Home Body-Detox Programs

From birth up to the present, your body has accumulated a build up of many toxins (often called your "toxic load"). Some of the chemicals from all the foods and beverages that you've taken in your entire lifetime will build up because the body can't handle the detoxification process alone, due to the sheer amount of toxins we are now all exposed to.

(Unhealthy meaning you are doing things which are somewhat harmful to your body. A typical example is cigarette smoking and drinking alcohol. Cigarettes and alcohol have many harmful chemicals that are considered toxins once they entered a person's body.)

Through a good detox program, you can expect to gain higher energy levels, relieve symptoms of asthma/diabetes, and slow down your aging process, as well as other desirable effects. The detox program can also aid your body's natural detox process. Since almost everyone has some sort of 'bad' eating habit, not to mention their 'other' unhealthy ways of life, the body can't cope with all the toxins that need to be removed, which causes an imbalance in the body.

Detox programs can be easily done at home. There are a number of home body-detox programs available, lasting anywhere from 5 days to 2 weeks or more. These programs are focused in helping you lose weight, enhance circulation, increase body elimination, colon cleansing, detox diet, and provide nutrients for the liver. If you still don’t know yet, the liver is the main organ of the body which is responsible for the detoxification process. So you really need to protect and support this body organ.

Some people who have undergone this type of home body-detox program say that they were able to lose weight much more quickly than other weight-loss products. Aside from that, they noticed that they now have clearer skin, improved digestion, improved energy, normal bowel movements, etc.

Fresh vegetables and fruits are great for almost any weight loss program, most especially with a home detox. You can eat broccoli, onions, and sprouts, green and red veggies, fruits, and more (you should really try if at all possible to eat ONLY organic foods during your detox program, to avoid introducing new toxins into your body through your food).

Virgin oils, lemon water, rice milk, and non-caffeinated, unsweetened drinks (like tea) are also good for a home detox program. Drinking at least eight glasses of water everyday is also advisable.

A good home body-detox program will help a person restore his/her body's balance, and efficiently removes many toxin build ups. Keep in mind that this doesn’t mean that you will no longer have toxins in your system. If you continue with your unhealthy lifestyle, over time you will again build up toxins in your body.

Start by slowly changing your lifestyle now. There are many resources which you can make use to aid you in changing little by little. This might take a long time, but your body will thank you for your efforts to adapt a healthier way of life.
