Detoxing is not an easy process and it actually takes time to achieve. While the body can handle detoxification at its own rate and in time, there are things that can be done to help the body eliminate the chemicals left behind after marijuana use to clear the body complexly.
While there are products that can be used for the process, there are still ways that can be applied to aid the body to naturally detox from marijuana use. This makes the process much shorter.
Sometimes you may be required to take a drug test. There are various situations where this is necessary and it may include job interviews and sometimes participating in things such as championships or games. When you have some time before you are needed to take the test, you may have a chance to get negative results.
The things that can be done include:
Eating the correct food types
Some foods aid marijuana detoxification, making it smoother and faster. There are also foods that may slow down the detox. What you should know is THC is fat-soluble. This means that you should stay away from any fatty foods as they will end up absorbing the chemical and this give it new avenues to enter the bloodstream. Instead of such a diet, concentrate on vegetables and fruits. Make sure that food is nutritious and full of antioxidants to ensure that the body works optimally. The fiber helps in the redirection of the chemicals from the body through excrement. Avoid junk food.
Whole grains and legumes should also be included in the diet as they are amazing for detoxing. Foods that are rich in vitamin niacin like potatoes, tuna and avocados are the best. Niacin flushes out toxins and is good at clearing the system. Also, include foods with vitamin C, magnesium, and potassium. This includes citrus fruits, tomatoes, leafy greens, bananas, melons and tomatoes among others.
If you want to detox, then you need lots of water for it to be successful. Water is needed when you are flushing the body. This includes the THC metabolites. If you do not have enough water, the movement is limited which is bad. Drinking a lot of water means that you excrete lots of fluids through sweat and urine.
You need to be up and about. Exercise as much as you can. This is because of the concept of elimination of fluids. When you work out, you lose a lot of fluid through sweating. You also feel the urge to consume more water, which is very good for the body. The metabolism increases and therefore you burn the fat tissues that store the THC making the cleanse successful. Avoid working out the night before or on the day when you are required to do the test as the THC may be released from the fatty tissues. You can also go to a sauna where you will sweat more without much effort.
A lot of detoxification also happens as you sleep. Rest as much as you can to allow the body to function at an optimal level. Get as much sleep as you can and try to relax. When the body is stressed, it will not detox, as it should.
