Detoxing is the elimination of toxic or unhealthy substances from the body. Your body has a natural detoxification process that has been functioning long before detoxing became a trending health topic! However, the more you understand your body’s natural detox process the better you will be able to support it.
To begin, metabolism refers to the chemical processes that occur within your body each day in order to maintain life. These chemical processes involve your organs, which are working so you can digest food, breathe, keep warm, eliminate unhealthy substances, etc. Therefore, your body’s natural detox process is a part of your body’s metabolic process. Your organs require and expend energy while executing their daily functions. The more you support the function of these organs, the more efficient they will work, and the more calories you will burn in a resting state.
Did she say what I think she said? Yes, this means there are steps you can take to improve the function of your metabolism and consequently increase the calories you are burning in a resting state. So, your metabolism is not fixed and you are not cursed with a slow metabolism!
The six major organs that play a critical role in detoxing the body are: the liver, colon, kidney, lungs, lymph, and skin. A great start to a sustainable detox plan is to consume foods that support the function of these organs.
Colon (Large Intestine)
Lactofermented Foods (sauerkraut, apple cider vinegar)
Root vegetables (beets, sweet potatoes, turnips)
