Detoxification (Toxins Elimination)
In the context of the human body, detoxification or detoxing is the process of eliminating poisonous or waste substances (toxins) from the body; or to neutralize their adverse effects. An effective body detox removes waste, allowing the body to function better. This can lead to any number of improvements in health; an increase in energy levels; paying the way for healing of illness and disease.
WHAT IS A TOXIN?
A toxin is any substance that causes harm when it gets into our body. There are toxic substances all around us and they can be classified into three groups depending on their origin:disease.
WHY DO WE NEED TO DETOX?
Although our body can detoxify naturally, excessive exposure to toxins through poor diet or lifestyle, can lead to toxins accumulating faster than it can eliminate them.
Eventually the body becomes overloaded with toxins, the natural detox mechanisms become sluggish, the immune system and other bodily processes become less effective. This can manifest in any number of symptoms from lethargy and skin rash through to chronic illness or death in extreme cases of prolonged intoxication.
We detoxify to help reduce the level of toxins in our body to a manageable level. This allows the body to function correctly and helps to optimize bodily processes: an essential step towards living a disease-free, naturally healthy lifestyle.
