Detoxing or detoxification, is the body's natural, ongoing process of neutralising or eliminating toxins from the body through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph, and skin. The human body can become toxic or polluted from the things that we consume and from our polluted environments.

Having too many toxins in your body can lead to a range of symptoms including tiredness, weight gain, behavioral problems, lowering of emotions, lowered immune systems, and skin conditions.

There are 2 areas to which toxins are linked to. These are Environmental related toxins and Internal Source toxins.

Environmental toxins can be anything from smoke and air pollution, chemical residues in food, chemicals from paints, plastics, furnishings, pesticides, deodorants, detergents, and many other house hold products just to name a few.

Internal sources of toxicity can develop from drugs, undigested foods, dehydration, malnutrition, and from poor diet containing too much animal protein, saturated and trans fats, too much caffeine, alcohol, soft drinks, junk food, processed foods, and unfiltered water.

The effect toxins can have on our bodies shows in our genera lfitness and health. They can make you feel sluggish and stressful, your body may experience continuous aching, diarrhea or constipation, or lethargy and clumsiness. Rapid weight gain and the inability to lose excess weight can also be signs of toxins in your body.

Potential benefits of Detoxing the body are:

* Improving skin tone, looking younger

* Enhance immune system

Eliminating Toxins:

Here are some ideas to help you start your detox and help eliminate toxins around your home.

Air pollution

In cities is well known but the air in your home can be even more toxic as it becomes stale and accumulates.

Contributing factors are synthetic building materials, paints, new furnishings that give out gas pollutants (i.e. furniture, curtains,& carpets), toiletries, and house hold cleaning products.

To help eliminate toxins in your home reduce usage of toxic cleaners and try switching to safety conscious toiletries.

Food Choices. There are many foods and beverages that can easily be cut off from your diet in order to cleanse your body. The usual suspects are caffeine, alcohol, fast foods, meats, and dairy.

Other not so obvious are ingredients such as preservatives and flavour enhancers or flavours found in take aways and processed foods. Also be aware of the abundance of pesticide sprays found on fruits and vegetables that an ordinary wash doesn't always eliminate and actually adds to our toxicity.

For the most effective detox program you should contact your health care practitioner for advice to address your specific needs.
