According to a report issued by “The National Organization” for “Reform of Marijuana Laws” cannabis or marijuana is one of the most admired drugs in use in the USA, third only to tobacco as well as alcohol and it has been used by millions of American citizens, across the entire state. The active ingredient in Marijuana is called Tetrahydrocannabinol, better known as THC. It is soluble in fat meaning that deposits are left to accumulate in the major organs of the body, such as the lungs, liver and kidneys. One way that is thought to remove these deposits is to undergo a purge, or a detox, although there is no proof that detox purges are of any assistance in removing THC. You must consult with your doctor before you carry out a detoxification plan as they can be dangerous to some people.
One of the most common steps to a detox plan is to drink a great deal of water. It is recommended that everybody should drink at least eight, if not ten, glasses of water each day. This has the effect of flushing toxins out of your system and rehydrating your body. Cranberry juice is full of antioxidants and is recommended as part of a detox diet, especially mixed with spring water and wheat grass, although there is no evidence to suggest that this helps to remove THC.
Exercise is another good way of helping to detoxify your system. Start an exercise regime, preferably aerobic such as swimming, running and cycling. This will raise your metabolism, burn fat much quicker and increase circulation, all of which help to push toxins out. Ensure you do this on a daily basis but do not go over your physical comfort level otherwise you increase the risk of exhaustion and injury.
Have a sauna. These are hot and force sweat to pour from the body, which is another way of draining the toxins out. Make sure you drink water and juice regularly in a bid to keep yourself fully hydrated and to keep your electrolyte levels up. There is no evidence that suggest THC will be removed in this manner. Please consult a doctor before using a sauna as some medical conditions may stop you from doing so.
Eat a healthy diet that is high in whole grains and fiber and that has a high level of antioxidants, found usually in fruits such as blueberries and almonds and vegetables like spinach and broccoli. Avoid red meat, sugary and junk foods and dairy if you can. Try to eat several smaller meals, evenly spaced throughout the day, rather than one or two big ones.
Herbal teas are good for aiding the detoxification process, especially cleansing ones like dandelion. Root. The dandelion is supposedly good for the kidneys and liver although there is neither medical evidence, nor scientific, to prove that dandelion root is suitable as a treatment. Ensure you speak with your doctor before you sue dandelion root.
