Media articles bashing detoxification are becoming a yearly tradition to rival Christmas. The truth is, not only is it possible to boost our bodies' ability to detox – it's crucial for anyone seeking optimum health. And what's one of the best ways to boost your detox system? Herbal medicine! Grab a copy of my free ebook to learn more about why detox is crucial for your health!
Detox: smeared by association
Rather than spend a couple of thousand words picking apart articles like a recent Guardian piece that described detox as "a myth", here are two facts that the anti-detox crowd conveniently overlook.
One: pointing at questionable products like detox foot pads and dodgy 'colon cleanse' tablets in order to heap ridicule on the entire concept of detoxification is simply a trick. There are plenty of great products out there, just as there are plenty of questionable ones. Such 'guilt by association' tactics serve to obscure what detoxification is all about: supporting the body's naturally existing processes to help it get rid of poisonous substances, or toxins. This is best done on a daily basis, through the use of herbs, foods and the right high-quality vitamin and mineral supplements.
Ensuring proper detox is a central part of herbal medicine
If you want to learn more about detoxification and why it's so important in the 21st century, along with some simple, everyday tips and tools to boost your own detox capacity, download my first, free, ebook. All you need to do is provide your email address and sign up to the HerbSmith mailing list. The ebook is called 'The Detox Download', and the first of several parts focuses on the kidneys – one, or more accurately two, of your most important detox organs.
'The Detox Download: Kidney edition' is only meant as a brief primer on detoxification, however. Many people will need a more comprehensive approach to detox on the road to true vitality, often as part of a structured wellbeing programme.
