Cleanse: Detox Your Body, Mind and Spirit is Available Now in Stores
By Betty Murray
Our environment, the air we breathe, clothes we wear and even the foods we eat can be full of toxins. While our body is designed to eliminate toxins through the liver, when the amount of toxins entering the body become more than the liver can handle, the body creates fat cells to wrap around the toxins.
If you are struggling to lose weight, chances are, your body is holding onto fat that is surrounding toxins. To lose that fat, you must first eliminate those toxins from your body. To eliminate the toxins, it is important to understand their source.
Many toxins in the body come from processed foods, unfiltered water and air pollution. They can also come from household chemicals, cosmetics and a variety of other sources. Toxins enter the body through trans-fatty acids, chemical additives, prescription drugs, alcohol, cigarette smoke, gasoline and even the meats we eat from livestock that are pumped full of estrogen and feed on grains covered in pesticides.
Toxins in the body directly effect the body’s metabolic rate and appetite-regulating systems. The more fat in the body, the more toxins the body can store in that fat and the harder it is to lose weight.
How to Cleanse
There are four steps to cleansing your body of toxins:
• Begin healthy eating habits, and eliminate junk foods, fast foods and processed foods.
• Use a body cleanse to clean the existing toxins from your body.
• Detoxify to neutralize toxins and poisons in the body.
• Rebuild the body’s immune system by consuming pure, healthy foods, free of trans fats and pesticides.
