HOW THE BODY NATURALLY DETOXIFIES
THE DETOXIFICATION NETWORK
The primary systems and organs of drainage, detoxification, excretion and elimination are the lymphatic system, the liver, the digestive system and the kidneys. The ability of the body to drain, detoxify and eliminate harmful substances is a prime determining factor of a person’s level of wellness.
Toxins and toxicants are either directly neutralized by the liver or are excreted in the urine or feces. To get to the liver, most of these toxins are transported by the Lymph. It is one of the main routes by which different toxicants, including metabolic wastes, accumulated in the Extracellular Matrix (ECM), find their way to the liver to be processed. Further processing and the safe excretion and elimination of the toxins are dependent on the Gastrointestinal and urinary systems.
RECOGNIZING WHEN A PATIENT NEEDS DETOXIFICATION
Signs and symptoms of a higher burden of toxicity in patients include: general feelings of malaise and feeling unwell, lethargy and low energy, possibly unstable moods and irritability, skin rashes and/or acne and boils, bloating and gas, diarrhea and/or constipation, chronic low grade headache, lack of concentration and/or brain fog.
