There are so many articles, sites and products that talk about "detoxing" the body. While there are some that fully believe the hype about detox diets that will "rid your body of harmful toxins", here's the truth ladies and gentlemen... Your body already does this on its own!
Welcome to your detox lesson and how your body already has its own built-in detox sytsem. You have your lungs that detoxify by removing gas, your skin that reduces the penetration of toxic substances, and your digestive system that eliminates toxic foods through vomiting or diarrhea. Then you have your two tried and true organs, the kidneys that detoxify by secreting or filtering toxins out of the blood and dispose of them through urine, and your liver that detoxifies by changing the chemical nature of many toxins. Viola! Body detoxified!!
Then there is cleansing. Cleansing is what happens when you help your body's cells get rid of the extra nutrients it has stored up in excess, which can lead to metabolic issues and even weight gain. Although some may think this is only for a person with an unhealthy diet, it happens quite often when people are living a healthy lifestyle, take nutritional supplements, and eat small, but frequent, meals during the day. No matter what your diet, cleansing is a great way to support your body's own autophagy process, which is basically your cells' own internal cleansing process. It gives your hard-working body a break!
