Detoxification For Your Body "Wellness"

Sep 4, 2008
The term "wellness' has often been understood as the absence of illness or disease. However, many people fail to realize that like illness, there are many degrees of wellness. A person who is healthy may still be bored, depressed, tense, anxious or simply unhappy with their lives. Hence, wellness is not a static state and does not automatically mean that a person is only healthy. In general, wellness encompasses good physical health and the feeling of happiness and satisfaction. In wellness, the efficient and smooth flow of energy is important to your mind, body and spirit.

Your emotional wellness (emotional state) can influence your physical wellness (physical health) and vice versa. A person in an unhealthy resistance and is more vulnerable to development of illness or physical disease. The negative feelings can also lead to the development of unhealthy habits such as smoking, excessive alcohol consumption and drug abuse. Both your emotional and physical condition inevitable determines how you feel, if your appetite is good and the actions that you would undertake for the day. This can be attributed to a well balanced and smooth flow of energy in your body, giving you that "fell good" feeling. However, when there is interference to the flow, you may feel empty, confused, pressured or even suppressed and that can result in illness or disease.

Everyday, whether we eat work or play, we are exposed to many types of toxins and contamination from various sources that can affect our health. It is not uncommon to be exposed to toxins or contamination in our food, water and environment in our routine activities daily.

The meat and vegetables that we eat contain toxins such as antibiotics. The processed and packaged foods we eat in increasing amounts contain artificial flavors, colors, chemical preservatives and unsaturated fats, the substances that our body cannot use increase. Caffeine in soft drinks and coffee can affect the body's digestion. For those of us with unhealthy habits, there are also toxins in perfume, alcohol and cigarette smoke. People who are exposed to industrial chemicals, agricultural pesticides, radiation treatment (eg chemotherapy), irradiation and prescription drugs with side effects routinely acquire toxins.

Detoxification is a natural and ongoing process of neutralization and elimination of toxins or contamination from your body. Though most of us may not notice, there is some detoxification happening all the time in our body that is necessary to maintain life and for health. Detoxification promotes the excretion of toxins stored in your lungs, liver, kidney, bowels and blood circulation.

The liver is the primary organ that detoxifies toxins by filtering toxins and contaminants from the blood and breaking it down into smaller compounds that can be excreted by other eliminating organs. The kidney filters toxins from the blood into urine and the lung removes any gaseous wastes through exhalation. The bowel remove most solid wastes and bacteria toxins from your bowel. Therefore, it is important that these organs are always working properly.

If not eliminated properly and the toxins accumulate in the eliminating organs, it will prevent the organs from functioning properly. This can cause hormonal imbalance, nutritional deficiency and slowing of metabolism. Excess toxins that are not broken down and eliminated are reabsorbed into the blood circulation where it interferes with nutrient absorption and is the precursor for bacteria, viruses and parasites to multiply.

Although many expert have said that detoxification is a natural process and our bodies do not help, it is also true that we now consume and are exposed to a far greater amount of toxins through food, water, and environment compared with one or two generations ago. Without any help, these new new surplus toxins will accumulate in our organs gradually and interfere with organs functions. When this occurs, the flow of energy in your body will be interrupted and that can effect your emotional or physical wellness.
