20 May Is the body capable of detoxing on its own?
Is the body capable of eliminating toxins on its own? Theoretically, yes. Realistically, no.
The lungs, skin, digestive tract, liver, kidneys and lymphatic system are all organs of detoxification. Meaning, they digest, absorb, assimilate and eliminate everything that enters or is created within the body. Although the body is fully equipped with detoxification organs, there are many factors that can inhibit, slow down or completely stop the detoxification process. Factors such as chemical processes, nutritional deficiencies, sluggish metabolism, slow elimination, oxidative stress, free radical damage, sedentary lifestyle and exposure to toxins. Toxins are negative substances that can be found on food we eat, in the cosmetic products that we apply to our skin, the water we drink, the environment we live and work in and even in the clothes we wear. Unfortunately, the body can become stressed, fatigued and burdened with toxins quickly, resulting in toxicity overload.
Signs of toxicity overload:
- brain fog
- skin irritations
- hormonal imbalance
- sugar cravings
- Frequent illness
- irregular appetite
If you’re experiencing any of these symptoms or are exposed to a higher level of toxins on a daily basis, then your body may need support to enhance detoxification.
In our latest podcast episode we sat down with nutritionist, Dana Remedios from Flora Health to talk about why it’s important to take a whole body approach to detoxification rather than targeting one specific organ and how Flora Flor-Essence® herbal tonics can help to reduce the toxin burden on your body. Flor-Essence® is a traditional herbal formula developed to gently cleanse the whole body at the cellular level. Oxidative stress and free radicals can accumulate within your cells over time from an array of environmental stressors. Flor-Essence ® supports your body’s detoxification organs in removing these toxins and provides antioxidants that protect against the oxidative damage caused by free radicals.
