Detoxification or simple detox has been trending a lot lately. The natural health method has promised many great results such as fast weight loss, skin rejuvenation, and world peace! Kidding aside, detox gives the best results when done the best and the right way. And believe me, starving and daily lemon water only is definitely not the best way.
Your liver, the second largest organ in the body, has the main job of filtering and neutralizing all the poisons accumulated. They come from many different sources such as pollution, processed food, and even stuff that you apply to your skin. When the liver is doing its job, you’ll get the best benefits of energy, hormone balance, great sleep, good moods and clear skin.
But when the liver is congested or overwhelmed with all the poisons it faces, you’ll show the symptoms of PMS, gaining weight, acne, pain in the joints, rashes on your skin, high cholesterol levels, depression/irritability, fatigue, and feelings of puffiness or inflammation.
An overworked liver can look at many culprits. Some of these are part of the modern 21st century lifestyle. Some examples are toxins from food, too much alcohol, over the counter and dangerous recreational drugs, birth control pills, cosmetic and body care products, and of course pollution. Imagine all of these are needed to be detoxed by your liver on a daily basis, excreted through sweat, digestive tracts and urine.
Those who don’t drink water regularly, don’t do “No.2” daily, and take in more junk and toxins via food, drink and pollution are in definite need of detoxification, especially if the symptoms of an “overwhelmed” liver are observed.
The best frequency to do detoxification is twice yearly. Do it during the spring or the spring and fall for a period of 14 to 21 days. Select from many interesting ways to do cleansing. Some are more effective or safer than others. Generally speaking, avoid inflammatory foods like gluten, dairy, soy, corn, eggs, sugar, alcohol and coffee. At the same time, taking a tincture or supplement with liver supportive herbs, such as milk thistle, will suffice.
Best detoxification for a cleaner and healthier you!
