Detox Herbal Tea

During your detox, drinking a detox herbal tea or a purifying tea can serve a couple of purposes. First, while you are doing your detox it is very important to drink plenty of fluids. Drinking fluids will help to keep you hydrated and flush toxins from your tissues and system. Second, the tea recipes below are formulated with herbs that have specific actions that will work to help detox your organs of elimination.

The herbs in these recipes work to cleanse your liver, gall bladder, bowel, lymph and kidneys. The best places to find dried herbs are at your local health food coop, herbal shop or health food store.

These stores typically have a bulk herb section where you can buy the herbs in small quantities such as an ounce or two.
