What is detoxification? Why is it Important?
Detoxification is a procedure that helps cleanse the body and remove toxins that affects the normal functioning of the cells and organs of the body. Naturally the body is designed to cleanse itself and eliminate harmful toxins that may cause harm to it, but because we are exposed to so many harmful chemical and toxins every day, the body can’t’ get rid of it all. Some of the toxins that we encounter everyday are air pollution, food additives, cigarette smoke, chemical products and radiation from television, computer, and x-ray exposure.

Before advance technology was introduced to mankind, none of these harmful elements are present. The body is able to perform its tasks properly. When these things arrived, the body got overwhelmed, it tried to cope up with the changes, but it exerted more energy and effort to remove these toxins from the body. These changes in bodily processes affect the normal functioning of other bodily systems. Because of this, the body can experience stress, fatigue, weight gain, digestive problems, weak immune system, and insomnia.

Through the process of body detox, fatigue and tiredness can go away. You will feel rejuvenated, more alert, awake, and enthusiastic. You will experience a clean sensation, as you are cleansed internally. Your body’s cleansing action will also spend less time on the process, so other body functions can also operate well.
