Recurrent diseases and chronic diseases such as joint pain and arthritis are often the cause of toxic overload in the body. Excessive dependence on junk and processed foods, contamination, and food additives increases the level of toxins in the body and hinders the functions of the organs that lead to aches, pains, fever, and fatigue by decreasing the body’s defense mechanism. Detoxification can be done by drinking lots of water, floating, and making changes in the diet. But one of the best and most lasting forms of detoxification is to think about points of acupressure and reflexology. The benefits of reflexology are innumerable and help to expel toxins from the body by stimulating the flow through the important organs involved in detoxification: the liver, kidney, colon, lungs, and skin.
WHY IS IMPORTANT THE DETOXIFICATION?
Some of the most important reasons to detox are as follows:
Pollution in cities, chemical products in food, pesticides, and elements that are stored in our system and that affect the immune system and produce very serious diseases such as cancer, body aches, arthritis, etc … It is essential to have plans for depuration and eliminate toxins from the body.
Renew our immune system
Regular detoxification of organs such as the lungs, liver, kidneys, colon and skin helps to improve the functions of the immune system so that the body can fight the bacteria and viruses that cause infections, colds, flu and fever.
Having many toxins in the body reduces our body’s ability to metabolize body fat and balance blood glucose, leading to slower metabolism and weight gain, heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and many other chronic diseases.
Prevention of Chronic Diseases
One of the main causes of various types of cancer, heart disease and stroke, asthma, acute bronchitis, etc. is the accumulation of toxins in the body. The detoxification of the body helps reduce the risk of these chronic diseases.
Improving Mental Clarity
The improvement of mental and emotional clarity is achieved when the body consumes less amount of energy that steals diseases and pains. This reduction in energy helps to decide more wisely and increases mental power.
