Spring is here and so is our renewed commitment to a healthy lifestyle.
And if there was ever a time for a healthy body detox, it's now. Ever wonder how many toxic chemicals our bodies absorb every day? Well, according to a 2011 report from the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics and some fact-checking from SaferChemicals.org, the average American is exposed to more than 120 chemicals a day, many of which are likely linked to cancer, birth defects, asthma, allergies, and other health problems.
While some toxins are a by-product of where you live, others occur naturally. The good news is our bodies have a natural way of dealing with toxins. And actually, we are our own first line of defense.
So here's something to think about. If our bodies were a business, our kidneys would undoubtedly be the CEO. That's how vital these organs are to our health. The bad news is, our kidneys are one of the most under-appreciated organs in our bodies.
Picture your kidneys as delicate fist sized beans lodged to the left and right of your lower rib cage. These bean shaped organs act as filters and are the last step in your body's natural ability to detoxify itself.
And if your kidneys are functioning under stress, your health can suffer. Healthy kidneys, combined with the liver, free up your body's natural resources to help you fight disease and illness. So why not consider a kidney cleanse?
Did you know the kidney is actually a self-cleaning organ if you consume the right amount of fluids? These can take the form of fruits and their juices, vegetables, lots of water, and kidney teas.
According to Dr. Clark and her approach to self health, a kidney cleanse is a procedure used to dissolve deposits inside the kidneys that can lead to kidney stones. You'll notice kidney cleanses can vary in their approach, but in most cases the cleanse will combine herbs, vitamins and minerals into a synergistic blend to flush out your kidneys.
