================== ARTICLE START ==================
Detoxification is a fancy word for cleaning your blood. There
are many programs available to help, but your body actually has
its own way dealing with toxins. There are two major systems
involved with detoxification: anti-oxidation, and the
detoxification process in the liver.
Oxidation is best illustrated by looking at rust, which is a
reaction of metal to oxygen. When free radicals come in contact
with the body, oxidation can occur. Oxidation causes all kinds
of problems, such as allergies and certain types of sickness.
The body has a natural anti-oxidation system which includes
vitamins such as C, E, B2, bioflavonoid, beta-carotene and other
substances to prevent oxidation. Oxidation occurs at the
cellular level, so detox must occur there as well. Any
deficiency of these in the diet causes problems removing toxins.
What a good full body detox does is also remove impurities from
the blood through the liver. The liver is an important organ,
and is where toxins are processed. The body also uses other
organs such as kidneys, intestines, lungs, lymph nodes and skin
to remove toxins. Most toxins are not water-soluble. When toxins
enter the liver, two groups of enzymes break down the toxins
into water-soluble substances to be excreted via the kidneys and
other organs. When this system is not functioning properly,
toxins can go unfiltered and your whole body suffers.
There are several ways a body detox program boosts your body's
clearing of toxins. Fasting for a short period of time is
usually part of any full body detox. When you fast, your organs
rest. This gives them time to rejuvenate themselves and assist
with the cleansing. In addition to fasting, a good detox program
will stimulate the liver to eliminate common toxins from your
body the way it should have been doing all along. This also
extends to elimination through the skin, kidneys and intestines.
Circulation is always a big part of any natural body detox.
Boosting circulation of the blood through exercise, deep
breathing, and other means helps toxins be carried quickly out
of the bloodstream. The simple act of breathing deeply brings
more oxygen to your blood, thereby allowing for faster
elimination of toxins. Even though oxygen contributes to
oxidation, lack of oxygen can also cause serious problems. Blood
flow helps push more blood through the liver, allowing more
Diet is another major component of a body detox program. It is
important to get rid of any toxins in the diet. It is usually
necessary to cut out all sugar, caffeine, nicotine and other
harmful chemicals from your body. This is one of the most
important components, and it is helpful to continue giving your
body nutrients even after your program is complete.
Abstaining from using certain chemicals also aids in toxin
removal. Free radicals come from many household products.
Perfumes, shampoos, household cleaners, sunscreens, and much
more all contain toxins that get stuck in your body if there is
no way to eliminate it. This is why abstinence and diet are two
important ways to keep your body cleansed.
