Experts worldwide estimate that between 20,000 and 70,000 man-made chemicals are currently used in industry and consumer goods. Alarmingly, little is known about the toxicity and dangers associated with 75 percent of them.
Dr. Frank King, a naturopathic doctor and chiropractor, is very concerned because many of these chemicals accumulate in the body and have a negative effect on our health. Babies are born with hundreds of toxic chemicals in them, many of which are neurotoxic., Dr. King believes the Earth has become a chemical soup experiment and we must detoxify in order to protect our health.
Luckily, there are plenty of free and low-cost strategies that can help you detoxify:
Read labels. Stop putting toxins in and on your body. Check your household cleaning and body care products, make-up, medicine and food for toxic chemicals and unnatural ingredients.
Sweat. The skin is the largest organ of the body and perspiration effectively detoxifies. Be sure to rinse your skin after sweating to avoid reabsorption.
Exercise. Bouncing on a trampoline, running, and engaging in physical activity helps your body move and distribute lymph fluids. This process moves waste products and prevents stagnation (from lack of movement), which causes lymphatic buildup.
Eat healthy. A backed-up digestive tract may cause toxins to recirculate in the bloodstream. When following a detox diet, be sure to get plenty of fiber to encourage healthy, smooth digestion.
Hydrate. Dehydration can lead to sluggish bowels and sluggish lymph. “Soft drinks” are truly hard on your body because they often contain chemicals and caffeine, which can lead to dehydration.
Consider natural methods. Dr. King’s Natural Medicine®, manufactured by Dr. Frank King’s natural products company, King Bio, has created hundreds of natural medicines that address symptoms of toxicity. Homeopathic remedies are a great option for a detox cleanse because they are safe and gentle. Check out Dr. King’s Natural Medicines for Detox.
