What is a detox program and why should you consider getting one?

In the environment that we are living in today, detoxification of major organs and systems is essential to maintaining health. You can take vitamins, supplements, and antioxidants, but you won't see your health turn around if your colon is filled with putrid fecal matter or if your liver and kidneys can't clean toxins out of your blood and perform its daily functions.          

A toxin is anything that is foreign to the body as opposed to friendly to, or part of, the body.  Toxins can originate either in the environment or in the body itself. When the accumulation of toxins results in the manifestation of actual symptoms, people should seek out detox programs. The process and medical condition by which toxins become actively toxic is called toxicosis.

Sources of toxins: endogenous (metabolic and microbial toxins) and exogenous (chemical, heavy metal toxins, radiation).

As potential pathogens, toxins represent a predisposing disease factor. They are almost always silent and symptom-free until they are activated or triggered into disease by trigger factors (emotional imbalance, endocrine/hormonal imbalance, compromised immunity and so on.) toxicosis is a huge factor in the etiology and presentation of many types of disorders today. toxicosis creates entire syndromes that can be correlated with both Western disease conditions and Chinese medical syndromes.
The presence of toxins produces functional, nor organic disturbances, which can be described as various syndromes such as malaise, irritability, fatigue, headaches, digestive problems, sleeping problems, skin issue, changes in urination or bowel movement.
