How should toxins get out?
- Through the bowel

- Get out in the fresh air every day and clear your lungs
- Drink at least 1.5 litres of still water daily to flush toxins out through your urinary tract
- Take herb teas such as golden rod or nettle to help support the function of your kidneys
- Make sure your bowel is working daily. If it isn’t, take a gentle laxative to get things going – try one containing linseed and maybe Senna for a kick-start.
