Put simply, detoxification is cleansing the body on the inside. As important as bathing or brushing your teeth, it is one of the most important health related functions we can perform during our lives, and is surprisingly easy for us to undertake.
Toxicity is a problem that virtually every person will encounter during their lifetime. Toxins come from our food, air, household cleaners, cosmetics, alcohol and prescription drugs, and a variety of other sources. As more toxins accumulate, our bodies are less effective in naturally eliminating those toxins.
Signs of Toxicity
Toxins in the body contribute to a variety of health issues which may include:
- Low energy
- Mental fog
- Low sex drive
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome
- Digestive problems
- Chronic Pain and arthritis
- Skin problems
- Allergies and sensitivities
In today’s toxic environment, tissue acid wastes, chemical and heavy metal residues build up in the body resulting in a greater incidence of allergies, mental, and physical incapacitation. To combat the effects, numerous products and programs are available to support the body in its natural cleansing process. More and more alternative health practitioners are introducing detoxification programs to reduce these symptoms and maintain health.
All healing traditions – Egyptian, Native American, Ayurvedic, Homeopathic, Chinese, and Shamanic – except Western Medicine offer body purification as a means of healing and avoiding disease.
Types of Body Detoxification
To help in your research process, the following is a sampling of some available cleanses:
Herbal Colon Cleanse – herbal remedies available in liquid or pill form, taken in conjunction with a high fibre, nutrient rich diet. Typically taken once per day, the herbs help to release waste and toxins stored in the digestive system.
Colon Hydro-therapies – bathing the colon with purified warm water helps to eliminate the build up of fecal matter in the colon, while also removing excess mucus, bacteria, and parasites present in the waste matter. Hydro-therapies treat acne and other common skin problems, while promoting regular bowel movements without diarrhea or constipation.
3 in 1 FIT Premium – Detox Foot Bath – has 3 modalities in one system. Far Infrared Heat provides a gentle, radiant heat therapy to stimulate circulation and improve your metabolism. FIR has been shown to help treat arthritis, muscle pain and backaches. Ionic Foot Bath Detoxification Accelerates the removal of toxins from the body through the process of osmosis. This reduces toxicity levels to help prevent illness and disease. Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation (T. E. N. S.) helps relieve joint and muscle pain.
Chelation Therapy – administering chelating agents to eliminate heavy metals from the body. Chelating agents bond with metal ions and together, are excreted by the kidneys and eliminated.
Many products are available, ranging in price and effectiveness. Just remember the only good detox is one you’re going to do!
