The Importance of Proper Detox
There is a mind-boggling amount of environmental toxins that impact your body each and every day. Our environment has become incredibly polluted over the last 50 years, brought on by industrial farming practices and general pollution of air, land and sea. When you pair this with stealth infections and compromised gut health, it’s a recipe for disaster when it comes to your health.
Additionally, we are exposed to many more man-made chemicals (so-called xenobiotics ) today – present in medications, beauty products, cleaning supplies, residual pesticides in foods – seriously increasing nutrient requirements for proper detox!
You see, without consistent detoxification support, these toxins accumulate inside your body, ultimately triggering more serious disorders that affect hormone balance, digestion, joint health, and proper mental function.
Yet oftentimes, people dealing with these ailments will turn to medications to merely address symptoms – without addressing the true root cause of their chronic dis-ease and merely adding to their toxic load!
Detox During Weight Loss
Proper detoxification support is also key when undergoing any weight loss, because many fat-soluble toxins (stored in fatty tissues) get released and need to be dealt with.
Yet weight loss plans oftentimes don’t support the three phases of detox to allow your liver and other organs to metabolize and excrete xenobiotics – and that’s one of the reasons why many people don’t feel any better after a standard juicing plan.
Plus, conventional weight-loss wisdom also doesn’t take your gut health, hormone balance, and sleep patterns into account to achieve optimal results.
Each person has unique health challenges and may be suffering from specific imbalances that might be blocking weight loss. Thus, there is no “one diet fits all” plan.
Finally, genetic factors also plays a role in how “healthy” some foods are for your body. This is why some dieting styles work well for people and not for others. Bio-individually has to be taken into account when using food as medicine!
