Neutralizing toxins is very important because it plays a major role in preventing those many cancers in which oncogenes come from the environment (pollutants, food, smoke, etc.).
With the same exposure to toxins the risk is greater for those people who present an incomplete detoxification. Eating healthy and setting our lives in an environmentally friendly way will undoubtedly help reduce many risks.
However, this may not be sufficient because the toxic sources are not only outside us but also in our interior and for this reason liver detoxification and all excretory organs must proceed in the best way.
But what are the natural ways to allow the body to purify and balance?
Natural remedies for purifying the body
There are many solutions available in Naturopathy. Milk thistle is a specific antioxidant of the liver; the dandelion, artichoke and rosemary are another example indicated for real liver drainage, they increase the secretion and flow of bile, which has the task of removing the toxins that the liver has already neutralized.
The treatment of the intestine is also of great importance, because the dysbiotic bacterial flora transforms many toxins present in the intestinal tract, increasing its harmfulness, as well as being itself a producer of toxins.
How to understand if our body needs help?
There is a good chance that the body's physiological detoxification needs to be helped when the following actions occur:
- exposure to environmental toxins (pollution, smoke, chemical solvents);
- use of drugs (especially birth control pills and antibiotics);
- insufficient intake of vitamins and minerals with food;
- alcohol and drug intake;
- poor intestinal function, dysbiosis;
- skin problems (eczema and hives, acne, psoriasis, itching without specific cause);
- frequent headaches;
- constant tiredness;
- food intolerance;
- slow digestion;
- lack of appetite upon awakening;
- drowsiness after meals;
- difficulty concentrating.
In any case, every change of season favors the expulsion of toxins accumulated during the winter period and therefore acting accordingly to improve detoxification in a natural way safeguards the state of balance and therefore of health.
