Our Bodies Are Exposed To Mega Toxins Everyday

Do you feel tired and run down a lot of the time? Does it seem like no matter what you do, you just don't have any energy? Does your body feel sore and achy for no real reason?

It may just be that your body is saturated with toxins. Our bodies are designed to detoxify naturally. The skin, lymphatic system, lungs, kidneys, liver and intestines all play a role in helping filter out the toxins we encounter on a daily basis.

No other generation has been exposed to as many toxins as ours. Our bodies natural filters can't handle the amount of toxins that we are exposed to every day.

Your Bodies Natural Detox System

The organs that should naturally detoxify our body are being over burdened, due to the amount of toxins we encounter throughout the day. These organs were designed to make sure that any toxins that do get in, would be promptly eliminated. But the over abundance of toxins in todays environment has made it impossible for these natural filters to keep up.

  • Skin - the skin is our bodies largest organ and helps eliminate toxins by sweating them out.
  • Lymphatic System - transports a clear liquid containing white blood cells that filters the body of bacteria, toxins and other waste.
  • Lungs - supply oxygen to the bodies bloodstream and cells. Remove carbon dioxide and toxins.
  • Kidneys - filter toxins from the blood, balance bodies water level, regulate red blood cell production and help regulate the bodies acid level.
  • Liver - produces bile to aid in digestion, store vitamins and iron and produces enzymes that destroy the toxins we encounter on a daily basis.
  • Intestines - absorb water and nutrients and eliminate waste.

So How Can We Help Detoxify Our Body

There are many ways we can help to detoxify our bodies. What we eat is certainly a big factor. So much of our food is processed and has many harmful chemicals added. If we would eat more fresh and organic food it would help cut down on the toxins entering our bodies.

The water we drink has many added chemicals such as fluoride.

The products we use on our bodies. The products we use to cleanse and moisturize our skin and hair are doing more harm than good. The soap, lotion, deodorant, shampoo, makeup etc. contain harmful chemicals. Even the sunscreen that is suppose to protect us from the suns harmful affects, contains toxins.

It is almost impossible to escape all the toxins that are present in our environment today. Our bodies natural detoxifying system is not able to filter out all of the toxins we encounter in a day.

What can we do to assist our body in detoxifying?

Dry Brush First

Before you soak in your detox bath, I recommend that you do a dry brushing. Dry brushing is the process of using a body brush to dry brush you skin from head to toe, before you bathe. This will eliminate many of your dead skin cells, allowing the Epsom Salts and other ingredients to be more easily absorbed. It also stimulates your lymph nodes to help them better eliminate the toxins in your body. You can purchase a Dry Skin Brush for $5 - $15 at Walmart or online at Amazon.

I have another blog that better explains Dry Brushing. Here is the link:

Epsom Salt Detox Recipe

Epsom salt is a pure mineral compound of magnesium sulfate and is easily absorbed into the skin. This helps increase your magnesium levels which is important to the absorption of calcium, hormone balance and cell function. Two of the highest concentrations of magnesium are the heart and brain. So you can see how important it is that we have an adequate supply of magnesium. Sulfates are also important to the formation of brain tissue and joint proteins, while helping rid the body of toxins.

Here are 2 recipes for a good detox bath. You will want to soak in a warm bath for about 35-40 minutes. Do not use soap, as it will defeat the purpose of the detox. You will find that you will feel pretty weak and tired when you first get out of the bath, so you might want to wait until just before bed time. You will feel much more energized when you wake in the morning. The purpose of the Baking Soda is to help cleanse as well as neutralize the chemicals in your water.

Recipe 1:

  • 1 Cup Epsom Salt
  • 1 Cup Baking Soda
  • 10 drops Essential Oil (lavender or Eucalyptus)

Recipe 2:

  • 1 Cup Raw Apple Cider Vinegar
  • 1 Cup Baking Soda

You should do this at least 2 times a week, it will give you so much more energy. I also recommend giving this to children 2-3 times a week, it helps calm them down in the evening.
