If you are suffering from fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive problems or do not feel quite right, a detox may be a useful tool to help you balance your body and mind.Detoxification is a normal, everyday process of eliminating or neutralizing harmful toxins through the liver, colon, lungs, kidneys, lymph glands, and skin. There are also environmental toxins of modern-day life, that accumulate and affect all bodily systems, and have been linked to the development of certain disorders and diseases. If you are suffering from fatigue, fibromyalgia, digestive problems or do not feel quite right, a detox may be a useful tool to help you balance your body and mind. Detoxing often incorporates an elimination diet, which is a eating program designed to identify foods that you should not consume without adverse side effects. An elimination diet can also calm inflammation and "reset" your system. When you have successfully reset your system, and the symptoms diminish, it becomes noticeable to a person when a "problem" food is eaten and symptoms return.The diet usually results in weight loss, but more importantly it promotes healing at the cellular level. Nutrition expert, Dr. Joe Scovell suggests strategies to support a healthy detoxification.
