Detoxification is a common activity carried out by the body 24 hours a day. Depending on what challenges we are giving our body, it is an easy or very difficult cycle of action, often incomplete.

Detoxification may seem to benefit only one portion of the body, yet it achieves marked improvements throughout the entire system. Because the body is a symphony of interconnected ecosystems, one positive change anywhere alters and improves the natural balance of the entire body.

The type and amount of foods we ingest will either keep us healthy or slowly create a toxic environment. Toxicity and many chronic diseases are the result of an accumulation of waste material collected at a site devoid of oxygen, energy and circulation, when the body has been overwhelmed with substances that either do not break down fast enough or do not break down at all.

All toxicity slows down and impedes body functions and metabolism. This condition makes it extremely difficult to lose weight. Body fat absorbs and holds toxins to prevent these poisons from attacking the body. This is the same reason why excess weight is resistant to breaking down as it acts like a toxin collection system.

The hidden key to weight-loss is to remove toxins on a regular basis from  the liver, the kidneys and the colon, following the same basic approach to clearing the body of unwanted elements. Some of the foods that naturally heal and cleanse our body and colon are oranges, lemons, grapefruit, garlic onion, cayenne, tomatoes, bell pepper, cumin, radishes, coconut and most important Рwater.
