To cleanse or not to cleanse? Unfortunately, even if we take precautions, such as eating organic whole foods, drinking lots of water and not polluting our bodies with toxins like cigarettes and alcohol, we still live in a pretty toxic world.
It's not just what we put into our body; it's also what we put on our body and what we breathe in. Along with our liver, our skin and lungs are organs that help to remove toxins from our body. They not only help to remove them, they are also how toxins get into our bodies. When we use chemical laden creams, shampoos, make up, toothpaste and deodorant, it all gets absorbed via our largest organ, the skin. Even if you live in the woods, away from smog and fumes, toxins travel can travel via air and water. It's maddening, I know!
SO why are toxins so bad anyway?
