The importance of detoxification for overall wellness
At its most basic, staying healthy is simple: give the body what it needs and don’t let it have what it doesn’t need. Failing that, life has a way of happening and we are exposed to harmful substances that may not be eliminated quickly or efficiently enough. Removing impurities that build up in the body-safely, naturally and effectively-can give us a boost in renewed vitality.
Types of Detoxification
There are many types of detoxifications we can offer our bodies. It can range from detoxifying specific organs to detoxifying every cell in your body. All are important dependent on what you need. We focus a lot on heavy metal detoxification, considering many to most people have or used to have silver fillings which contains mercury. Mercury is the second most toxic element on the planet. It is so poisonous that no amount of mercury absorption is safe – any amount is harmful to the cells and tissues of the human body. A common example of this is called chelation therapy.
Chelation therapy is recommended to remove heavy metals from the blood stream. There are multiple ways this can be done and it can change dependent on the severity of mercury poisoning the person is experiencing. Preventatively, certain herbs and minerals can be taken to help remove metals from the blood for those less severe.
