The Dangers Of Commercial Detox Kits
We don’t need extreme detoxifying regimes to cleanse our insides. The body does a magnificent job of ridding itself of wastes on its own. Forcing the cleansing process not only puts the body under extreme shock and pressure, it can also cause severe damage – leaving you feeling worse than when you started.
Concoctions of aggressive laxative tea’s and strict diets can have unhealthy side-effects such as:
- No dietary advice to support the program
- No supportive or healing process
- The dramatic change of the internal environment can lead to a severe response, leading to further repercussions of forcing the liver
- Extreme purging and flushing puts the body under extreme pressure
- Loss of vitamins and minerals
- Blood-sugar problems
- Disrupts sodium and potassium levels
- Muscle breakdown

What Is Detoxification?
Detoxification is a process that occurs naturally in the body on a daily basis. Healthy people have their very own detoxification system built in, with specific body systems and organs (lungs, liver, colon, lymphatic system, skin) all work harmoniously together to cleanse the body.
Why Is It Important To Detox?
Unfortunately in today’s toxic modern world our bodies struggle with assimilation and elimination, leaving us with and over-load of toxins that remain inside the body’s tissue – disrupting the internal terrain. If the detoxification pathways become overloaded or fail to function correctly, toxins will begin to accumulate in the body.
Many toxins are fat soluble, this means they will incorporate themselves into certain parts of the body, where they are stored. Fatty organs such as the brain and endocrine (hormonal) glands are common sites for toxins to build up. This may contribute to hormonal disorders including infertility, adrenal exhaustion, and early menopause.
Detoxification provides a gentle aid in assisting the body’s natural ability to eliminate and reduce the toxic load. A good spring clean is great for rejuvenate and revitalising the body, clears the mind, and helps to build a healthy functioning digestive tract.
