Posted on: October 1st, 2013 by Hayley James No Comments


Do you take a bath?

Do you brush your teeth?

Do you clean your house?

Do you clean your car?

Do you clean your closet?

Well, we do a lot of cleaning and de-cluttering from the superficial level, why not clean your body from the inside and detoxify? That's right, to detoxify is to get your body clean and healthy which will result in a lot of positive ways especially when done in a healthy, safe and controlled environment. Read the 5 ways to detox to know how.

Detoxifying can help you in a lot of ways. Here are some of the reasons why you need to detox:

1. This will eliminate the toxins from the body.

Like it or not, all of us are exposed to a lot of toxins one way or another. These toxins may be environmental pollutants, cancer-causing chemicals, preservatives, pesticides, heavy metals, and industrial waste which are stored in our tissues and cells throughout the body. These elements can affect our bodies in terms of metabolism, behavior and immune system which can lead to diseases like cancers, neurological diseases, heart disease, strokes and more.

But don't fret! Our bodies can heal itself because we are gifted with built-in warriors to deal with these dangers.  The problem is our immune system may be overloaded making us vulnerable to fight off these harmful elements.

 Detoxifying assists and improves the natural functions of our bodies by strengthening our  immune system to function properly and fight off diseases.

2. This is a good way to lose weight.

As mentioned above, the toxins inside our body can affect our metabolism and our ability to burn fat. When the body eliminates the toxins especially the ones stored in fat cells through detoxifying our metabolism increases which can lead to losing the extra fats. 

3. Detoxifying is a way to slow down aging.

Just like the toxins that detoxifying can eradicate, it can also rid the body of free radicals and heavy metals which can be responsible for aging. Detoxifying assists in increasing nutrient absorption particularly antioxidants and vitamins which are good elements to fight stress.

Detoxifying is also know to improve one's skin quality, strengthens hair and nails and gives us a natural, healthy glow.

4. It increases energy and improves quality of life.

With the heavy baggage of toxins gone, you can expect to feel lighter and have more mental, physical, and emotional energy after detoxifying. Studies show that detoxifying leads to healthier sleeping habits and increased energy.  Thus, detoxifying can tremendously improve your outlook and behavior towards life.

5. Restores balance to our body's system leading to mental and emotional clarity.

We would want all our body systems working harmoniously together. Without clogging its ways to function properly, after getting rid of the unwanted toxins, detoxifying can give us the balance that we want and need.  And when the body's systems are aligned, a radical shift in our well-being encompassing our mental and emotional states also occurs.

With the restoration of balance, we're clear and grounded and we can see better and deal with more things. We can make better judgment, analyze things clearly and see things in a more positive perspective.
