The need to detox
In today’s fast-paced, high-tech world we are often so busy doing stuff that we forget to stop, take a look at our surroundings and smell the flowers. Most of us have turned our daily busy schedules and routines into an unhealthy art form. Being busy becomes the defining factor of our lives, and that is when it happens – headaches become more frequent, indigestion is an every day affair, our skin becomes irritable and poor, and the feelings of being tired and worn out just can’t be shaken.
So many of the dietary and lifestyle choices we make these days have a negative effect on our bodies. Think about it. We change the oil and filters in our cars, we wash the dishes, we scrub the bathroom sink, we sweep and mop the floor. We shower, scrub between our toes and brush our teeth, but how often do we cleanse ourselves from the inside.
Our bodies tend to become a storage site for chemicals as we are consistently exposed to toxins in our environment. The accumulation of all of these toxins can take its toll on our overall health and vitality, and eventually lead to an unwanted arsenal of problems. Are the warning signs there? Do you feel lethargic, are you suffering from migraines, poor concentration, unexplainable weight gain, allergies or skin rashes? If the answer to any of these questions is yes, then perhaps it is time to clean your body from within.
What is detox?
Detox, short for detoxification, is our body’s natural, ongoing process of neutralizing and ridding itself of toxins. Toxins essentially are anything that can potentially harm or damage our body tissue, including chemicals and human-made toxins found in our environment, the food we eat and the water we drink.
Detox is the body’s process of purifying itself from the toxins and chemicals that have damaging effects on our cell functions and structures. When you choose to start a detox, your body will begin to discharge all of the negative excesses it has carried for years, including environmental and dietary toxins.
Modern research has shown us that going on a detox can improve the function of literally every single system in our body. The major organs effected during detoxification include the liver, kidneys, colon, lungs, skin, lymphatic vessels and nodes.
Benefits of detoxing the body
If you choose to go on a detox, your body will reap the benefits. Here are some of the ways that a detox restarts your internal engine:
- Boosts your energy – during a detox, you stop the influx of sugar, caffeine, trans fat and saturated fat into your body and replace them with natural, wholesome foods such as fruits and vegetables. By flushing the toxins out, you will start to feel more energetic and upbeat, and by eating more fruits and vegetables you get a natural energy boost.
- Rids the body of excess waste – detoxing allows your body to get rid of any and all of the excess waste it’s been storing. The liver, kidneys and colon purge themselves and the body becomes re-stimulated.
- Helps with weight loss – a detox is an encouraging factor in the way to look at your current eating habits and change them to long-term healthy eating habits. Replacing bad foods with good foods allows for more energy, and more energy allows the chance to lead a more active life.
- Builds a stronger immune system – detoxing strengthens your immune system. As your body’s major organs purge themselves, they become clean and free to function as they should and your body will begin to absorb nutrients better.
Additional benefits of detoxing the body include improved skin, better breath and clearer thinking. Detoxing promotes healthy changes, and encourages you to live a healthier life. After a detox, you will have an improved sense of well-being. Detoxes are not easy, however with the right attitude and dedication, the positive changes will carry over and stay strong long after your detox is complete.
