During a detox you are basically helping your body to eliminate harmful toxins which can contribute to many common ailments as well as serious diseases. There are different ways that you can do a detox and some of these include a juice fast, raw food detox, colon cleanse or by using other remedies. Ginger is one of the remedies that can help your body to detoxify and eliminate harmful toxins.

What is Ginger

Ginger is a spicy root that is commercially grown in the warmer regions of the world. It has a light brown skin and has a yellowish and juicy flesh on the inside. You can purchase it year round in most grocery stores around the world. Thus you can easily make ginger a part of your daily diet and at the same time obtain all the health benefits that are associated with it. Some of these benefits include improved digestion, a healthier heart, and can prevent cancer as well as the common cold, and can help your body to detoxify.


Antioxidants are the substances which help your body to eliminate harmful toxins from your body so that you can enjoy a long and healthy life. Ginger contains these antioxidants which help to eliminate toxins.

Ginger Tea

Ginger tea is a great way to get the detoxing process started. Not only is it tasty but it is easy to make as well. Ginger tea is safe and you can sip it all day if you like in order to remove as many toxins as possible.

To make the tea simply boil a small piece of ginger in water for about 10 to 15 minutes. After you are done boiling the tea you can add other ingredients such as cinnamon, nutmeg or cloves, as well as a natural sweetener such as raw agave nectar or honey. Do not add sugar as sugar is toxic and will hinder the detoxing process.

Ginger Bath

Another way that you can use ginger to detoxify is to take a hot bath in ginger water. All you need is approximately 1/4 to 1/2 cup of grated ginger and add that to your hot bath water and relax in the bath for at least 30 to 60 minutes. After a few minutes you will begin to sweat out the toxins through your skin. If you experience a severe throbbing in your head (which is a symptom of detoxifying), you may sit up in your bath, but stay in the water as long as you can.
