Detoxification is the physiological process of removing toxins from the body.
Toxins are constantly getting into us from the environment or being made inside of us from what we put into our body. Some sources of toxins that need to be cleared are pesticides, medications, alcohol, food preservatives and hormones.
What a lot of people don’t realize is that even with a really clean diet and lifestyle, there’s always stuff to detox and clear! It’s a normal part of our body’s function!
Unfortunately, these detox pathways can sometimes get bogged down.
This modern world gives our bodies a lot to deal with!
And if we’re under a lot of stress, not exercising enough and not eating as well as we should then we can end up with toxic overload.
When we’re not detoxing well, we can get symptoms like indigestion, brain fog, insomnia, joint pain, fatigue, constipation and weight gain … among many others! Setting aside time to boost your detox pathways is a great thing to do periodically to reduce symptoms now and improve your long-term health.
