About Detoxing

Detoxing involves removing waste and harmful chemicals or substances from the body’s systems such as the tissues, organs and blood stream. When we detox we want to do so properly and slowly. If we detox too fast the opposite of our desired effect can happen. The body needs to rid its excess waste slowly so that it may be properly voided and not re-filtered into the blood stream. Below is a list of natural detox practices in alphabetical order that can be done on a weekly basis for the safe removal of toxins. Remember to always listen to your body, and when it comes to the steam room and sauna try starting with 15 minutes and no more than 30. You may want to pick a specific day for your detox or spread it throughout the week.
