Removing Toxins From Your Body

Modern chemicals expose us to harmful toxins every day. Thankfully, we now understand how to detox and remove toxins. Through food, water, skin, and the air we breathe, we absorb toxins. Usually, the body removes them easily. Over time, toxins build up. They become harder to get out of the body.

Some toxins are durable, or persistent. Consequently, they accumulate in our tissues rather than being released through normal methods. Even small amounts tend to build up in our food supply. Detoxing and cleansing the body is as important as addressing nutritional issues. Subsequently, there are seven systems in your body for eliminating harmful toxins: your skin, lung, colon, liver, kidney, and bloodstream. The liver, kidneys, and colon build up toxins. Natural filtering happens in these organs.
