Go for a Daily Herbal Detox with Detox Care

Detox your body naturally

Why do you need a Detox?

A few decades back, everyone ate organic food, drank water free of plastic nanoparticles, and breathed unpolluted air. But that pristine life is a dream today. We have to buy purity which was naturally available back then.

Apart from the environmental decline, there has been a radical fall in dietary and lifestyle habits in general. With the crumbling family system, junk food replaced cooking at home in most of the developed countries. The developing countries are also being pushed in the same direction.

This change to unhealthy diet and lifestyle habits led to skyrocketing numbers of people afflicted with lifestyle disorders like diabetes, hypertension, hormonal imbalance, obesity, etc.

The Corona Evidence

Coronavirus pandemic has highlighted the importance of individual immunity. Most of the people, who got serious corona infarction, were the ones with compromised immunity, whereas some people did not develop any disease symptoms even after being infected. That's the magic of immunity. Today, with the advent of drug-resistant pathogens, individual immunity to resist infection is the only way to a healthy and long life.

Not only the lifestyle or the communicable disorders, autoimmune disorders, and cancers also have a deep connection with our diet and lifestyle. According to multiple scientific studies, people with smoking or drinking habits are more susceptible to throat and liver cancer.

Obesity and heavy sugar intake can seriously aggravate all kinds of inflammatory autoimmune conditions. Besides, heavy sugar concentration in the blood feeds the cancer cells, not the healthy ones. Therefore, to prevent lifestyle disorders, chronic inflammation, and autoimmune problems and to develop an invincible immunity, we must correct our diet and lifestyle and detox our bodies. And the food is the first and the most fundamental for of detox.


The Natural Detox

We are what we eat. The body is made from food. If the food can make the body unhealthy; naturally, healthy food can also help us to detox and deep cleanse the body.

According to ancient health wisdom, our food is medicine. If we don't have healthy food, then even the medicines might not be able to help us. Our body is such a beautiful, dynamic and self-sustained system that it can heal itself if we stop practicing unhealthy habits. And the most important step is to change the food that we eat.

Steps for a natural detox

Stop eating junk food

Avoidance of junk food is the first step towards complete internal detoxification. Junk food or any kind of packaged food is the most horrible cocktail of chemicals. It contains a variety of chemicals like preservatives, artificial colors, artificial flavors, taste enhancers, and so on. All these chemicals have no nutritional roles in our bodies. But they can cause serious metabolic disturbances in the long run.

Besides, many of these products contain a huge amount of sugar, saturated fats, and refined flour, a perfect recipe for all kinds of digestive disorders. Digestion is the core of our metabolism. Once it goes down, all other systems go down with it.

Also, sugar and saturated fats combine to promote obesity, high cholesterol (hyperlipidemia), thickening of the blood vessel walls (atherosclerosis), hypertension, diabetes, and so on. This food feeds diseases, not the body. Therefore, rightfully a flawless body detox starts with removing this fundamental cause for diseases.

Go for Organic

You may choose to eat healthily cooked homemade food, with low oil and no unhealthy spices. But the poison has reached our home-cooked meals too. Today, there is a huge amount of chemicals present in food grains, vegetables, and fruits as well.

Pesticides that we used for other organisms are pestering our health now. According to WHO data, 1000 different types of pesticides are used to protect the crops. However, these crops cannot protect our health. Different varieties of pesticides, like insecticides, weedicides, etc. can produce severe toxicity in our bodies. These chemicals can retard immunity, damage the human nervous and reproduction system, and even produce cancers. Today more than 65% of cancers are attributed to the use of pesticides present in the food.

Therefore, even if you are not smoking, drinking, or working in a coal mine, you may get lung cancer, thanks to the tremendous amount of carcinogenic pesticides present in the food.

But there is hope - organic food! According to Govt. regulations, food grown without the use of artificial pesticides, chemical fertilizers, etc., on a soil free from the use of pesticides for at least 10 years is certified as organic and fit for human consumption.

Organic food is widely available now. It may be a little more expensive but it will compensate for your future medical bills and horrible diseases. It contains the true, unspoiled nutrition that can help our bodies heal. Therefore, consuming organic food is the second indispensable step towards a systematic detox.

Avoid the Genetically Modified

You are not eating any junk food and organic food is the only thing on your plate. But that's not all. Organic food may be free from pesticides and other chemicals. However, what if your food is not food, but a food-like substance, Surprising? Your apple or rice may look nutritious, but it may not contain the nutrition of the original species. Unfortunately, most of the crops are genetically modified for a better harvest, pests, and climate resistance. This genetically modified food also comes with an altered metabolic impact.

An abnormally high rate of autoimmune disorders, reproduction disorders, and cancer In recent decades is linked to the heavy usage of genetically modified food. Genetically modified food became commercially available on a large scale in the early 1980s. Since then there have been high incidences of inflammatory autoimmune disorders like IBS, Crohn’s disease, rheumatoid arthritis, and lifestyle disorders like diabetes and obesity. Hormonal imbalance and related disorders like hyperthyroidism, PCOD have become household names. Autism has grown more than 30% in just 20 years in the US - a heavy user of genetically modified food!

That's why, as the next indispensable step to complete detox, you must avoid all genetically modified food. Fortunately, it is easy as most of the organic food available in the market is also Non-GM or sourced from genetically original species.

Natural ways to detox

You are far far away from junk food and eating all-good non-GMO, organic food. That's great! but what about the toxics that you have already ingested. The current human population is been subjected to heavy use of chemicals, gm food, pollution, and many health disturbing factors for more than two decades. Besides, you cannot escape the pollutants present in the air, unless you are staying in a village! That's why there is an urgent need to detox the body daily.

Let's look at some of the natural ways to effectively detox our bodies.

Intermittent Fasting

Intermittent fasting is one of the cheapest and most effective methods to detox. Besides, it helps to prevent obesity, balances hormones, prevents diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune disorders, delays aging and also brings a calming effect to the mind.

According to the noble prize winner Japanese cell biologist Yoshinori Ohsumi, intermittent fasting for more than 12 hours can even kill the cancer cells in the body! Therefore, you can upgrade your detox regime with once a week fasting.
