Our bodies naturally detoxify everyday as part of a normal body process. Detoxification is one of the body’s most basic automatic functions of eliminating and neutralizing toxins through the colon, liver, kidneys, lungs, lymph and skin. Unfortunately in this day and age, with the pollution found in the air, water and food we eat, our bodies have a hard time keeping up. Our chemicalized diet with too much animal protein, too much saturated and trans fats, too much caffeine and alcohol radically changes our internal ecosystem.
Body systems and organs that were once capable of cleaning out unwanted substances are now completely over-loaded to the point where toxic material remains inside our tissues. Our bodies try to protect us from dangerous substances by setting it aside, surrounding it with mucous and fat so that it will not cause an imbalance or trigger an immune response (some people carry up to 15 extra pounds of mucous that harbors this waste)
Detoxification through special cleansing diets and colonics is the best way to assist your body’s natural self-cleaning system. It is especially important for immune-compromised diseases like cancer, arthritis, diabetes and chronic fatigue. However, even if your diet is good, a spring cleanse can revitalize your system and rid your body of harmful bacteria, viruses and parasites. It is a simple three step process.
Step 1: Elimination
This process cleans out mucous and toxins from the intestinal tract and major organs.
There are many ways to eliminate toxins from the body however the most popular, effective and safest forms of detoxification are through Herbal Cleansers and Colon Hydrotherapy.
Herbal Colon Cleansers
Herbal cleanses usually come in the form of a supplement containing plant-derived soluble and insoluble fiber and potent detoxifying herbs. Herbal colon cleansers assist your body in cleansing the colon of accumulated toxic build-up and impacted fecal matter and helps prevent the formation of new build-up.
Colon Hydrotherapy is a safe effective method of removing waste from the large intestine, without the use of drugs. The filtered, temperature regulated water is introduced into the bowel via a disposable speculum. This softens and loosens faeces, resulting in evacuation through natural peristalsis down through disposable waste tubing that is piped away through the colon therapy machine. There is no odour and modesty is maintained at all times. This flushing process is repeated during a therapeutic treatment. Check out where to find a colon hydrotherapy clinic near you.

Step 2: Rebuilding healthy tissues
When toxins and wastes are removed, optimal function is restored. During this process eat only fresh and simply prepared nutrient-rich vegetarian foods. Drink lots of pure filtered water, caffeine free herbal teas are acceptable. Include vitamin and mineral supplements and herbal aids for your specific needs.
How Can I Re-build? Some of the best ways to re-build the nutrients our bodies need back into our systems is through eating foods high in nutrients (superfoods) and through supplementation.
