Our body is detoxing -24 hours a day. We process and remove toxins and wastes from our body through the liver, kidneys, GI tract and other organs daily. These days, however, our bodies are exposed to many more chemicals than ever before, due to pesticides and chemicals in our food, air, and water, pharmaceutical medications, chemicals in cosmetics and toxins found in the home and yards. This huge excess of chemicals slows down the body’s ability to process and remove toxins, so they build up in the bloodstream and our tissues.
As toxins accumulate in our cells, they become inflamed, overworked and damaged. We begin to experience breakdowns in our health and develop signs of pre-mature aging. Symptoms like allergies, unexplained aches and pains, headaches, GI issues, weight gain, and skin rashes. We drag through our days lacking energy, feeling bloated, tired, and depressed. But we don’t have to!
When our body is in perfect balance, we experience vitality, energy and optimum wellbeing. One of the most important ways our bodies achieve this balance is through detoxification. When we detoxify our body’s liver must convert dangerous fat soluble toxins to neutral water-soluble compounds before they can be eliminated. It’s a complicated process that requires a great deal of nutrients and energy. This is why a lemon water cleanse will not help you detoxify.
We need to remove the toxic foods and chemicals from our diet as well as support of systems with nutrients that help our liver and GI tract do their jobs.
Doing a detoxification correctly with the right food plan and supportive supplements is a great way to reset your health, help you lose weight and allow you to feel vital and full of energy.
