In today's world, we can be almost certain that our bodies are harboring harmful toxins. We consume acid forming coffee and eat fast food, among other things, on a regular basis. Eliminating these toxins is vitally important which is why a complete body detox is necessary.

Many of us have heard or even completed a colon cleanse and indeed this is great as the colon is where the body eliminates these toxins - the final stop, so to speak. However, our liver and kidneys also need cleansing as they are the filters of the body and often get clogged with our excess waste.

This is why we should look at the body as a whole and decide the best way to get rid of these harmful products. In fact, the more toxins are eliminated, the less these toxins can build up and accumulate in your body and the less clogged important organs become. This should be at the top of your 'to do' list. With a few additions to your daily food intake and a bit of an abstinence from others, a complete body detox is simple and surprisingly inexpensive.

The following are ways to make sure your body has every help to detox:

• Eat fresh fruit daily (organic is best)

In the morning is best but fruit anytime during the day is great. If you feel hungry between meals have some fruit. It's not good to eat fresh fruit directly after a meal, but beforehand is fine. You can also enjoy fresh fruit juice (no additives or sugar) or make a smoothie. Fruit flushes out those pesky toxins like nothing else!

• Incorporate flaxseed or psyllium husks into your routine every day

Soak either one in water before you go to bed. In the morning, preferably on an empty stomach, drink it down. You can add a bit of natural (no fruit, sugar or additives) yoghurt so it tastes better. This ensures healthy bowel movements and you should be having those twice a day!

• Drink lots of good quality water every day

Water also flushes out toxins from your body and it's particularly important if you are taking flaxseed or psyllium husks.

• Daily fresh vegetables

Eat them raw, steamed or sautéed but eat them! You can juice them too.

• Eat a fresh salad every day

Here again this ensures you get a quotient of raw 'veggies'. Don't soak it all in dressing or add croutons. Make a simple dressing with a good vinegar or lemon juice and good quality oil, add salt and pepper, maybe a teaspoon of a good mustard and that's all you need on your daily salad.

• Go easy on milk and dairy products

They tend to be mucus forming in your body. Fermented is OK (like yoghurt) but make sure they are all natural with no additives.

• Substitute coffee with herbal tea

This is also a great way to help your detox process. If you can't find a herbal tea to your liking - though there are hundreds out there, try rooibos as this has a similar taste to black tea. Otherwise try green tea.

Using these seven simple steps is a great way to start a complete body detox. It's not difficult and is surprisingly inexpensive. Even if you do this for a week or two, you will notice the difference.
