Detoxification is the process by which toxins (e.g. parasites, pathogens, pollutants, synthetic chemicals, heavy metals, and other forms of foreign matter) are eliminated from our bodies. While our bodies naturally detox harmful compounds through the liver, kidneys, intestines, lungs, skin and lymphatic system, some genetic mutations or an unhealthy lifestyle can inhibit their ability to eliminate all toxins. In order to help the body remove toxins, many people turn to various detoxification treatments, including those listed below.
Detoxification should always be done under the guidance of a qualified healthcare practitioner. Moving toxins through the body can have negative health consequences if done too quickly or if the body's detoxification pathways are blocked.
As with any type of full wellness support, it is important to fully research and form your own opinion on detoxification in partnership with a qualified healthcare professional.
