Just like proper hygiene on the outside, we must have proper hygiene on the inside. How do you know you are in toxic overload?
When we talk about toxins in the body, most people first identify the chemicals and contaminants they have been taught are harmful. These can include things like cigarette smoke, pollution and other environmental toxins, but the substances that can create toxic buildups within the body go far beyond these dangerous pollutants.
Did you know that even the water you drink can deposit toxins in the body? Processed food, undigested fats and impure water can create a toxic buildup within the body over the course of several years. This inner pollution can become harmful to your body’s lymphatic system, blood and nervous system. Reducing the buildup of toxins in the lungs, heart and vascular system and removing waste is the equivalent to washing your face or combing your hair each day. Taking care of what’s on the inside is just as important as practicing hygiene for what’s on the outside.
To keep your health in check and your body systems operating properly, make it a habit to remove toxins regularly. Consider the following:
Here at Wheatgrass, it is important that we serve and offer the best water in town! Our Kangen Water machine produces not only filtered water but 9.5 Alkaline Ionized Mineral water to help not only hydrate you but reduce the acid which reduces inflammation in your body. Chronic inflammation can eventually cause several diseases and conditions, including some cancers and rheumatoid arthritis. Did you know you need to drink half your body weight in ounces as a rule of minimum when it comes to water.
While detoxifying the body of harmful waste is important, increasing your nutritional intake is just as critical. This is best accomplished by following a primarily raw, plant-based diet with a vegan lifestyle or simply a 1-3 day JUICE CLEANSE. This can help you consume and retain the nutrients vital to energizing, nourishing, strengthening and healing.
Replenishing the body with nutrients is a key part of removing toxins.
Consuming raw fruit and veggies is the most effective way to get these nutrients back and juicing can also give your digestive system a break. Flushing out the poison is more effective when your body is getting all of the vital minerals and vitamins it requires.
We also offer the Activated Charcoal drink to help flush out toxins, however we advise not to take with medicine several hours before or after taking. It has a light refreshing lemon taste so don’t let the black color fool you.
Vitamins to The Rescue

Regulating your digestive system is one of the most effective ways that you can promote your body’s detoxifying process. Moreover, healthy and regular bowel movements – between two and three times per day – are important for the overall health of your body. If you have trouble managing, our supplemental Cleanse or Detox has been shown to improve regulation. These may be beneficial for you.
Focus on Fiber
Did you know that dietary fiber is the No. 1 tool used by the body for removing toxins and heavy metals effectively and naturally. Proper detoxification is done with healthy amounts of fiber, which most people on the Standard American Diet fail to acquire. Natural options for upping your fiber intake include beans, ground flax seeds, chia seeds and lentils. (We have a great Lentil soup and Taco soup, Power Balls and Mila (organic micro sliced chia seeds can be added to your smoothie) all served from our menu to help you focus on your fiber!
Can you remember the last time you were sweating excessively from a workout or physical activity? If so, that’s great because that means you were simultaneously ridding the body of toxins through the skin. Not only were you getting your regular exercise, but detoxifying the body as well. Sweating is one best ways to eliminate the toxic buildup of contaminants in the body. Best of all, exercising is something you may already be doing anyway, making it a win-win.
