1. Juice Detox
A juice detox is a mixture of vegetables and fruits that provides lots of vitamins, minerals and energy to our bodies and at the same time is purifying.
You can make homemade juices from plants like peaches, cucumbers, and apples. You can even add greens to your juices to make them even more healthful.

If you are considering implementing this type of detox, speak with your physician or nutrition expert first. Listen to your body and if including juice in your diet helps you to feel healthier or more energized, keep it up!
2. Water Detox
A water detox is exactly what it sounds like, you fast and drink nothing but water. This is a difficult detox to do but one that, under the right circumstances, can be very helpful to figure out what is causing problems.
For example, if you want to lose weight and get slim, you would make detox water with lemon or cucumber or ginger, which are known to cleanse body of toxins and reduce weight.
Remember to pay attention to your body and make sure that it isn’t suffering.
3. Plant-Based Detox
Eating a whole food plant-based diet can work as a detox without having to suffer deprivation. Simply eat plants without a lot of additives, fat, sugar or salt, and you will reap the benefits.
4. Raw Food Detox
This is also what it sounds like, but it doesn’t include raw eggs or meat. However, do eat raw plants, fruit, veggies, berries, and in some cases even honey. A raw food detox diet will give your body a chance to clean up the trash of everyday living and restore you to pristine health.
Enjoy these foods to your heart’s content.
5. Elimination Detox
Cut out the foods you think are causing the problem such as dairy, gluten, fat, sugar, salt and so forth until you find the culprit. Remember, sometimes the culprit is a combination of ingredients, so don’t start adding things back until you figure out what it is. Then slowly reintroduce specific foods and monitor your symptoms for possible reactions.
Detoxes can be a very important part of determining what is causing your symptoms in addition it also promotes the intake of foods and drinks that are either useful in flushing out toxins or are the building blocks of the body cells.
If considering implementing a detox diet consult your physician or nutritionist specialist first, so they can help evaluate different products and programs and recommend a plan that works for you. Practitioners trained in integrative and functional nutrition and medicine are well-trained in safe detoxification protocols and can be a wealth of information.
