Detoxification to Improve Health While Losing Weight

Our body’s are exposed to many toxic substances each day, some of which include the high-processed food and drinks we consume on a daily basis, cosmetics, household cleaners, cigarettes, and environmental pollutants. In this day and age, it is impossible to avoid contact with these harmful substances. Being exposed to these toxic materials each day eventually leads to a decreased performance of the eliminatory organs (the liver, kidneys, and skin), which in turn can lead to organ failure.

Our organs become weaker and weaker over prolonged periods of toxic exposure, which is the result of many chronic diseases. The process of detoxifying the body removes these harmful toxins in order for these vital organs to regain their proper functioning capabilities. During the detoxification process, our body’s are able to safely and efficiently eliminate these harmful substances via the detoxification organs: the bowels, kidneys, liver, lungs, and skin. This toxic elimination is expressed through more frequent bowel movements, urination, respiration, and perspiration.

Benefits of Detoxing the Body Detoxification impacts almost all systems of the body: cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, respiratory, immune, nervous, reproductive, gastrointestinal, urinary, skin, and endocrine. When imbalances occur in these systems, illness and chronic diseases can occur. For detoxification to be effective, it is important that our bodies are provided with the dietary substances needed to perform this normal function.

How Detox Aids in Weight Loss When a buildup of harmful substances occurs in the liver, it begins slowing down. A sluggish liver can result in digestive problems, bloating, sickness, low energy, headaches, irritability, joint pain, PMS, food intolerance and much more. It is also responsible for why many people gain weight easily and struggle to lose that weight.

When the liver isn’t working properly, our bodies hold onto liquids and fat in order to store excess toxins it is unable to break down. Detoxification is a great way to clear out all the waste that is slowing down weight loss and/or preventing us from feeling our best!
