A lot of company, industry, and clinics are using the word “Detoxificiation.” Mostly they claim that their procedures or products have the capacity to provide a detox process that will somehow improve the well-being of the human body. Curiosity, the questionable part is how does the body really apply or even undergo the detoxification process.
So before we begin let us first define the word Detoxification. In my Biochemistry class during med school, we describe detoxification as a chemical process inside the body that makes a toxin less toxic or readily excretable. Meaning this is an activity of the body that keeps us functional optimally and prevents our body from faltering. So it is an innate process in our system! It’s something that cannot be added because we already have it. So why does people sell it and why does people buy it? It’s simply because the capacity of our body to remove toxin is less than the amount that we take in. A supportive detox process is essential. The challenge is knowing which one does work and which one is just selling you a product.
So now that we know that it is already a God given gift to all of us we can now be more aware on what products or procedures will really help us.
The real idea of a true detox process is when the doctor or the treatment helps the body boost out its own detoxification process or provides the body with an extra hand in neutralizing the toxin in our own body. The most common of these are; (I’ll divide them into two categories).
- Process detoxification such examples are meditation, prayer, fasting, liquid hydration either with water alone or lemon with water, quitting vices such as smoking and drinking, distressing by massage or body scrub with chelating agents, sauna, sleeping early, exercise and etc. Basically a process detoxification is something that we usually do on a regular routine that helps the body by slowing down intake or production of toxins. But remember process detoxification works best if you have undergone a Procedure Detoxification.
- Procedure Detoxification is when you undergone a series of slow continuous process of removing toxins supervised by health practitioner or naturopathic specialist in a doctor’s clinic, facilities, medispa or institution that greatly boost up your body’s own detoxification system. Some examples are glutathione and vitamin C injection, chelating agent capsules, enema procedure (although this only works on an intestinal level of detoxification) and Redox Therapy (available at Kutis Filipina Medispa). This type of detox is more systematic and more advance and thus helps neutralize more toxins in a single session.
So why is the detoxification procedure is is vital in our everyday life? Well to plainly explain it, our body is in constant exposure with hazardous substances and or events. Hence, if that is the case then our body is always on a constant battle for survival. It will always try to remove damaging substances and or events. Hence, if that is the case then our body is always on a constant battle for survival. It will always try to remove damaging substances and repair damaged tissues and cells thus trying to go back on an optimal status. Once it reaches this status it will now regenerate much faster and better. Therefore the lesser toxins, infection and damages the body is combating; the more productive it will be in repairing, restoring and regenerating. So I wish you’ll have a more detox life and that you do it on a more regular basis. Because remember the best cure we have is not the drug or the supplements we take in; but instead the greatest defense we have is our own natural detoxifying system.
