In today’s society of consumers we often don’t consider the potential consequences of our consumption. Surprisingly, there are hundreds of everyday products that accumulate or contain harmful toxins. Here is an abbreviated list: carpet, cosmetics, detergents, electronic equipment, hair spray, lotion, perfume, plastic, shampoo, and spot removers. Even acidified foods like bananas, beef, peanuts, soy, flour, and corn can be included in this list. The body is constantly bombarded with these chemicals and toxins and is unable to function at optimal levels. This in turn leads to a sluggish immune system and “dis-ease.” Individuals that suffer from diabetes, high blood pressure, digestive issues, skin disorders, and allergies usually end up treating symptoms, but never get to the real cause of their problems. Detoxification is the answer to treating the "root cause" of many health problems. While detoxification may seem like a fad, it is the most effective way of cleansing the body at the cellular level. It is this cleansing of the cell that releases toxins and promotes weight loss.
What do you consider to be the most important organ in the body? Some may assume the heart, but actually it’s the liver. The heart pumps blood throughout the body, but it only circulates what is present in the bloodstream. The bloodstream is filled with what gets taken into the body through fluids, food, the skin, and the environment. Therefore, a properly functioning liver is vital because it filters the blood that circulates and rids it of toxins. One of the best ways to achieve liver health is to detox the body. The liver is chief in command and its main concern is fighting off unwanted particles in the body…toxins.
