You can easily add these foods (preferably fresh and organic, of course!) to your eating habits and enjoy their richness and benefits daily.

Along with these beneficial intakes, avoid foods such as refined sugars, saturated fats, alcohol, prepared foods... Practice regular physical activity and enjoy a sauna or steam room session to evacuate a maximum of toxins, in addition to the relaxing benefits.
