If you don’t know by now, pay closer attention—pesticides are everywhere. They are on our food, in our water, and in the air. They find their way into our bodies through a variety of vehicles. We can buy organic, grow our food, and use fancy water filtration, but we are still exposed to these modern chemicals on a daily basis. The key to minimizing the effects of pesticides come through both minimizing our exposure, but also through detoxification and preventing their effects on our bodies.

So, how can you detox from pesticide exposure? Here are 7 tips on how to detox pesticides.


1. Milk Thistle

This plant is a member of the daisy family and has a long history of healing. It is primarily seen as a liver cure-all and is also said to be a great way to detox from toxic chemical exposure.

2. Sauna or Bath

Sweating is just one of the many great methods for detoxing your body. Encourage this natural elimination with the use of detox baths and saunas. Something else to note, consuming niacin,or vitamin B3, with sweating will increase the process of eliminating toxins. Your skin will flush and you may experience some discomfort, but the niacin is, over several days and increased dosages, breaking fat cells. Guess what’s in these cells? Toxins.

Additionally, try this simple detox bath recipe.

3. Fermented Foods

By ensuring your gut bacteria is in good health, your body is better able to combat invaders like the toxic pesticide chemicals.
