Why is it important to cleanse the body periodically?
The toxins that accumulate in the body hamper the proper functioning of the organs, which means that the body grows weaker and becomes more vulnerable to disease.
How do you know if you need an emergency detox? If you feel a constant heaviness in the head or notice a lack of appetite, have bags under your eyes or you tire way too quickly, you most likely need to detoxify your body.
There are all kinds of herbs for making cleansing remedies but bay leaf is among the most commonly used. Here's what you need to make a remedy:
Detoxifying remedy with bay leaf
Ingredients: 5 bay leaves, 1 1/5 cups water.
Preparation: Put a pot with the water on the stove and wait for it to come to a boil. Then add the spice to the hot water and leave on the stove for 5 min. Next, take it off the stove, filter it (it's best to keep the mixture in a thermos).
Close the thermos and leave the bay leaf mixture to sit for 3 hours.
You can drink the remedy in small sips throughout the entire day - the important thing is not to drink it all at once. For detoxifying, it's recommended to drink it 3 days in a row, then to take a week-long break.
It is possible, while drinking the remedy, for your urine to change to a light pink color. Don't worry about that, it's completely normal - it means the bay leaves are doing their job and purging the salt and toxins from your body.
Additionally, the mixture may cause an urge for more frequent urination. The full effects of the remedy will be noticeable after 2 weeks.
Only then will you notice that you're once again full of life and loaded with energy, while the remaining unfavorable symptoms that accompany the accumulation of toxins will be completely gone.
