Flush Your System to Pass a Drug Test

drug-test-cupIf you are facing a drug test in your immediate future and you know you have used drugs recently, there is a good chance that you will test positive. Despite the many claims to the contrary, there is little that you can do to beat a drug test that is only a few days away. Needless to say getting rid of all traces of drugs in your system overnight is next to impossible.

Does this mean that you are all out of options? Not necessarily. The single most important thing you can do to avoid a “positive” result is by stopping the use of drugs immediately. Don’t wait any longer than you have to. As soon as you know you will be taking a test in the near future, you should stop taking any illegal substances right then and there. This will greatly increase the chances of the drugs leaving your body in time for the test.

That being said, you should be aware that it may take a long time for your system to clear up. The drug that stay in the body for the longest, marijuana, can take as long as 30 to 45 days to clear. If you have used marijuana within this time period prior to taking a drug test, you will likely come out positive.

So what does work for clearing toxins out of the body and passing a drug test? Exercise and water therapy may both be beneficial, but perhaps not in the way that you think. The key to both these methods is to adopt them into your daily habits as early as possible, even before you have to take a drug test.

In the case of water therapy, it would be best to simply adopt the practice of drinking plenty of water every day. In addition to constantly flushing your system of toxins, this will also help enhance your metabolism. It would be less effective to start drinking plenty of water only a few days before the test, as this will only result in diluted urine that will arouse suspicion.

Some people think that exercising can effectively clear toxins from the body. Although not entirely useless, exercise will not have an immediate effect in terms of reducing levels of toxin, since it can take several weeks or months before you can lose enough fat to make a difference. Since the toxins are stored mostly in the fat cells, there is simply no quick and easy way to get them out of your system.

That being said, exercise can be beneficial in the long-term. By maintaining low levels of body fat, you can shorten the time period that drugs remain in your body. Exercise will also speed up your metabolism, and this may further increase the rate of toxin elimination. Even so, exercise is by no means a quick-fix, and you can’t expect to use drugs heavily in the days leading up to the test and simply work it all out of your system!
