Detoxification has been practiced for centuries by various cultures. The most familiar and perhaps the oldest is Chinese medicine systems and acupuncture. Detoxing cleans your body from the inside out. By removing toxins and subsequently providing your body with healthy nutrients, detoxing can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimal health.
Detoxification technically means cleaning the blood. Your liver is responsible for removing toxins from your body and then filters them through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph system, and skin so they can be eliminated. If your body becomes compromised through illness, parasites, or a physiological condition, then toxins can not be properly processed causing a build up in your cells.There are many methods that can be used to detox your body. Depending on your body's individual needs, certain methods and recipes are more effective than others. Some of the most common ways are:
At this point, you may feel sluggish or tired for no particular reason. You may find it difficult to lose weight. You can't get rid of that cold or the flu-like symptoms keep coming back. Even skin or digestive problems may indicate a toxin overload. Whatever the symptom, detoxifying your body will help.
Ideally a complete detoxification program is needed which will both eliminate or decrease the amount of toxins taken in and increases the amount of toxins eliminated from your body.
