An average person is exposed to more than 700,000 toxic chemicals daily. Over time these toxins build up in the body causing an array of health concerns that weaken the immune system, cause hormonal imbalance, and in worst cases cancer!
Detoxing does not always mean a juice cleanse or following a strict detox program. The body actually detoxes all the time naturally. However, we must create an environment to optimize these processes for good health and longevity.
There are 5 detoxification organs:
The liver is one of the main organs that promote detoxification and is responsible for about 500 bodily functions The reason is due to its ability to transform toxins into water-soluble molecules that leave the body through urine, bowels, breathing, and/ or sweating. It also plays a major role in digestion, nutrient absorption, metabolism, and cardiovascular health.
Maintaining a healthy and clean liver is foundational to vitality and vigor. That is why the liver requires a diet high in nutrients, minerals, vitamins, and antioxidants in order to function optimally.
Becoming intentional about reducing your exposure to toxins can actually benefit you in many ways. This includes…

Improve Energy When increasing your intake of nutrient-dense foods, can improve digestion and increase energy levels.
Pain Relief Removing processed foods, gluten, dairy, and sugar from your diet reduces inflammation that is often associated with swelling and pain.
