In today’s society, it’s hard to avoid toxins getting into your body. Food additives, air pollution, cigarette smoke, pesticides and insecticides, other pollutants, heavy metals, drugs and alcohol are just some of the ways toxins
can build up in your body, possibly impacting the health of your immune, hormone and neurological systems. Consequently, this may cause you to feel unwell, get headaches, suffer from allergies or even have brittle hair and nails.
What does it mean to detox?
A detox can flush these nasty toxins out of your body. It is a process that attempts to reduce the amount of toxins you have building up in your system, allowing it to work more efficiently and healthily. More than ever, society is focusing on shifting towards a clean, healthy lifestyle, so there’s no wondering why detox diets are suddenly being championed by everyone, from your next door neighbour to international celebrities.
Sounds easy, right? But, if you Google ‘how to detox,’ you will get over 300,000 results – that’s enough to be confusing for anyone. And with so many different opinions out there, it’s hard to determine which the best detox is for you.
How do you detox?
There are many different ways you can go about detoxing your body. Some methods will focus on cleansing major organs such as your liver, kidneys and colon, as these are majorly involved in the detoxification process. Whether you opt for an at-home treatment or consult the help of a health professional, a detox can be achieved in a number of ways, and you can start the process without having to spend any money. Many experts in the industry will recommend that you begin by simply cutting out any foods or other consumables prone to having high toxin levels and a negative impact on the body. This means you should eliminate from your daily routine things such as:
- Wheat products
- Soft drinks
- Energy drinks
- Processed sugars
- Chemical-based cleaning products
- Chemical-based health care products and toiletries.
Chi of Life detox program uses treatments that help flush the excess toxins from your body. This may involve Magnesium baths, clay wraps, edible clay, pranayama breathing, herbal remedies, infrared sauna sessions,
gentle exercise, lymphatic massage, oxygen therapy and organic juices.
Remember, you should always see your doctor before undergoing any health treatment. This includes natural supplements and herbal remedies. A health professional can ensure you follow a personalised detox program that benefits your individual needs and goals.
Long Term or Short Term?
Many detoxes are effective at producing short term results, dramatically reducing the amount of toxic materials in your body. However, there are also many long term methods you can employ, in order to keep the number of toxins in your body low. This may include making simple changes to your lifestyle and routine, such as following an unprocessed diet, eating more organic living foods, incorporating yoga and meditation into your lifestyle, avoiding unhealthy habits.
