Detox with Burdock Root

It is common that people skip going on a Detox diet because they are reluctant to go hungry. There are a number of ways you can detox your system after drinking. Rather than list up all the various ways to do this, I first recommend consulting with your doctor about the best way to detox. You never know if you may have any underlying health conditions that may preclude you from doing what I am going to recommend.

The actual Burdock Root may be difficult to find in your local grocery store, but you can usually find it in tea form at health food stores. Traditionally, burdock root has been used to remove toxins in the blood and improve the complexion of the skin. It also contains many micronutrients, some of them possessing antioxidant qualities, making it an ideal food for cleansing. If you can find it, try adding half a cup to soup. They are also quite nice roasted.


Burdock Root is an herb that is used as a laxative, a detox agent, a diuretic, and a tonic. It can be used both in combination and with other herbs to help detoxify the body. It is a very powerful herb, so when it is used by itself, it should be used in very limited amounts swelling at first to prevent the body from cleansing too rapidly and thus causing severe symptoms. It is a strong blood purifier and cleanser and has been used both to neutralize and eliminate toxic buildup in the body.
