Chemical Detoxification: Could This Be the Answer for So Many Health Problems?
As technology becomes more pervasive people are exposed to more chemicals and toxins. Contaminants are in the air, water and food we consume. As household cleaners, weed killers and pesticides are formulated to be more effective, the chemical formulas have grown more complex – therefore more difficult to neutralize and eliminate from the human organism. Pathology samples of human hair and tissue reveal an astounding concentration of these toxins. Though these toxins may not always be the prime cause of premature mortality, certainly they are high enough to disrupt normal bodily functions – adding to the toxic load the body has to deal with.
How toxins affect the body?
Toxins become detrimental to health if they remain in the body. Chemicals adhere to organs, and glands which control cellular functions. Our bodies are totally capable of removing these toxins under the right circumstances. But if the exposure rate is greater than the body’s ability to detoxify – entrapment occurs in the fat cells. Where should detoxification begin? The clear line of cleansing the body begins with first cleaning the intestinal tract, the liver and kidneys. Cleaning the body is similar to cleaning a large swimming pool. It makes sense to first clean the filters before establishing a proper pH for the water.Similarly, the main filtration systems of the body need to be cleaned first, to take the burden off of the rest of the body. Then various herbs are capable of cleaning the body at a cellular level.
Herbs that give the best results?
Some of the most effective herbs help revive sluggish organs. Always look for these herbs for the greatest effectiveness. These are just a few of the hundreds of herbs I use for detoxification.

How often is detoxification needed?
After a detox program, it is vital to recall how you may have been exposed contaminants in order to not re-introduce them into your body. Performing a detoxification does not mean that your fight against contamination is over. Detoxification should be performed regularly, because chemical toxins will only increase as the preferred modern lifestyle introduces more and more insidious chemicals into the environment.
