Now more than ever as we all try to get back to a normal routine following the global pandemic, there’s a call for detoxification of our mind, body, and spirit. At our biological and holistic dental office in Wilmington, we know firsthand the importance of having not just a healthy mouth, but a healthy body and mind also.

Tip #1: Help Figuring Out Exactly What Detoxification Means

When you hear your primary care or holistic health provider talk about detoxification they are generally referring to a specific set of biological processes responsible for getting rid of harmful substances from your body. And by harmful substances we’re talking about:

  • Sugar
  • Alcohol
  • Pollutants
  • Household chemicals
  • Waste produced by our own cells

Like this recent article says, the detoxification process requires participation and coordination of “several body systems, including the circulatory system, liver, intestines, kidneys, and more.”

Tip #2: What You Need to Know Before You Begin

Do you know how you can make the most of your detoxification experience? By making a change to your diet and lifestyle choices while providing your body with specific nutrients and nourishment. Your Wilmington holistic and biological dentist will also tell you that this is a good time to assess your mental health needs and how to better feed your mind.

The article suggests having these things in place as a good starting point for your detoxification program:

  • Reducing the amount of toxins in your diet and lifestyle
  • Regular exercise to get your circulation going
  • Working up a sweat to release toxins
  • Normalizing bowel function
  • Making sure you’re drinking plenty of water

It’s important to note that before making any changes to your diet or lifestyle that you always discuss it with your primary care physician or wellness coach. You’re always welcome to ask questions about your oral and overall health at our biological and holistic dental office in Wilmington.

Tip #3: Don’t Forget About Your Mental Health

If you want a full-body detoxification, you can’t simply avoid including your mental health too, but how? Start by really taking a good long look at how you rely on social media. Maybe it’s time to take a break from all platforms to recharge your mind. It’s important to get outside and be with nature as much as possible too. Nature therapy has been found to mitigate the modern-day “stress state” and “technostress.” Are you more of the creative type? Express yourself through art or music to relieve menacing mental stress.
