A "Detox" Explained

Pollutants you are exposed to on a daily basis can affect your health.

Our body metabolizes caffeine, alcohol, and medications, on top of chemicals that we are exposed to such as BPA, preservatives and pesticides on many foods, heavy metals and even your drinking water contains chlorine. This metabolism occurs through a process called “detoxification”, where the body makes these pollutants more easily excreted. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating toxins through the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs and skin.  Unfortunately in this day and age, with the pollution found in our air, food, and water, our bodies can have a hard time keeping up. 

The truth is we live in a world filled with more pollution than ever, and even at low levels, these pollutants can affect your health. These toxicants can act in an unfortunate variety of ways in the body including disrupting hormones, brain function, and immune system.  Specific toxins have even been linked to endometriosis, ADHD, depression, insomnia, high blood pressure, asthma, infertility, Parkinson’s disease and breast cancer.

The body is capable of eliminating these toxins, however in many of these diseases, the elimination organs become so overwhelmed that the toxins become bottle-necked, and that’s when symptoms start.

A detoxification program supports the body so that these pollutants can be effectively eliminated. Generally speaking, almost anyone can benefit from a detox. Detoxification is an effective way to jump-start your body’s own healing and make you feel better.
