Detox, short for detoxiﬁcation, is the body’s natural, ongoing process of neutralizing and eliminating toxins.
Toxins are substances that can potentially harm body tissue, such as waste products that result from nor-mal cell activity (like ammonia, lactic acid, and homocysteine) and chemicals that we are exposed to in our environment, food, and water.
The liver, intestines, kidneys, lungs, skin, blood, and lymphatic systems work together to transform toxins to less harmful compounds and excrete them from the body.
Now, you may be wondering why detoxiﬁcation is so important for everyone, even for those who feel pretty healthy.
Not to sound alarmist, but our modern world is full of toxins, and our bodies take in these toxins and store them, unless we actively help get rid of them. Toxicity starts from the earliest stages of life; even babies these days are born with toxins already in their systems! Unfortunately lots of them.
We absorb toxins from the follow sources:
These toxins are contributing to illness and disease in our world. And while it’s impossible to avoid toxic substances completely, you can help your body expel them with regular detoxiﬁcation.
