DetoxificationThe term detoxification is used to describe the metabolic process where toxins are broken down into less harmful substances so that they can be excreted more easily from the body. The idea of detoxification is likened to spring cleaning the body by a process of removing all anti-nutrients from the diet and making sure that you are getting all of the nutrients the body needs to function and to support it during the detoxifying process.
The most common method of detoxifying is by fasting, abstaining from having any food, in order that the body can take a rest from the process of digestion and concentrate on finding and eliminating toxic matter from the body. Most people report increased levels of energy and a feeling of vitality during and immediately after fasting but not everyone feels good, for some people, especially if the liver isn't functioning properly, symptoms of intoxication can occur. Care should always be taken when undertaking a fasting regime.
