Why Should I Detox?

Posted on 22 December 2014

Many People think Detoxing is a fad. It has been used in Eastern culture for thousands of years. Why then, Should I Detox?


Detoxification is the process of removing toxins from the body. It allows your body to press "restart" and begin functioning at a higher level.  The process to detoxify your body cleanses your system. It is one of the best ways to rid your body of toxins, which can slow it down and make it unhealthy. 

Physical Benefits

The most noticeable benefits from detoxification are the physical ones. Since the toxins store up in major organs, detoxification will help these areas the most. The organs which are affected, such as the liver and stomach, will begin to work more effectively. After the detox is completed, you may feel "lighter" and have more energy. Also, since a detox is used to clear away free radicals, your body's immune system will be stronger. Finally, a detoxification regimen will help to clear your blood, helping it circulate. When you detox the body you free up your organs to function the way they should. This helps to give your immune system a boost since you’ll be able to absorb nutrients better.

Mental benefits

Toxins and free radicals that accumulate in the body can also affect brain functions. Before a detox, you may have trouble sleeping, chronic fatigue, and trouble with your concentration. Once you detox you may find that this fogginess disappears  
Lifestyle change  
A benefit that is the most natural can be the change to your lifestyle. As you progress through the body detox, you will begin to feel better physically and mentally. This feeling can be addictive and lead to changing your lifestyle to cut out bad elements which give your body those toxins. Quitting smoking, eating better, and getting more exercise are all actions which help protect the body. After a detox is a perfect time to begin these actions because you feel more energized and do not want to pollute your body again. 

It’s hard to change a long-standing habit, and a detox program is a way to put a wedge between your old ways and your new ones. If you have addictions to sugar, caffeine, fried, or crunchy foods you can use a detox program to help you kill those cravings. Often if you just try to quit eating those foods or drinking those beverages you’ll have limited success, and go back to your old ways. But if you cleanse the body and replace those foods with healthier choices, you can retrain yourself and be more likely to stick to your new lifestyle.
