We are exposed to hundreds of harmful chemicals on a daily basis. Our bodies are like sponges and absorb free radicals and other harmful toxins from the air, things we touch, in the food we eat and through the skin when using personal care products.
What is a Detox
Detoxing is simply the process of removing toxins from your body.
The liver, skin, intestines, kidneys, lungs and lymphatic system perform our body’s natural detoxing functions. In this day and age though, we can overload our organs with bad food and massive amounts of chemicals, and they can’t keep up.
As toxins accumulate over time, they can cause damage to your body, which make you more susceptible to certain diseases and drastically reduce your energy levels.
There are a number of structured Detox’s on the market today, but we can also help our organs do their job through dietary changes, essential oils, herbs, supplements, and other gentle detox methods.
Treat your body like a temple, not a woodshed. The mind and body work together. Your body needs to be a good support system for the mind and spirit.
The Benefits Of Detoxing
Regardless of the detoxification method you choose, there are a number of benefits that you can expect from detoxing.
Benefit 1 – Better Mood
Once inside the body, toxins stress the body’s organs and tissues which can cause you to feel irritable, moody or even depressed. Detoxing rejuvenates and refreshes the affected body organs and tissues. This has a huge impact on your mood as you’ll start feeling more relaxed, happier, and revitalized.
Benefit 2 – Enhanced Digestive Health
A build-up of toxic waste in the body affects the functioning capacity of your digestive system. Additionally, constantly consuming processed foods strains your digestive system and causes it to become inefficient at removing waste materials from the body. By detoxing, you give your digestive system a much-needed rest which allows it to function more efficiently, absorb health boosting nutrients more effectively and remove waste materials at a faster rate.
Benefit 3 – Healthier Skin
Aside from being the largest organ in your body, the skin is also an excretory organ that eliminates toxins from your body through sweat. When the body has too many internal toxins, the skin becomes clogged up and is unable to function properly. This results in a variety of skin conditions such as dryness, redness, itchiness and skin irritations. Detoxing releases this buildup of toxins and restores the healthy glow to your skin.
Benefit 4 – Improved Weight Loss
Since a detox enhances your digestive health, your metabolism will receive an instant boost and this, in turn, helps you lose weight. Additionally, by removing processed foods from your diet, you naturally consume fewer empty calories. Plus, many of the healthy habits you pick up during your detox will stay with you long after the detox program is complete which will help keep the weight off.
Benefit 5 – Increased Energy Levels
During a detox, you’ll be eliminating the toxins that sap your energy levels and cause you to feel fatigued. You’ll also be adding concentrated nutrients from natural sources to your body that boost your energy. This combination gives you an instant, natural and sustainable lift to your level of energy.
Benefit 6 – Reduced Risk of Chronic Disease
The toxins that accumulate in your body can be quite dangerous and can increase your chances of acquiring a variety of chronic diseases including cancer, heart disease and high blood pressure. Once these toxins are removed, your risk of developing these chronic diseases drastically reduces.
