Feeling tired, fatigued, not in sync and sluggish most of time? Consider cleaning up your body and especially your colon from inside, think of detoxification as an option. Practiced for hundreds of years now, numerous by cultures around the world — including Ayurvedic and Chinese medicine systems — detoxification is about resting, cleaning and nourishing the body from the inside and out; by removing and eliminating toxins, then nourishing your body with healthy nutrients, detoxifying can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health.
Basically, detoxification means cleaning the blood. This is done by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination or flushing out from your system. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. However, when this system is compromised, impurities are not properly filtered and every cell in the body is affected.
Detoxification can help the body to revive its filtration mechanism by –
- Resting the organs through fasting;
- Stimulating the liverto drive toxins from the body;
- Promoting elimination through the intestines, kidneys and skin;
- Improving the blood circulation; and
- Refueling the body with healthy nutrients.
When and who needs detoxification?
First, lighten up your toxin load by eliminating alcohol, coffee, cigarettes, refined sugars and saturated fats, all of which act as toxins in the body and are obstacles to your healing process. Also, minimize use of chemical products like your household cleaners and personal health care products (cleansers, shampoos, deodorants and toothpastes), and substitute them with suitable alternatives.
Another deterrent to good health is stress, which triggers your body to release stress hormones into your system. While these hormones can provide the “adrenaline rush” to win a race or meet a deadline, in large amounts they create toxins and slow down detoxification enzymes in the liver; yoga and meditation are simple and effective ways to relieve stress.
