What is the detoxification of the body and why is it needed? It is the elimination of toxins from the body. Do you think this problem is not relevant for you? It is possible, but first let's try to understand more about the toxins.
The word “toxin” comes from the Greek “toxikos”, which means “poisonous”. To put it simply, toxins are poisons which accumulate inside us at the cellular level.
Toxins are biologically active substances of plant, animal, microbial or artificial origin, which disrupt the metabolism and worsen the functioning of vital body systems.
How do they end up in our body? The main source is the environment. Poisons penetrate into our body with food, water, from the air and through the skin. The source of toxins can also be intestinal parasites – helminthes, ascarides and the like. Pathogenic bacteria and viruses poison us as well. In fact, the infectious disease is nothing but the poisoning of the body with the products of the vital activity of pathogenic microorganisms. Normally, a healthy body gets rid of accumulated toxins on its own. Natural detoxification is one of the main functions of the liver and kidneys. “Waste” is taken out of cells with blood, which, in turn, is filtered by the liver. A harmful “infiltrate” excreted with urine, sweat and breathing.
The choice of a specific detoxification method depends on many factors – these are the individual characteristics of the body, and specific situations (pregnancy, harmful working conditions), and the severity of the condition.
There are many detoxification methods, for example: diet, exercise, drug detox, physiotherapy. In addition, to clear out the body certain vegetables and fruits, dietary supplements, vitamins and drinks are used.
