The Importance of Detoxification

If you're breathing – which we sincerely hope you are – you're taking in toxins. You're also ingesting them and drinking them and bathing with them and ... the list goes on. Toxins are associated with many conditions, ranging from acne and headaches to neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson's, and cancer. In order to help prevent these ailments, it's necessary to detoxify your system; things just work better when they're clean, and that goes for your body.

If you're looking to more effectively ward off toxin-related diseases, a good place to start is with the addition of more fruits and vegetables to your diet (organic, please!). They're a great source of phytochemicals and antioxidants, which bolster the body's ability to rid itself of toxic substances. Some of the best sources include cruciferous vegetables, like broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, and cauliflower; leafy greens like spinach, kale, and watercress; and tomatoes, red grapes, and berries. Adding more of these foods to your diet is a good way to help immediately, and for a more complete detoxification there are holistic methods (IV therapy, colon hydrotherapy, coffee enemas) that work wonders.

When your system is free from years worth of built-up toxins, it's able to function much more efficiently. You'll be amazed at the difference.
