No doubt, YOU TOO have heard of the phenomena termed DETOX or DETOXIFICATION, the cleansing of harmful toxins from the body, or also commonly known as flushing your system. Detoxification is one of the more widely used treatments and concepts in alternative medicine. It is based on the principle that illnesses can be caused by the accumulation of toxic substances (toxins) in the body. Eliminating existing toxins and avoiding new toxins are essential parts of the healing process.
Detoxification utilizes a variety of tests and techniques. Detoxification methods of healing have been used for thousands of years. Fasting is one of the oldest therapeutic practices in medicine. Hippocrates, the ancient Greek known as the “Father of Western medicine,” recommended fasting as a means for improving health. Ayurvedic medicine, a traditional healing system that has developed over thousands of years, utilizes detoxification methods to treat many chronic conditions and to prevent illness.
These types of natural processes and functions of cleaning, clearing and cleansing, getting rid of waste and toxins from the body, are typically handled by organs like the liver, lower gastrointestinal tract and kidneys. Recently however, it has been suggested by practitioners and advocate alike that these processes are beneficial for health, well-being and even longevity. They argue that they can be mastered and learned, as well as achieved by balanced living, intervention-type practices and techniques.
