Detoxification is something our bodies do on a daily basis. It is the process of eliminating toxins through the five eliminatory channels:
In the world we live in today, with polluted water, air and food, our bodies regularly get overloaded with substances that do not support our body – toxins! Our bodies become overloaded and are over-burdened with eliminating toxins. So many undesirable substances stay our bodies.
Surrounding these substances with mucous and fat is one way our system tries to shield us from these invading substances. a good portion is stored in our fat deposits!
A detoxification program is a good way of assisting our body to eliminate and neutralize these harmful toxins.
Let us look at the 5 organs for detoxification:
Liver The liver is the largest internal organ in the body and plays a crucial role in maintaining normal metabolism and detoxifying the body.
Colon Disease begins in the colon. The colon is responsible for both carrying wastes out of the body and nourishing the body. Nutrients are absorbed in the colon. So if your body is storing toxins and excess mucous they will be stuck to the intestinal walls of the colon. Making it very hard for your body to absorb the required nutrients and eliminate the wastes traveling through the colon.
Lungs Your lungs are responsible for helping your body get the required oxygen it needs by processing the air we breathe. The lungs are one of the first organs to intake toxins. A cold is usually a sign that your body is trying to rid itself of toxins and waste matter that has built up to the point of overwhelming your immune system.
Kidneys The kidneys play an important role as a filter for the body as well. Water is vital to helping the kidneys do their job. The average person eliminates approximately 5 pints of water a day. Drinking adequate water is essential.
Lymph The lymphatic system carries a clear fluid which contains excess proteins, wastes, and other elements. This fluid called lymph surrounds the cells of our body to bring them nourishment and carry wastes out of the body.
Unlike the blood, the lymph does not have the heart to pump it through the body. It must rely on the movement of the body and stimulation.
As mentioned earlier, the skin is the largest organ of the body.
