While many think of detoxing as a modern, fashionable phenomenon, the act of fasting, or eliminating toxins through the skin, is a concept held true for millennia.
Testimonies to the benefits of fasting and detoxification have been recorded throughout history; from the priests of Ancient Egypt to the philosophers of Ancient Greece; to Hippocrates, the father of modern medicine circa 400 BC; right up to eminent modern day leaders in the field of detoxification, such as Bernard Jensen and Anne Wigmore.
Ayurveda is one of the oldest healing method from India. Obvious in its system, detoxification is a key component. This reminds us that toxins have been a known problem from the very beginning of the healing history.
