What is a detox?
The term "detox" comes from the English language and means something like detoxification or purification. The goal of a detox is to eliminate suspected toxins and other harmful metabolites from our bodies. How do these toxins get into our bodies? Various influences such as an unhealthy diet, stress or excessive consumption of nicotine or alcohol can cause a large number of toxins to accumulate in our body. Every body reacts very differently to the accumulation of such toxins. Therefore, it is difficult to pinpoint specific symptoms of toxin accumulation.
When should you do a detox?
There are several reasons why you can, or even should, go on a detox. The detoxification organs, including the liver, kidneys, intestines and skin, take on the vital function of keeping our body free of harmful substances. Toxic substances such as pesticides or heavy metal residues can be stored in our body. With a detox cure, you try to dissolve pollutants stored in body fat, bones or tissue and transport them out of the body.
Basically, our body rids itself of most toxins on its own. However, when there are too many toxins in our system, it can become overloaded. So the idea behind Detox is to support our body and its self-regulation processes. By reducing toxins in your own body, it should get going again. Although detoxification is not absolutely necessary from a scientific point of view, it can be helpful to listen to your own body better and to make your own lifestyle better and healthier than before.
