The concepts of internal cleansing and detoxification have been around for quite some time. In modern times, as society has increasingly been exposed to toxic compounds in the air, water, and food, it has become apparent that our ability to detoxify substances to which we are exposed is of critical importance in our overall health.
Identifying toxins in the body and natural ways to support the detoxification and elimination of these harmful compounds. Toxic substances are everywhere... in the air we breathe, the food we eat, and the water we drink. Even our bodies and the bacteria in our intestines produce toxic substances.
Toxins can damage the body in an insidious and cumulative way. Once the detoxification system becomes overloaded, toxic metabolites (products of metabolism) accumulate, and we become progressively more sensitive to other chemicals, some of which are not normally toxic. This accumulation of toxins can wreak havoc on our normal metabolic process.
To focus on enhancing detoxification primarily by promoting improved liver function. Our modern environment seriously overloads our liver, resulting in increased levels of circulating toxins in the blood, which damage most of our body's systems. An overburdened liver sends out alarm signals that manifest as psoriasis, acne, chronic headaches, inflammatory and autoimmune disease, and chronic fatigue.
Types of Toxins
You may be asking, "What exactly is a toxin?"
A toxin is defined as any compound that has a detrimental effect on cell function or structure. Obviously, some toxins cause minimal negative effects while others can be fatal. We have organized the discussion of toxins as follows
*Breakdown products of protein metabolism
Including in this category are the following heavy metals: lead, mercury, cadmium, arsenic, nickel, and aluminum. These metals tend to accumulate within the brain, kidneys, and immune system, where they can severely disrupt normal function.
This category of toxins is primarily dealt with by the liver and includes toxic chemicals, drugs alcohol, solvents, formaldehyde, pesticides, herbicides, and food additives. It is staggering to contemplate the tremendous load placed on the liver as it detoxifies the incredible quantity of toxic chemicals it is constantly exposed to.
Toxins produced by bacteria and yeast in the gut can be absorbed, causing significant disruption of body functions. Examples of these types of toxins include toxins from bacteria (endotoxins and exotoxins), toxic amines, toxic derivatives of bile, and various carcinogenic substances.
Breakdown Products Of Protein Metabolism
The kidneys are largely responsible for the elimination of toxic waste products of protein breakdown (ammonia, urea, etc.). Drinking adequate amounts of water and avoiding excessive protein intake can support the kidneys in their important function.
