In order to keep everything running properly, we must cleanse our body every now and then. There are many different detox methods that work through the skin or some of our organs. Fruit juices cleanses and skin detox methods are effective, but a soup cleanse might be the best.
Just like the name suggests, soup cleanses clean your body with soups. Soups are a powerful detoxifier – they can provide the body with nutrients which are required for proper function of the organs, and will improve the function of different organs such as the gut, liver and skin.
The soup cleanse will also improve the body’s absorption of nutrients and strengthen your immune system, effectively improving your overall health.
A good soup cleanse lasts for 3 days. The treatment starts with 1 phase per day in the beginning, and ends with 3 phases per day after a month. The average amount of soups you should consume in a day is 5-6.
The soups should be strictly vegetable or bone broths which will provide your body with enough fiber and other essential nutrients. You also need to stay hydrated during the process – drinking plenty of water will make sure there aren’t toxins in your body, which will help you stay energetic and flexible.
The amount of water you need to drink every day stands at ½ of your weight in ounces. You can prepare the soups in advance in order to stay more organized during the treatment.
