Detoxing is all the rage these days! A quick google search yields millions of hits with all types of detox recipes, supplements and tips to detoxify your body. Many celebrities even swear by it before a major red carpet event. More and more, people who are stressed and tired are turning to detoxification as a means to cleanse their systems and improve their health.
So why is this practice suddenly gaining in popularity? When you really think about it, it’s not all that surprising, because let’s face it, the world we live in is dirty! The air is polluted, our water is full of chemicals, our food is sprayed with pesticides or pumped full of hormones, not to mention being heavily processed under the guise of “convenience” and packed full of preservatives and additives.
While the organs of our body are naturally geared towards detoxification, supporters of detoxing believe that with all the extra toxins in our systems as a result of our rapid development, sometimes our bodies can use a little help to purify them. Detoxing gets all the muck out of your system and helps to restore the body’s balance, resulting in homeostasis of the body, mind and soul. It provides your body with a “nutritional sabbatical”, so to speak, which is believed to make it much better at dumping the waste and absorbing nutrients.
