Let me tell you first what exactly is detoxification, and how it is helpful.
Detoxification or detoxication (detox for short) is the physiological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from a living organism, including the human body, which is mainly carried out by the liver. Additionally, it can refer to the period of withdrawal during which an organism returns to homeostasis after long-term use of an addictive substance. In medicine, detoxification can be achieved by decontamination of poison ingestion and the use of antidotes as well as techniques such as dialysis and (in a limited number of cases) chelation therapy.
Many alternative medicine practitioners promote various types of detoxification such as detoxification diets. Scientists have described these as a “waste of time and money”. Sense About Science, a UK-based charitable trust, determined that most such dietary “detox” claims lack any supporting evidence.
So many of us work hard every day and feel like we can barely get through it without needing some sort of energy boost. We tend to turn to sugar for a quick pick-me-up, but that’s really doing more harm than good. Many people don’t realize that the sluggish and even bloated feeling we get during the day can be the result of excess toxins in the body. Detox drinks help to naturally reduce inflammation, boost energy, support digestion, cleanse the liver and promote healthy skin.
A 2011 study published in the Journal of Alternative and Complementary Medicine assessed the use of clinical detoxification therapies by licensed naturopathic doctors in the United States. One hundred ninety-six naturopathic doctors completed a survey about the use of clinical detoxification therapies; 92 percent of respondents reported using detox therapies and over 75 percent utilized detoxification to treat patients for environmental exposures, general cleaning and preventive medicine, gastrointestinal disorders and autoimmune diseases.
But you don’t need a doctor to detoxify your body. Detox drinks are simple to make — there are a number of fruits, vegetables and herbs that stimulate detoxification while providing vitamins and minerals that keep the body functioning properly. Experiment with detox drinks today and notice how light, fresh and clear-headed you feel afterwards.
I predict that you’re going to want to make detoxing a part of your health routine.
Here’s how you can detox your body through feet
The ancient Chinese medicine practiced a detox method through the feet, based on the belief that the feet contain numerous energy zones which are connected to the internal body organs.
Therefore, they believed that they can cleanse the body from the accumulated toxins through the feet.
We suggest a few ways to try this effective technique:
Ionic Foot Bath
Ionic foot baths are an excellent way to cleanse the body of toxin. They are based on electrolysis, is a technique that uses electrical current to make a chemical reaction.
Initially, open the pores with the help of warm water, and then use salt is used as an anti-inflammatory astringent. The feet absorb the ions and thus get cleansed. The elimination of the toxins turns the water dark.
