“Detox walk” key to all-day en­ergy

First For Women - - Health -

Tak­ing two brisk 8-minute walks a day can op­ti­mize the body’s detox pro­cesses to boost en­ergy lev­els in just 48 hours—plus flush away up to

five pounds of trapped flu­ids. Aus­trian re­searchers re­port that the strat­egy works by in­creas­ing slug­gish cir­cu­la­tion and speed­ing the flow of lym­phatic fluid to un­clog the buildup of tox­ins and other metabolic wastes that hin­der brain and body func­tion. How to get the best re­sults: “Swing your arms as you move,” ad­vises Dale Bre­desen, M.D., a pro­fes­sor of neu­rol­ogy at UCLA and coau­thor of The End of Alzheimer’s. “This en­cour­ages the move­ment of tox­ins to the liver, where they can be con­verted into eas­ily ex­creted com­pounds.”
