Even if you do not do drugs or take banned substances before entering a race or a competition, there is a slim chance toxins have built up in your body enough to suggest you have. No scientist, panel of judges, or public will believe the guy who pleads “innocent” no matter how good his reputation has been for years and years.
In fact, a positive test could cast a shadow over his entire career up to this point. Of course, the following advice is also useful to individuals who knowingly consume PEDs, before a fight for example.
How to Pass a Drug Test
The best way to pass these tests is still to not take Performance Enhancing Drugs and banned items in the first place. Even though there is a chance of testing positive in spite of that, there are many common sense reasons to avoid them.
They are banned because of the damage they can do to a person’s body. That goes for the heart, liver, and brain; kind of important organs. PEDs also give an unfair advantage to competitors in the short term before they lead to hormonal imbalances and heart failure.
Pass the test by taking a substance touted for its ability to make you a better fighter, runner, or basketball player, but find out first what sort of test you will undergo. There are blood, urine, saliva, and hair tests.
Drugs remain in a person’s hair for a long time so unless you plan on shaving that off, this is one method of drug testing which is likely to catch you out. Saliva is the easiest thing to change with mouth rinse products just for such a purpose. Urine can also be flushed of traces of drugs by taking certain products. Even blood can be cleansed.
But the products used to pass a drug test are not real foods. They are sold by shops that sell marijuana and vaporizers, and a pro athlete with a high profile does not want to be seen entering places like those. Besides, they aren’t in the average person’s cupboard. A better way to get past a screen is to choose detoxifying food that’s good for you anyway.
Detoxify with Food
There is always the liquid diet which promotes excessive urination, but you don’t want to do that if quick detoxification is the goal. Calories are important for energy in this equation which will also involve exercise to induce sweating without fainting.
Stay away from foods which slow down your digestive system, particularly unhealthy foods you already think of as “junk.” They include fast food, too much meat, and rich desserts.
Choose meals which give you the energy to get up and go for a walk, swim, or a run. If you plan to be active right away these can be carbs like grains and potatoes. Protein is good if it is lean or plant-based like nuts, seeds, and soy.
The best foods will keep your bowels moving ultimately so you excrete toxins, all of them. This same process enables the body to get rid of environmental poisons found in water, the air we breathe, and released from household and commercial carpets.
Of course this is not going to be something that creates a result overnight, but can help when used in accordance with other methods for passing a test, though it all depends on what type of testing will be performed, whether a urine test, or hair follicle.
