Now more than ever, we are exposed to toxins and chemicals that play a major role in the modern day rise in illness and disease. From the air we breathe to the food we eat. From cleaning products to plastic food storage. We are silently surrounded by toxicity, and it is now more than ever that we must support our bodies during detoxification to prevent toxic-overload.
As modern society becomes more aware and steers clear of these toxins present in our everyday lives, it is important to support your body's detox processes just as much as it is to implement a low-tox lifestyle. Detoxing has become almost as trendy as a good wanky coffee (give me a turmeric latte any day!). But what is all the hot goss about detox? How can we optimise our detox processes to feel clean on the inside AND out?!
There are so many ways we can live a low-tox life AND maintain a low-tox bod:
- Organic Bicarb can be taken internally to balance the bodies pH levels, or in a bath soak to support detoxification. It can be used for natural beauty treatments such as: mouthwash, toothpaste and deodorant. It can also be used to cook, wash & clean with, and it even rids pet odours and can be added to many other natural recipes.
- Organise Epsom Salts (magnesium sulfate) not only relieves aches & pain but it a major component in helping detox the body. Epsom salt bathing is one of the most effective ways of absorbing essential minerals like magnesium & sulfates for optimal health and detoxification. It maintains a healthy intestinal tract, assists with healing autism, and improves overall health. Don't forget, magnesium is needed in the body for over 300 reactions to take place (did you know that the consumption of 1 molecule of sugar needs 56 molecules of magnesium for the sugar to be metabolised!? You can see why magnesium deficiency is becoming more common with the consumption of sugar rising).
- Organic Bentonite Clay contributes to the detoxification process by attracting and binding to ‘free radicals’ and other toxins within the body. Free radicals are those cells that have been become mutated cells, and it is these mutated cells that can be the catalyst for disease.
- Organic Activated Charcoal is a powerful detoxifier attracting, adsorbing and removing chemicals, gases, toxins, poisons, drugs and pollutants from the body. 'Free radicals' (remember, mutated cancer causing cells) are also attracted to the surface of the activated charcoal and excreted out of the body.
