Detoxification is a body’s normal process of eliminating toxins and other harmful agents we are exposed to through our food, environment and medications. We eliminate these via the functions of our skin, kidneys, liver, colon and lymphatic system. But often our bodies get overwhelmed by these harmful agents and the only option is to store them in fat cells.
There are many ways to detox. Dr. Sands recommends ionic detox, a procedure performed in the office using a foot bath and device called an array that separates the water into hydrogen and base particles which allows toxins to be released through the pores of the feet supporting the detoxification of interstitial fluids bathing the body's organs. Unfortunately, insurances do not cover this procedure.
If you prefer to detox daily we recommend considering Advaclear by Metagenics.
People forget that all cells including fat cells perform a specific function. When our lymphatic system gets overwhelmed fluid can accumulate around our cells rendering them less metabolically active, triggering inflammation which is the basis for many chronic health conditions.
Of course one of the tenets of weight loss is to burn more calories than you consume. But this can be difficult if your cells, including fat cells, are metabolically less active. Detox can help your body regain balance, eliminate these stored toxins and improve your efforts to lose weight.
