Some time ago, the Guardian released an article entitled: “You can’t detox your body. It’s a myth. So how do you get healthy?”
In the article, the author says that: “…detoxing — the idea that you can flush your system of impurities and leave your organs squeaky clean and raring to go — is a scam. It’s a pseudo-medical concept designed to sell you things.”
Is this true? Yes and No.
If all our systems work perfectly then the toxins are not accumulating in the body, but getting safely out with the help of the detoxification organs: our liver and kidneys.
Unfortunately we don’t live in the ideal world: no matter how “clean” you live your life, some buildup of toxins is inevitable.
