We are being bombarded with over 30,000 chemicals in our environment and the over 8,000 chemicals in the household and personal products we may use. There are millions of toxins in our water, food and the air we breathe. These toxins overburden our bodies and the only way to rid ourselves of them is to DETOX.
Detoxing is one of the oldest medical modalities to heal the body. It is a period of time in which you allow your body to ged rid of extra toxins that have accumulated in the body over time.
Why it's Important to Detox?
The body is full of the toxins that we are forced to ingest by the air we breath, the food we eat, the water we drink and the chemicals in the products we use. If you have been eating a processed diet for years, toxins have accumulated in your body and are now most likely causing an imbalance.
We are exposed to chemicals just by breathing air. You might have accumulated toxins from pharmaceuticals, from plastics, from the water you drink, or simply from all of the environmental toxins, heavy metals and radiation that you are breathing.
The reason you should detox is to allow the body the time to rid the body of the toxins it has accumulated. You will feel so much better afterward. Detoxing will keep your body strong for the future. Every time you detox you reach a new level of internal cleanliness, like a car running on the cleanest fuels possible.
Signs it's Time to Detox
Symptoms of Detoxing
Going on a plant-based, whole grain, organic and non GMO diet is the best way to start detoxing, while cutting out caffeine, alcohol, gluten, sugar, and dairy. If you choose to eat eggs, meat, fish or chicken please make sure you know where it came from and eat the highest quality animal protein possible.
As you increase your intake of a plant-based diet and cut out certain foods, there are different ways that you will feel as the toxins begin to leave the body. When you eliminate certain foods, or even just cut back, your body eliminates toxins. Your body will try and expel them in any way it can.
It might be from your liver and small intestine via bowel movements, or through your skin's pores. While you are detoxing, your body may feel icky, like you are under the weather, since you have garbage traveling throughout your body, working hard to escape. It is similar to cleaning out a dirty house for the first time. As you are cleaning out the dust, it is hard to breathe, but as you continue to clean, you will will feel better and better.
Benefits of Detoxing:
No matter how healthy you are, there is no running away from the toxins that are in your life. Our bodies are not meant to be exposed to all of the toxins and it is necessary to detox the body to prevent disease.
