7 Detox Waters To Jump Start Your Metabolism

homemade-detox-waters

Hydration is an important part of life. More than that, hydration is essential for attaining optimum health. Water can help you maintain a healthy digestive system, a better metabolism, healthier skin, and it helps you efficiently eliminate toxins. For some reason, though, people seem to have a hard time drinking the right amount of water every day. They turn to sodas, sugary juices, energy drinks, and other beverages instead, but those don’t hydrate you!

 

What Are Detox Waters?

Detox waters are trending in the modern health world. The reason they have been dubbed “detox waters” and not “filtered water infused with real fruits, herbs, and vegetables” is because the latter doesn’t sounds as catchy. That’s just a made-up reason. By adding things like strawberries, mint, cucumber, pineapple, basil, or blueberries to clean water and drinking it, you absorb the benefits of the added ingredient(s), and that helps to detox your body.

 

Enjoy the following detox water recipes to boost your metabolism and help out your overall health.

 

#1: Morning Lemon Detox

We love lemon water here at Dherbs. This is probably the most basic of detox waters, but it can help you flush toxins from your body and nourish your skin. Lemons also help to inhibit the deposition of metabolic waste. Add a few slices to your water to reap the benefits.

 

#2: Raspberry Lime Detox

All you have to do for this recipe is mix 2 tablespoons of fresh raspberries and one lime (sliced) in one quart of filtered water. Let the water absorb the nutrients for thirty minutes. Drinking this can help to stimulate the digestive system and keep your kidneys, liver, and colon healthy.

 

#3: Blackberry Mint Detox

First of all, the blackberry mint combo is great for anything. Mix ½ cup of blackberries and a handful of mint in one quart of water. Since blackberries are loaded with antioxidants, they help to fight free radicals in the body. Mint also stimulates the production of bile and helps to burn fat.

 

#4: Strawberry Honeydew Melon Detox

You’ll need to halve 10 strawberries and add them to a glass of water with a few melon slices. This is a great drink to help hydrate your skin. Both the strawberries and melon are rich in vitamins and anti-inflammatory properties, so get to drinking!

 

#5: Apple Cinnamon Detox

Cut up two medium apples and two cinnamon sticks and add them to a pitcher with two quarts of filtered water. You can fill it up multiple times, too! Cinnamon is actually a great spice to help you lose weight, but both cinnamon and apples help to speed up your metabolism.

 

#6: Watermelon Detox

Watermelon can actually help you stay hydrated because it is primarily water. Add about one cup of watermelon cubes to one quart of filtered water. Drink this to help flush toxins from the body. Add a little bit of the rind to your water to help smooth out digestion.

 

#7: Grapefruit Rosemary Detox

Get a few pieces of grapefruit slices and one sprig of rosemary and add them to two quarts of water. Let this detox water infuse in the fridge overnight. The grapefruit helps with overall detoxification, while the rosemary has tons of antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties that work to relieve the body of stress and pollution damage.

    Q: I love to drink water, but I like to drink hot water you know boiling water slightly cooled. Is there a benefit, or disadvantage to this compared to drinking room temperature water? Secondly, the water I drink is boiled water. Alkaline water is not a privilege most Kenyans have. If 56% of the population is living below poverty line you do the math. So the water I drink is tap water, that I boil to make it safe for drinking. When I get to work I have Alkaline water as my work place provides me with that provision. I think this is detailed enough for you to get the picture and help. Once again (I love you) in Swahili for spreading the gospel!

    A:

    No difference at all, Beloved! Even the boiled water becomes room temperature water. You're doing fine! Thank you for your words as well! Much appreciated! Peace and Love!

    Q: I just recently completed the FULL BODY DETOX and have developed a taste for distilled water, with two additional gallons of water left. Are there any harmful effects of drinking distilled water over a prolonged period of time?

    A:

    Yes, it can leech vital minerals from your body. Spring water is better! But you should be fine finishing the 2 gallons.

    Q: Hi, thanks for giving people like me some hope that we can all be healed. I recently bought the FULL BODY DETOX and I see where I need to drink distilled water for the first 2 weeks. I am unable to find distilled water here (Jamaica) but I see deionized water is that the same thing as distilled water?

    A:

    It's not the same water but it will do!

    Q: I AM EXPECTING MY DETOX PACKAGE TO COME IN POSSIBLY ON TUESDAY. I WANT TO START REPLENSHING MY DRY FRUITS. 1. ALMONDS 2. PECANS. 3. RAW CASHEWS. I HARDLY EAT PEANUTS AND I KNOW THEY ARE NOT RECOMMENDED AT ALL. DO YOU RECOMMEND WALNUTS? MY FAVORITE ARE ABOVE. PLUS SHOULD I GET DISTILLED WATER? ALSO BEFORE DISCOVERING DHERBS, I PUT In A WHOLE WATER FILTRATON SYSTEM IN MY HOUSE AND I BELIEVE IT IS CONSIDERED PURIFIED WATER. IS THIS GOOD OR SHOULD I BUY BOTTLED DISTILLED WATER. I AM VERY ANXIOUS TO START DETOXING BECAUSE THIS IS THE FIRST TIME.

    A:

    Walnuts are good to eat during the Full Body Cleanse. Distilled water is the best water during the Full Body Cleanse, but your filtered water would also be okay to drink during the cleanse.

    Q: I'm taking the FULL BODY DETOX and I am noticing that I am extremely bloated and a lot of gas. I've taken this product before and don't remember any of this. Also my urine output is decreased from normal I drink a gallon of water a day? I drink the distilled water I was unable to find alkaline water.

    A:

    It's your body that has been through something, not the herbs. Your colon is speaking to you. Don't worry! Just keeping detoxing! Distilled water is good for detoxing!

    Q: I've been a vegan for 2 years now. I've done the FBD 3 times in these two years, but my urine is still yellow. The only time it is clear is immediately after I drink water (reverse osmosis water). If I miss a day of drinking water, my urine goes back to being dark yellow. Does this mean that my body is still very toxic? Also, is it normal to release urine 5 to 15 minutes after drinking liquids? I would think that water would need to stay in the body for awhile for proper hydration and cleansing.

    A:

    From what you wrote I would suggest you start drinking alkaline water (purchase an alkaline water machine, you can find various brands in our e-book "Alternative Diet and Lifestyle Manual"). If you are urinating within 10-15 minutes of drinking water you are not absorbing the water, and thus you require micro-clustered water which an alkaline (and ionizing) water machine does. I also highly recommend consumption of our Kidneys-Bladder formula (3 capsules per day).

    A:

    Formula #7: YOU'RE SUPPOSED TO TAKE ONE TABLESPOON FULL WITH WATER, 1 GLASS FULL! MIX OR STIR WELL AND DRINK! Formula #2: YES, BUT WOULDN'T RECOMMEND IT! WATER IS BEST!

    Q: I am interested in starting the Full Body Detox program. At this time, I would like to know which program is best for me. At current, I have started removing things from my diet as of 2 weeks ago (pork, chicken, red meat, I'm trying with the fish but it's hard!) I am not eating cheese but I still eat yogurt and every now and then I will eat a boiled egg (egg whites). I have removed soda from my diet, no coffee, I drink herbal or green tea, pomegranate juice or orange juice and I drink filtered water (I have a countertop filter that I change every 6 months and the Brita pitcher that I change every 2 months). Along with the supplement, is there an eating plan that you can suggest for me? I am eating more fruits and vegetables, but I would welcome suggestions on certain foods that I can eat while I begin my cleansing.

    A:

    The Full Body Detox kit comes with a prescribed dietary plan and notifies a person what they can and cannot eat during the detox.

    Q: Is sea salt and warm water a good natural laxative? If so how often do you recommend the use of sea salt for elimination? I was reading The Master Cleanser by Stanley Burroughs and it gives this recommendation, along with drinking lemon water mixed with organic syrup and cayenne pepper. Is it safe to give myself an enema 2xs per day using a hot water bottle filled with fresh squeezed organic lemon and distilled water? Asking this because Bzod had me to listen to 88.3 today here in Cincinnati and the guy (Mike) was telling how he does this regularly and has great results.

    A:

    Yes, sea salt in water is a mild laxative!

    You can do it as often as you FEEL the need to drink or take it. 

    You can also consume the Master Cleanse (cayenne, maple syrup, lemon juice) if you choose. You can drink this as much as you like depending on how you feel.

    And yes, you can perform enemas 2X a day! Enemas are very helpful for health!

    Q: I'm currently on day 3 of the FULL BODY DETOX and would like to know what exactly I can eat. I've only had water, tea, and oranges for breakfast, salads for lunch and dinner with a few cashew nuts in between. I would like to know exactly what you mean by combining foods together. Example, oranges and apples, are you saying they're not to be eaten together? If not, why?

    A:

    The ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL list great food alternatives during the detox. Food combining means do not eat foods not in the same category. Don't mix an acid fruit with a melon fruit. Don't mix fruit with vegetables. Don't mix acid fruit with sweet fruit, etc. Eat sweet fruit with other sweet fruit. Eat sub-acid fruit with sub-acid fruit. You wouldn't eat an orange (acid fruit) with an apple (sub-acid fruit). They are not in the same family.

    Please read our article on "Alkaline water" on our site under "Articles."

    Q: I recently purchased the FULL BODY DETOX and ANTI-VIRAL CLEANSE AND REGIMEN. I totally understand that healing is holistic and that changes must occur in diet, lifestyle, and only positive thinking will result in optimal health. I am noticing balding on the right side of my head. Of all the hair care products provided by dherbs.com, I was curious to know if using any of the dherbs.com hair herbs would affect the detox/cleansing regime? If not which would be the most effective in assisting me with hair loss? (Due to financial limitations I can't afford to purchase them all because I just purchased an alkaline water machine that set a brother back)Aside from performing the anti-viral cleanse regime. I eat plenty of cilantro and parsley, drink half my body weight in alkaline water daily, and eliminate stressors out of my life. I was interested in knowing what other follow up actions can I take to help assist me in overcoming this trial (virus) that has changed my life for the better.

    A:

    You have the right attitude and spirit! Kudos to you. For the hair inquiry, you can drink the HAIR-SKIN-NAILS TEA during your detox. In re additional pointers, work on your mind-reprogramming it. Use daily affirmations! Reinvent yourself. Meditate! Perform yoga! perform the "SEA SALT SOAKS" daily! Keep getting knowledge! Just be creative and follow!

    Q: I just got finished the Full Body Detox, and feeling good. But I still have the issue I was hoping the detox would take care of. I seem to have some swelling or puffiness under my ear; it seems to be the mucus gland, and or the lymph nodes by my jawbone near my ear, in the morning it always feels like there?s water in my ear. What would u suggest, I was thinking about the parasite cleanse, and I still have some sinus issues. I'm in MD and would like to get an ear coning cleaning, a foot detox, and a colonic, do u know of places in MD, or D.C.? Thanks again.

    A:

    Glad to hear your detox went well. Sounds like a lot of mucus buildup in the ear area. I suggest ear coning and lymphatic massage. Herb-wise, give the Parasite and Worm Kit and regimen a try; for sinus problems I recommend Sinus Formula and Mucus Buster. The Foot Detox and a colonic will do you wonders. However, I don't know of any places or practitioners of such therapies. However, a Dherbs resource is coming soon to help in situations like this. You may be able to get help at a natural foods store or Whole Foods Market where they have boards (message boards) where people list a lot of things.

    Q: I am doing the the Full Body Detox, the Anti Viral Cleanse, and then the 10 Day Electric Greens Cell Food Cleanse. I am trying to fully heal form so called HIV. I started seeing brown spots on my palm, and bottom of my feet. I am trying not to freak out. I am drinking distilled, and alkaline water. Also eating salads, smoothies(not diary), and fresh fruits. I plan on going to find a sauna and get my Charka balance. What else can I do to make these spots go away?

    A:

    Don't put too much emphasis on getting rid of HIV! Focus on optimal health, and well-being. Get your mind right! Recommended reading, The Mental Science Manual e-book. Subconsciously, and subtly you have already freaked out, and your body knows it. Relax! Chill Out! Focus on healing! Not on disease! You can and will heal! Keep the faith!

    Q: I started my FULL BODY DETOX yesterday and so far so good. I have been reading books off of the book list you provided in the ALTERNATIVE DIET AND LIFESTYLES MANUAL. I really have great expectations for this detox. Anyway to my question since I have started the detox I can actually feel my organ (I am assuming) moving around. It almost feel like the motion of a child but I know I am not pregnant (hubby had a vasectomy) and plus the sensation is up too high. Have you experienced this yourself or know some else that has experienced this. I have to admit that I have not drank the daily recommended amount of water I am suppose to but I have been eating raw foods and drinking herbal teas.

    A:

    People experience all kinds of things but most report their overall experience, not beginning ones. At this point I don't know what the case could be. Just trust in the healing process and take notes of your daily experiences. This is how you learn about your body. Good luck on your cleanse!
