The term “toxin” in the context of detox diets is loosely defined. It typically includes pollutants, synthetic chemicals, heavy metals, and processed foods — which all negatively affect health. Your body has a sophisticated way of eliminating toxins that involves the liver, kidneys, digestive system, skin, and lungs.
Dead food and a diet that contains high amounts of sugar, fat and processed food don’t serve your body — they make it work harder and make elimination all the more difficult. These foods clog your colon, cause constipation, affect your blood sugar and poison your blood.
