When it comes to detoxification most people think fad cleanses, hype marketed pills, and loose stools. But detoxification is far more complicated. The cellular detoxification process encompasses; good nutrition, avoidance of environmental toxins (drugs, medications, chemicals, air pollution, etc), effective function of cellular detoxification processes, optimal function of lymphatic systems, effective function of organs of detoxification (liver, kidneys, skin, intestines, etc), and proper elimination of toxins from the body. So if you thought a daily pill or sticking your feet in a foot bath are going to negate a dysfunctional lifestyle, think again. Once again detoxification overlaps with the other 6 Homeostatic Essentials and a vitalistic approach in both disease and wellness will logically trump the medical mechanistic approach when emergencies are not at hand.
