‘Detoxification is one of the more widely used treatments and concepts in alternative medicine. It is based on the principle that illnesses can be caused by the accumulation of toxic substances (toxins) in the body. Eliminating existing toxins and avoiding new toxins are essential parts of the healing process.’
To truly offer your body strength we must think about detoxifying at every single level. The build up of toxic waste creates inflammation in the body. Inflammation equals imbalances and imbalances equal poor health. Big or small. And please don’t be mistaken that poor health only means ‘sickness’. Inflammation can be anything from lower back pain through to hayfever through to cancer. Toxicity, and therefore inflammation, blocks strength in the body, it blocks energy, it blocks true balance and optimum health. This is applies at all levels; mind, body and spirit. Toxicity comes in all shapes and sizes. Food, poor self talk, hygiene products, stress, washing detergents, sedentary lifestyles, perfumes, lack of sleep, plastics, dehydration, clothing, heartache, candles, unclean water, relationships, lack of time spent in nature, the digital age. Oh it goes on and on. In this modern day world the toxicity we’re inadvertently exposed to everyday, as well as what we choose to expose ourselves to, is endless. It’s the things that we have a direct choice about that we must change.
We are, afterall, the thoughts we have, the fuel we absorb and the energy we breathe. And change starts at home.
