    Default foods/drinks to help detox?

    I was wondering if there are any foods or drinks besides water that will help flush and cleanse your body of the opiates? Thanks in advance.

    Trey,

    Drink Gatorade. It's not that this fluid helps flush/cleanse one's body of opiates better than water, it's that it helps replenish one's body with lots of good stuff our bodies desperately need.

    Green Tea is a very good way to detox one's body during detox it will really help flush the system . Just make sure that you get the decaf kind and make sure that you are replenshing as well. When in detox you tend to have alot of diahreah and the green tea will add to that so I would say that you should have 3 green tea's a day and the rest gatorade and water . Hope that helped .

    trey-

    welcome, milk thistle is a supplement that helps cleanse the liver. I personally like Vitamin Water over gradorade, it has less sugar in it, look for the flavor Revive.

    Also a good multi-vitamin is a must as well. (If your stomach can't handle an adult horse pill, try the children's chewables.)

    Eating a healthy organic diet with lots of fruits & veggis is good, avoid sugars and processed foods, they will just drain your body of nutrients which you don't need while you are going through detox. And take it moment by moment, it does get easier.

    take care

    or if you don't like the vitamin water (they are all flavored right?) there is Smartwater it has electrolytes like gatorade but, no sugar and others and is just plain water- I love it, where I live it is hard to find there's only one store local that has it but, I stock up!

    I would say in very early recovery drink just about anything you can keep down.
    I'd try and stay away from carbonated drinks as much as possible. Watch out for anything laden with caffeine, too.

    At first, all I'd drink was lemonade. Not the healthiest, I know. Yet my body was grateful for some fluids.
    Now, I am drinking a lot more water. Around 1-2 litres a day. It started off a lot less.

    when the fear of staying the same is greater
    than the fear of change
    ...we change

    One-

    Lemonade is actually not as bad as you think, it's one of my few "approved" drinks on my cancer diet. It does help balance out things.

    In terms of Smart water that is the only bottled water I do drink we have it everywhere, it's made by the same company as Vitamin Water (which ironically was founded by 50-cent, the rapper.) My friend works at Whole Foods and gets me 2 cases a week of the 2 liter bottles, if they weren't so heavy I would totally offer to ship you some but it would probably cost a fortune. (We have enough problems getting them up my stairs & into my apt.)

    Another thing to try is tea with NO caffine in it. I personally like Passion by tazo, Starbucks carries it, and I have found it at a few differnt places. Green teas are good too. A hot cup of tea will help with the chills.

    Good luck
