It’s simple, really. Our bodies are designed to detoxify every day as part of our natural biological processes. Our colon, kidneys, liver, lungs, lymphatic system and skin function to eliminate and neutralize the toxins with which we come in contact. It is our daily choices that determine the extent of our toxic load.
If our body is overburdened by attempting to rid itself of harmful environmental toxins such as food additives and preservatives, synthetics, pollutants, pesticides, and herbicides, it is not able to operate functionally. Basic processes including proper digestion, nutrient absorption, fat metabolism, or simply maintaining an adequate level of hydration become extremely difficult. The result is that we develop allergies or sensitivities, feel tired, foggy, irritable, depressed, bloated, and constipated while ultimately becoming a breeding ground for disease.
Over 70% of our immune system is located within our gut, our intestines. It is vital that we provide this internal powerhouse with the fuel to run as designed and the opportunity to remove excess waste in order to obtain optimal health. This is where periodic seasonal cleanses are crucial!
