Now that summer is in full force, are you feeling Hot, Hot, Hot? Well, along with feeling hot comes lots of sweat, sweat, sweat! Sweat is one of our body’s main mechanisms of detoxification. Detoxification is a method of removing or cleansing harmful toxins out of the body, restoring health and vitality to our organs and tissues. It is a means of total body rejuvenation.
Most commonly when we think of cleansing, we think of fasting from different types of food or perhaps popping the latest “cleansing miracle” pill. In reality, our bodies naturally detox in times of rest. This is why when we go on vacation, so often we come home feeling under the weather…we have had a chance to relax, signaling to the body that it is a good time to release some of the junk inside of us. Hence, we may get a head cold, sore throat, or ear infection as toxins are passing out of us.
There are foods that help speed up the detoxification process. These foods not only work internally, but also are tremendously beneficial when applied externally. Some of these key foods are citrus fruits like lemons, limes, grapefruit, and oranges, and other cleansing fruits such as pineapple, kiwi, cherries, and figs. Dark greens, especially in the form of juice, are especially detoxifying to the liver and kidneys, the main toxin filters in our bodies. It’s often said that a healthy liver equals a healthy body.
Healthful detoxification has lead to many reported health benefits, some of which include:
o Elimination of several allergies
Quick and strong growth of hair and fingernails.
Increased endurance and energy.
Better sense of smell and hearing.
Fresher breath and a decreased body odor.
Greater concentration, memory, and mental focus.
