A body that’s healthy, nourished and functioning optimally, naturally detoxifies all the time. Although many organs and every cell are involved, your liver is the major contributor. In your liver, detoxification happens in two phases via a variety of pathways. Like most bodily functions, nutrients are required for these processes to occur.
Today, toxins are everywhere and our bodies are overburdened with the volume of substances we need to detoxify. It’s really sad and depressing to think about too much. My approach is to do the best I can to avoid toxins, make sure I’m eating plenty of foods that support detoxification and not worry or stress about what I can’t control.
Here’s a few things you can do to avoid toxins and support your body’s natural detoxification processes...
