The primary goal of natural drug detoxification is to eliminate the toxins and remnants accumulated in your body as a result of using illegal or pharmaceutical drugs. This can be accomplished through the process of detoxification. Your liver processes all drugs as toxic compounds to be removed later by your body. If the remnants of these drugs are not removed, liver toxicity can occur. Fortunately, there are natural methods you can apply to help detoxify your body of drugs.

Step 1

Drink nine to 12 glasses of clean drinking water daily. Drinking enough water can help your kidney and liver functions to help flush out drug remnants. Drinking plenty of water will also help increase your capacity to sweat and cool you down when you are hot.

Step 2

Do cardiovascular exercises such as aerobics, swimming and running for one hour regularly. Exercising strengthens and stimulates your liver, kidneys and other vital organs. It also helps eliminate drug remnants through sweat.

Step 3

Eat 2 oz. to 3 oz. of dried or fresh seaweed daily. Sodium alginate is the active ingredient of seaweed, and this compound binds to drug remnants in your digestive system and prevents them from being absorbed into your body.

Step 4

Take one 500mg dandelion flower tablet with food every day. The active ingredient of this flower is inulin, which helps enhances the flow of bile while helping your liver detoxify the drug remnants from your internal organs.

Step 5

Drink one cup of fresh ginger tea every day to detox your body of drugs. Gingerol is the active ingredient in ginger. It induces sweating and removes drug remnants through your skin. Slice one whole ginger, put it in a mug and add boiling water. Add honey to taste.
