You might want to ask me, “What is detoxification?”
Basically, detoxification means cleansing of the body’s blood which involves eliminating impurities from the blood in the liver, kidney, lung, intestine, lymph and skin.
What is the first step in achieving “detox”?
You need to reduce the toxins in your body system. Try as much as possible to reduce the consumption or usage of the following: cigarettes, alcohol, coffee, foods rich with saturated fats and refined sugars (present a lot in cola and ketchup) – all these are toxins in the body and most times act in opposition to a condition of perfect state of mind.
