Part 1: What Is Body Detoxification?
When we first hear about body detoxification, we may conjure up images in our minds that are unpleasant. Once we get to understand about body detoxification and how it works, however, we will have a different opinion.
Body detoxification concentrates on cleaning or flushing out toxins or waste from our digestive system and give the organs in our digestive system a boost. It works to make sure that our digestive system is healthy.
In order to have a healthy body, we must have a healthy digestive system. If our digestive system is not healthy, then our whole body suffers.
What is the digestive system?
The digestive system is comprised of organs such as the liver, pancreas, kidneys and intestines. Foods usually enter the digestive system through the stomach and are then passed for processing through the digestive tract.
Some food and drinks that we take in makes the kidneys and pancreas work overtime in processing them. All of the organs in the digestive system have a job to do in order to keep our body running healthy. Once food and drink is processed in the system, it is then eliminated by way of waste. Liquids are eliminated by urine and solid waste is eliminated through the intestines as feces.
These organs also take a beating when it comes to getting rid of toxins as well as some foods that can be difficult for these organs to process. Simple carbohydrates, for example, are very hard on the kidneys and pancreas as well as the liver as they tend to pass through quickly and make these organs work overtime.
How else can toxins get into our body?
Toxins in the air that we breathe enter the system through the circulatory system that brings blood to and from the organs. When you smoke, for example, the smoke is absorbed into your bloodstream and carried throughout your body. This negatively affects the digestive system. Even second hand smoke will take its toll.
Our skin is our biggest organ and when we take a bath or shower using chemicals as are featured in shampoo and soap, we are absorbing toxins into our skin. When we breathe in air, we take the toxins into our lungs. It is impossible to live our life toxin free, although a good many people try.
We are going to eventually go out and pick up germs that are in the air. It is inevitable that we will come into contact with toxins unless we decide to live our life in a plastic bubble.
Body detoxification clears the body of all of the toxins and foods that sit in the digestive system. Not only is it a good way to get the poisons out of your body, but it also works well when it comes to losing weight. Most people find that they can take off quite a few pounds simply by using body detoxification.
Who Needs Body Detoxification?
As stated earlier, just about anyone can do body detoxification. How often you need body detoxification depends on your lifestyle and the intent that you have for the body detoxification. If you want to lose weight, but have a lifestyle that involves bad habits, such as smoking, you may want to detoxify more often. If you are just trying to maintain a good digestive health, you can detoxify less often. Nevertheless, regardless of how often you decide to embark on this journey to stay healthy, everyone needs body detoxification once in a while.
Amongst some of the reasons to detoxify your body includes:
- For Weight Loss
Many people who are looking for a way to lose weight opt for body detoxification as it is one of the healthiest ways to lose weight. As we tend to store waste in our intestines, we may end up feeling bloated and retaining weight. Body detoxification eliminates the waste from our body and makes us feel lighter instantly. However, that being said, body detoxification is not a laxative. It is simply a natural way to eliminate waste from our system that leads to weight loss.
- To Remove or Flush-Out Toxins
This will work towards keeping our body clean and free from poisons that are in what we consume as well as what we breathe. If you smoke, drink or do not always eat a healthy diet, you can use body detoxification as a way to stay healthier and rid your body of toxins. While body detoxification should not be a substitute for practicing good health, it can help alleviate the problems that come with taking in toxins.
- Keeping The Digestive System Healthy
Remember, our digestive system and its health is vital to the overall health of our body. Colon cancer, which is cancer of the small intestine, is the result of polyps in the colon. These polyps often occurs due to waste remaining in the colon. Body detoxification helps get rid of the waste in the body and keeps the colon clean. Ultimately, body detoxification cleans the entire body through the digestive organs
