Wheat grass- a miracle herb
Wheat grass is a herb that is stuffed with miraculous healing properties. It works wonders for detoxification. It can be easily grown at home, and you can either drink its juice or just chew its fresh leaves. To get the juice, take around 100g of wheat grass and blend it with water. Strain it using a fine cloth and drink it immediately as its nutrition is damaged due to air. For the best effects, drink it in the morning with an empty stomach. If you do not like its taste, you can start with a small quantity and increase the amount gradually.
Avoid unhealthy practices
Detoxification should be a regular process, so avoid being overexcited. Some people, due to excitement, go overboard and follow some unhealthy rituals like fasting more than required. Over-fasting can deprive the body of the essential nutrients.
