Detox – Overview
Detoxification is a process, which involves flushing out of toxins that have accumulated in our body. Furthermore, to improve the bio-availability of nutrients, it is essential to get rid of the dangerous toxins first. Toxins accumulate in our body over a period of time, largely due to improper eating habits and high stress.
What are Toxins
Toxins enter our system through pesticides, chemicals in water, pollutants in the air, personal care products, perfumes, soaps, shampoos, fresh paint, furniture polish, drugs. Apart from dust particles, carbon monoxide is responsible for half of all air pollution.
Other gases that pollute the air include nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxides, and hydrocarbons. These gases enter our bloodstream through the lungs, displace oxygen and can cause serious respiratory problems. Suspended particles in the air, when inhaled may result in bronchial irritation and asthma. Hydrocarbons can damage skin, liver, blood, central nervous system, lungs, and also the kidneys.
What are Polluting Toxins
Toxins are omnipresent. However, the effects of these toxins on each of us vary widely. They can be acute or chronic depending on the circumstances, does, the length of exposure. For instance, if a person eats poorly, travels extensively, leads a highly stressed life, and does not exercise (due to lack of time), this individual will get easily affected by these pollutants, then a person who chooses to eat sensibly and live healthily.
This means that whilst we have little control over problems that surround us, we can definitely rev up our machinery to tackle these problems better. We cannot relocate to the Himalayas to get away from these toxins but we can definitely detoxify our body.
Avoiding Toxic Food Helps
If we eliminate foods that contribute to our toxicity (sugar, maida, junk, refined foods) and eat those that help cleanse the body, our health will improve since we end up losing the excess weight in our body, which could lead to dangerous health issues such as cholesterol, diabetes, and heart diseases. There are various methods with the help of which we can detoxify our body. Herbs, vitamins, minerals, vegetable juices, correct breathing (pranayam) saunas, and aromatherapy, exercise help in the process detoxification.
