Spring Clean Yourself
An Intro to Detox
Spring. It’s all about new beginnings. New life. Fresh starts. It’s time to open the windows and air out the house. Time for a good, deep cleaning.
This year, why not give yourself a fresh start, too? What’s this about? The word of the day is “detox.”
Short for “detoxification,” DETOX has become a buzzword of sorts. You’ll see it on magazine covers. You’ll hear about it on TV and probably even from some of your friends. People talking about “cleansing,” or “doing a cleanse.” Cleansing is just another word for detox.
So what’s this all about?
First, there’s the fact that we live in a world saturated with bad stuff. [See “Toxic Soup” box.] In the air we breathe. In the food we eat. In all those lotions, creams, soaps, powders, and sprays we use to make ourselves look pretty and smell good. And they build up. They accumulate.
Next, we recognize that, over time, all this bad stuff becomes more than we can handle. While our bodies are uniquely designed to be resilient, our ability to poison ourselves and our environment has outpaced that resilience.
That’s where detox comes in. Detox helps your body rid itself of all that accumulated bad stuff.
But be careful! Sometimes, when you start detoxing you can get into trouble. That’s why it should only be done under the guidance of a physician specifically trained to walk you through the process. Are your liver and kidneys ready for detox? Do you have diabetes? Heart disease? What about side effects? If you’re going to detox, detox safely.
