Why do we need to Detox?

Every day, our body is bombarded with chemicals, pesticides, hormones and other pollutants from our surrounding environment and the foods we eat.  Under ideal circumstances the body is able to detoxify and eliminate many of these toxic substances safely through perspiration, urination, respiration and bowel elimination.  Unfortunately, we no longer live in a natural world, and people today are taking in more toxins than the body was designed to process.  Under these conditions, detoxification may be unable to occur at the same rate as toxins are introduced, resulting in a host of health concerns.  We need to give our bodies a break.  This is why a detox is helpful - it gives the organs of elimination a break (and some support) to help restore your body’s natural ability to detoxify.
