Detoxification….. Most folks, when they hear that word think of people who are alcohol or drug addicted  going to a “clinic” for rehab. But  the detoxification I would like to speak about today is unfamilar to a lot of people. The fact of the matter is that over the last 30 to 40 years there have been thousand of chemicals  invented for various uses which we are exposed to on a daily basis. I would also include in this list of toxins we are exposed to  metals, air, water and soil pollutants.  To be more specific, pesticides used to treat our crops and fertilize our flowers and lawns, chemicals used to treat our furniture, mercury in our seafood and carried in the air from industrial uses such as coal burning plants.  Think of anything you put in or on your body such as shampoos, moisturizers, sunscreens and makeup. The list is almost endless. Collectively, year after year your body  is absorbing these substances, many of them to varying degreee have been proven toxic and detrimental to your health.  The good news is that your body has built in features which function to excrete these toxins from your system. Your liver, kidney, lungs and skin as some of the main detoxifying organs of the body do a very good job. But as with many aspects of modern living which we humans were never designed for, your system is probably in a state of toxic overload. What can we do ? Well, you can exercise more. Through perspiration and rapidly induced breathing  we detoxify our system. Also make sure you are ” regular “. Daily bowel movements keep toxins from ” hanging around ” too long in our system.  Indoor pollutants are a growing problem. Keep lots of houseplants such as english ivy and ficus to clean and detoxify your home. Nutritional supplements such as chollella have been shown to bind to metals stored in your body and excrete them along with a bowel movement. Be proactive, read the labels of any products you use on your body to determine if the ingredents in that product are considered safe for your health.
