Detoxification, quite literally, is the physiological process of the body as it transforms and removes “products.”
Products, or toxins, as we’ll refer to them, enter our bodies several ways; ingestion (eat/drink), inhalation (inhale/breathe), and absorption (through skin). Environmentally toxic sources include air, food, water, medicines, product, as well as products produced by our physiological functions; digestion, tissue regeneration, energy metabolism, and “end products from the metabolism of hormones, bacterial by-products and other complex molecules.”
The process of transforming all toxins into a form suitable for elimination is called biotransformation. The process of detoxification is very complex and occurs in several steps.
The first phase of detoxification requires the body to process the toxic material into non-toxic metabolites. Once the non-toxic metabolites are water soluble, the body goes into phase two of detoxification in which the organs are able to eliminate the products.
Although the liver is the primary organ involved with detoxification, the kidneys, lungs, intestines and skin also take part in the process.
This detoxification process sounds simple, but our bodies are wildly complex. Supporting the body with good nutrition while it performs these biological functions is fundamentally important.
Optimal health requires balance. If we could only glimpse beneath our skin and watch the body innately perform, we would be much more concerned with how we treat our bodies.
Gut and intestine issues, headaches, migraines, inflammation, weight issues, unclear thinking, poor sleep, and so many other symptoms are strong indicators that it may be time for you to consider supporting your body better.
