Detoxify Your Life: A Simple Guide to Reducing Toxins and Boosting Your Wellbeing

In today's world, we are surrounded by toxins that can significantly impact our health and wellbeing. From the air we breathe to the food we eat, these harmful substances are everywhere. However, our bodies are incredible machines capable of eliminating these toxins if we support them correctly and try to limit our exposure. By reducing or ideally eliminating our ongoing exposure to toxins, we can enhance our performance, improve our health, and elevate our overall wellbeing. Here’s a comprehensive guide to detoxifying your life.

1) Drink Clean Water out of Glass or Stainless Steel

Water is essential for flushing out toxins from our bodies. Everyone knows we need to drink the proper amount of water for optimal health and it’s equally important that you drink the best water possible. Tap water often contains chemicals such as chlorine and fluoride that may negatively impact your health. In addition water stored in plastic can have chemicals in it due to leaching caused by improper storage. Not to mention single use plastics are one of the worst products for the environment. Some people think their refrigerator filter or a Brita is filter is removing all the harmful chemicals. Although these filters do remove some chemicals, they also leave chemicals such as fluoride in your drinking water.

For clean water, here are the best options:

Whole House Water Filtration

I've always wanted one of these, however they are fairly expensive and you can get most of the benefits through less expensive options.

Under Counter Water Filter

These are fairly inexpensive and relatively easy to install. This is what I currently use and I love how easy it is to always have clean drinking water on hand. This makes it easy to use the filtered water for all cooking needs as well.

Berkey Countertop Water Filter

I used a Berkey for a long time and loved it. They work very well and the only drawback is having to manually re-fill it and sometimes wait for more water to filter. This can sometimes be challenging when you are wanting to use filtered water for cooking as well. I keep my Berkey around in case of emergency. You can filter pond or pool water through a Berkey and it will be safe to drink (I hope I never have to try this)

Drinking Vessels

For drinking vessels anything made of glass or stainless steel is ideal. I love drinking water out of a wine glass or a pint glass and when I’m on the move I always carry a large stainless-steel bottle. I have a Yeti, a Rtic, and other brands and they all work well. I like my Rtic and Hydrapeak bottles because I feel they are the same quality as the Yeti at a more affordable price.

2) Get a Filter for Your Shower

Tap water can contain chlorine and other harmful chemicals that can be absorbed through the skin, our bodies largest organ. Installing a shower filter can reduce your exposure to these toxins, leading to healthier skin and overall wellbeing. These are fairly inexpensive, so I highly recommend getting one to ensure you are bathing in healthy clean water.

3) Get Enough Sleep

Sleep is when our body repairs and rejuvenates itself. Ensure you get 7-9 hours of quality sleep each night to support the body's natural detoxification processes. A well-rested body is better equipped to eliminate toxins and maintain overall health. Maintaining a sleep routine where you go to bed around 10:30pm each night is very healthy. Here are some tools and hacks to improve you sleep:


Whoop Band

What get tracks get done and I believe the Whoop band is the best device on the market for tracking sleep.

Eye Mask

Having a completely dark space is essential to maximize sleep and it can be hard to create a completely dark environment with all the artificial lights we are surrounded by. An eye mask is a great solution for this and you can bring it with you when you travel so ideal dark sleeping conditions are always at your finger tips.

Beam Sleep Powder

I think this is the best product on the market to assist you with falling asleep. I'm amazed at how well this product works. After drinking a delicious cup of hot chocolate flavored Beam sleep I'm 30 minutes away from being asleep. It's been 100% effective for me and I wake up feeling refreshed after taking it.

Eight Sleep

To be honest I do not have one of these, but it is high on my list of future luxury items to purchase. The Eight Sleep Pod is on the expensive side, however its ability to maintain your ideal sleeping temperature under your sheets sounds amazing and I read a lot of reviews from people saying it works well.

Eight Sleep | Bed Cooling System


  • Make your bedroom only for sleeping (and sex). Training your body that sleep is what happens in the bedroom will help you fall asleep easier.
  • As you get into bed, think of 3 (or more) things that went right for that day. This will put you in a positive mind set as you drift to sleep
  • Two of my favorite things to listen to for good rest are ocean waves and a playlist of the 9 solfeggio tones.

4) Buy Organic Fruits and Vegetables

Organic produce is grown without the use of harmful pesticides and chemicals. Whenever possible, choose organic fruits and vegetables to reduce your exposure to these toxins. This simple switch can significantly lower the number of chemicals you consume.

5) Wash All Your Fruits and Vegetables

Even organic produce should be thoroughly washed to remove any residual pesticides or dirt. You can make a simple home vegetable wash using vinegar, water, and baking soda. This ensures that you are consuming the cleanest possible produce.

6) Avoid Processed Foods and Sugar

Processed foods and sugar can introduce numerous toxins into your body. They are often laden with artificial additives, preservatives, and unhealthy fats. Instead, focus on whole, natural foods that nourish your body and support detoxification. I’ve gotten in the habit of look at ingredient labels on different pre-made (processed) and it’s amazing how different the ingredient list can be for some products. Two examples are almond milk and hot sauce. You can find almond milk that has two ingredients (almonds and water) and then there are options that have 7 or 8 ingredients including multiple things that do not sound like food. The same goes for hot sauce. Easy rule of thumb is if you read an ingredient label on something and do not know what several of the ingredients are or they sound like non-natural ingredients, I would avoid that product if possible.

Here are a couple other ways I’ve been working to reduce processed foods and sugar in my life:

  • Instead of eating crackers or chips with dips, I try to eat organic vegetables. Organic baby carrots with organic hummus is one of my favorite snacks.
  • When I want to each a sandwich or wrap I make it into a bowl instead. Using quinoa, millet, or rice as a base instead of commercially made bread is a healthier option. A lot of additives are placed in commercially made bread that may or may not be toxins for our bodies.

7) Cook on Safe Cookware

Non-stick cookware, especially those coated with Teflon, can release harmful chemicals when heated. Opt for safer alternatives such as cast iron, stainless steel, ceramic, or aluminum. These materials are healthier choices for cooking and can reduce your exposure to toxins. I love my stainless steel and cast iron skillets and they last a long time.

Additional tip – I like using organic grass fed butter, organic ghee (clarified butter), or organic avocado oil for cooking. Olive oil burns at lower heat, which can create compounds that are not healthy to consume. Olive oil is great for salad dressings or poured over items after they are cooked for added flavor and nutrition. Try to consume the highest quality olive oil possible.

8) Reduce Plastic Use Beyond Drinking Containers

Avoid using plastic containers, plastic utensils, and plastic wrap for food storage. Plastics can leach chemicals into food, especially when heated. Use glass, wood, or stainless steel alternatives.

9) Use Natural Cleaning Products

Many household cleaning products contain harsh chemicals that can be harmful when inhaled or come into contact with the skin. Switch to natural or DIY cleaning solutions made from ingredients like vinegar, baking soda, and essential oils. Protective gear such as gloves, safety glasses, and respirators when you handle chemicals is critical to ensure you are not absorbing toxins into your body.

10) Exercise and Stretch Regularly

Regular physical activity helps stimulate the lymphatic system, which plays a key role in detoxification. Exercise also promotes sweating, another way your body eliminates toxins. Incorporate stretching into your routine to enhance circulation and support overall detoxification.

I have been going on morning walks for the last year and it is amazing. I usually walk for 15-30 minutes and it helps align my body and improves my posture. I never really feel hesitant to go for a walk either as opposed to the resistance I sometimes feel when I’m going to complete a hard workout in the gym. Don’t forget to stretch after you walk!

I think stretching is the most important part of overall physical wellbeing. Our body can hold on to stress and stretching helps move that tension out of the body. If you want to stay feel young, stretch at least 5 days per week.

11) Breathe Through Your Nose

Breathing through your nose can help filter out harmful particles in the air before they enter your lungs. Nose breathing also promotes better oxygen exchange, which is essential for cellular function and detoxification.

Nose strips and mouth tape while sleeping are great ways to encourage nose breathing.

12) Add houseplants to your home

Keeping plants in your home will help improve air quality in your home and add life to your living environment. You can also add an air purifier to your house to help filter toxins.

13) Choose Natural Personal Care Products

Many personal care products, including shampoos, lotions, and cosmetics, contain chemicals that can be absorbed through the skin. Opt for natural and organic products that are free from parabens, phthalates, and other harmful ingredients.

14) Sterilize your Toothbrush in between uses

The human mouth is filled with bacteria and when you brush your teeth and then let your toothbrush sit out in a warm moist environment (the bathroom) you are encouraging any bacteria left on your toothbrush to grow and then putting it back in your mouth, which can have negative health effects (especially oral health).
