Expelling Waste and Toxins from Your Body with Herbs and Spices!

To encourage the body to dispel the bad cells and elements causing a lower immune system, we want to remove the waste as easily and efficiently as possible. There are some foods that we can easily incorporate into our diet and increase our quantity of to encourage the body to eliminate as much waste product as possible.
Check out these spices and herbs and start adding them into your daily diet:

Spices:

• Nutmeg
• Cayenne pepper
• Cinnamon

Herbs:

  • Rosemary
  • Chives
  • Cilantro
  • Basil
  • Parsley
  • Spearmint

Vegetables:

  • Ginger
  • Garlic
  • Kohlrabi
  • Spring onion/scallion
  • Leek
  • Turmeric
  • Eggplant/Aubergine

Fruit:
• Lemon
• Lemon zest

These also closely link with the “warming foods” of traditional Chinese medicine, which expels disease by activating the organs to do this. They do this by giving back the qi imbalance through “warming” those organs. The traditional Chinese practices and diet to help with endometriosis will often include ginger, cinnamon, cloves, dates and lemons.

Turmeric is better eaten as a vegetable as it contains less strength in its flavor and can therefore be added to a medley of vegetables or stir fries without being noticed (though some women have found ways of drinking the spice form with honey).

You can easily grow many of these on the window sill of your kitchen and simply select a range to add to an evening meal each night, without the effort in having to buy them all the time. Parsley has been well-known to help get rid of bladder infections, which we know is often a side effect of having endometriosis or interstitial cystitis.

Kohlrabi is not a common vegetable but is definitely worth adding into your diet. It improves energy circulation and expels stagnation, exactly what we need for endo to leave! It contains high levels of vitamin C to help with our lowered immune system and contains potassium for energy.

One of my favorite drinks is always the ginger, lemon and honey combo! It can be consumed daily and is especially helpful just before your period and straight afterwards when you are having pain. You will feel “empty” inside and expel the bloating dramatically! I just love it and it tastes really yum.

What do you have growing on your window sill? in your garden? What spices do you use? Any drinks or “witchy brews” you want to share?

    Thanks Julie! Valid point. I totally forgot about this option. I try and avoid supplement where I can but yes definitely helpful if things need some correcting short-term!

    A good probiotic will also clean your digestive tract and expel toxins form your bowel. Great if you suffer from constipation or diareah(?).
