Why Detox With Herbs?

Top 7 Natural Detox Herbs
Top 7 Natural Detox Herbs

Use natural detox herbs along with eating plant life to naturally support the health of organs in the body. This will supply the body with a natural and balanced concentration of vitamins, minerals, fatty acids, and phytonutrients that help to remove toxins from the body and strengthen the immune system. When we eat a lot of meat, dairy, and chemically processed foods, and take in toxins through the water we drink and the air we breath, we cause a toxic buildup in the body that compromises our immune system and we combat this buildup with natural detox herbs.

This unbalance of nutrients, toxins, and chemically altered foods cause havoc in our bodies which are geared to accept the natural balance of nutrients found in plant life. This balance strengthens the body and immune system and can compensate for the consumption of meat in small amounts, and toxins in our environment.

The problem is many of us eat very little plant life (vegetables, fruits, nuts, seeds, legumes, and alkaline grains) and eat too much meat, dairy, and processed foods which make it necessary to use detox herbs to get a deep lasting cleanse. Eating a plant based diet in itself is a natural detox because it limits the amount of toxins introduced into the body and it will detox you up until a point, overtime.

There are some natural herbs for detoxification that are not part of the normal the diet and these detox herbs are concentrated to specifically address detoxification of our organs. Even with a normal plant based diet, cleansing will only be so deep when dealing with a body that has accumulated a lot of toxins, and a natural herbal cleansing detox will greatly help the cause.

Natural Detox Herbs

Burdock Root – Detox Herb

Burdock root contains polyacetylene, an organic compound believed to give burdock root its antibacterial and antifungal properties. Burdock root is a detox herb used to support and clean the liver and gall bladder, and to treat a variety skin diseases such as abscesses, acne, carbuncles, psoriasis and eczema, through increasing circulation to the skin where the compounds in the root help to detoxify the epidermal tissues.

Burdock root’s inulin compound supports probiotic growth in the colon, and studies have confirmed that burdock root is a natural herbal cleanse detox. In studies, animals exposed to toxic chemicals and treated with burdock root tea showed it protected against cellular damage and abnormal growths, and reduced liver damage from toxic chemicals.



Sarsaparilla is a detox herb and has anti-inflammatory properties to treat the liver, diaphoretic properties and binds with toxins which are removed from the body through sweating, and is used to to treat skin conditions such abscesses, acne, boils, and psoriasis. Sarsaparilla also contains saponins which act as a diurectic and it is used to promote healthy kidney functioning by stimulating detoxification through forced urination.


Dandelion root increases bile production to break down fats and remove cholesterol from the body. Studies support that dandelion root extract fights liver fibrosis by inactivating hepatic stellate cells, the the major cell type involved in liver fibrosis, and by supporting liver health by enhancing hepatic (liver) regenerative capabilities.

Mullein And Bromelain & Papain

I used these detox herbs together to clean my small intestine. Bromelain & Papain are vegetable digestive enzymes from pineapple and papaya. I used these herbs to dissolve proteins stuck in the mucoid layer lining my small intestine’s wall. I used mullein to then remove the mucoid lining to allow for better transport of nutrients from the small intestine into the bloodstream.

Elderberry is a detox herb because it removes mucus in the body. Excess mucus and a high acidic pH level support disease in the body. Traditionally, elderberries have been used to fight the flu and colds and now scientific research has indicated that its antiviral and antioxidants properties are the reason for its effectiveness. Research has shown that elderberry was effective against flu infections like H1N1 by binding to the virus and blocking it from entering host cells.

Cilantro is a detox herb that helps the body rid itself of dangerous toxic metals that accumulate in organ tissues.

Parasite Detox Herbs

Black Walnut & Wormwood

Black Walnut & Wormwood are detox herbs but they are not herbal detoxifiers that remove toxins from the body as they other detox herbs do. They are detox herbs because they kill parasites that create toxins in the body.

Vitamin And Mineral Support

Bladderwrack & Irish Moss

Bladderwrack & Irish Moss are herbs made of seaweed that contain 92 of the 102 minerals of which the body is made, and they help maximize the effectiveness of the detox herbs. Using these 7 natural detox herbs along with eating a plant based diet will be sure to kick you into high gear.

  • Robert Hicks says:

    I am 20 years old and I want to begin a natural life diet mind, body and Spirit so if I could get a bit of Wisdom and Guidance from you guys I’m opened arms!!!! Peace and Love!

    • Aqiyl says:

      Hi Robert,
      There is so much to cover and it depends on where you want to start. You may wan to start by downloading the free e-book on the site. You can also look through the menu for subjects that interest you. Peace and blessings be with you.

  • Great info highlighted Aqiyl. Here at MyDetoxDiet we encourage the use of juice and soups to cleanse the body of harmful toxins, but it’s great to see a post which outlines all the beneficial ingredients that can be included for a great diet.

  • Kristine says:

    Lol ok it’s telling me they are add on items.can u tell me what other brands please

  • Kristine says:

    Hi sorry to bug u again but i was only able to order the burdock root from Amazon. It’s not letting me or the other 2 what should i do

    • Aqiyl says:

      No worries Kristine you are not bugging me. What message did you get for why it won’t let you order the other 2? Try to order them again, and if you are not successful search for for the other two in amazon from another seller or another brand.

  • Kristine says:

    Hi when u take these supplements should u take them all together or one at a time

    • Aqiyl says:

      I take them all together, following the directions on the bottle. It is very very important to drink a gallon of water a day when taking the diuretic herbs. VERY VERY important.

  • Kristine says:

    And i bought the tea form is this ok or is the pill better

  • Kristine says:

    Im weaning myself off them is it still bad

  • Aqiyl says:

    I would say not to use them while taking suboxones. The herbs are diuretics which means you have to drink a lot of water, which can quickly remove the suboxones from you system.

  • Kristine says:

    Hi thanks for taking the time to educate us’ve helped me alot and my next question is how should u use the herbs all together or one at a time.and are any of those dangerous if ur on down to a half strip a day.I’ve asked everyone pharmacies whole food co ops and nobody knows please help me

    • Aqiyl says:

      I forgot to say you are welcome Kristine. I am glad to have been able to help. It is our duty in life to serve others.
