Detoxification is the ideal form of natural prevention and cure. It is a method for cleansing contaminated cellular environment. To implement body detoxification it is important to understand the nature of this ancient way of living.

What are Toxins?

Toxins are impurities that destroy our body in different ways. We can absorb them through the skin, mouth and nose or internally by ingesting them or producing them.

Toxins are fat soluble and water soluble.

Water soluble toxins are removed through excretion, fat soluble are stored insight the body, within the organs and a lot of them you can find in the fatty tissue cells and around the fat cells.

What are the sources of toxins: anything we eat, drink, inhale and touch. All living organisms are exposed to toxins.

What are Free Radicals?

The oxygen we burn produces energy and bio-products. This process is called oxidization. It’s just the other name of free radicals or oxidants. They destroy the cells by oxidization. For example, take any fruit, cut it and live it for 2 hours. It becomes brownish, mushy and watery.

The smell of the fruit is changed and creates bacteria. (Oxidization). The same process occurs within our body. The fluid released from the fruit is the reaction of the nature to neutralize the acidity. Exactly the same principal we’ll see with the human’s body. We call it water retention, cellulite, we feel sluggish and look puffy.

What Damage Can Free Radicals Do?

Most of the health problems are caused by free radicals. Diseases like arthritis, diabetes, or any other disease where the body is slowing down are linked to the damaging presence of free radicals. The most devistating damage free radicals can do, especially for women, are weight gain and aging. Free radicals could attack the entire body. A lot of serious health problems such as cancer are linked to free radicals.

Body Detoxification Organs

We know all of our main detox filters but do we really know what exactly they do for us? Do we care about them?

  • Skin: The skin is our largest organ. Skin is capable to absorb both, fat soluble and water soluble toxic waste, storing straight into the rich blood supply of the dermis.
Fat soluble toxins are easily absorbed because of the epidermis lipid and protein (keratin) structure. Toxins will also take the same route out, if exfoliation (elimination of dead skin cells) is effective.
  • Lungs: When we Inhale they bring oxygen into millions alveoli (Air sacs in the bronchiols), oxygen then carried the rest of the body. Exhaling diffuses Carbon dioxide and expels from our system through the bronchial tubes.
  • Gastrointestinal tract: The G.I. tract is a very large organ. It includes the mouth, pharynx, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine and rectum.

G.I tract is connected with the outside world. Example: The G.I tract stretches from the mouth to the anus. Millions of bacteria live in the stomach. They are very useful by breaking the food down.

Bacteria could be very dangerous. If they leave the stomach and enter the body, the result could be lethal. Major part of the toxins within our body is in the colon. They form mucoid film over the inner lining. Over 70% of all diseases are “born” in the colon.

  • Liver: The liver is the largest gland and the main detox organ.  Liver processes all toxins and eliminates them from the body. Using specific enzymes, liver transforms organic and non-organic toxic waste into water soluble compounds which are released from the body through the kidneys and the gastrointestinal tract.

An over burdened liver is not capable to dispose everything on time, therefore big amounts of impurities are backing up and remain in the liver cells, causing irreversible damage.

Due to the lifestyle we have these days, the environment and the stress on a daily basis,  detoxification should become part of our life. A good start is incorporating antioxidants in our nutrition. For complete body detox take colon cleanse products.
