Toxins easily enter the body through the food you eat, air you breathe, or by coming into physical contact with these toxins throughout your daily life. Even the healthiest of people are sure to be been exposed to harmful toxins, with surprising frequency. While the body is equipped to rid itself of such toxins, because of the unhealthy lifestyles so many of us lead, our bodies simply cannot keep up. This leads to toxin build-up in our colons, muscles, joints, bloodstream, and internal organs. This is why it is important to cleanse the body through the use of herbs at least once, or multiple times, per year.
Herbs Used To Cleanse The Kidneys:
The kidneys play an important part in eliminating toxins from the human body. The kidneys excrete ammonia and urea, which are created when protein is broken down in the body, hydrogen, carbon dioxide, and bacterial toxins. The kidneys also help to remove toxins from the bloodstream, and help to maintain a body’s overall health.
Herbs that work to cleanse the kidneys are Couch grass, Bearberry (also known as Uva Ursi), Horsetail, Nettle, Parsley, and Corn Silk. Some of these herbs, like horsetail, nettle, and parsley, work as diuretics, while others, including couch grass, uva ursi, and corn silk, help to heal the urinary tract.
Herbs Used To Cleanse The Colon:
The colon is responsible for eliminating waste and bacteria from the body, while balancing a body’s electrolytes and fluid retention. However, due to a poor diet or other factors, the colon can become built up with fecal matter, waste products and toxins. This can lead a person to feeling fatigued, suffering from a lowered immune system and digestive problems, and can also lead to a range of other health problems, including cancer and other illnesses.
There are a number of herbs that are effective at cleansing the colon. Some of these herbs work to remove waste from the colon, while others simply supply an additional fiber source to the body, which helps to move waste and toxins through the colon. Some herbs that remove waste from the colon are cascara sagrada, senna, fennel, aloe vera, red clover, and rhubarb. Herbs that contain large amount of fiber are psyllium and bentonite clay.
Herbs Used To Cleanse The Blood:
The blood is one of the main places that toxins tend to build-up. Toxin build-up in the blood can be due to a poor diet or due to the exposure of toxins in the environment. By eliminating toxins from the blood, you are improving organ function and improving the functioning of many different bodily systems.
Herbs that eliminate toxins from the blood are burdock root, dandelion root, red clover, chickweed, echinacea, choline, cayenne pepper, and garlic. These herbs work by ridding the blood of toxins, while also helping to cleanse the lymphatic system and increase the number of red blood cells in the blood.
Herbs Used To Cleanse The Liver:
The liver helps to body to eliminate toxins, regulates the digestion of fat, and filters toxins and chemicals from the blood. However, a build-up of toxins in the liver can inhibit the liver from performing these tasks, which can affect a person’s overall health. Additionally, if the liver has been greatly damaged, this damage can be irreversible. This is why it is important to be sure to cleanse the liver with the use of natural herbs, in order to keep it performing optimally.
There are a number of herbs that help to the strengthen the liver, improve liver function, and remove built-up toxins. These herbs include milk thistle, turmeric, yellow dock, dandelion root, lycopodium, tincture, golden seal, burdock root, and black radish.
