Many individuals are unclear about the meaning and use of detoxification. The dictionary generally defines detoxification in two main ways:
- The process of removing toxic substances or qualities.
- Medical treatment of an alcoholic or drug addict involving abstention from drink or drugs until the bloodstream is free of toxins.
The human body is brilliantly designed, and equipped with numerous ways of removing toxins that we encounter through:
food emotions environmental exposure genetic predisposition
drugs, illegal and prescription
There are many factors that influence your ability to detoxify well, as well as avoiding anxiety and depression . Genetics play a big role, with most of the abilities being seen in the liver, kidneys, gut and lungs. If you were not so ‘gifted’, you may not be able to handle all of the toxins presented to your body. This can result in nutrient depletion and imbalance, and can eventually turn into serious illness(like cancer, heart disease and so many other conditions).
There are many, many ways to assist the body in its’ detoxification work. This may be through food, cleansing techniques(like sauna, clay, supplements and much more). Think of it like bring the body back into alignment, or getting new spark plugs or oil, so that the body does it’s own work better.
This is the focus of safe and effective detoxification.
Benefits of bio-detoxification:
