Week 1 of series:
The body is an outstanding machine that even comes equipped with its own detox system. It is efficient in every sense, but much like any item with moving parts, it must be cared for. A huge part of caring for the body is, in fact, cleansing it.
No other generation before ours has been exposed to as many man-made chemicals and toxic substances as we are. The air we breathe is polluted, the water we drink is not clean, the food we eat is processed, the food for our soul is provided by a sensationalizing media, our life-style is sedentary, our body cells lack oxygen, vitamins, minerals and enzymes, our organs of detoxification and excretion are overwhelmed and our body is overloaded with waste products and toxic metabolites which render it vulnerable to all sorts of bacteria and viruses. How do we survive?
In a nutshell, the body moves toxins out via the lungs, liver, lymphatic, kidneys, colon and skin. However, it is necessary to ensure that the organs of elimination are able to handle their toxic loads.
While most of us would likely never dream of ignoring a warning light on our car’s dashboard that tells us it’s time to change the oil or perform regular maintenance, many people ignore the telltale signs that their body is in dire need of a cleanup.
But how do you identify your body’s warning signs? If you answer yes to any of the following questions, it is definitely time to tune up your detoxification.
In most cases, improving detoxification is an effective solution for these symptoms, as they often reflect nothing more than a squeaky wheel in need of maintenance. Even more importantly, by addressing these warning signs now, you can help assure better long-term health and avoid the progression of minor problems to more serious conditions.
This series will share with you some valuable details about those organs, how to keep them healthy and functioning efficiently and extending into the tips and tricks you want to know about evaluating those organs.
