Sadly, something terrible happens to our bodies as we grow older. There are toxic substances that will linger there unless measures are taken to remove them. Our bodies are able to flush some of these toxins out on their own, but sometimes helping them along with a detox is the only way to assure that these harmful chemicals are out of our systems for good.
As our body breaks down food, it uses certain organs to extract the nutrients while at the same time processes the waste products that it can’t use. The problem is that these organs are less effective the older we get. As the harmful substances start to build up, our bodies gradually lose the ability to filter them out properly. This is the main reason why people perform full body detoxes. The good thing about them is that they can be performed at home and are even good for losing a little bit of weight. The reason you lose this weight is because your body dilutes the toxins by storing them in fat cells as well as water, and these tainted cells are flushed out of the body. That’s why it is extremely important to stay hydrated during a detox, if you decide to do one.
Most serious detoxification techniques will take at least a week to perform. One plan, called the master cleanse, takes about ten days to complete and focuses on radically, but temporarily, changing your diet in order to get your body back into it’s own natural cleansing mode. This highly effective plan has helped many people flush out the unwanted sludge that has built up in their systems over the years.
