We are continually exposed to external toxins such as pollutants, pesticides, drugs, alcohol, chemicals, heavy metals, and even cosmetics. Internally our bodies produce waste byproducts such as ammonia, carbon dioxide & free radicals as a result of normal metabolic function. Our bodies are designed to rid itself of toxins naturally, but can become overburdened.
Toxicity can contribute to a wide range of symptoms and conditions: joint or muscle pain, digestive & gastrointestinal problems, fatigue, headaches, food cravings, skin problems, irritability, weight gain, brain fog, & insomnia to name a few. Detoxification is important because your body won’t heal properly if it is too toxic!
Of course healthy diet such as plant-based, organic & alkaline foods with lots of green veggies is the best way to go, but consider giving your body a break from digestion with a cleanse. If you can’t go on a retreat (www.detoxcleansingretreat.com at Harbin Hot Springs June 27) consider a 21 day Purification Program (Standard Process) or even a 10 day cleanse (Purium).
