism should also avoid spirulina.
Those who are highly allergic to seafood or seaweed should also avoid taking spirulina.
