Feeling sluggish? Having unexplained fatigue, skin problems, or digestive problems? Trouble losing weight? These could be signs you need to do an internal body detox.
There are many environmental factors that a person may intake intentional and/or unintentional orally or topically that could cause bad toxins to build up in the body. Eating out at restaurants, fast food, chemicals in the air, pharmaceutical or over the counter drugs or remedies, showering or swimming in contaminated waters. The list is endless. Because the consumer may not have the means or knowledge to combat this list, detoxification may be a solution.
Detoxification is a way to clean and nourish the body from the inside out. Most systems work by removing and disposing of toxins that build up in the body over time or due to a specific cause. Manufacturers recommend to cleanse and detoxify the body at least once a year. Disposing of those unnatural poisons and contaminants during a detoxification protocol may help protect the user from disease and allow better whole body maintenance and optimum health.
Doing a detox can also promote the body’s natural cleaning process by stimulating the liver to push toxins from the body, encourage elimination through the intestines, kidneys and skin, and improve circulation of blood. This will help improve natural energy, vitality, and health.
Whether the goal is to increase optimal health, lose a few pounds or clear out undesirable toxins a healthy liver is needed to make this all happen. The liver is the main organ in the body that is a detoxifier and digester. Symptoms such as digestion issues (gas, heartburn, bloating, etc.), weight gain, fatigue, chemical sensitivities or lack of absorption, etc. may be indicators that it is time for a liver detox.
To begin a liver detox the user may want to reduce exposure to processed foods and chemicals, increase water intake and get more rest. There are several different liver detoxifiers and programs on the market. The consumer can also chose to consume liver-supportive herbs and foods. These herbs and/or foods may help flush out toxins and support the body’s natural detox pathways. After a liver detox is completed the participant will usually feel an extra boost of energy and overall health. Be proactive, if you are on any kinds of medications or under a doctor’s care, you should always check with your medical practitioner before starting any supplements or detox protocols.
Kidneys are one of the most essential organs in the body. Kidneys aid in processing everything a person consumes and/or puts into the body (food, alcohol, medications, etc.). Since the kidneys are so important in keeping the body healthy, it is a good idea to revitalize them by giving them a rest every once in a while. Doing a kidney detox will help prevent kidney infection, kidney stone formation and boost immunity by clearing out toxins.
There are some kidney-supportive herbs/vitamins and foods on the over the counter market. Herbs and vitamins like ginger, red clover, dandelion root, vitamin B2/B6, and magnesium or foods like pumpkin seeds, lemon juice, and watermelon are just some products that can aid in kidney detox.
Doing a kidney detox can give the body the balance it needs and help the user feel more rejuvenated and energized in daily life.
