Is a Body Detox Right For Me?

A good body detox can do more than make your eyes sparkle and your skin glow – it can boost energy levels, improve digestion and help shed a few unwanted pounds. The purpose of any detox plan is to take the load off the organs that detoxify the body – the liver, kidneys and bowels – while at the same time supporting and improving their performance. A detox is a serious endeavor and should not be undertaken lightly, do your research and consult a physician before you begin. Done properly, there are many benefits to a good detox; here are a few:


A good, thorough body detox benefits both the physical body and the mind as well. A sense of equilibrium-of-the-mind is achieved when you feel that your body is cleansed of toxins and your body generally feels more pure.


One of the major benefits of a body detox is the positive affects it has on the aging process. By getting rid of the toxins and "junks" in the body, you are actually reducing the workload of the natural detoxification system of the body. During a detox diet, you are helping the system to get rid of toxins and at the same time, you are significantly reducing the intake of toxin into your body. Reduced stress on the body's detoxification system will lengthen the life span of organs such as the liver, kidneys and bowels. This will add years to your life and at the same time, enable you to enjoy a healthier and fuller life.


We already know for a fact that the natural cleaning process done by our body takes up a lot of energy, so by freeing or reducing the workload of the body's natural detoxification system, we use less energy, freeing up more energy for other daily activities. More energy leads to more physical activity which is why we often feel the need for a massage. It's important for people with an active lifestyle to receive regular massage treatments, the benefits of which we explored in a previous blog.


A body detox will leave our body cleansed and free of toxins. This will significantly reduce the workload of the body and freeing it to focus other more important tasks such as fighting chronic degenerative diseases, repairing and restoring our body. Significant physical benefits that will be gained through body detoxification:

  • Fewer Allergies
  • Stronger Immunity
  • Fewer Aches & Pains
  • Naturally Healthier Skin & Hair
