THE POWER OF DETOXING
/de•tox•ing/: verb, abstaining from or ridding the body of toxic or unhealthy substances.
/de•tox•i•fi•ca•tion/: noun, the process which our bodies metabolize toxins, and transform substances into bodily waste.
Prolonged clogging of any pathway will lead to inflammation that will eventually evolve into a bigger problem. When we habitually expose ourselves to these pollutants and toxins, we cause our body to go into overdrive to breakdown the waste. Consequently, triggering potential symptoms of fatigue, sluggishness, inflammation, as well as hormonal imbalances that bring on skin conditions. What are you doing to keep that from happening? Our organs are working daily to purify toxins from various areas of our body (i.e. skin, stomach, colon, kidneys, etc.) which are affected by our environment, what we eat, and drink. So, how do you lessen your chances of these outcomes? Detoxing! The practice of detoxing is essential and the first step to prevention.
Detoxing has multiple benefits, such as:
Clearing acne and improving other skin conditions
Cleansing and detoxifying the colon
Boosting immune response
Cleansing and building the blood
Flushing out the liver and kidneys
Improving gallbladder function
Removal of heavy metals
Ridding the body of parasites
Nourishing and strengthening detoxification pathways
