Brits in Crete passes along some sound advice on how you can detox your body when in Greece or Cyprus. The remedy is to simply eat the right foods when staying there, without the need for dietary supervision. You do not need fancy or expensive solutions, just follow the Cretan Diet (or other local variations of the Mediterranean diet). Detoxing means flushing the body of waste that has built up over time. Such waste is found all around the body in key working organs, even in the skin but above all in the blood flowing through the veins and arteries. Your body and spirit needs help, naturally. So why don't you permit specific foods with toxic busting compounds and other goodies do their work and let your body self repair. You just enjoy the eating and drinking!
Below is not an exhaustive list of recommended detoxifying foods yet it is a good place to start. Some of the items you take raw in salads, others need some simple cooking, others you can squeeze to make a drink. You do not have to go crazy and over indulge, just on the occasions when you see them available, then include them in your food/drink intake.
We will add to the list shortly several other great detoxifier foods. These include artichokes, olives, olive oil, and tomatoes. They deserve more coverage in their own right as an integral part of the Cretan way of eating.
