Author : Dr. Gurnam Saini  

Posted On : 25 February, 2014

Toxins are all around us; its present in almost in everything we eat, touch or breathe. Being exposed to so many toxins on a daily basis, it is only natural that they find their way into our bodies. To remove these toxins from the body, one needs to go for body detoxification. Detoxification is something which has been practiced by Ayurveda and Chinese medicine systems for years now. The process of Detoxification includes resting, cleaning and nourishing the body completely to ensure an effective release of all the accumulated toxins. 


Need To Remove Toxins 

With the accumulation of toxins in the body, liver starts getting overworked and does not perform normally. This further makes one become sluggish. Those having the following symptoms are recommended detoxification. 

  • Allergies
  • Unexplained fatigue
  • Mental confusion
  • Irritated skin
  • Puffy bags under the eyes
  • Extreme stress
  • Frequent headaches
  • Troubled sleep


How Detoxification Treatment Works?

In this polluted world, we are subjected to toxins every day. To stay healthy, we need to get rid of these toxins. Those having digestive problems, sinus problems or extreme stress are more likely to get affected by toxins. Detoxification basically means cleaning the blood. The body eliminates toxins through the kidneys, lungs, lymphs, intestines and skin. A detox program works to help in the natural cleaning process of the body by: 

  • Making the organs rest through fasting
  • Stimulating the liver to remove toxins from the body
  • Promoting removal of toxins through the kidneys, skin and intestines
  • Improving the circulation of blood
  • Refueling the body with healthy nutrients


Detox Programs

A number of detoxification programs are available depending on different individual needs. Most of the programs follow a 7 day schedule. Some of the most effective detox programs are:

  • Fruit Detox: This program includes eating a variety of different fruits for a period of 7 days. This program helps in increasing energy levels and managing weight.
  • Liquid Fast: This program includes consuming liquids like water, tea, fruit juices, vegetable juices and protein shake. This treatment typically stretches for a period of 3 to 5 days. 
  • Fruit and Veggie Detox: Our body needs fruits and vegetables that contain nutrients, vitamins and minerals. The program includes having only fruits and vegetables for a period of 7 days.


Ways To Detoxify The Body


  • Switch to foods and products that do not contain harmful chemicals and additives. 
  • Reduce your intake of alcohol, saturated fats, caffeine and refined sugar.
  • Drink filtered water and green tea. 
  • Do regular exercise and eliminate toxins through perspiration. 
  • Eat a lot of fiber including organic fruits and vegetables and brown rice. 
  • Include herbs in your daily vitamin and nutrient routine. Dandelion root, burdock and milk thistle are excellent detoxifying food. 
  • Head to a sauna to eliminate the waste in your body through perspiration. 
  • Consume supplements rich in vitamin C. Some of them are extremely effective in removing toxins from the body.
  • Avoid using chemical cleaning products at home; replace them with natural cleaning products like baking soda, vinegar and other oils.
