Should I Do a Liver Detox?
The word “Detox” carries around a lot of negative connotations. People think of it as something you need to do in rehab or behind closed doors, but it’s so much more. In fact, EVERYONE can benefit from a good detox cleanse at least once a year! We are full of toxins from our environment (cleaning products, smog, and pesticides… the list goes on!) Even though the body has natural processes in place to filter out and cleanse itself of these toxins, the sheer magnitude of the toxins we’re exposed to overwhelms these processes and they begin building up in our systems. This build-up results in a TOXIN OVERLOAD that exhausts our body’s ability to filter and expel them.
Our liver takes the brunt of these toxic bombardments because it is the organ responsible for detox (along with 300 other incredible functions that we know of!) Why wouldn’t you want to take care of that magical liver of yours with something as simple and rewarding as a detox cleanse?
It’s so easy to get started.
