With all of the toxins we encounter on a daily basis, dis-ease is something we will all face at some point in our lives, whether it is the flu or cancer. There are toxins all around us, some we knowingly take in like breathing polluted air, and others we aren’t aware of like those in our food packaging. Our bodies are designed to impede harmful chemicals, bacteria, and any foreign substances; however, there are so many toxins in our environment now, it is difficult for our bodies to handle all of it.
Our bodies can become overwhelmed and unable to process and expel harmful substances, and in time the toxins will build up and affect our bodily systems—our metabolism, brain chemistry, immune system, endocrine system, and more. Regular detox is important to relieve the stress both the environment and we inflict on our body.
Nearly anyone is a candidate for detox; regardless of how healthy a lifestyle we live, there are toxins that we cannot avoid. If you are experiencing any of the following, detox may help you achieve your goal of a healthier you.
- Persistent headaches, muscle aches and muscle fatigue
- Several mercury fillings and dental amalgams
- Food allergies
- Stubborn weight loss
- Hormonal imbalances and consistent use of hormone replacement treatments such as birth control or creams like progesterone
- Menstrual difficulties
- Consistent use of NSAIDs such as ibuprofen or acetaminophen
- Skin abnormalities such as acne, rosacea or eczema
- A lifetime of consuming the Standard American Diet
The body removes toxins through digestive elimination, urine, and sweating. A comprehensive detox will address all of these through diet and skin treatments. With the diet, certain foods will be eliminated or introduced to help your organs function at optimum levels and reduce toxicity. Herbs and supplements can also be important parts of a detox. Two significant ways to aid in detox are using Far Infared technology and Seaweed Body Wrap.
Far infrared warms the body so not only does it help detox through sweat, it also increases circulation which makes it easier for the blood to bring nutrients and oxygen to the cells. It boosts the immune system and helps to cleanse the liver and kidneys. Furthermore, far infrared penetrates deep beneath the skin to ease muscle and joint pain; it may also aid in fat loss, chronic fatigue, water retention, skin disorders, as well as elimination of heavy metals, poisons, and carcinogenic material from the body.
The skin is the body’s largest organ and is the first line of defense from pathogens. It is constantly renewing itself and in order to penetrate more deeply it is best to exfoliate the top layer of dead skin cells before a wrap. Sea salt or dry skin brushing are the most common and effective methods. After exfoliating, the vitamins, antioxidants, and amino acids in the seaweed can seep into the body, nourishing, detoxifying, firming, and hydrating it. Seaweed wraps may also help decrease aches and pains, promote relaxation and reduce stress. Detoxifying from stress is an important aspect in regenerating the body and is part of a well rounded system.
