Posted on: October 10th, 2013 by Hayley James No Comments


Toxins are in the food we eat, the water we drink, the air we breathe.  It is everywhere. We can not avoid them. Fortunately, our body has a built-in mechanism to fight them off. But there’s only so much the body can do. It needs a bit of assistance from us. That's why we need to resort tonatural body cleansing.

Body cleansing is used around the world for mental and physical purposes.  Unlike detoxifying which is an intense and longer cleansing program which addresses specific toxins and areas of the body, body cleansing is usually done without necessarily abstaining from food.

So how can the body eliminate the wastes and toxin build-up?

Although the body is really functioning as one, the major organs involved are as follows:

1. Colon – helps in disposing the bowel from the liver

2. Lymphatic System – transports wastes and toxins from cells and the circulatory system to each of organs involved in the elimination of toxins from the body for proper elimination

3. Skin –toxins are eliminated by sweating

4. Kidneys – process waste products from the blood, toxic substances in the urine and water-soluble toxins from the liver 

5. Lungs – filters and purges toxins through breathing

6. Liver – changes destructive toxins into less harmful substances that the colon and kidneys can eliminate

Here are the benefits  of body cleansing which can improve your overall well-being.
