Does Detoxing Really Work? The Founder of Eden Wellness gives us a breakdown.
etoxing has recently become a very popular word on the lips of many, a process many feel they need to go on, some already include into their lifestyles and others just don’t believe in.
Understanding a detox and why we need to detoxify our bodies regularly is very important so don’t just jump on the bandwagon of “I’m detoxing” without knowing all about it.
Thankfully our bodies are naturally designed to cleanse themselves of environmental and ingested toxins, but sometimes the digestive system gets overwhelmed by these toxins seeing as they are now everywhere.
Safe to say the level of pollution increases as the years go by and we are inevitably exposed to pollutants, genetically modified foods, chemically laden cleaning and skin products, motor fumes, OTC medicines, and general bacteria and viruses in the environment; it is only normal that our liver and other organs of detoxification become overwhelmed and the excess toxins that the body is unable to deal with is then stored in our fat cells and in other tissues of the body.
This accumulation of toxins can then lead to toxic damage which gives way for many diseases, as it presents itself with unpleasant effects such as headaches, skin breakouts, fatigue, depression, digestive issues causing bloat and gas, puffy eyes and dark circles, sinus congestion, insomnia, impaired thyroid function, fluid retention, fat accumulation, all the way up to life threatening diseases and organ failure.
How does a detox help?
A detox is a healing process whereby you feed you body with non toxic foods and drinks.
A detox can be done with fruits, vegetables and natural/ organic foods.
The best way to detoxify the system is to start with a juice cleanse of a variety of organic, pure and natural fruit and vegetable based juices which help supercharge your system with the essential minerals, phytonutrients and active enzymes that are present in fruits and vegetables. A juice detox jumpstarts you into a healthy lifestyle by committing come days to drinking only 100% restorative plant based juices, giving your digestive system a break, which helps accelerate and enhance the body’s natural detoxification process by infusing phytonutrients, vitamins and minerals that help hydrate your cells, flush out toxins, heal and nourish the body.
Apart from clearing out toxic waste, there are other reasons a juice detox is good for you;
