How Your Body Detoxifies

In my book, Real Cause, Real Cure, I discuss the nine underlying real causes of suboptimal health — and "Real Cause #8" is cellular toxicity.

Toxins are stuff that your body can't use and that can cause health problems if they hang around and gunk up cells.

They include formerly good stuff (such as hormones) that have done their job and been broken down for disposal. They also include bad stuff (such as pollutants and pesticides) that in an ideal world wouldn't have ended up in your body in the first place.

Normally, your body knows how to avoid excess toxins — you take in what you need, and you get rid of what you don't.

Your liver detoxifies, using what are called phase I and phase II detoxification pathways.

Your kidneys detoxify, filtering blood, removing toxins and dumping them into the urine for disposal.

Your skin detoxifies, using millions of sweat glands.

You even detoxify with every breath, inhaling life-giving oxygen and exhaling toxic gases.

Breathing demonstrates a basic fact about detoxification: the body does it automatically. No worries! (Most people can feel free to skip the fasts, enemas and other "detox" purges.)
