Before knowing what detoxification is, we need to know what the toxins are, which we need to detox.
Every day we eat potential toxins into our body, breathe them into our hearts, and track them into our homes and life without ever really knowing where they’ll end up or how much damage they’ll do when they get there! In fact, if you could peek inside your body you’d find fire-retardant chemicals, heavy metals, pesticides, plastic particles, and dozens of other residues of modern life.
DetoxificationÂ is the removal ofÂ toxicÂ substances from the human body.
Human body requires detoxing to allow all spiritual energies to flow in and guide us to release trapped and blocked energy emotions, beliefs and thought, detoxification (or detox for short) opens the way for cleansing on all levels — body, mind and soul.
Detoxification shows positive results along with your spiritualÂ practices. And it is important to detox our body on a regular basis in order to keep the balance with nature and our self.
One very interesting fact about detoxification is that detoxification programs are an inseparable part of all the addiction treatment options. Whenever you go for consultations in addiction treatment centers, you will most probably find the counselors telling you about detoxification.
The recent Detox Craze has reached phenomenal proportions, with manufacturer’s frantically marketing products that promise instant cleansing and purification, in an attempt to fulfill -and obviously profit from- such an overwhelming market demand. Â There are a lot of commercial products claiming to detox your body instantly. The quest for the ideal detox tool or program is on, with a mind-boggling array of products to choose from: Detox supplements, colon cleansing aids, detox foot baths and detox patches. The list is endless! And a real waste of money and time!
In our frantic search for the ultimate detox, we’ve overlooked the ideal detox aid. A natural resource, easily available and also the ELIXIR of life: Water.
If you ask me for the best, cheap and effective detox technique then I’ll suggest you to go for WATER detoxification. Our bodies have livers and kidneys to remove toxins and other waste material. It just needed extra help in the form of water.
There are some natural detox that supports the body’s cleansing and elimination capacity like:
Drinking plenty of water: drinking more and more water will remove toxins from the body in the form of sweat and urine. Drinking hot water also helps to cleanse the nasal cavities.
Steam or sweat bath: There is a valid reason why human beings have used sweat baths for hygienic and health purposes since the Stone Age. It’s because sweating has proven its effectiveness in flushing out toxins and disease and maintaining optimal physical as well as mental health. The skin is our largest organ, eliminating waste via perspiration. Heat causes toxins to be released from cells into theÂ lymphatic fluid. Since sweat is manufactured from lymphatic fluid, the toxins from the lymph are released when the body perspires. Sweating occurs naturally during strenuous activity such as exercise; exposure to the sun; or being in a warm room. Saunas (dry heat) or steam baths (wet heat) create sweat intentionally for therapeutic purposes. This ‘sweat (hypothermic) therapy’ not only releases toxins from the skin but also relaxes muscles, easing aches and pains. Releasing toxins via the skin through perspiration removes the load from the kidneys and liver, so those with impaired liver or kidney function mayÂ safely detoxifyÂ in this manner.
Detox bath: working principle of detox bath is to refresh the core area of the body (around the groin and genitals) during 10 minutes daily or longer, depending on your initial condition, and the results you seek to achieve. This process creates a vibration in the fascia, which sets in motion a roll-back effect that transports digestion’s leftover fats and deposited toxins back to the intestines, where they are later eliminated. Â benefit of fasting is the healing process it triggers
Salt water flush: It’s interesting to know that aÂ salt water flushÂ does a superior (and inexpensive) job at detoxifying your colon than a colonic irrigation procedure? Dissolve 2 level teaspoons of salt in a quart of warm water. Drink first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. After drinking the whole quart of water, you should massage your abdomen for a while and then you were suggested to be near the washroom. Think of the saltwater flush as a bath for the inside of your body, where it draws toxins out from the entire digestive tract. When you imagine all of the waste products trapped in your digestive system – not unlike the slime and build-up that accumulates inside a garden hose or household pipes – it makes good sense that yourÂ insides benefit from a good washing.
Fasting: In the strict dietary sense, fasting is the complete abstinence from all substances except pure water, in an environment of total rest. Juice fasting, a popular variation, is abstinence from all food and drink except water and fresh vegetable and fruit juices. A modified fast includes small amounts of solid food, usually raw fruits as well as raw and steamed vegetables
No one saves us but ourselves. No one can and no one may. We ourselves must walk the path….Â Buddha.
