Do you ever wonder how many toxins we are exposed to on a daily basis? From the moment we wake up, we start our exposure to toxins. Chemical toiletries, Aluminium deodorants, caffeine-loaded drinks, smoke, pollution, sprayed food, air fresheners, you name it…
The other day I made a list for one of my lectures of all the possible toxins in our daily life. And it was quite depressing. We live in quite a toxic environment.
So how can we all still be alive?
The great news is that our bodies come with an amazing built-in detox machine. If we didn’t have our very own detox system, the human race would be extinct by now.
Our detox system (which comprises mainly of the liver and the intestinal tract) is capable of getting rid of the toxins that we are exposed to on a daily basis.
Problems only occur when our detox system gets overloaded. This can happen when there are more toxins than the body can handle, or when a health problem makes the detox organs less efficient.
Have you ever experienced fatigue, brain fog, headaches, depression, or skin rashes? These could all be signs of toxic overload. In fact, an overload of toxins can even make you gain weight!
In order to get your health back, make sure your detox system is alive. You can jump start it by analysing the toxins in your daily life and eliminating the ones you have direct control over (e.g. don’t use insect spray, or avoid amalgam mercury fillings). You can also help your detox system by eating more vegetables and salads for a few days, and having a massage and sauna to release existing toxins.
If you feel that you cannot do it on your own, or that your toxins have been giving you lots of health problems and you need a professional detox, come join us on a once-in-a-lifetime detox retreat at the end of April in the beautiful Turkish coast.
I will take a very small group for an intimate week of health and rejuvenation. Only a few days left before registration closes.
