Foods that detox your body

Natural detox cleanse your body with healthy foods

Here are some foods that detox your body. Detox is also known as cleanse. Cleanse or detox refers to removing toxins from our body.

We add many toxins to the body with our modern day living. There are many reasons for the toxins getting into the body.

These may include smoking, eating junk foods, eating foods with chemicals in them, eating stale food, excessive alcohol consumption, drug abuse, not living in hygienic conditions, pollution etc.

Toxic materials start to enter our body and slowly accumulate in our organs. Digestive organs, respiratory organs get affected because of these toxic materials.

We do not even realize what has happened until we start feeling some discomfort in our body and mind, until we feel unhealthy.

Even at that time we may not pay attention because we are busy with our life. We may not be aware of the reasons for our illhealth.

We are already used to some kind of life style and the thought of making changes to our present life style is not so comfortable.

Sometimes it is possible to reverse the process and remove the toxins from our body. However, we can not be sure that our health will get back to what it was earlier.

Detox systems available now

There are many detox systems, plans are available. You are supposed to follow these detox plans for specific number of days or weeks.

You are advised to cleanse the toxins out of your body once in three months, once a month or once a year, depending on the detox system you are using.

That means first you accumulate the toxins in your body and then remove them at a certain interval. This can cause certain side effects such as headaches, loose motions etc. Does it make sense to you to subject your body to these problems every now and then whenever you do a detox program?
