Detoxing your body is a hot topic of conversation these days, but most people do not need to do it. Our bodies have systems in place to automatically take care of toxins that enter our systems, and we have helpful bacteria in our bodies to assist in this process. However, some ways of improving these systems are easy to follow and available to most people. These include eliminating packaged and processed foods, sweating and sleeping more, and drinking more water.
- Detox works by clearing out most of the toxins in your body – and the systems within – that are not always able to be cleared by your body on its own.
- The body’s detox system can grow overloaded over time and function on a lower level of efficiency, which can lead to edema, physical fatigue, mental cloudiness, and a weak immune system.
- Some excellent ways to detox are going to a sauna, sleeping adequately, and eating fruits and vegetables, and drinking more water.
“Those with known diseases or conditions previously mentioned can probably benefit from a guided detox intervention with their healthcare providers.”
