Is it necessary to detoxify your body? This is an issue that comes up as being debatable quite often. What is detox? It is the removal of toxic or harmful elements from a living organism. Modern living exposes the body to a wide array of potential toxins in the air we breath, the food we eat, and even the hygiene products we use! It is true that the body is designed to rid itself of harmful elements, but it cannot always do this completely. This is partly due to the overload we put on and in ourselves, along with medications and immunizations that can also add to our already taxed bodies. Americans are experiencing a greater toxic burden than ever seen before, which is nearly impossible for the body to keep ahead of.
Some of the symptoms of toxicity include: headaches, fatigue, weight gain, chronic illness, depression, aches and pains, anxiety, sleep problems, autoimmunity, frequent colds and flus, skin rashes/acne, mental fog, infertility, and many signs of chronic illnesses.
Although I try to live a clean, healthy lifestyle, my body still gets over loaded with things that do not belong in it! I admit that I do not eat perfectly, and we are exposed to many chemicals in our environment everyday, some of which we cannot control. As a preventative, I like to incorporate a full body detox into my life every spring and fall. Just as some people do spring and fall housecleaning, it is important to clean out the "house" that you live in - your body! It's the only one you have!
One of the gentlest and most effective detox products I have found is made by the DesBio company. It is a COMPLETE and TOTAL body cleanse, rather than just a specific organ, supported by homeopathics to help the body work through the process. While some detoxification programs can be too harsh, I have found this system to be thorough with minimum difficulties. A person may experience some discomforts, but in my experience, it is doable! Knowing what to expect and how to deal with it as it comes is a huge asset. These discomforts also let you know that you are getting rid of toxins, which is a great relief to your body!
Anyone who is interested in learning more about the detoxing process and if this is right for you can contact me. I would be happy to discuss this with you! And if you decide that you are ready to go to the next level of wellness and cleaning out the toxins, I will walk you through it and be a support to answer questions and concerns.
