Detoxing Naturally

Cleansing nutrients that can help you feel refreshed and renewed

October 2009

Detoxification, cleansing routines designed to reduce the body’s toxic load, has long played an important role in traditional healing. People undertake a detox protocol for any number of reasons, from improving overall well-being to dealing with specific complaints, such as fatigue. Detoxification has also been seen as a good way to jump-start a weight loss program. According to Brenda Watson, CNC, author of The Detox Strategy (Free Press), toxins can hinder “your ability to achieve an ideal weight in three big ways: Slowing down your metabolism, decreasing your ability to burn fat and slowing down the time it takes for you to feel full.”

One reason to detoxify lies in the polluted nature of our environment. As Watson notes, “Myriad products we use daily can harbor toxic substances that our bodies absorb little by little over time,” such as pesticide residues and industrial chemicals found in everyday items. Add the toxic effects of stress and poor diet, and it’s no wonder detoxification is such a popular option.
