What is a Toxin?
A Toxin is a poisonous substance that is capable of causing disease when introduced into the body tissue, which can disrupt the normal and healthy functioning of the body and its systems.
What is Detoxification?
Detoxification is the natural process of removing toxic substances safely and efficiently
from the human body, leading to improved health and vitality.
Why Should we Detox?
The body has its own natural detox systems that cleanse the body of toxins, so that should take care of everything.
Not so fast.
Under normal circumstances, when all the body’s systems are working, they will eliminate toxins through the liver and kidneys, and also through the skin, breath, hair, nails, and tongue to mention a few of the better-known pathways.
However, there is nothing normal about the way we are currently living our lives.
The Body Stores Toxins
Many toxins are invisible and most of us are happily unaware of our constant exposure to them. We are ingesting many toxic chemicals, pesticides, and heavy metals daily. They are present in our environment, our food, our water and the air we breathe.
Unfortunately, these toxins can accumulate in the body and may contribute to our poor physical and mental health.
If you have any doubt as to the truth of this take a look at these reports from:
The Centre for Disease Control & Prevention:
- Executive Summary – Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals
- National Report on Human Exposure to Environmental Chemicals
The World Health organisation have also published a report on our exposure to toxic chemicals:
World Health Organisation Report on Exposure to Toxic Chemicals (2012)
Toxic Overload Reduces Your Ability to Detoxify
A toxic overload can disrupt many of the body’s systems, including the detox pathways. This means that the body may not detoxify very well.
We Do Not Move – Sedentary Lifestyle
During our lives today we sit around a lot; while we eat, commute, watch TV, work at a computer, and go to the Theatre/Cinema.
Even if we exercise every day for an hour, research is showing that this is just not sufficient to offset the big chunk of our day that we spend sitting down.
Simply put this immobility results in poor circulation which can lead to poor elimination and the bodily accumulation of toxins and metabolic waste.
Current research is indicating that sitting is a serious health hazard and may increase our risk of disease & shorten our lifespan.
This is not great news, after all we are sitting around alot.
The fact that we are not moving so much can result in poor circulation.
When we stop moving, toxins and metabolic wastes tends to accumulate in the body, causing a myriad of issues including toxic stress, and metabolic disruption – fatigue, poor digestion, pain and more.
Ultimately we need good circulation for our organs to work properly, and to flush out toxins and metabolic waste successfully on a daily basis.
Poor Liver Function
In so many of our clients something that we see time and time again is poor liver function. Ironically when the body is overburdened with toxins, the liver often is overwhelmed and not functioning well.
Hence it cannot really cope and the toxic load accumulates even faster, at the very time when you really need it to be performing as well as possible.
One of the first things that needs to happen is we need to improve liver function and one way to really help the liver is to increase the blood supply to this vital organ helping you eliminate toxins, when you most need it to.
The effects of both local, and full body Far Infrared Thermal therapy can be most beneficial for helping improve circulation throughout the body.
A common characteristic of toxic stress is that a variety of nutritional deficiencies tend to show up during testing. This can range from vitamin and mineral deficiencies, and often will include a number of hormone imbalances as well.
Many of the nutrients that are lacking have been depleted over time due to the ongoing stresses that the body has been exposed to, often over a period of many years.
For a health problem to manifest itself, you can be sure that most conditions have been in the making for many years.
It is very helpful to address these deficiencies to help restore functioning of the body’s natural detox pathways. These require certain nutrients to function properly. It is so common to see very low levels of magnesium which is vital for detox.
We are exposed to a variety of manmade chemicals and Toxins daily. It is impossible to avoid exposure and ingestion.
However what you can do is take care of the body and mange the situation with regular detoxification as a part of your lifestyle.
The fact is that 21st Century living now requires this, certainly if you want to get well and stay well.
Detoxify and Stay Healthy
For most of us good health is a random affair, and our health usually becomes a consideration when it goes wrong.
However do we approach our cars like this?
No, we take care of them and service them regularly. Why not adopt such an approach with our body? Detoxify regularly and take care of the body car.
Detoxify to Restore Health
So at this stage we need to detoxify; this means improving the function of your body’s own detoxification systems. This is done by reducing the amount of toxins we put into our bodies while at the same time supporting our body’s detoxification and elimination systems with the nutrients it needs to function properly.
Everybody’s capacity to detoxify is quite different and each Get Fitt Far Infrared programme is personalised accordingly. Get Fitt Support is the ideal way to ensure that your programme is perfect for you.
