Understanding Detoxification

By: | Tags: | Comments: 0 | June 12th, 2018

Our bodies naturally do it every day. Detoxification is a normal body process of eliminating or neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph, and skin. In fact, internal detoxification is one of our body’s most basic automatic functions. Just as our hearts beat nonstop and our lungs breathe continuously, our metabolic process continuously disposes of accumulated toxic matter. In our world today, body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely overloaded; thus many unwanted substances stay in our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous material by setting it aside and surrounding it with mucous or fat so it won’t cause imbalance or trigger an immune reaction. (Your body stores foreign substances in its fatty deposits – a significant reason to keep your diet and body fat low.)
Ideally, we should live in a pollution-free environment, eat untainted foods, and drink pure water. Since humans are born with a “self-cleaning” system, we know this has probably never been possible. Today, it isn’t even practical. So the next best thing is to keep pollutants to a minimum and to periodically get rid of them through a detoxification program.
Detoxification through special cleansing diets may be the missing link to disease prevention, especially for immune-compromised diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes, and fatigue syndromes like candia albicans. Our chemicalized-food diet with too much animal protein, too much fat, too much caffeine and too much alcohol radically alters our internal ecosystems. Even if your diet is good, a cleanse can restore body vitality against environmental toxins that pave the way for disease-bearing bacteria, viruses, and parasites.
A detox program aims to remove the cause of disease before it makes us ill. It’s a time-honored way to keep immune response high, elimination regular, circulation sound, and stress under control, so your body can handle the toxicity it encounters. In the past, detoxification was used either clinically for recovering alcoholics and drug addicts, or individually as a once-a-year mild “spring cleaning” for general health maintenance. Today, A regular detox program two or three times a year makes a big difference not only for health but for the quality of our lives.
There is sometimes confusion about these terms because cleansing rituals are so ancient. In cultures like Native American, cleansing was regarded first as a religious practice, purifying the body as a living temple to God. In others, such as Chinese medicine, cleansing was part of preventative health care. Today, and in this series of articles on detoxification, the terms are used interchangeably.
