The stresses and strains of a modern day lifestyle can cause an uncomfortable build up of toxins within the body. Combine this with a less than healthy diet and your body will start to show signs of decay from the inside out; you may feel sluggish, stressed, aching muscles, frequent diarrhea, constipation, and weight gain. More often than not the weight gain appears to happen quite rapidly and seems impossible to shift. These are all signs of too many toxins having built up in the body.
Certain organs in your body are designed to deal with cell waste management. They play a vital role in the detoxing process and thus help maintain a fit and healthy body. If you keep these organs well and cleansed, you will naturally detoxify when necessary.
Your Vital Organs.
The Liver. This organ recycles unwanted chemicals. It takes the toxins and places them ready for elimination during circulation. The lymph glands also play an important role in eliminating toxins. A network of tubes directs excess waste cells from the body to the final eliminating organs. The major lymphatic glands that help do this are the appendix, thymus, spleen, and tonsils.
The kidneys play a major role in body water management. They keep blood alkaline by eliminating dissolved acid waste. You can help keep your kidney in the best of shape simply by drinking plenty of water. If you want to see positive results in weight loss it will help to drink mostly water and a half ounce of alkaline juice each and every day.
The lungs are the organs that keep the oxygen in blood purified. They direct oxygen straight to the blood and remove waste gases that are found in cells. Deep Breathing and Fresh Air are crucial in keeping the lungs healthy and free from toxins. If you live in an urban area, try to escape to a more fresh, oxygen rich area to perform some Deep Breathing Exercises.
The colon is also commonly in need of detoxifying in many people. It can be difficult, but having a waste free colon can be the key to having a clean and healthy body. Drink plenty of water and eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables.
If you are suffering with signs of detoxification, perhaps start your detox program by doing some regular walking. Exercise is crucial in having a fit and healthy body. Try also drinking lots of lemon water (recommended by doctors). This has the effect of maintaining good circulation and can also increase the rate of detoxification with the body.
