I am going to cover some simple steps you want to follow when your detoxing. First the definition of detox is as follows Detoxification (detox for short) It is based on the principle that illnesses can be caused by the accumulation of toxic substances (toxins) in the body. Eliminating existing toxins and avoiding new toxins are essential parts of the healing process. Detoxification utilizes a variety of tests and techniques.

is a common practice and can be done many different ways. Traditionally in cultures before modern society cleanses coincided with the seasons.  The body being of nature really follows the seasons just like all of nature.  We essentially revolve with the cycles of the sun.  In the winter time there is a way to rest the digestion and rest and recharge the body through delicious nourishing bone broths.  Bone broths are a rich mineral source of calcium for healthy strong bones and endocrine balance, phosphorous which is used in energy production and magnesium which is critical in parathyroid health and function.

Bone broths are also rich in collagen and gelatin to help repair connective tissues in the joints, speed up wound healing and repair the coating of the mucus membranes of the digestive tract for any digestive issues or food allergies.

There were not as many toxins a few hundred years ago as there are now. I often see or hear people talk about doing a detox or cleanse and what comes next is how terrible they feel afterwards.  The most common detoxes and cleanses use strong purgative herbs that can be hard for the stomach to digest or can cause lose of water through lose stools.

1. It is important to be physically strong when going through a cleanse or detox regimen.  Make sure you are not sick or getting over an illness.  Some of the herbs used to detox can be taxing on the body especially used longer than a few days.

2. Traditionally spring time is symbolic of renewal and is a common time to do a cleanse. Bitter cleansing herbs tend to be in abundance at this time.  Many of these herbs have been used to stimulate bile production in the liver.  The liver is one of our main filters in the body for dealing with toxins as are the kidneys.
