Your face is an instrumental diagnostic system. It seldom lies about your dietary indiscretions and the body fully eliminates one-third of its alien invaders’ bacteria, viruses and toxins through the skin.
Toxicity refers to the degree to which a substance is poisonous. Any substance that interferes with the normal process of the body has the potential to be poisonous. Homeostasis is the ability of the body to maintain balance. In so doing, there is a flux and flow of chemical reactions within every cell of every living organism. Cells make up tissue and each organ in the body. Cells are the basic functioning unit of that organ or tissue.
The human body has approximately 250,000 billion cells with approximately 35,000 chemical reactions taking place per second within each of these cells and in a healthy normal human being we produce 2 trillion 160 billion new cells every hour.
Many of these reactions are involved in healing and repair. Toxins disturb the natural flux and flow balance of the body’s internal systems, and dependent upon how much toxicity, these internal systems can become instable. The immune system must defend against these toxins. The battle waged by the immune system between toxins and homeostasis is expressed as disease.
Toxins are a major source of disease and the problem is increasing all the time. Thousands of new chemicals are released into the environment and put in our food every year.
When a toxin enters the body the immune system’s first defence is to excrete, or expel, the toxin. This is accomplished through perspiration, saliva, urine, faeces, menstruation, earwax, sinuses, the nose and eyes.
We cannot separate our external surrounding from us, however we can keep our systems clean and in order regularly. Detoxification helps us do that.
When a normal healthy individual experiences issues with their facial skin, often the internal system is compromised.
Detoxification should be something we do regularly. There are many solutions available to detox. It might be as simple as a regular exercise regime or changing lifestyle patterns to incorporate a nutrient dense eating program. Exercise that ensures you sweat is a certain way to release toxicity from within the body and the skin.
The liver is the largest detoxification organ in the human body as well as the largest digestive gland. The toxic scales in blood and lymph can only be filtered by the liver. Cholesterol and triglycerides can only be metabolised by the liver. Excessive toxic scales in the liver can lead to blood contamination, autoimmune disorders and lipid metabolism disorders, removal of toxic scales in the liver can restore clean blood and viscera environment.
There are a number of different avenues that our body takes to protect us against toxins. For example, the immune surveillance and enzyme system uses sweat, breath, bile and urine to process toxins out of the body.
For disorders such as acne, detoxification will allow the immune system to function better and support the skin to heal more quickly and minimise the impact of bacterial contamination on the skin. Clean eating habits and good living are said to be helpful to excrete the toxins inside the body.
For those that suffer with skin issues, detoxification is indispensable.
