Detox after Hari raya

Its a great weekend for Hari raya!

Me with my 2 girl friends went to ranau for the weekend gateway and had spent a splendid time away from the city.
the gorgeous Kinabalu..cold and cold :
went to Poring Hots Spring at 7am! The visitor really crazy during the weekend, so we decided to go as early as 7am. We manage to get 3 tab for each of us.

Not forgetting the beautiful Mesilau! The flowers , the grass and the air..hmmm..splendid!

On the way back to KK, we went for hot madras Coffee at Simpang Bundu tuhan. U need to climb to get to the cafe, and the view is awesome!

Now time for detox, after consume lots of rice, ketupat, rendang, curry, kuih raya...waw...Here are some lists to do detox, for those who have no idea :)

1. Eat plenty of fiber, including brown rice and organically-grown fresh fruits and vegetables. Beets, radishes, artichokes, cabbage, broccoli, spirulina, chlorella, and seaweed are excellent detoxifying foods.

2. Cleanse and protect the liver by taking herbs such as dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle, and drinking green tea.

3. Take vitamin C, which helps the body produce glutathione, a liver compound that drives away toxins.

4. Drink at least 2 quarts of water daily.

5. Breathe deeply to allow oxygen to circulate more completely through your system.

6. Transform stress by emphasizing positive emotions.

7. Practice hydrotherapy by taking a very hot shower for five minutes, allowing the water to run on your back. Follow with cold water for 30 seconds. Do this three times, and then get into bed for 30 minutes.

8. Sweat in a sauna so your body can eliminate wastes through perspiration.

9. Dry-brush your skin or try detoxifying patches or detox foot spas / foot baths to remove toxins through your pores. Special brushes are available at natural products stores.

10. What is the most important way to detoxify? "Exercise," says Bennett. "Yoga or jump-roping are good. One hour every day." Also try qigong, a martial-arts based exercise system that includes exercises specifically for detoxifying or cleansing, as well as many other exercises with specific health benefits.

I have started today, and will end this Sunday! For a healthy body, why not?
