In today’s world we are all at risk of toxic stress– our bodies naturally create toxins as a by-product of metabolism. When you add to this stress, contaminants in our food and water, poor exercise habits and exposure to industrial pollutants our hardworking organ of detoxification, the liver is under a tremendous load. If you are feeling tired, lethargic, depressed have aches and pains or are having digestive problems your liver may be having trouble keeping up waste elimination.
The idea that many health problems are caused by accumulated toxicity is not new. Nearly all ancient healthcare systems including traditional Chinese and Ayuvedic medicine were based on simple cleansing and detoxifying rituals which were used to enhance the natural processes of the body, give energy and clarity of thought.
Cleansing or detoxifying is about resting, cleaning and nourishing the body from the inside out. By removing and eliminating toxins, then feeding your body with healthy nutrients, cleansing can help protect you from disease and renew your ability to maintain optimum health and well-being.
Since the end of World War II we have been exposed to an ever-increasing amount of toxic man-made chemicals. Of the 85,000-plus industrial chemicals now registered with the US federal government, most are completely unstudied and literally hundreds end up in our body.
While the ancients understood the importance of cleansing while living in a relatively unpolluted world, in today’s polluted world it has become critical that we cleanse to maintain our health.
How Does Cleansing Work?
Simply put, cleansing is primarily about cleaning the blood. It does this mainly by removing impurities from the blood in the liver, where toxins are processed for elimination. The body also eliminates toxins through the kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph and skin. However, when our inner ecosystem is compromised and toxins aren't properly filtered and every cell in the body can be adversely affected.
A cleansing program can assist the body's natural cleaning process by:
- Resting the organs through fasting;
- Stimulating the liver to drive toxins from the body;
- Promoting elimination through the intestines, kidneys and skin;
- Improving circulation of the blood; and
- Refuelling the body with healthy nutrients.
Cleansing works because it addresses the needs of individual cells, which are the smallest units of human life. Just as we need to change the oil in our cars to keep them running smoothly our bodies need to be cleansed to eliminate accumulated toxins and rebalance biochemical processes.
