In order to understand how to detoxify, let’s begin by talking about toxicity. Toxicity is the
degree to which a substance, either a toxin or poison, can cause harm. Here are two medical distinctions of toxicity:
The body’s natural process for detoxification is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymphatic system, and skin. Because We are continually bombarded with various chemical and environmental toxins which can slow down the body’s elimination process.
It is very important to note that one of the main causes of the majority of diseases is toxicity. Therefore, it is super important to cleanse or detox at least two times a year (some people need to do it 4 times per year - it just depends on your lifestyle and how much you are exposed to environmental toxins like stress and non-organic food). And if you already suffer from a chronic illness, then you must start immediately a detox program.
Some of the common symptoms of toxicity include, but are not limited to:
Anyone who experiences one or more of the above regularly can benefit from even a short detox to help alleviate stress on the body.
Detoxification is about resting, cleansing, and nourishing the body from the inside out. Many believe detoxing can help prevent disease by removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients.
You can also detox your body with herbs like the detox supplement I have designed. I know many of you love this product because this formula provides a comprehensive and well-balanced program for deep internal cleansing. It works in harmony with your body’s natural detoxification process to help you feel lighter, brighter, and more energized.
