Detox herbs for effective internal and external cleansing

In pursuit of progress we have inadvertently dealt a death blow to our health. Experts are now wondering whether the progress has been worth the health hazards that it has brought along with itself.

The consequences of progress have been less time, dependence on comforts, desire for material possessions and the like. These in turn have ensured that almost all of us get caught in the rat race to earn more and ensure better physical comforts for ourselves. But what we have forgotten is that while in this rat race, we are ignoring the one gift that we have all been provided – our bodies. And the first thing that we compromise on is the quality of food that we eat and the amount of effort we are willing to put behind arranging for a healthy meal.

Consider the dangers! Fast foods, preservatives and pesticides provide no additional nutritional value. Quick fix drugs suppress symptoms and add to the amount of toxins in our body. The toxins in the polluted environment add to the miseries.

These factors result in an overburdening of the body with toxins. And the body’s natural detox system cannot handle the level of toxins on its own. A body burdened with toxins is an invitation to further diseases like allergies, insomnia and asthma. Headaches, fatigue, tension, a coated tongue and acne are also common symptoms that indicate an increased level of toxins in the body.

Regular cleansing of the internal body has become more crucial than ever before. Herbal detox is one method of detoxifying your body naturally. Our ancestors probably knew the threat posed by toxins and even though they were not as exposed to toxins as we are today, they ensured that their diets included detox-friendly herbs. This ensured that the level of toxins in their bodies never really increased beyond manageable levels.

Herbs can help in the detoxification process by aiding the organs that help in natural detoxification. These include the liver, urinary system, digestive systems, skin and lungs. And the herbs used in various detox treatments can be classified based on the organ they work upon. Herbal remediescan be prepared from these herbs based on specific individual conditions.
