Detoxification is the name given to a complex process that happens naturally when we get rid of toxins. Toxins are substances that are harmful to our bodies. They may come from the body’s natural metabolic processes, the food we eat, the water we drink, the contents of the bowel and the air we breathe and what we put on our skin. Even our thoughts can encourage the formation of toxins in the form of acids in our bodies. You probably realize that we are what we eat, right? Now you know we are also what we think!
Any substance that builds up in the body causing harm to our cells is referred to as a toxin. Natural body chemicals (AKA: Acids) that result from everyday metabolism are normally broken down by the body and safely excreted. The body definitely knows what to do with reasonable amounts of these toxins. However, if these acids build up because of some system breakdown, or we ingest acid forming foods faster than they can be excreted and they start to accumulate instead of being eliminated. They become toxic to our cells. The ramifications can be tumors, boils, polyps; these can be deadly.
The kidneys, lymph, liver, intestines, lungs and skin are all channels which should be able to assist in the elimination of these acids. When our bodies are overloaded these vital organs cannot work as intended. When this happens, we are in need of a detoxification regimen in order to bring our bodies back into balance, so we can function optimally.
Detoxification is not a new healing fad. Techniques for cleansing the body have been used as the basis of improving health by different cultures for thousands of years. In Europe detoxification practices are offered by mainstream doctors in health spas and considered to be valid medical therapy.
Our body’s ability to deal with toxins depends on our inherited weaknesses, lifestyles, and environmental exposure. There is no doubt that toxins are injurious to our health and that our susceptibility to disease bears a direct relationship to our ability to detoxify.
Detox programs aim to remove the cause of disease before we get sick. But they can also be used to improve our health. No matter what health problem or disease you suffer from a properly devised detox program can help.
The best detox programs include specific foods and nutritional supplements known to support and enhance the detoxification pathways in the body. They would involve stimulating all the organs of detoxification to encourage the speedy and safe removal of toxins. After a cleanse it is best to keep to a healthy but realistic plan for life.
There is no doubt that a well-planned herbal based detox regimen can work wonders for the body.
