detoxification processes. We can either help or hinder our system in various ways.
While our primary detoxifying organs are the kidneys and liver, there are times
that they aren't able to remove certain toxins because it's a heavy load. What
doesn't get pushed out gets stored in our fat, so the body now has to find another
way to remove them.
Sweat! Sweating can help remove some of the leftover toxins in our system.
Exercise has so many valuable benefits for our overall health as a whole.
Why Detoxing Matters?
Detox juices, teas, and herbal blends may seem like a trend, and that's ok. Why not
let being healthy shine in the mist?
The environment is toxic! Oh no, not all on its own. The pollutions that we often
cause find their way into and onto our bodies every day. Chemical pollutants are
everywhere, germs, bacteria, fungus, heavy metals, need I say more?
Every so often, we should take some self-care time and amp up our bodies for a
healthy detox. Let it all out! A CDC report, 2009, took an in-depth look into
chemicals we're exposed to daily. More than 200 chemicals? Our urine and blood
showed us that nearly everyone has measurable amounts of BPA and mercury in
Our body fat stores calories and toxins. It is basically our body's dumpster or waste
dump. Yuck, right? Flush it every chance you get. Often, the toxins that sneak into
our fat don't cause too much harm, but health problems begin if there is an
How Sweating Helps You Detoxify Your Body
As I previously mentioned, most of the detoxification process is handled by our
kidneys and liver. Our organs can take much more than we realize, which is a
blessing but scary to think about sometimes.
We have to help our body out when we know or feel like it's struggling to handle
daily life. If we get overloaded with toxins and our organs are too tired or weak, we
should step in and give them a boost. Detox tea, exercises, and waist trainers help
Our pores pass the sweat out of the body, similar to how the toxin passed through
the surface of our skin. Promoting sweat will give the detoxifying organ system a
Using detox tea or supplements can also promote sweating. The frequent urinating
is because the kidneys and liver are working on flushing the system. Going to the
bathroom releases what passes through our built-in filtration system.
It's a good idea to flush your system every few months or so. Doing so will help
keep you feeling healthier. Detoxing our body from everything that shouldn't be
hanging around is beneficial for all aspects of our health, including mental and
emotional. Don't flush or detox too often, as it can deplete your body of what it
needs. Spring clean up works for more than just homes and offices!
