A variety of detox diet plans are popular these days.Undeniably, our bodies are subject to thousands of toxins and chemicals on a daily basis at our work locations, in our homes, through the air that we breathe or our food and water supply. In addition, our diets include more processed foods, sugars and non-healthy fats than ever before. These factors plus other contributors like illness, disease, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, even over-eating, can cause our body's natural cleansing process to struggle or become sluggish.
Research has indicated, even without the inevitable breakdown of our body cleansing functions, the human body is simply not capable of eliminating the variety of toxins and chemicals that are ingested on a daily basis. They will accumulate in our cells (especially fat cells), blood, tissues, organs (colon, liver and brain) and remain stored for an indefinite length of time bringing all kinds of eventual health problems as time goes by.
Learning how to remove toxin is most often achieved through means like the modification of diet, the use of herbs or teas and more radical methods like colon hydrotherapy, body cleansing juice fasting, lemon detox and raw food cleansing. These methods are said to jump start the body's natural detoxification process. In certain cases artificial cleansing techniques such as dialysis may have to be implemented.
The basis behind a good detoxing is to encourage and maximize the body's ability to flush out these toxins and the poisons that have accumulated over time.
