The Many Benefits of Detoxification


Whether we know it or not, whether we like it or not, we take in numerous toxins on a daily basis, according to Holistic Health News, and they can be in the form of household products, cigarette smoke, junk food, pesticides on vegetables, air pollution and a host of other unpleasant elements that we often have little control over.

If that’s not enough, our body also produces toxins and these result from our normal metabolic processes, stress and any illness that we are suffering. Our body needs to get rid of these harmful substances and, as usual, it saves the day with very capable detoxifying systems which involve the lungs, skin, kidneys, liver, lymph, blood, gallbladder and colon, reported Holistic Health News, noting we definitely have cause to wonder why we should bother with any kind of detox program when we have it all “in-house” already.

The detoxification process in the body, like everything, takes energy – that is energy which could be used elsewhere. If the detox system is working overtime, other parts of your body will suffer. Freeing up your detoxification system will mean that your body can focus on doing more important things like preventing chronic illnesses, repairing damaged tissues, improving health, etc. Actively detoxing our system is an easy way to help our body to do its own healing and protect itself against disease.

Think about it, those toxins are not just sitting there waiting for their time to be eliminated, they are causing disease. So often we hear of the carcinogenic (cancer-causing) elements around us and the dangerous heavy metals that we are ingesting. The faster these toxins are out of your system, the better. We are talking of preventing heart disease, cancer and degenerative diseases here.

There are a number of symptoms that indicate the need for detox; and a simple cleansing can help relieve: fatigue; digestive complaints such as IBS, flatulence and stomach pain; allergies; sleeping problems; constipation; nausea and more.

Don’t worry, this is normal and you simply need to bear with it, according to Holistic Health News, noting if you are severely overloaded with toxins, you may also reach a healing crisis detox which is when your body is trying to eliminate toxins faster than it is able to. The symptoms will become worse and the first thought is that the detox is actually making you sick. Hang in there! The worst will last only one to three days and then you’ll be through it.

Most detox programs are pretty simple and don’t involve much more than a change in diet, according to Holistic Health News, adding once you are through, you can enjoy: a better immune system; more efficient indigestion; improved metabolism; fewer allergic symptoms; more energy and improved natural detox process.
