The first step to living a drug and alcohol-free life is to get your mind and body on the same page. Detoxification does just that by cleaning out the unwanted toxins that are detrimental to your health. After checking into a West Palm Beach drug rehab center, you can start down the path to living healthier and happier.

4 Steps to Detox Your Body
Cut Off the Source
The obvious beginning of detox is to stop drinking and consuming drugs of any kind. It is always wise to consult with a doctor beforehand and never detox on your own. You are likely to experience some side effects, such as vomiting, nausea, headaches, sweats, and other unpleasant physical and mental symptoms. Your body will be shedding the toxins which have built up.
Re-hydrate Your Body
Alcohol dehydrates your body. By drinking lots of water, you can eliminate headaches, muscle pain, and fatigue associated with detox. The more water you drink, the more toxins you end up flushing out.
Put Good Nutrients In
Change your diet to include large amounts of nutrients. Drinking all-natural juiced fruits and vegetables is basically a short cut to getting all the vitamins and minerals your body needs. You can drink about five times the vegetables and fruit than you can eat. If you do not have access to fresh juice, try including a multivitamin in your daily routine.
Get the Toxins Out
Exercise is the best way to start ridding your body of its unhealthy build-up. By accelerating your heart and causing your body to sweat, you are excreting toxins through your pores. An added bonus of exercise is the production of endorphins, which will keep you in better spirits when irritability strikes.
The decision to begin detox is a big step in itself and not one to be taken lightly. If you or loved one is ready to detox, it’s important to remember going through it on your own can be extremely harmful. Don’t go it alone.
