In the 21st century, body detoxification has taken on many different meanings, from alcohol and drug detox to purging the body of environmental contaminants like heavy metals, plastics, phthalates, and pesticides. From the moment we are born we are exposed to a vast array of toxins which research has started to associate with many physical and mental issues from everything from anxiety to infertility to fibromyalgia.
When it comes to a complete detoxification program, it is important to consider not just the physical removal of toxins, but also the toxic emotions that we hold on to. It is important not to become overwhelmed by fear of toxic exposure, there is only so much we can eliminate but what we can do is to take control of our health by finding safe practical ways to optimise our ability to process, cleanse and release toxins.
Remove a toxic food from your diet, and you may notice a significant change to symptoms of depression or anxiety and the opposite is also true hold on to a toxic belief, and the healthiest diet in the world is unlikely to eliminate you from your symptoms. It is indisputable that are mind and body are intrinsically linked and you cant affect one without the other so it makes perfect sense to work with the whole!
