Your body must naturally cleanse itself, but today’s diets make that process difficult. Many turn to internal body cleansing to remove waste products and toxins. A detox treatment is designed to help the body eliminate stored toxins and strengthen the organs involved in this process.
Colon cleansing helps to cleanse the organ which helps the body eliminate waste. A dirty colon can lead to the accumulation of toxins in the body and disease. Through the use of herbal treatments or irrigation therapy, a colon cleanse removes toxins and helps the intestinal tract function properly. It is essential to do this cleaning first so that the waste produced by other detox procedures can be removed efficiently.
Your kidneys clean about 200 pints of blood a day. A kidney cleanse will help your kidneys work more efficiently. It usually involves consuming a large amount of water or juice and then flushing it all out to flush out the kidneys.
Your liver completes about two dozen processes for the body daily, and cleansing this important organ helps the liver support the immune system and support the body’s digestive functions. There are several supplements and liver flush programs available.
Cleaning the lungs is also important for good health. Dairy-rich American diets often produce fatty lung tissue. Cleaning the lungs alleviates this problem.
Finally, a skin cleanse releases toxins lodged in the fatty layers just below the skin. Most are done with herbs, saunas, and sweat lodges.
Cleansing your body of toxins is a great way to keep your systems “clean” and running smoothly. The results are worth it: improved immune system, clearer complexion, better sleep, healing of acne, constipation, disappearance of unpleasant body odor, just to name a few!
