Rejuvenate your Body
Did you know that the human body can work to repair itself? Yes, it can! While it is not capable of repairing certain problems due to various illnesses and diseases, the body has the ability to heal. In fact, there are between 30 to 40 trillion cells in our bodies that work tirelessly to keep us going, maintain balance, and recover when we get sick.
However, these cells are not all-powerful; they also get damaged and undergo 'apoptosis' — a fancy word for cellular death. When we abuse our bodies such as in overworking or putting too much stress both physically and mentally, cells can be affected on a much deeper level, sometimes in large quantities. So, remember this:
Our bodies are built to recover and heal itself—but most of the time, this rejuvenating process requires help. And since we cannot undo the wrong things that we allowed our bodies to experience, we can still work out on ways to live a healthier, longer, and more active life provided that we give it a chance and maximum help.
Take charge and move towards a healthier life
No matter what the current condition, concerns, and problems you have with your health, you can still help your body and move towards a healthier life.
You can decide to stop doing things which can harm your body like smoking, drinking too much alcohol, not getting enough rest or sleep, living a sedentary lifestyle and so on. You can also try ways to keep it healthier by eating nutritious foods, taking supplements, exercising, stop worrying, and doing full-body cleansing or detox.

How to move towards a healthier life and ageing?
Ageing, cell damage, and sickness are inevitable. But living healthier and happier is what truly matters. For many adults, this is like an unrealized and unachievable dream. Why? Most of them anticipate that it won't work, and others fear that changing certain lifestyle choices is difficult. That is why, before looking for steps to achieve your goal to rejuvenate, keep in mind that the state of your overall health in the years to come is the sum and the consequences of how you treated your bodies right now and in the earlier years of your life.
The next step to moving towards a healthier life and ageing is by taking appropriate measures and ways to rejuvenate your body. It may not be easy, but once you get used to the healthy habits and lifestyle, you'll find it easy and worth it.
Assess the damage you have done to your body
Now, go in front of the mirror and ask, "is the person you see in the reflection what you want to see?" And while you are looking, think about "what is it that you can do to help your body?"
The lines in your forehead, the puffy under-eye bags, saggy dehydrated skin, and more. While you cannot rewind the years to do something about these manifestations that usually come with how you neglected and abused your body years ago, you can assess the damage, what could have caused them, how you can repair your body. And regenerate its cells.
Natural Ways to Rejuvenate your Body
Here are some of the easy and natural ways on how you can heal and rejuvenate yourself towards healthy ageing:
♦ Stop smoking
If you have smoked in the early days, you cannot do anything to undo that. But, if you are still smoking, you can do something about it. This includes avoiding second-hand smoke and staying away from polluted air.
Cessation of smoking beats lung problems, heart diseases, and other illnesses related to cigarette use and smoking. Furthermore, once you stop smoking, your body gains back immunity.
♦ Exercise regularly and keep your body active
Exercise builds a healthy mind, body, and soul. And there’s no need to say more because by now, you probably have heard a lot of people talking about how beneficial exercise is.
So, starting today, choose your favourite movements and suitable exercise regimen. Then, commit to doing it and making it a regular regimen, no matter what. Unless, of course, your primary physician is against it.
♦ Stay happy and keep your mind free from stress
Mens san in corpore sano. Okay, don't panic. This is not a spell that we took from witches or some bad words. Mens san in corpore sano is a Latin phrase for 'A sound mind in a sound body.' Sometimes, it is also translated as 'a healthy mind in a healthy body.'
This Latin creed phrase is widely used in the history of human evolution as well as in many scientific studies. They say that there is a definitive association between our mental health and physical well-being. Simply put, just as physical exercise is essential to have a healthy body, mental and psychological well-being are also important.
So, learn to manage stress from your relationships, finances, and other things that can make you angry or worried all the time. Stay happy by spending some quality time with your family and friends. All these habits can help you have emotional stability.
♦ Cut out fast foods, junk, and oily foods from your diet
Yes, you can't go on without your daily coffee drink. You love your fizzy, sugary drinks. You enjoy sinking your teeth into a juicy, tender steak, lick ice creams, bite flavorful cakes and yummy pastries. Yes, they are irresistible at times. But, these foods and drinks, are the foods and beverages that you should cut down and definitely avoid to cleanse and help your body rejuvenate.
♦ Get adequate rest and sleep
When you have reached a certain age, you'll either become one of the workaholics, have trouble sleeping adequately, or getting too much sleep. Sometimes, it cannot be avoidable, but do not let your work, your sleeping problem, and other concerns be an excuse for not sleeping to fill your sleep duration quota. Seek physician's help if you need one because sleeping well is a matter of your health and well being, and there is no compromise to that.
♦ Eat healthily
And here we go again. We recommend that you eat plenty of vegetables and fruits. Also, try to avoid fewer meats. Healthy eating is what the body actually needs. Also, do not forget to drink plenty of water. Do not skip meals (especially breakfast!), except when advised by your nutritionist or health care provider.
♦ Avoid or limit alcohol intake
The liver is the major organ responsible for the metabolization and the detoxification of alcohol in the human body. It produces enzymes that convert the ethanol, also termed as ethyl alcohol, which is a chemical compound found in alcoholic beverages. Some studies say that low-to-moderate consumption of alcohol can be beneficial for heart health. But, while alcoholic drinks containing ethanol are legally sold around the world, consuming ethanol alone can cause coma and death. Also, excessive drinking of alcoholic beverages can cause a myriad of health issues. It can cause liver injury, including inflammation, scarring, and fat build-up, which can hinder the proper functioning of the liver.
As such, limiting or avoiding alcohol intake is one of the best ways to cleanse and detoxify your body to keep it running strong.
♦ Drink lots of water
Unless contraindicated to your current health condition, drinking plenty of water is good for your overall health and wellness.
You should drink water not only when you feel thirsty. Water hydrates your cells and regulates your body temperature, which is why people with high fever sometimes become dehydrated. Besides temperature regulation, it helps in the absorption of various nutrients, digestion, lubrication of joints, and the removal of toxins or waste products in the body.
For our cells to continuously undergo repair and restoration, water is necessary. Your body systems will not function optimally and break down vitamins and minerals for your body to use.
Health professionals recommend a daily intake of water of about four to six cups. You may need more or less depending on your activity, diet, lifestyle, and current health state.
♦ Start your day with morning detox water and drinks to rejuvenate your body
Adding extra ingredients to your morning drink, such as water, can boost its health benefits. Besides replenishing and hydrating your cells, it can help maintain your gut health and contribute to an overall healthy body.
Other reported benefits of drinking detox drinks include a better complexion, energy boost, enhanced mood, improved digestion and liver function, increased energy, pH balancing, reduced inflammation, and weight loss.
Morning detox water and drinks are actually affordable and pretty easy to make anywhere. Besides water, you just need any health-boosting ingredients such as herbs, vegetables, or fruits.
Simply cut your fruits or vegetables and chop them into smaller pieces and add them to your morning water. You can use cold or hot water, depending on how you like to drink it. Add as many pieces of vegetables or fruits as you want to make the flavour stronger.
Here are some of the most common ingredients that you can combine and add to water to make a detox drink:
- Apple and cinnamon
- Basil and strawberries
- Blackberry and orange
- Cayenne pepper and lemon
- Cucumber and mint
- Fennel seeds and lemongrass
- Ginger, lemon, and turmeric
- Grapefruit and rosemary
- Honey and apple cider vinegar
- Lemon and ginger
- Lemon and mint
- Lime and lemon
- Mint and watermelon
- Orange and lemon
Preparation for cold detox water and drinks:
You can mix the ingredients and leave the detox drink in your refrigerator for an hour to half a day to let the flavours infuse more deeply in the water or any base drink that you would like to use. Once the ingredients are adequately infused, remove the fruit or vegetable you added so they won’t decompose in your drink.
Preparation for hot or warm detox water and drinks:
You can either pour the boiling water over your fruit or vegetable slices or place all the ingredients in a small cooking pot and bring them to a boil. Let it steep for a couple of minutes the same way you prepare a hot/warm tea.
If you prefer one vegetable or fruit at a time, you can choose not to combine them. You can also crush or bruise your fruit and herbs before using them can help release the flavours more quickly.
Enjoy your detox drink!
Get ready to feel renewed, energized, and powered to face the day! You can make your detox drinks the go-to beverage of choice when you want to amp up your day, hit your body’s reset button, cleanse your system, improve your metabolism, and boost your circulation.
The ingredients are easy to gather, as most of them are available at grocery stores. You can drink it any time of the day, but most people prefer to take it in the morning.
♦ Add prebiotics-rich foods in your diet
One important thing for keeping your detox systems working well is by taking care of your gut health. This is because the cells of the intestines have an excretion and detoxification system, which helps protect the body against harmful chemicals and toxins.
To assist your gut, you can start by adding prebiotics-rich foods in your diet. Prebiotics is a type of dietary fibre that feeds the helpful and friendly bacteria in the intestines. These bacteria are called probiotics. They produce nutrients that are beneficial for the health.
Besides prebiotics, you can get probiotics by taking gut support supplements. You can take gut support supplements to avoid an imbalance between good and bad bacteria due to physical and psychological stress, poor dental hygiene, use of antibiotics, some form of illness, and poor diet quality. An unhealthy shift or imbalance between good and bad bacteria in the gut can cause problems with the detoxification systems, weaken the immune system, and increase the risk of inflammatory diseases.
♦ Limit your salt intake
Sometimes, detoxing does not only mean removing toxins in the body. For some individuals, going on a detox or a cleanse can also mean eliminating excessive water in the body. Excessive fluid in the body can happen when there is too much salt in the body, causing the cells to retain the fluids. It can also occur when there are problems in the liver or kidney. However, unless otherwise specified by your family physician, do not decide on your own to decrease or increase your water intake if you believe you have excess fluids in the body. Instead, get assessed and visit your family physician.
What you can do is curb your salt intake. Excessive body fluid is not the only reason for limiting your intake of salty foods. According to research, for every one gram increase in sodium (a component of salt) intake, the risk of diseases of the cardiovascular system increases by 17%.
Other Helpful Cleansing and Detoxing Tips
Here are other cleansing and detoxing tips to get rid of harmful substances and toxins from your body. This includes lifestyle practices and certain dietary changes that can help your body’s detoxification system and reduce toxin load.
♦ Opt to use natural household cleaning products
Instead of exposing yourself to potentially harmful compounds and chemicals from using commercial cleaning products, choose natural ones such as baking soda and vinegar. Natural cleaning products can be as useful as commercially-made cleaning agents.
♦ Add flavour to your dishes using herbs and spices
You can add herbs and spices to your favourite recipes. Some herbs contain active ingredients that can help remove toxins in the body. For example, you can use cilantro. It can aid in the excretion of certain toxins in the body, like heavy metals, including lead. Furthermore, certain studies say that cilantro can help excrete harmful chemicals such as phthalates and insecticides.
♦ Choose natural products for body care
Toxins do not only come from the food that we eat or the air that we breathe. We can also get them from what we apply to our skin, such as lotions, hand creams, shampoos, moisturizers, make-ups, deodorants, and other personal care products. These products contain chemicals that can increase toxic substances in the body.
♦ Try a social media cleanse
Don’t get us wrong, we are not against social media, but we believe it has pros and cons. And this is one of the mental cleanses that you can’t get behind. Why? You probably heard that there are many studies linking feelings of decreased self-worth, anxiety, depression, and isolation to social media. If at some point, you feel bad about certain social media posts, including terrible news and posts, it might be worth staying away from reading them for a while. If it is making you feel stressed out, then it is unhealthy for the mind.
When should you start doing these healthy habits?
When it comes to building habits that can benefit your health and wellness, the best time to start is right now! Remember that small decisions add up over time, so no matter how small an unhealthy habit that you are doing, it can cause significant health consequences in the future.
For instance, a mistake you are making every meal when you eat too much sugar can increase your risk of developing high blood pressure or high blood sugar. If you lack sleep or get too much sleep above the recommended hours for your age, it can wreak havoc for the remainder of your health later on in life. The adverse effects of unhealthy habits can really add up. Now that you know, you should really ditch unhealthy habits and start getting used to the healthy ones.
However, if you are unsure of what to stop or start doing, keep in mind that some habits vary from person to person. You may need a consult from health professionals, including your family doctor, in all these areas mentioned above. That is why you should not hesitate to seek for advice.
