Expert advice on how to eliminate toxins from the body


You might not realise this, but all the pollution around you is extremely harmful for your health.

Toxins are inevitable today in the food we eat, the air we breathe, and water we drink.  Over a period, the toxins that accumulate in the body oxidise and transform into free radicals. This finally translates into various ailments. To stay healthy, it is important that we eliminate toxins from the body.

Here are 4 ways to eliminate toxins from the body

1. Eat healthy

Healthy eating is the key to good health. Do away with processed foods and chemically grown fruits and vegetables. Avoid sugar as much as possible. Especially refined sugar. Such foods are not only difficult to digest, but also difficult to eliminate from the body. Since most processed foods use refined ingredients, it sticks to the body and therefore, can’t be eliminated properly. This can have extreme side-effects, later in life.

2. Exercise regularly

One of the best way to eliminate toxins from the body is by sweating it out. Exercising helps you do just that. It also keeps you healthy and active.

3. Drink lots of water

Drinking lot of water helps cleanse your system. It flushes out all the toxins from your body.

Water is also known to boost your immunity naturally. It keeps you healthy and prevents accumulation of toxins in the body. It is advisable that you drink 6 to 8 glasses of water every day.

  • Wellness is a theme throughout the resort. All food at The Green Table restaurant is organic and my lunch there was a delight, from the chilled beetroot and orange soup to the superb imported Black Angus fillet.

    All ingredients at this restaurant are sourced from local farms, and the resort is in the process of planting an organic vegetable garden. There are four more restaurants at Shillim Estate serving French, Mediterranean and Asian food, as well as customised food experiences, where guests can pick a scenic spot on the property to dine in private.

    After lunch I trekked up to the highest point on the property, a grassy plateau with grandstand views of Lake Pawna. From here, the resort’s isolation becomes wonderfully clear. The lake and its surrounding peaks are all you can see for miles around. Bike riding, trekking, fishing, picnicking and paragliding are the main guest activities on offer; there are also future plans for horse-riding at an equestrian centre.

    As the day drew to a close, I headed to the Valley Bar at the glass-walled Clubhouse, which has an outdoor deck for cigar enthusiasts. Sipping on a glass of Henschke Julius Eden Valley Riesling wine as the hills glowed orange in the setting sun was a suitable end to a spectacular day.

    In addition to the luxurious experience Shillim Estate has created, the retreat’s real achievement is giving guests the chance to dissolve into nature and truly escape from the world, while still being close to home
